Wondering what you should do and bring with you to prepare for your training camp or camp? Our tips on the comprehensive checklist for triathlon training camp should help you to prepare perfectly for the triathlon training camp.

The optimal conditions for a training camp?

Whether you do sport all the time or just have a general base level of physical fitness, there's no denying the importance of a training camp. Without proper preparation for the zero to 100 training camp, you may well get injured or sick due to the increased demands of the training camp.
You should explore your possibilities and your potential before the camp, in order to train at your performance level, which is optimal for your specific situation.
The last thing you want to happen is that your training camp workouts aren't challenging enough or that you get injured at camp. It's about finding the perfect measure of things in which you can move safely, within your limits.
If at any time you feel you are overtraining, you should take the time to discuss this with your coach. He will make sure in consultation with you that the training is perfectly tuned again.
The packing list, these items you should bring to the training camp?
Basically, it doesn't matter here if you are doing the training camp for an Ironman, an Olympic triathlon or to increase your fitness.

It doesn't matter whether your trip goes, to one of the popular islands like Mallorca, Tenerife, Grand Canaria or whether you train in the surrounding area. Your suitcase will always be quite full and the things you have to pack often only differ in quantity. So have fun packing.

With our list you should have a good basis not to forget any basic, with individual adjustments it represents an excellent basis to travel relaxed to training camps.
No matter if you go to the training camp with or without your own bike, the basic things to take with you are the same.
If you fly with your own bike, you can take a few more items of luggage with you thanks to the available bike case.
