The Free Speed TRAINING CAMP
...go forward faster...
Whistler, BC - June 30th to July 2nd
Brite Coaching is taking the Training Camp experience to the next level. No matter what your distance, race goal or level of experience, join us for a long weekend of learning how you can become a smarter, speedier and better triathlete in the name of gaining Free Speed.
Besides training hours in the lake, on the bike, and on the road, we will provide tricks and considerations for reducing your drag co-efficient against water, wind and gravity; create more space in your body for movement optimization; and focus on mental fortitude. This camp will demystify how ‘hard training triathletes’ discover faster paces without the added expense of energy or to your bank account.
A few years ago at the Ironman World Championships, Andy Potts (one of the winningest triathletes of all time) used Gatorskin tires in hopes of preventing a puncture. That decision is not the only one he regrets, as you will read here.
Let us help you make smart decisions before race day.

Friday, June 30th - Free Speed Swim & Mobility Day
Spend the morning at the lake...
The Pandora's Box of open water swimming begins our camp. Athletes will spend the morning in the water developing skills for sighting, drafting, navigating, entering, exiting, and wetsuit stripping. Coaches will answer any burning questions about the nuances of racing in open water. We will wrap the morning with a Dryland Swim Cords Workshop to finish off the shoulders. Athletes will leave with an ‘at home’ routine for integration into their everyday training. Swim cords will be provided.
Spend the afternoon opening and lengthening...
After rest, fuelling and hydrating, athletes will attend a mobility & activation workshop with Trainer Becky Sidow. Becky specializes in educating the unidirectional athlete to move in all directions and move well. Athletes will not only learn the impact mobility and alignment can have on their swimming, biking and running but also receive a few key pre-training exercises to do before every session. Simple. Short. Effective. Athletes will love her energy, passion and knowledge. You will want to move for her! Becky trains out of Movement 108 in Vancouver.
Spend the evening together...
Riff on how to make your bike a machine of speed with some small tweaks to the set up, tire selection, chains, bearings, head position, clothing and managing your power output. These tips could make or break your race. #andypotts
Saturday, July 1st - The Free Speed Brick Day
Spend the day on your bike and running off the bike...
This will be the big ass training day. Athletes will ride between 80-180km depending on their seasonal goals. SAG will be provided no matter what your distance or speed. The course will follow the Ironman and Half Ironman Canada route departing from the village (T2). Athletes will transition to their run off the bike at T2. Support throughout the ride and in transitions will be provided, from fuel to gear drops to watching bikes. This is the day to get the miles in with little energy expended on logistics and organization - leave that to us. While some athletes may wish to ride together, this is not mandatory and everyone will be encouraged to ride their own pace and make the best of this opportunity.
Athletes will be invite to participate in a mental training session with Christine Suter. Christine is based in Whistler and has been coaching and racing in triathlons longer that most anyone else you know. She is currently studying in the field of mental training and keen to share her knowledge with all of you. Christine will teach you how your mind is your best tool for accessing free speed.
Spend the evening together...
Spend valuable time with your campmates talking all things triathlon over good food and learning a thing or two about hydration and fuelling. Location to be disclosed at the camp.
Sunday, July 2nd - The Free Speed Run Day
Spend the morning running...
Athletes will meet in T2 for a longer run session with support. Depending on your seasonal goals, runs will range from 15km to 30kms. Fuelling, hydrating, pacing and managing the monkey mind will be encouraged along the way. Post run athletes will enjoy a recovery brunch while the coaches cover Free Speed running topics. Did you know that sometimes walking is FASTER than shuffling? Do you understand how shoe selection & form affect your efficiency? We will shed light on how to conquer the infamous run off the bike.
Athletes will be invited to re-enter the real world on Sunday afternoon.
Please register for the Free Speed Camp HERE. Max Capacity is 20 athletes as we want to provide excellent value, training, insight, and service.
We will be doing a pre-camp questionnaire to help determine fitness, nutrition, performance and other racing and training insights so we can offer the best possible camp experience for you individually as well as the group.
