What People Are Saying About the Hell Week

Frequently Asked Questions

We start at 2:30 pm on the first day so depending on where you are flying from it can be easier to arrive the day before. Most people fly in the night before and stay at Thanyapura for an extra night. To book the extra night, just send us a message so we can organize it with Thanyapura. 

Yes! Most days there is time between sessions and meals to relax by the hotel pool, attend fitness classes or go for a run or ride. Many of the triathletes who attend fit in extra sessions around the camp schedule. In the middle of the week after a few hard days of training, we swim in the morning then you get the rest of the day off to relax or explore Phuket. We often hear campers talk about how much they enjoy the combination of relaxing time and challenging swim workouts.

We have a wide range of speeds and swimming abilities to attend the camp. Because we have 5x50m lanes for each session we’re able to cater for most levels of swimmers. For aerobic sessions the fastest lane is often leaving around the 1:30 or 1:35/100m pace and the slower lane leaving on 2:30/100m. If you’ve never attended a camp like this before don’t worry, neither have most people!

One of the best things about Hell Week is the food! All of your meals are prepared at Divine Restaurant at Thanyapura with there being a wide selection of food available. Imagine not having to cook, prepare or clean up any of your meals for the week…it really is train, eat, sleep without any of the worries of normal life. All of your meals are included in the price (except the final night dinner where go out for dinner).

Each session varies between 2-4km with there being 13 swims planned for the week. This varies between the pool and open water and each session has a different focus from speed, skills, technique, endurance, recovery, etc. Most swimmers end up doing 25-40km for the week depending on their fitness level.

Spots are transferable but not refundable, however we will do our best to help find someone to take your spot if you cannot make it.

 Cancel for a full refund (minus the non-refundable deposit) up to 121 days out from the camp

Bookings can be made directly through the payment link above. If booking a twin share room with another swimmer, BOTH swimmers must book a spot separately. If booking a twin share room with a non-swimmer, only one booking is required by the person who will be swimming at the camp.

Brenton and Mitch were great to work with at the clinic, Good to get video analysis to work on straight away, practice some new drills and go home knowing what you need to work on.
