Alistair and Jonny Brownlee are inviting members of the public to join them for a week-long winter training camp in Spain in February 2022.


The trip will give you the chance to train with the brothers as they prepare for the race season, following a standard week from their winter schedule, using the same facilities and taking on the same routes.

Throughout the week, you’ll get expert coaching, including from Brownlee Fitness head coach Mark Buckingham, to help you reach a new level and will also get to hear from the brothers themselves.

The opportunity comes days after the brothers launched their new Fitness Squad membership, which is part of their fitness company, Brownlee Fitness.

What’s included

Anyone signing up for the trip will be based at one of two hotels, Barceló La Nucía Palms or Barceló La Nucía Hills. Both are found in La Nucia, on the south-east coast of Spain, and are said to be close to the facilities.

Prices start at £1,449 and don’t include flights or transfers. However, they do include five full days of training (including swimming, cycling and running every day), access to the Brownlee’s winter training schedule, expert coaching, a Q&A evening with Jonny and Alistair, and five-star accommodation.

The swim sessions will focus on drills, skills and pacing in the indoor pool and open water skills, including deep water starts and swimming on feet, in the outdoor pool.

On the bike, you’ll embark on a variety of aerobic medium and longer distance rides, as well as a key interval session, while the run training will include track sessions, easy efforts and a range of running drills.

Pilates and stretching sessions are then said to be available most nights for those that want to join in.
