After years of participating in triathlon training camps, Gerhard set out to establish his own unique camp that allows the athlete to focus solely on training, eating, learning, and having fun!

Our founder, Gerhard de Bruin, grew up in the Free State region and knows the territory's best routes to train.

Science plays a vital role in triathlon coaching, so we regularly engross ourselves in the newest research available in an effort to supply the most powerful tools to our competitive world of triathlon and to our camp attendees. Coach de Bruin acknowledges the importance of giving answers to questions that happen in the world of training, competing, nutrition, and recovery.
