Camp includes:

  • Challenging training sessions—swim, bike, and run—alongside Ultraman World Champion & Ironman Champion, Hillary Biscay and 3x Ironman Champion, Maik Twelsiek, a.k.a. “The German Cycling Machine,” and Alyssa Godesky, professional triathlete & TeamHPB coach.
  • SAG support for long rides and pace groups to accommodate intermediate through advanced-level athletes
  • Individualized stroke instruction in the pool during swim workouts
  • Swag, courtesy of our sponsors
  • Two group meals
  • Ask the Pros Q&A roundtable discussion

This is a training-focused camp, rather than a skills-focused camp, although we will certainly have an eye on your skills and give you as much feedback as we can during training sessions.
