QT2 Systems - Elite Age Group Vermont Training Camp (INCLUDES HOUSING)

September 17-20, 2020

This will be our fifth year running this camp for elite age groupers in world famous Stowe, Vermont! This camp has been a huge success since 2016! Our 4-day camp will run from September 17-20th (check-in on 9/16) and is designed for athletes racing the Ironman World Championship, or other late season events such as Louisville, Florida, Arizona, or Cozumel. As an elite age group camp, the expectations will be high, and the training incredibly difficult. The same model as QT2's PRO Camps will be used, where athletes won’t know the workouts that are coming, only to meet at the Waterbury Reservoir by 7:30 each morning. We will be using the heat acclimation protocol, so be sure to bring extra layers. September, in Vermont, is typically beautiful, with weather in the 70s and 80s. Come prepared to put in a great deal of hard work in an ideal training location. Accommodations and food for the camp will be included in the price, and covered by the Round Hearth.

Comments From Past Camps

"This camp was absolutely amazing. I felt well supported the entire time and other campers agreed. I know how difficult this is to manage logistically even if/when the intention is there but these coaches made it happen for each athlete. I was also impressed by the passion for the act of coaching in and of itself at camp as well as the depth of knowledge, excitement to share it and the open mindedness of the coaches. Both coaches have that passion for coaching and it was very apparent that they are looking out for the best interests of each athlete. This was so very refreshing to see. The culture of a triathlon camp/group of athletes will always trickle down from the leadership and this particular camp had an incredible, fun, supportive group atmosphere as a result."             

"This was my first QT2 camp experience and I went into it feeling anxious and intimidated. You took me outside my comfort zone and reminded me that we're always stronger than we think. I came home feeling confident, inspired, and rewarded. Thank you Vinny and Spinney!"

"This camp was the best I have ever attended. The degree of planning was outstanding. Every workout had a purpose and was appropriate. The Round Hearth is a great place. I liked the community aspect to meals and meetings."

"Absolutely incredible 4 days with awesome people and 2 of the most knowledgeable coaches I have ever worked with."

"The Camp exceeded all of my expectations and pushed me. The coaches were excellent and I could not recommend it more strongly."

"Amazing few days of training in an incredible environment.Let's do it again next year!"

"The camp was awesome, the training was great as always, the added local knowledge and ability to real enjoy the area too made it even better."
