07 – 14th MARCH 2018
Triathlon Performance Solutions (TPS) enters it’s 7th year for the annual training camp at Playitas resort in Fuerteventura.
After a successful 2017 camp, with athletes joining us from Iceland, Israel, UK, USA, Europe and NZ the camp is becoming an international destination for athletes. With coaching and logistical support from team TPS the camp provides each athlete with a kick start to their season. The camp will focus on many topics including season planning, nutrition, swim technique, overtraining and how to make triathlon a lifestyle. Athletes get the chance to get a quality week of training specific to their training and racing goals. Fuerteventura provides a fantastic training environment that allows TPS to run a fun training camp.
Each athlete is assessed by filling out a questionnaire on application to make sure that the coaches have an idea of ability and what each athlete feels they need to work on or if they simply want more information on a certain topic.
Join TPS for our 7th edition of Total Triathlon Camp (TTC). Book early and secure your spot.
Playitas is easily accessible, with many flights from the UK and elsewhere in Europe, which makes this a training mecca that is internationally recognised by some of the top triathletes.
