All Year Round Triathlon Training Camps (in the South of France), Personal Coaching and Customized Training Plans.

Custom Training Plans:

A fully interactive, bespoke, web based plan, designed for you by professional Triathlon Coach Richard Laidlow. 4 weeks is the minimum duration, but there is no upper limit, so if you wish to train for an Olympic distance and have identified around 10 hours a week for 30 weeks this would be possible. Or if you have already raced several 1/2 ironmans and have 12 weeks to prepare for an Ironman the plan would be written for this. You do not need to fit the plan, the Triathlon Training Plan is expertly designed to fit you!

Triathlon Training Camps:

All year round we offer you fully coached and supported, tailor made triathlon training camps, at an affordable price. We specialize in completely hassle-free, training holidays, on dates that suit you, in one of the most sunny, dry and breathtaking regions of Southern France. Learn how to train smarter and maximize your potential by concentrating on your training whilst letting us take care of the rest.

Personal Triathlon Coaching:

We aim to provide you with all the help you need to become a stronger, faster, smarter and healthier athlete. Our personalized triathlon coaching service is fully supported by phone, text or email 24/7 and gives you experienced, individual and customized attention. Your web based training plans/diary allow you to upload files from over 80 training devices and includes weekly coaching, updates/feedback and an online forum.

Immersed in triathlon for over 25  years and Triathlon Coaching for over 18 of those, I am a qualified British Triathlon and British Cycling Coach, who also has vast knowledge and expertise gained as an elite athlete, competing for my country in both swimming and triathlon. Previously an RAF Physical Training Instructor I was part of the relay team who broke the world record for the Belgium to England Channel crossing (plus numerous other channel swims), and gained additional practical and theoretical knowledge as a lecturer in Sports Science and YMCA qualified personal trainer . Ten years ago my wife and I created the successful Triathlon Training Base Le Sancture des Sportifs, where we live and work today.

In 2012 we created our sister site "Custom Training Plans". To provide a quality bespoke Triathlon Training Plan service for triathletes around the world.

I still compete regularly in all disciplines and am the Head Tri Coach for Triathlon Catalan. So I am well positioned to help you achieve your goals no matter how tough you think they are!
