QT2 Systems, LLC, leading provider of triathlon training and nutrition services, and the group that put 27 athletes on the 2012 Kona starting line, has announced its training camp schedule for the upcoming 2013 season. Each of QT2 Systems’ training camps are located in triathlete friendly areas, with ample swimming, biking, and running opportunities available. Athletes are treated to first-rate mechanic services, professionally licensed massage therapists, and superb accommodations. At each training camp athletes are welcome to attend training and/or nutrition talks, presented by our coaches and/or Registered Dietitians. Each camp also offers an analysis component, be it swim technique, bike fit, running form, or physiology.
The 3rd annual training camp, in Clermont, FL, will take place February 7-10th, in the heart of Florida’s hilly country. Escape the winter monotony of the indoor trainer with a long weekend of riding on rural farm roads, and swimming in the outdoor pool of the National Training Center, former southeast location of USA Triathlon. This camp will feature a timed 5k running time trial at the National Training Center’s track facility. Typical February temperatures, for Clermont, FL, are in the low to mid-70s, with plenty of sun.
The 1st annual training camp in Tucson, AZ is set for April 25 -28th, near the University of Arizona and Mount Lemon. The average temperatures for Tucson in April range from a low in the mid 50′s to a high most days in the upper 70′s to low 80′s, with low humidity and plenty of sun. We’re very excited to add this new camp location to our offering for 2013, and beyond.
The 2nd annual training camp in Lake Placid, NY, will run June 27-30th, on the swim, bike, and run courses of Ironman Lake Placid. This camp is scheduled perfectly for a peak weekend of training into July 28th’s race, and serves as an excellent build up for, Mont Tremblant, Louisville, and Canada. It is also an excellent option for athletes preparing for a late season 70.3. The Lake Placid training camp will feature an aquabike competition, consisting of a time trial swim through one loop of the Ironman course, as well as our famed “15 Minutes of Pain” bike TT. Athletes will also have their bike positions analyzed, using state of the art coaching software. This was a great camp in 2012, from both a training and course preparation standpoint. Don’t miss out!
The 6th annual Ludlow, VT training camp will take place August 22-25th, in the hills of the Green Mountain State. This camp is ideal for the athlete who is training for a big late season event, and features a 1-mile open water swim time trial, at Plymouth State Park, and a very challenging bike time trial up Tyson Road. Athletes will also have the opportunity to look at their underwater swim technique, through video analysis. This camp is a favorite among triathletes, and brings athletes along beautiful and challenging country roads.
Each camp has a limited capacity, and will likely sell out quickly! For more information on any of QT2′s training camps, or to sign up, visit the QT2 camps area on the QT2 website here: Triathlon Camps.
