Trimarni Greenville Skills Camp Info (and a free camp entry giveaway!)

In case you haven't heard, we have a little gem of a triathlon training playground here in Greenville. 



Although it's no longer a well kept secret as I am no stranger to sharing pictures of us training in and around the mountains, surrounded by nature, the Greenville community embraces cycling and physical activity. People love riding bikes in Greenville, we have a number of beautiful state parks and hiking trials and the Swamp Rabbit Trail is perfect for active families for walking, running and biking. 



We have an award winning (dog-friendly) downtown and Falls Park is absolutely breathtaking. When you come to Greenville, you will experience amazing mountain views, delicious farm-to-table restaurants and very friendly people. And we have Mr. Lama - a lama who loves cyclists and selfies. 




We have received many requests over the past few years regarding the need for a skills camp. We listened to you and responded with our first ever Greenville triathlon skills camp this May. 



Greenville Skills Camp
Quick Facts
Location: Greenville, SC

Length of camp: 2.5 days

When triathletes hear skills camp, they may think "beginner" camp. Sure, athletes who are new to the sport of triathlon will greatly benefit from attending a skills camp. But from our experience as coaches, we have discovered that many experienced triathletes and those who have been in the sport for many, many years have created bad habits over the years, have neglected the importance of fine-tuning skills as fitness progresses and/or have not kept up with current trends and strategies to train smarter.

Skill areas that we commonly focus on at our camps include:

Swimming technique, open water skills, bike handling skills (climbing, descending, cornering, riding safely in a group, anticipating terrain changes), bike pacing, running skills (climbing hills, running downhills, proper form, running off the bike tips), running execution off the bike, triathlon training and racing tips, how to use gadgets properly, mental skills training, equipment choices (where to spend your money), sport nutrition and daily nutrition. 

Our Greenville skills camp is designed to provide triathletes of all fitness levels with hands-on opportunities to develop the basic and most necessary skills to experience success, improve overall safety and health and to build confidence in the sport of triathlon. Our goal is to help triathletes break bad habits and integrate new swim, bike and run skills into current triathlon training in order to reduce risk for injury/health issues, to improve your fitness and to improve your confidence as a developing triathlete.

If you want to get faster, stronger and better as a triathlete, it's important to become more skillful as a triathlete. 

From our experience in working with athletes of all levels, every triathlete has A LOT of room for improvement. Instead of training harder or adding more intensity or volume to your training in order to get faster, we want to help triathletes learn how to train and race smarter. 

By improving your triathlon skills in a safe, supportive and educational environment with two experienced triathlon coaches, you can train more confidently, reduce risk for injury by improving economy, feel safer as a cyclist on the road, and finally experience those big performance gains that you have been working so hard to achieve.
