LPC Florida Triathlon Camp
Orlando & surrounding areas of Kissimmee & Clermont, Florida
March 5th to 12th, 2016

2016 campLPC online registration opens on July 15th, 2015


Loaring Personal Coaching (LPC) offers a one week triathlon training camp in paradise for the beginner to experienced triathlete. Campers will be spoiled by the accommodations, and neighbouring surroundings, of Emerald Island Resort, scenic rolling roads for cycling, surreal orange grove running trails, and open water swimming at the world famous Orange Lake Resort. Lake Louisa State Park is the utopian spot for an interval "brick" workout. The National Training Center, and the 350 meter River Island Pool, will be home to technical swims that will feature stroke correction, above water and underwater video analysis, and open water simulations.

Although campers will be busy training, learning, and recovering, occasional afternoons and evenings will be open to enjoy the plethora of restaurants and attractions that has made Kissimmee, Florida, an international tourist Mecca. This is the perfect camp for the triathlete looking to learn from Certified Professional Coaches, get a fitness and inspirational boost on the upcoming season, and enjoy favourable weather and training in paradise surroundings. It is also the ideal camp to bring friends, family, and significant others, as there are numerous attractions and shopping destinations to keep anyone and everyone entertained.

Our goal is to provide the ultimate warm weather multi-faceted triathlon training camp that is educational, inspirational, and fun. A March Break camp in warm weather provides the perfect opportunity for aerobic pre-season training, and to improve your technical skill set in all three of triathlon's disciplines. Although Walt Disney World is located only three miles from camp headquarters, you won't even have to see Mickey Mouse to leave Florida with a long-lasting smile.

“The LPC Training Camp far exceeded my expectations in every regard. The Coaching staff was expert in their respective fields, and provided excellent hands on instruction. The Camp provided an opportunity to improve upon technique, and to obtain a great fitness base for the upcoming race season.
I will definitely return!” Keith Henry, camper and triathlete

Camp LPC accommodations take place at Emerald Island Resort (EIR), only three miles from Walt Disney World..

Once inside you feel as if you have entered a special preserve. Emerald Island is surrounded by a Conservation Area and encompasses over 300 acres with 11 heavily wooded acres right in the middle of the community.

Only a few miles from Walt Disney World and a short walk or drive to shopping and dining, this "island" serves as a haven from the larger world while remaining central to everything the world's most popular destination has to offer.

All campers are encouraged to stay in EIR, either in one of the reserved LPC camp houses, or in a house that you rent on your own. However, numerous accommodation options are available within close proximity of EIR. Rooms will be reserved for athletes after they pay the camp deposit. EIR provides three-to-seven bedroom housing for those who wish to book their own accommodation. Housing options range from three-star to four-star.
Just minutes from EIR, campers will be provided with unlimited "VIP" access to Orange Lake Resort, which will provide the opportunity to relax at the 350 meter 'lazy river' pool at River Island.

CAMP SCHEDULE (tentative)

Note: Below is the tentative camp training schedule and is subject to change. The camp is geared for adult (16+) beginner to experienced levels of ability and development, who aim to participate in triathlon distances ranging from sprint to Ironman. A more detailed camp schedule and timeline will be emailed prior to the camp. After an athlete pays the camp deposit, a detailed questionnaire will be emailed (about one month prior to the start of the camp) in an effort to provide the camp coaches with important background info for each athlete. This will help the coaches develop a personalized training program for each camper. For most workouts, athletes will be divided into three different groups based on level of ability and development. Therefore, many workouts will be focused for athletes who are "beginners" or "intermediates" or "elites".

Approximate durations for each workout are shown after the workout description below (in parentheses). The shorter duration aerobic workouts will be more suitable for beginners and/or campers gearing up for short-course triathlons. The longer duration aerobic workouts will be more suitable for those who have a sufficient fitness base entering the camp, and/or who are beyond beginner ability, and/or gearing up for a long-course triathlon. Coaches will ensure that all athletes feel comfortable and fit well in a group that will reflect their current level of fitness and ability. Fatigue levels and other factors might come into play that will have campers train with the "longer" group one day, and with the "shorter" group at another session.

This is not a "hammer" or "epic" big mileage camp. The focus is on technical instruction. Having said that, there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy lots of aerobic and high-intensity training throughout the week.

A professionally run camp, ran on time and as scheduled.  Something for everyone whether new to triathlon or an Ironman veteran.
Dennis Masse, Belle River, ON
Once again, a truly remarkable camp experience. I was impressed with the quality of the Coaching staff, and their ability to relate to my training needs. Their knowledge of the sport is very comprehensive, up to date, and techniques are explained in such as way that is easy to understand. The schedule was very well organized, and all camp activities were very educational and enjoyable.
Keith Henry, Amherstburg, ON
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a great camp. I appreciated the following:
1.  The organization, the choice and the flow of the activities (especially being on time for scheduled activities and keeping us on time)
2.  The mix of abilities and how well you were able to work with them
3.  The fun aspect mixed in with the training - pot luck, dinners out at great restaurants, buffet breakfasts
4.  How well you all dealt with the various personalities
5.  The expertise and enthusiasm of all of the coaches in their various disciplines - I learned a lot
6.  The variety of locations for training
7.  The great bike rides ( I enjoyed cycling every day)
8.  The Lazy River pool was fun to swim in (hot tub was a bonus!)
9.  The accommodations - nice big house and the gated community we were in - great location
10.  The outdoor pool we were videotaped in and the opportunity to do a little bit of open water swimming
