The bespoke triathlon training weeks are designed to enable you to balance your training and leave time to enjoy your holiday with a partner or family. Each session is planned well in advance; you will be contacted by the coaching team before you depart so that your individual program can be structured according to your needs and ensure you achieve your goals.

Speaking about the programme McFarlane said “The camps will be bespoke and based on the individual skills and performance levels of the participants, this personalised service is key to successful triathlon training."

Swimming clinics will be supervised by Kypros with the aim to develop your current skills and improve your swimming efficiency.
