    Had another thoroughly good week of training with a great group of like minded people. You soon trust the coaches experience and knowledge to do more than you think capable of and finish the week stronger both physically and mentally.

    5 out of 5 Had an absolute blast

    (verified owner)

    This was my first but definitely not my last Embrace Sports training week. Had an absolute blast and learnt so much from the guys. Came out of the week feeling fitter, stronger and a lot more confident about my first upcoming Ironman race. The coaches were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. Always helping out and making sure you pushed yourself to your limits. No question went unanswered and i got a huge amount of advice that’s really helped me with my personal training as well. Felt i got a lot of one-on-one with the coaches when i needed it.

    The food was amazing, the rooms spacious and clean, and had a great area next to a pool to help recover from the training in the sun.
    Would recommend this to anyone doing triathlons and wanting to get better and faster.

    I shall be back!

    5 out of 5 Just an awesome week!!!!

    Great environment, coaches, training plan and food!!
    This camp made more than 24 hours flight worth it!!! Awesome experience, with great tips and coaching; when I saw the overall program, I was not very sure I was going to be able to complete it, as impressed and happy I could be…. I ended up packing all my stuff on Saturday not only with many kilometer s completed but with the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that I completed every single training. Very happy I was part of this camp, and looking forward to training harder in order to complete my IM distance later in the year!! Kuddos Embrace team!!

    5 out of 5 What a great week!

    This was my first embrace training camp but it definitely won’t be my last! From the coaches to the food to the accommodation to the scenery – everything was amazing. Plus the

    The guys really know their stuff – and being back for a few days now and completing my first few training sessions back in the UK, I am already feeling fitter and stronger – all thanks to the Embrace guys!

    Additionally, the team (and the other guests on the week) were all keen to share their experiences of long distance races, and gave plenty of tips for the big day.

    I feel way more confident about my first iron distance race in a couple of months. Would definitely recommend to anybody – they definitely cater to all abilities.

    Will be back!

    As a repeat offender (this was my third Embrace Iron Distance Holiday) nothing disappointed… Great coaches, Great food and a fanatastic area to train in. A few new venues and sessions kept things fresh and there’s always something new to learn. Definitely the best
    way
    to prepare for the start
    of the season!

    5 out of 5 2nd year going! Again please!

    (verified owner)

    Can’t help but simply reiterate everything I said last year. 2nd time around is even better because coaches remember you and there’s no anxiety. The program, places and faces are familiar so you get in ready to rip into a great volume week of training. Plus, you have benchmarks to use. Simply said, these guys rock!

    From last year:

    “above and beyond one of the best holiday and training experiences! The fact that it could be both is incredible. The coaches are super knowledgeable and they have structured the camp perfectly to meet all of your desires. It’s well conceived so that you can manage what seems like an overwhelming amount of training first, but since it is so well organized and designed, you are pushing your limits beyond what you believed you are capable of.

    It helps that once you arrive, you are completely in the hands of professionals. You don’t have to fret about any decisions, which makes the holiday part of it all the better. The accommodations and food are top notch. Have more confidence and more knowledge know in a few days here than what would otherwise takes years to accumulate.

    Can’t wait for the next one!”

    5 out of 5 Best Embrace Holiday so far!

    (verified owner)

    This was my third Embrace Holiday, and definitely not my last! I have loved each Embrace camp I’ve been on, but this is my favourite so far. It was my first iron distance camp, and I’m so glad I took the plunge to try this longer distance training. I felt right at home in the crowd of athletes and coaches, and thoroughly enjoyed all of the sessions. The food was even better than I remember it from previous holidays, and the weather was perfect for triathlon training. The coaches also went above and beyond to help me when I got some mechanical difficulties with my bike! Thanks again, guys! I’ll be back!

    5 out of 5 Ironman week

    (verified owner)

    This was my second Embrace Ironman camp. I was anxious it wasn’t going to be as amazing the second time round? I shouldn’t have been worried, as it was even better if that is possible. Nothing was repeated, there were new routes, venues and sessions to keep me guessing. The camp is super organised and the training is structured with lots of thinking beforehand and the food is awesome.
    I look forward to my next trip

    Wow. What an incredible week! Thanks to 4 extremely knowledgeable coaches and their passion to deliver high qulaity sessions (and copious amounts of tasty nutritious food to fuel us). I will be back again. There is no reason why anyone wouldn’t want to do this again and again and again…

    Another fantastic week with Embrace. Pushed hard all week and left feeling shattered but chuffed just how much you can achieve with the right motivation and coaching.
    Made loads of new friends and reacquainted friendships from last year. These camps are starting to feel like a home from home. Fantastic food and plenty of it.
    Good to have a few new locations and activities such as the sea trek whilst retaining old favorites such as the woodland trails.
    Taking a different route up the Monchique mountains was great as you get to see a little bit more of this wonderful place.
    Watch out guys…..I’ll be back!!

    5 out of 5 Unforgettable!

    This was my first Embrace camp. I found it challenging but looked forward to every day. I was pushed beyond what I had thought were my limits. This camp had beautiful scenery, amazing food, and great coaching staff. The accommodations were excellent. I’d highly recommend this camp to anyone regardless of ability.

    Great training holiday with like-minded people, great location and a good programme. Early morning sea swims were (ahem) refreshing, and training across the three disciplines was pitched just right, meals out (and meals in!) and the vineyard visit were a nice change. Great advice from the coaches – from the sea swim ‘ attack the waves’ to the run failings ‘run more often’ which worked a treat, to the mental challenge/ Ironman spirit ‘the body can do it, the head just needs to tell it’. A great week with good steps in the Ironman journey and good friends made.

    5 out of 5 A week of AWESOMENESS

    This was my first Embrace training holiday and I now totally get why everyone raves about them! Looking at the training schedule at the start of the week I wondered how it would all be possible, but I am living proof that it is, and that you come to the end of it feeling like superwoman (man).
    I loved training with the coaches and such a wonderful group of like-minded long distance triathlon folk. The coaches are utterly inspiring, and yet totally down to earth at the same time, always up for a laugh and a drink, and boy do they look after you well! Not only in the training sessions, but the food is awesome, and plenty of it!
    Can’t wait for my next Embrace holiday!

    5 out of 5 Iron Week 2-9th April 2016

    What an exceptional week. It was advertised as a warm weather long course triathlon training week, but it was more, so much more! Part scout camp, part training. So much better than any of the many previous warm weather tri camps I’ve been on. Like the photo there wasn’t much left of me at the end in spite of the plentiful and varied food prepared & cooked by everyone (scout camp) and then split up later to ride or run with your relevant coach. It shows how good it was when one of our coaches knocks out a 2hr35min London marathon after we get home to England. Really recommend this as part light relief part great training- exactly as it should be! Thanks Team Embrace
