Ayia Napa

March is a great season to get out and enjoy triathlon race. It is an excellent period to experience countryside run and natural trails.

Our methods

Improve your swimming via the total immersion technique. You don’t have to be strong to swim for long, but effective. We adapted our methods under triathlon by adding working off your actions during the start, learning to orientate in open waters and swimming in the wetsuit.


A serious approach to the road cycling trainings which will improve your results and ensure you complete the distance safe and sound.


The trainings are based on the natural run technique which focuses on the body position and foot placement. Specifically for the triathlon, we have the bicycle+running trainings to prepare the sportsmen for the hardest transition during any triathlon race.

Transition zones

We will teach you how to get through the transition zones as quickly as possible, by teaching how to go get out of the wetsuit in a moment and prepare your place in it before the race in order not to lose any time.

Triathlon trips

The smallest details are crucial in triathlon. We teach what critical to take for the race and what can be left at home. Show you lifehacks on how to pack your triathlon bag, teach to manage your cycle during traveling.

Finishing a full Iron is not difficult, it all depends on the time you spend on the course. Eat on time and have no choice not to finish. I do not like my time, but I understand that in my conditions, it is better than I can. For the first time at all, probably, the goal is to finish, to reach, to see what is beyond, to realize, still terrifying, the number of kilometers. I do not know how I still had to train to improve the time. Oh yeah, remove prolactin. Right, that’s who to blame.
During one of the 8 laps of the hell on the run, it occurred to me that the finish was like childbirth that can not be born, it is impossible not to finish. There is no such choice. But if there is, then failure. Not strong enough. Moral-volitional ends somewhere in the middle of the road.
I still understood, long ago, if you give, you get it. There is no strength in the legs, muscles. But to say that I can always support anyone I could, whispered something, mumbled back. The feeling of unity felt in the end. Where are you all after 13 hours? Also could not walk and fell the next day? What do they give at the finish? By the way, falling, got a medal just between the eyebrows. I think the realization of all possible, omnipotence, and I’m not talking about sports.
Thanks to the heart, the muscles that allowed to reach the end. And be sure to go through the physical and save ourselves.

My first ever triathlon

  1. I was extremely nervous. I did not believe my coach and more experienced friends that it is nothing to be nervous about. I freaked out and had a panic attack in the water, I forgot a water bottle and did not turn on my Garmin, I attacked people around me with stupid questions and went the wrong side with the bike in the transit zone. I calmed down only when I crossed the finish line and got a call from the coach saying he is happy with my results. So now I know - it is nothing to be worried about, it is not that scary as it seems and drinking from a regular bottle with a cap while cycling is possible but you will lose speed (do not try to repeat it though, better check your list before leaving your hotel).

  2. I received great tips: a) take hotel slippers and leave it at the start point so you are not worried about leaving your flip flops or walking barefoot b) cover your trainers in transit zone with a plastic bag in case if it will start raining (can you imagine - it did!) c) never choose white color suit - you will get wet and it will get transparent (you can choose it you are like people watching you)

  3. Definitely signing up for sprint before getting into longer distances competitions is a great idea - it is your chance to check how does transit zone looks like, how to park your bike, how to arrange your belongings, how long will take to do change and where are your areas for improvement.

Good luck to everyone!

In case you have some questions left
  • Do I need a road bicycle?

    Our partners Reinststion lend the professional bicycles for the trainings and races for short or long terms, as well as helmets and special shoes. However we do recommend to buy your own equipment, it's usually more comfortable

  • How many hours do trainings take every week?

    It's 5-6 days a week for 1.5 hours every day is what you should consider to take absolute maximum from the programme. If you can't afford to give that much time - this plan is for you. If the schedule does not allow you to train five days a week and at the same time sleep at least six hours a day, then your minimum for the successful finish of the race is three group training per week.

  • What skills do I need before joining?

    Being able to do front crawl, skill to ride a bicycle and being able to run 10km.

  • Do I have to separately pay for the swimming pool?

    No, it's included in the programme price.

  • What's the training schedule?

    At the start of every week, you will receive the training plan for this week.

  • How can we train in the group with different skill levels?

    At the start of the first week, you will be tested on how well you do in swimming, cycling and running and then split into mini-groups. Trainings will be based on everyone's individual comfort zones and heartbeat rates.

  • How many people are there in a group?

    Up to 7-8 people, keeping the groups small, yet keeping the "team spirit" within the group

  • Any discounts on the sport inventory for the sporsmen?
