You will enjoy a uniquely personalised experience: Dave will be leading every group and small group session – offering instruction, evaluating your abilities, identifying issues that might be holding you back and diagnosing solutions that will lead to improvement. Before arriving at camp, Dave will call you for a personal consultation to help determine your interests, abilities, strengths and weaknesses.

The clinics will help you train more efficiently, with each session highly targeted, intelligently designed and with a clear purpose. We will also analyse how your nutrition, strength, and biomechanics can be fine-tuned to further enhance your performance.

Your whole experience will take place in and around the stunning Chateau de la Motte Henry estate, conveniently located in the Pays de la Loire, France, and readily accessible from all over Western Europe. Throughout your stay you’ll enjoy fresh healthy meals, be given ample opportunity to relax in the 27 acres of woodland grounds and enjoy the stunning Chateau, its period rooms and extensive health and wellness facilities.
