Spend a week with us in beautiful Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont Florida.  This park offers 4,000 acres of trails, lakes and streams but also a lightly travelled beautiful paved road for group runs.  The Camp will be limited to 12 athletes and you will stay in lovely cabins overlooking Dixie Lake.  No phones, no TV, no internet, just training and relaxing is on the agenda. The Camp is focused on running and swimming but cycling in the Park is excellent with 15k of roads throughout should you choose to bring a bike. Subject to transportation we will have a bike ride (rental bikes) on the West Orange Trail to tease you for the upcoming season. The Camp would be a week long and include:

  1. Coached Workouts: Daily coached workouts each morning, including a swim at the National Training Center’s outdoor 50 meter pool and world class running track.
  2. Individual Reviews: Stroke analysis and running analysis for each athlete. We will gather in the evenings for social time on the deck and a review of the day’s videos.
  3. Season planning: We will work together to help you develop a detailed plan for the coming season.
  4. Training Education: We will offer 3 workshops on various training topics selected by the group
  5. Hiking: We will offer a guided hike of the amazing Lake Louisa State Park, the trails are awesome and the plants and wildlife fascinating.
