Here is what some athletes said about the 2009 P2P training camp
“The price was great for the whole weekend. Everything was run really well, lots of food, lots of coach contact time etc.”
“Was good to learn so much about the race and other aspects i.e. nutrition.”
“The evening presentations contained a lot of information that was new to me, and that will help me immensely to prep for the actual race. The biggest point for me was learning about race nutrition (how much and when to fuel myself).”
“To sum it up: I learnt a lot of lessons about myself, the sport, equipment and nutrition. I am so glad I joined you! The knowledge I gained during the camp will allow me to prepare well for the actual P2P race and other races.”

What’s different this year?
At Exponential Performance Coaching it’s all about improving performance and getting better. So this year there will be a few changes to the camp to make it better for you.

1/ Accommodation: After feedback from last year’s camp it was found that 3 athletes per room was a bit cramped, so this year we plan to sleep 2 athletes per room so things are a bit more comfortable.
2/ This year’s camp will include a Peak 2 Peak specific sweat rate assessment. This will allow detailed calculation of your sweat rate in the specific environment you will be racing in. From this information we can tailor your hydration plan for optimal performance.
3/ Presentations: It has been a year since the last P2P evening presentations and these have been altered to include the latest up to date information to aid your performance + some special topics on the latest sport science information.

- The space on this training camp is limited to 8 athletes, so entrance into the camp is on a first in first severed basis.
- Please register your interest by Friday the 11th June so bookings can be made.

If you have any questions please let me know
