JOEL FILLIOL'S THE NEXT LEVEL

EXPERT TRIATHLON TRAINING FOR ALL

One of the world's leading elite triathlon coaches, Joel Filliol, has partnered with Group Evolution to deliver a program of high quality triathlon training camps for all. You can choose to attend one of the camps hosted by Joel  in person or one of the camps hosted by coaches personally selected by Joel, due to their common coaching philosophy.

The weekly program is designed not only to provide a training stimulus, but also to educate, inform and guide you on how best to realise your potential and take the next steps along your triathlon journey, whatever they may be. Focussed assessment will be conducted alongside purposeful training sessions with clear objectives and lessons to take into your training once back at home. Individual, small group and group training will be tailored to your needs and personal objectives.

The program will be delivered by leading professional coaches and sports scientists, with everything included -food, drink and accommodation. There will be plenty of time to relax in the company of like-minded individuals at our stunning 19th Century Chateau.
