Savage Triathlon Camp Announcement!

I am happy to announce that I will be joining close friends, training partners, and fellow Pittsburgh-area based coaches, Chad Holderbaum, Kim Schwabenbauer, and Matt Mauclair for the inaugural Savage Triathlon Camp in Deep Creek Maryland over Memorial Day weekend of 2012! As far as I know, this camp will be the first of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region and more specifically in the beautiful mountains and pristine training grounds of Western Maryland, and the camp will be hosted by some of the the region's most elite long distance triathletes and coaches. We have been heading to the Deep Creek region for personal training camps for years and have found it to be an ideal training venue during the summer months - we have covered many miles of Garrett County Maryland by stroke, pedal, and stride, and know that this will present a great challenge and incredible training/learning experience for all lucky athletes in attendance!

The camp will be run by USAT and ITCA certified triathlon coaches with decades of cumulative coaching and racing experience, and is sure to be a key component to a successful 2012 build toward your racing goals, while also an invaluable learning experience for new and established triathletes alike. Please take a look at the camp's homepage for a tentative itinerary and pricing structure. Camp cost includes swim video analysis, pool access to the Community Aquatic and Recreation Center, bike fit assessment, and running gait video analysis. In addition to the individual attention received, you will attend coaching lectures on nutrition and training as well as participate in group swim, bike, and run sessions with fellow campers of comparable skill/fitness levels. The cost for the camp does not include food, lodging, or transportation. Savage Tri Camp is a USA Triathlon sanctioned camp, therefore athletes must either have a USAT annual membership or purchase a one day USAT license membership for $10.00.

I hope all of you will consider joining us for this ultimate, Savage training experience next June in Deep Creek, but act soon as camp attendance will be capped at 30 athletes! Please comment or contact me for additional details. Happy training and preparation for 2012!
