Fortius Coaching Triathlon Training Camp, March 5-8th, 2015, Lake San Antonio, California 

Fortius Coaching continues it's annual tradition of preparing its athletes for the triathlon racing season on the Wildflower Triathlon Course in Lake San Antonio just north of Paso Robles, California. The camp takes place over four days with accomodations at the Lake San Antonio Resort on the grounds of the Wildflower Triathlon courses. The camp is geared to provide athletes with 3 solid days of cycling and running and will include swims as long as the water levels are appropriate.  


Benefits of a Triathlon Training Camp:

Focused Training without Distractions:  Leave your regular life behind for a few days and focus on training. No meetings, no agenda, and no obligations. Focused training produces positive outcomes on athletic performance immediately and for several weeks after a training camp has ended.

Access to Quality Coaching:
  Being able to hang out with coaches and other athletes all day long offers a chance how to apply training principles. You will have multiple coaches providing feedback ongoing in the swim, bike, run and transcending to recovery, nutrition, stretching, and yoga. USA Triathlon, USA Cycling, and RRCA Certified Coaches, Gerardo Barrios, Tom Mossman and Ray Barrios will be there to assist every step of the way. 

A Learning Experience:  A great opportunity to learn more about multi-sport, yourself, and your teammates. You will also learn to take your athleticism to the next level as you will have numerous opportunities to challenge yourself.

Quality Training:  Training Camp will leave you much more confident with your overall training. You will know how to approach your swimming, biking and running sessions especially on courses that are similar to the terrain we will be racing on. You will pick up a multitude of practical tips and tricks that will make you faster, better, and smarter! You don't have to be a triathlete to benefit from the camp. Runners and cyclists have numerous opportunities to ride and run.

Rest and Recovery:  You will be surprised how much rest you can actually get when you don't have to execute household chores or run errands. It's also ok to skip workouts and enjoy the serene setting.
