Putting on a camp is a LOT of work, so we took 2011 off from camps and will re-tool things to take an already AWESOME camp and make it even better. We learned a lot from our initial camp (that for starters we hit it OUT OF THE PARK). There are always things to do differently & improve on details, so that is what Coach Sean (of Team Hendryx) and I are up to this season. We are even looking at hosting the 2012 camp in Clermont, Florida. Plans are to split the focus from Iron-distance camp based to add a HALF-Iron Distance camp at the same time. Two groups, two focuses. Of course the camp will be open to all people of all abilities but we think those that will benefit most are athletes newer to long distance racing (or brand new for that matter). Stay tuned later this season to this site for updates to the best dog-gone triathlon camp you can enter...we'll be working on the dates and details from here. Come and join the 2012 Boulder Altitude Camp coming to Clermont, FL or Boulder, CO!
Presentation to the Heiman Family
The 2010 Boulder Altitude Camp went off without a hitch with PERFECT weather all week long. Athletes were treated to the best Boulder offers in weather and training camps. Coach Sean & coach Kevin put on a class treatment involving every facet of preparation you could ask for in a camp...from LT testing at Boulder Center Sports Medicine lab, top notch sponsors, motivated athletes (who are all doing Ironman CDA in a few weeks), long rides, hilly rides, trail runs & outdoor swimming and video tape analysis, group lunches and ride support, guest speakers & massages. To top it all off we were able to raise money for a local family cause and we feel great about this camp and how it turned out. The athletes came away learning new things and left better and more knowledgeable athletes. Above is a picture of the presentation check to the family the camp benefited. Klaus (the little boy on the left) is in need of medical treatments with an ongoing illness. If you would like to find out more about how to donate to his cause, please visit this link: Caring Bridge to benefit Klaus Dragon Heiman.
Feel like you missed out on a great opportunity? Hold on...there's more! We are looking at a spring camp in Cleremont or perhaps a 2011 Edition of the Boulder Altitude Camp. If you're interested, keep us in mind & check this website in a few months. Take care!
