Triathlon Training Camp, Dundalk Co. Louth 28th February 2016

Suitable for all athletes looking to improve their triathlon performance, gather the latest information on training and racing and learn new skills in a fun, safe environment.

Swim: Video analysis of your current stroke and then the skills, drills and sets to make you faster and more efficient in the pool and in the open water.

Bike: Bike fit checked and then a turbo session to make you stronger and more powerful.

Run: Video feedback to teach efficient running technique, which improves performance and reduces the risk of injuries.

Theory sessions: We will establish training zones for swim, bike and run, cover nutrition (day to day and race day, how to get lean and fast), season planning (periodisation of training and racing, what type of training to do and when to do it), strength and conditioning, recovery techniques and time management.

Athlete Feedback from previous Primed Coaching training camps

Mick Summerville:
Home after spending 2 days with Oliver Harkin at his Tri camp in Lisburn. Really enjoyable weekend, tough but very informative, ran by a very good coach. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to improve their skills to check him out at primedcoaching.

Claire McLernon:
What a great weekend!! Survived bike skills and even managed to swim again after yesterday's circuits. Thanks Oliver Harkin and primed coaching for a super organised camp, highly recommended!!

Brian Murphy:
Can't recommend Oliver Harkin and Primed Coaching enough after a very tough weekend in Lisburn. For anyone who has started on the road of triathlon and would like an insight into the training, nutrition, commitment and technique needed for the sport, give Oliver a shout and do one of his training weekends. I'm stiff, I'm sore and I'm very unfit, but I've taken so much away from the weekend that I can transfer into my own training routines in the pool, on the bike (and on the turbo at home) and my run. Thanks Oliver

Chris McNevison:
