This fall – October 22-29, 2010 - I'm presenting a triathlon camp in Scottsdale, Arizona where I spend my winters. This is not your standard swim-bike-run camp. It focuses on exactly what I do with the athletes I coach at the start of their winter training. I have each of them come to Scottsdale to spend a few days with me. During this 'personal camp' there are five things we do. Each athlete is tested for VO2max and other important physiological metrics. Each also has a physical assessment by a physical therapist who looks for potential injuries and areas where strength, range of motion or other interventions could improve performance. I also have a bike fit done for them by a professonal fitter. We work on their speed skills in all three sports using video analysis. And finally we spend a lot of time discussing the keys to their success in the coming season. This last point typically involves mental skills, nutrition, understanding the training program they will follow and much more. By the time the camp is done I always feel as if we are a great deal closer to achieving the athlete's goals. I think you'll feel that way, also.
Scottsdale in late October is beautiful. Temperatures are typically in the 70s and 80s (20-30C) with gentle breezes and blue skies. You'll say at a local resort.
We haven't got the website up and running yet, but I wanted to give you a heads up. Due to the intense nature of this camp it will be strictly limited to 20 triathletes. Watch for details to be coming soon.
