Training Camps

  • I am a novice triathlete, what level do I need to be to attend a training camp?

    Our camps are aimed specifically at helping athletes with their technique and provide the tools required to continue improving at home and so are suitable for all abilities.

    We assess each athlete at the beginning of the camp and all sessions over the camps are then based on our assessment of your individual needs and so a mix of abilities is not a problem as the coaching is aimed at you and your ability, not generically for the group.

    An open mind, willingness to learn and to enjoy gaining knowledge about yourself and how you can use this to further develop yourself is all you need.

    All our coaching is supported by seminars specific to the sessions and stimulates a lot of discussion and so the focus is on doing the right thing for you, not simply doing as much as you can.

    We cater for all levels, new, experienced and pro athletes.

  • Is there time for me to do my own training whilst attending the training camp?

    Yes, this is fine but we ask that you advise us of your plans.

    We know that all our camps are both physically (depending on your background) and especially mentally challenging and so are tiring; we have found the camp schedule to be sufficient for most attendees – those that do extra become fatigued mid-way through the camp!

  • What is included in the price of the training camp?

    The cost of the camp as listed includes everything whilst you are here with us in Spain covering the dates of the camp selected – we pick up/drop off to Alicante airport, cover the hotel accommodation and food, provide a shared room at the 4 Star Bonalba Hotel and provide all the coaching for the duration of the camp.

    Your coaches also stay with you in the Bonalba Hotel to provide you with unlimited access and support.

    Additional features can be purchased and added to your camp experience, including but not limited to single room occupancy, additional fitness testing and swim video analysis.

    PLEASE NOTE – transfer fees outside camp dates will be charged

  • What is NOT included in the price of the training camp?

    The cost covers the camp in question and there are several optional extras that can be booked, such as extra night’s accommodation in the Bonalba Hotel (this also requires an additional fee for airport transfer due to it not coinciding with dates of the training camp), single room occupancy, bike hire, etc.

  • Is it possible for Masters of Tri coaches to provide a training camp where I live?

    Certainly, we have and do visit various parts of the world to provide training camps.

    We would liaise with you regarding any requirements and expect you to arrange a suitable venue and ensure a group of at least 8 athletes are willing to attend. We can provide you with a schedule and plan dates, etc. Please email us for further information.

  • When do I pay for the training camp?

    50% of the camp cost is made at the time of booking and the remaining 50% four weeks before your camp start date. Bookings close when each camp fills.  We do not hold reservations. We cap camps at 8 athletes, so each athlete gets their own individual attention and advice.

    Trisutto coached athletes receive a discount on camp bookings.  Please contact your coach for your discount code.  Please note, this must be entered into the coupon code field during checkout, to receive your discount.

  • What are the cancellation terms if I cannot attend the training camp?

    Our standard refund policy on camps is as follows: Full refund if more than 60 days before camp start date. 50% refund if 60 – 30 days before camp start date. If less than 30 days, then on a case by case basis, but due to short notice our standard policy is no refunds, as our camps did sell out last year. ** less credit card processing fees incurred. Transfer between camps is available if there are places available.

Online Coaching

  • What qualifications do Martin and Matt have?

    Martin:

    • BTF Level 3 Triathlon Coach
    • Certified Trisutto Coach
    • Personal Trainer

    Matt:

    • IRONMAN Certified Coach
    • ASA Swim Coach
    • Personal Trainer
    • Working towards being a Certified Trisutto Coach
  • Can I select to be coached by either Martin or Matt?

    Yes, providing that your choice is available; to provide the best bespoke service, we limit how many athletes we coach and so if one of us is “full”, the other will provide your coaching.

    Masters of Tri coaches, Martin and Matt, are a team, and work together, advising and questioning as required to provide you with our best knowledge, you will get the best from either!

  • How do I enquire about coaching?

    Simply email either Martin or Matt, email address link here, for more information with no obligation. Before fully committing to anything we will send you a questionnaire and have follow-up emails and/or Skype or phone calls to fully understand your needs.

    We establish your goals, work and life commitments, current training levels and get to know as much about you so that we can develop the best programme that suits your needs.

  • How do I sign-up for coaching?

    The sign-up process is to simply purchase the coaching product required and this will take you to a secure payment link (using Stripe) where you can pay for as many months coaching you require – this can be done monthly or “in bulk”

    There is no minimum period of commitment and the coaching can be cancelled at any time. Athletes can also request their coaching to be placed ‘on hold’ should they wish to take a break by emailing us.

  • Are all sessions included in the training programme?

    Yes, all the details – duration, intensity, etc for all the swim, bike, run, brick, etc are fully covered for every session, every day and are presented weekly to allow feedback and adaptation as necessary.

    Sport specific strength work is primarily covered in swim, bike and run sessions with the use of swim paddles, hill sessions, etc, but if necessary, and if requested, mobility and strength sessions can be provided, again fully described.

  • I have been injured and have a re-habilitation programme, will this affect my training programme?

    No, not necessarily as we work with your physio to ensure we incorporate any specific re-hab work into the programme and account for any recommendations for what to do / not to do.

  • How are training programmes presented?

    Your training programme will be presented in Excel and emailed to you weekly or on interactive Google docs (changes needed due to your changing circumstances may be emailed separately). We will explain the content of the programme that will cover everything you need to know about how we will be developing your programme.

    For your programme to continue to help you improve, it is important that you provide feedback to your coach, and this will also be explained in the athlete information pack you will receive.

  • How are the intensities of sessions within training programmes presented?

    We can work with any tools you already have – heart rate monitor, power meter, etc. However, we prefer to help you to learn how to know your own body and how it feels to be doing the sessions we prescribe; the tools can be used to help you acquire this skill; i.e. using your own perception of effort.

    Tools are great, but can and do go wrong, learning how to control your body and effort, knowing when to hold yourself back and when to push hard, is an important skill that will help you far more than any electronic device which cannot consider your current condition, especially in a race situation.

  • How quickly should I expect to see improvements in my performance?

    This will vary depending on your current level of fitness, your training background, etc. However, most of your initial training will include a lot of aerobic training and you should start to see, and feel, improvements after a few weeks of consistent training. This will continue to be the case and, depending on the time of you have, your race schedule, etc we will introduce some harder training to build on your developing aerobic efficiency.
