Simon’s Corner – This Training Camp Was a Waste of Time and Money!

by / Tuesday, 08 March 2016 / Published in Coaching, News, Simon's Corner
I’ve just got back from a training camp in Lanzarote and I know that many people have their own planned for the next few weeks. You may be among them.
Several years ago I was at a training camp in Lanzarote.
On the first afternoon, one of the lads decided to top up his tan before the real training started.
He spent several hours in the sun, without any sun block.
The sun burn and sunstroke sidelined him from training until the final day and, for him, the whole camp was a waste of time and money.
It sounds like a simple mistake to make and an easier one to avoid.
However, in over 20 years of coaching I have seen this and many others repeated time and again.
In todays video I’ll give you a few tips on how to get the most from your training camps and avoid the silly mistakes.
Last year I wrote short manual explaining exactly how to get the most from your training camps. If you would like to get a copy then just e-mail me at with “Please send me the training camp manual.” in the subject line.
