Each Swim Smooth Clinic and Swim Smooth / Triathlon Camp is based in the spectacular and peaceful mountains close to Alicante in Spain.
The Clinics provide a unique training opportunity to develop your swimming and triathlon performance and boost motivation. Every event includes a full Swim Smooth Clinic presented and structured to allow you to put into practice the new skills following the ‘theory’ presented during the seminars
For more information email Martin for an outline schedule
Each athlete will have their stroke filmed in High Definition and then analysed (see video analysis for more information); the analysis will be provided on DVD for you to take away but the week’s coaching in the pool will focus specifically on areas that need to be addressed. Further pool sessions will cover pace awareness and Critical Swim Speed (CSS) / threshold training to really develop your speed. To complement the pool sessions there will be coached sessions in open water to develop confidence, starts, drafting, turning and racing skills.
For the Swim Smooth / Triathlon Clinics, coached bike, run and strength / conditioning sessions are included for a challenging week of training. Bike rides will include the excellent roads in the local area that have often been used in La Vuelta Espana (three stages in 2010 used the immediate area that provided the most mountainous days of the 3-week tour). Guided and coached rides will also provide opportunities to stop and relax in local cafe’s – if required!
Run sessions will use local on- and off-road routes, whilst triathlon specific strength and conditioning sessions will be coached within the grounds of Almoraig, the base for the training camp. These sessions will provide the athlete with the skills and knowledge required to enhance overall performance, using a range of equipment.
The camp will be limited to 4 athletes to ensure a high quality training week with Martin.
Every event includes accommodation and full board, all transport in Spain and coaching to provide excellent value; Note that flights are NOT included.
