Triathlon Training Camps

Triathlon training camps are run by Geelong Triathlon Coaching and Enduranceteam.net. Successfully running over 50 triathlon training camps since 1996.  Utilizing venues, like Anglesea, Lorne, Halls Gap, Cairns, Bright, Falls Creek, Merimbula, Bendigo, Queensland, Jindabyne and Thredbo these camps have provided athletes with the opportunity to explore different training environments, new challenges and more often than not, the chance to experience what life is like as a ‘full time’ athlete.  We run these camps exclusively for enduranceteam.net athletes and for all ages and abilities.

Triathlon training camps show below some photo’s and snippets from previous training camps and also some great experiences over the years, PLUS the latest updates and NEW camps up-coming.  Our training camps are renowned as being very challenging but they are highlighted by the opportunity to train day in and day out with team mates, to feed off them, to give support and be supported by them and be inspired to greater things that you thought possible before coming.  Great results, come from great sacrifice, its time to sign up.

Falls Creek Camp Completed

Our 2013-2014 Bright-Falls Creek Triathlon Training Camp has come to a close. Between December 27th 2013 and January 11th 2014, for 17 days over 30athletes attended the camp with athletes of all ages and abilities. With some of Victoria’s best training locations on our doorstep including Victoria’s 3 peaks (Falls, Hotham and Buffalo) it was indeed challenging but highly rewarding for all the athletes attending. The performance rewards off such a camp are almost immeasurable and each athlete who attends takes not only confidence, but another level of fitness and experience. We have included some photo’s below and there are more on the enduranceteam Facebook page. Our next training camp will be in mid 2014 so stay tuned.

This training camp had a technical focus, so completing 3 sessions per day, including underwater swim filming, run filming and analysis and other x-training activities wasn’t at all a stretch for the athletes, and we made sure there was plenty of time for coffee shop time.

With all 5 of our enduranceteam triathlon coaches attending it was a great learning environment, coupled with some very hard and measured training. Bright and Falls Creek at two of the most picturesque training grounds in the world and each year we are privileged to be able to take a group up there. The attending athletes this year all made significant improvement and this has been shown with some amazing performances off the back of the camp with age group Australian titles and elite race wins. With perfect weather and some of the best training grounds for training the camps we run are second to none and plans are already underway for our next Altitude Training Camp in Bright/Falls Creek at the end of 2013. .

We had 20 athletes from all over Australia attend the camp for 17 Days, and the athletes not only had lifetime experiences but in the weeks that followed all achieved PB results over varying distances in racing.  Our ‘altitude camps’ are not for the faint of heart and the training is hard, and long, but the results are always exceptional and 2012 was no exception.  More photo’s and reports can be seen below and also on our Facebook Page.

2012 Lorne Training Camp – Completed

Picture

The 2012 Lorne Training Camp has been ‘run and won’ over the Queens Birthday Long Weekend. With our friends at Tri-alliance we had over 65 athletes and 8 coaches complete 3.5 Days of training in cold and sometimes wet conditions, but it is fair to say that they loved every minute of it. The athletes were not only treated to some great training and support, they were also provided the chance to listen to some great guest speakers as well. This is the 12th year, we have run this camp, and each year it gets better and better, with different athletes each year, sharing many great experiences. Hopefully this camp will provide the foot-hold for many of the training and racing experiences coming up in the 2012 / 2013 Season.

2011 Bendigo Training Camp – COMPLETED

Picture

October 20th 2011 – October 23rd 2011
Over 4 Days we, had our maximum of 20 athletes again experience life as a full time athlete.  We had 8 people attend their first training camp with us, and from all reports they loved every minute and one lady at the end of the camp (her first with enduranceteam) was quoted “I have just learned more in 4 Days, than i have in the last 3 years”.  That says volumes about what our camps provide and the coaches that work on them, to make the experience for everyone valuable.  There aren’t to many camps around, that allow beginners to complete the same sessions as VIS and AIS triathletes and then all sit around for a great team dinner at the end of the day.  Camp photo’s and updates all posted on our team facebook page here; http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/enduranceteamnet/238474558263

2010 June – Lorne Triathlon Training Camp COMPLETED

Picture

Well one of our biggest training weekends has come to a close for another year.  The on-going partner-ship with Tri-alliance has seen us run another Lorne Training Camp with sell out numbers and some great training completed.  It was arguably our best ever!  The weather wasn’t overly great at the start with on and off rain for Friday and Saturday, but it cleared up to provide some of the best weather we have had over the years.  With nearly 60 athletes down there over the 3.5 days including some of the best juniors in Australia – it was competitive, but more importantly everyone had fun, including plenty of new tracks and activities to have a go at.  We had over 30 first timers to this camp, and from all reports, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Training, eating, sleeping non stop for 3.5 days can be a bit daunting for those who have never done it – but everyone seemed to welcome the challenge.

