    Comments:  I loved the Swim Smooth training camp. I learned a lot and this is making a major difference in my swim now. Super friendly atmosphere, lovely people, great location, the coaches take you seriously and are very positive and supportive (whatever your level). You'll feel like like an athlete training and "living the dream" in Mallorca like the pros do (and the world champions were eating at the table next to ours !). I cannot recommend strongly enough. Looking forward to going back

    Comments:  I had the most fantastic week on Tri Camp and fully recommend it to anyone considering a week away training in the sunshine. The coaches are fantastic, as are the location and accommodation. The Tri Camp team manage to strike a great balance between serious training and relaxing/fun so the overall experience is amazing and you feel you have achieved a lot whilst having a holiday at the same time. I learnt so much both from the coaches and the other guest triathletes. The cycling in Mallorca is incredible, the sea is right on the doorstep, and I met people I've since become great friends with - so absolutely 10 out of 10!

    Comments:  Spent a fantastic week with the Challenge Tri Camp team. Coaching staff are all great and the facilities and hotel were perfect. I'd never been on anything like this before, I was a bit nervous as whether it was going to be for me, but it was brilliant. The people we met on the camp were lovely and we've all stayed in touch keeping track of everyones own achievements in events over the year. The best compliment I can give is that we have already booked for next year and we're bring another two friends with us. My withdrawal symptoms were clearly great as I continued my coaching with Nick, with a brilliant training programme devised for me over the summer. I'm certainly not a high level athlete (far from it!!), but the improvements in my own personal performance was amazing. Cannot wait for next year.

    Comments:  I learned a lot about hill climbing technique (always had a bit of a mental battle with them!). I really enjoyed the brick sessions too. The swim will always be my Achilles heel, it was good to get 3 decent sea swims and solid pool time. You have this training camp stuff nailed.

Above everything, Nick has a team of highly motivated yet personable coaching staff who make the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable, as well as an effective training holiday.

    Comments:  I really enjoyed the Challenge Tri Camp a lot! Great week! I learned a lot from the coaches (thanks again Nick, Mike & Simon) as well as from all the participants. Great group and great support from everyone. Felt totally energized and inspired after the camp. Since I am not a native English speaker I would also like to mention that the coaches were aware of me not being a native English speaker and they were very supportive and now and then checked with me to make sure that I understood what they were saying - thanks a lot for that as well, very much appreciated! Well, and now it's about trying to incorporate all the tips in my training ... hm, I might need a "refresher camp" next year :-)

Accommodation, food, coaching and sunshine are all fab and we all gained so much – whether it be how to corner, go up or downhill, swim in the sea or just swim in a straight line!

    Comments:  Firstly and most importantly thank you for a truly fantastic holiday/training week. We both really enjoyed ourselves and are sad now that we are back in the cloudy wet uk. But happy in our hearts that we had the opportunity to spend the week at Tri Camp and to meet you, Tom and the rest of the team. We have nothing but positive feedback to send to you to the point of it was our best holiday/break away we have ever had together.
