Training Camps

Weightlifting101 Training Camps

If you wish to attend a training camp you have two different options. The first option is to sign up for a camp in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The second option is to book a training camp for your own gym.

Below you will find detailed information for the two options. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate sending an email to info@weightlifting101.net.

Training Camps in Mallorca

The training camps are held at Connection23 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain and is made up of one group of up to ten athletes with arrival Wednesday and departure either Sunday late afternoon/evening or anytime Monday.

You are responsible for booking your plane ticket and to get from the airport to the apartment where you will be staying on the day of arrival and from either the gym or the apartment to the airport on the day of departure. I recommend taking a taxi, which takes fifteen minutes and costs around 20 euros.

I have two neighboring apartments in downtown Palma with one of them accommodating all the athletes and the other accommodating Johan and I.

Johan is responsible for cooking. He will prepare a big breakfast and dinner every day and provide us with snacks during the hours in the gym. From the moment you arrive to the time of your departure Johan is there to make sure that you are well-fed. If you have any allergies or dietary wishes based on ethical or religous grounds we can accommodate for that but please let us know well in advance.

Bed linen, towels and everything you need is provided for. It is also possible to have your clothes washed free of charge during the camp.

Schedule for Thursday, Friday and Sunday:

8:00-9:00. Breakfast.
9:00-10:00. Walk to the gym.
10:00-17:30. Training.
17:30-18:30. Walk home.
19:00-21:00. Dinner.
22:00. Bedtime.

Schedule for Saturday:

10:00-11:00. Breakfast.
11:00-12:00. Walk to the gym.
12:00-18:00. Training.
18:00-19:00. Walk home.
19:00-21:00. Dinner.
22:00. Bedtime.

The training sessions are all about technical excellence and discipline. The exact program is not revealed in advance as it differs in each camp. The price of participation is 875 euros paid via PayPal, which includes all coaching, accommodation and food throughout the camp. To participate you need good command of the English language; to be injury free and able to do all weightlifting exercises without accompanying pain; and to not be a beginner as the camp calls for hard work that you need to be conditioned for.

Most of the training camps in Mallorca are separated by gender so that it’s either men or women.

Please send an email to info@weightlifting101.net if you wish to attend a camp in the future or if you have any questions.

 

Hosting a Training Camp

Hosting a Weightlifting101 Training Camp at your own gym is the ideal solution if you prefer to train in your own environment instead of traveling to Mallorca and if you have a sizable group of competitive athletes and coaches that can make up the lion share of the required participants. If you are not able to find all the participants for a camp solely from your own gym consider reaching out to other gym owners and athletes in your area.

The camp consists of one group of up to twelwe people, which is run through three hard training sessions from Thursday to Sunday.  The training sessions are all about technical excellence and discipline. The exact program is not revealed in advance as the program of each camp differs from one another. The price of participation is 500 euros paid via PayPal and each participant is responsible for accommodation, transportation and food.

One free spot goes to the gym or to the organizer of the camp. The spot can be sold or given away but whoever takes the free spot must meet the requirements for participation listed below.

To participate you need good command of the English language; to be injury free and able to do all weightlifting exercises without accompanying pain; and to not be a beginner as the camp calls for hard work that you need to be conditioned for.

Here is an example of the schedule but it can be changed to accommodate opening hours and classes at your box.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday:

Session 1: 10-12:00.
Session 2: 13:00-14:30.
Session 3: 15:30-17:00.
