Multisports Orange County (CA): Events & Clinic Info: PERSONAL TRIATHLON TECHNIQUE & TRAINING CAMP (3 or 5 days)

PERSONAL TRIATHLON TECHNIQUE & TRAINING CAMP (3 or 5 days)
Hank Bike Fit
Professiona Bike Fitting
Are you in a rut with your training or improvement? Are you a triathlete with good conditioning but poor technique, pacing, or race strategy skills? Are you training for a key event that you would really like to perform at your top level in? Are you highly inefficient in the water or fearful in dealing with open water? Are you confused by all the technique and training information out there, and don't know what is REALLY important for you to follow? Are you confused with Heart Rate Zone Training or using Power data for the bike? Are you somewhat "burned-out" from doing things the same way for a long time, and need to add some new ideas to your training to re-kindle your motivation? Are you considering doing an Off-Road (Xterra) mountain bike triathlon, but need help with your mountain biking skills?

If you answered YES to one or more these questions then consider signing up for a 3 or 5 day Personal Triathlon Technique & Training Camp with the Multisports OC Staff.

A MULTISPORTS OC PERSONAL TRIATHLON CAMP includes the following:

* Initial interview to discuss training and racing history, upcoming events and goals, and biggest areas of interest for improvement.
* Initial Video Technique Evaluation in each sport (Swim-Bike-Run)
* Instructional videos to view to shorten your learning time.
* 1-2 daily instructional sessions for technique and training development
* 1-2 daily group training sessions with Multisports OC
* End of camp video analysis to see improvment
* Wrap-up interview to discuss suggested follow-up actions to meet your performance goals.
* Free Airport Pick-up and drop-off if coming from out of town (to John Wayne, Orange County, CA SNA).

Here's what athletes have said about the camp:

"All I spent was 3 days with Coach Mike and the improvements he helped me make we're unbelievably helpful. With the new techniques I learned, I am now able to pretty much half my effort and still improve my time. I am now a more efficient athlete and am less prone to injury as well. The program is worth every second if you're interested in moving up in the ranks of triathletes!"

The race went well today. Travis placed 6th overall and 1st in the 1 - 18 male age group with his time of 1:22.40, 6:18 average pace. It was a 4 minute PR for him, and the 1:22 time moved him into the sub-elite category for this race, so it was a good day. Thanks for your help with his form and strategy.
