    Comments:  Both Neil and Steve have been fantastic and I feel really lucky to have worked with such high quality, inspiring coaches and athletes. I don't think I've ever trained at that intensity over 1 week but through their encouragement and support I was able to do much more than I thought possible. The combination of the 50m pool and the open water sessions in the sea were just perfect and I'm sure my technique has benefited from your input, video and drills. The cycling has been amazing!!! Some really challenging terrain but you're rewarded with stunning views and some spectacular descents;-) I think I've clocked up 265 miles with some ridiculous elevation gain. Again, I would not have achieved this without such fantastic support. For me, the run was not a real focus this week (I've been on camps where too much running has led to injury). Having said that, what we have done has been quality. Running off the bike and the track session I feel were of definite benefit, as well as the regular stretching. I also need to mention Tony; He has been an absolute legend! Again, his support and organisation has been invaluable! Thanks to Nikol also for great communication and work behind the scenes. I will certainly be recommending Sports Holidays Cyprus as a great venue for a Tri camp. Everything is in place to make it the number one destination for an alternative warm weather training camp! I wish you every success for the future! I will keep in contact and no doubt we'll meet again (some sunny day).

    Comments:  We’re just back from an excellent week with Sports Holidays Cyprus. Nikol and Tony could not have done any more to make the trip run smoothly - we had good communication before we arrived, were met at the airport on time and Tony was waiting for us at our hotel to run through the week and get us set up with our rental bikes. Throughout the week Nikol and Tony were on hand to make sure the bike sessions went well and that everything ran smoothly. Our coach (Vassilis Krommidas) was excellent - he is calm yet really motivating and gave some great advice. I would definitely recommend a training camp with Sports Holidays Cyprus.
