Triathlon Europe was the first company providing altitude training weeks in the French Alps in 2006 and Fiona has utilised the location to produce World Championship winning performances and define new limits for potential with many individual athletes every Summer. Having a decade of knowledge and understanding of cycle routes used by the Tour de France, utilising run trails as raced on by ultra runners in the UTMB combined with pristine pool and lake swimming venues to train at moderate altitude, significant gains in speed endurance and strength for multi-sport are guaranteed. Training limits are redefined after even a short stint in the French Alps, challenging terrain elsewhere in the world will fail to intimidate you as an athlete after a Triathlon Europe Training week!
Our base in the French Alps provides a stunning location for altitude training, a luxury standard of accommodation, inspiring scenery and challenging terrain. Our fundamental philosophy is based around athlete-centric, high quality and individual training provision to achieve significant improvements in performance. It is important to us that every athlete experiences world class training to surpass expectations of what is possible when constrained by time or training limitations in a day to day lifestyle. The physical benefits, increase in skills, confidence, motivation and inspiration taken home from a Triathlon Europe training week at altitude ensures the progression is ongoing after you return home. The added performance value is added to your races when you return in speed and conditioning terms.
We adopt a balanced approach to your training with specific triathlon training sessions in a stunning and often challenging setting. These include lake, open water swimming, coached Swim Smooth sessions in outdoor pools, stunning alpine cycling in mountains made famous by the Tour de France, coached track technical run sessions and endurance trail running. Each day’s training is structured to enable you to obtain the most from training at moderate altitude, based on your individual goals for the season. We do not expect you to complete a triathlon every day, or undertake excessive training volume and subsequently get ill or injured. This is a performance training environment, and your individual strengths and weaknesses inform and guide the emphasis on the training intensity, volume and technical focus!