Once again, as we have now on 39 previous occasions – we have run the best training camp in Victoria.

A big THANK YOU, to Ollie, Sarah, Jono, Bo, Paul and Stephane who have all helped out with various things over the course of the weekend.  The camp would not run as smoothly as it does without an enormous amount of co-ordination and assistance.

Halls Gap Triathlon Training Camp – November 2009

This year, 12 athletes attended our 4th Training Camp for 2009, training and preparing in some very hot conditions and some unseasonal stinking temps for this time of the year.  The 5 Day Training Camp in the Grampians, in the Victorian mountain ranges was open to our Victorian and Interstate athletes and again preparing then for up-coming events and also the beginning of speacific preparations for events early in 2010.  Covering indoor and outdoor swim sessions, underwater and above water filming, lake swims, mountain climbs, time trial position analysis, bio-mech analysis, skinfolds and much much more this camp had a bit of everything.  Thanks to all the athletes and sponsors who came to and supported the camp.  Keep en eye on this page for more details for this camp in 2010.

Cairns Triathlon Training Camp – September 2009

In preparation for the 2009 Hawaiian Ironman and the 2009 Gold Coast Half Ironman, we took a smaller group of athletes to Palm Cove about 25km just outside of Cairns to prepare for Hawaii and also the Gold Coast Half Ironman.  We ran the live in camp over 2 weeks and enjoyed perfect weather, a Geelong Cats Grand Final win, and an improvement right across the board from all our athletes.  We ran this camp in a different format to what we usually run them in, but the desired outcomes will hopefully still be there when the time comes to perform on race day.  We will be running this type of camp in 2010 for a similar number of athletes (<10), so if you want to maximize your preparation for an event, in one of the best training environments in the world – this might be for you.  Keep checking the website out for more details.



Lorne Triathlon Training Camp – June 2009

Hi All,

Once again, we have had another fantastic Lorne Training Camp, with over 55athlete’s and in a very lucky twist some very very good weather.   With weather predicted to be feral, Lorne again turned it on for us, and the planned storms and rains seemed to go right around us.  Given that most athletes were well underdone, for this camp to cover 11 sessions in 3 days was a very very good effort.  With 3 different levels I think it worked very well, although next year we will look at the possibility of having 4 different levels.  Recovery from this training camp is now very important so make sure you look after yourselves over the next week to make you can fully benefit from the 4 Days of hard training.  I have noted the feedback from the camp, and will make changes to next year.

Some great pictures below, thanks to our on the spot photograph hunters.



Brisbane Triathlon Training Camp – May 2009

Picture

Over the 4 days I worked with our athletes Thommo, Penny, Julie, Tara and Linda on all things technical in triathlon.  I must say with the use of some very good facilities and certainly a great environment in which to train they certainly have some very good resources and an enjoyable training environment at their disposable.  The purpose of this trip was to actually meet for the first time, some of the athlete’s athletes who I have been working with for quite some time via correspondence coaching, and put training faces to names.  Covering 8 Sessions in 3 days, we addressed swim skills and mechanics, bike sessions, and run skills, mechanics and testing under fatigue.  Using cameras and recording a lot of information, it was very beneficial for me to take this data, have it on record and review it when I get home.  Given the quality of these 5 (with all being ironman, national or world age group winners or placegetters) the reliance on me providing them with feedback that they could use within their home environment was very important.  Rather changing the way they do things, it was more about adding value to what they are already doing, and me having the chance to relay some of my theories and practices in high performance coaching.  My plan is to hold another one of these 4 Days camps in October this year.  I may open the next one up to a few of our Victorian athletes.


Triathlon Training Camp, Thredbo Altitude Camp – January 2009

Between January 25th and February 3rd 2009, www.enduranceteam.net took a group of elite and age group athletes to Thredbo NSW for Altitude Training.  This was the 38th camp that has been run over the 12 years of our squad training and this was again a great experience for all.   With a small but dedicated crew, the group trained hard, in perfect warm weather and with some of the best training grounds for bike and run in the world including runs to the top of Australia’s highest mountain at 2228metres (pictured above).   The group also trained at the AIS swim facility for the period of the training camp, and got the benefits of swimming at altitude in an indoor 50m Pool.  With athletes greatly varying in ability, and also in their up coming target races, all athletes took real physical and mental benefits away from the camp.  Stay tuned for more camps and news shortly.



Halls Gap – August 2007

Some of the crew from 2007 Halls Gap about to take off on a training ride.  We have used Halls Gap on 6 occasions and each time it gets better and better.  With a great group and plenty of hard training, everyone comes away from these with a buzz about whats ahead.
