    5 out of 5 Amazing Week

    (verified owner)

    A friend of mine recommended Embrace last year and after completing my first sprint triathlon I decided to sign up. What a great way to start 2017 – a week of triathlon coaching in sunny Portugal! It was a fantastic week, being so new to the sport it was brilliant to learn so much from the coaches and pick up lots of tips and tricks to take me into my first triathlon race season. It was great being surrounded by so many like minded individuals and really seeing what we could achieve. I loved being out of my comfort zone and seeing how my body coped with the volume of training. This week really made me see just how much we are truly capable of which as it turns out – is far greater than I expected. I will definitely be booking my next Triathlon camp again!

    The photo is of my husband & I relaxing on the beach after the duathlon challenge known as “hell on the hills”! It era amazing – great fun and challanging. The triathlon training week was well organised and thoroughly enjoyable.

    5 out of 5 Excellent training holiday

    I booked this trip as I thought I might give triathlon a go, I’ve lacked direction in my training for a few years now and wanted a new challenge. I had never done any open water swimming and only ever cycled as a commuter through London traffic. The coaches are so passionate about their sport I have well and truly got the bug, this holiday has given me a renewed passion for training and some real focus. The first day in the water I saw shark fin rock and thought ‘that looks miles away’ at the end of the week we did a session and I swum round it…twice in one set! The food was awesome and the relaxed attitude from all the staff made for an excellent training holiday, I’ll definitely be back!

    5 out of 5 February Triathlon Holiday

    Another terrific triathlon holiday in the Algarve, learning new ways to improve performance, spending time in the ocean, running and cycling up formidable hills and through gorgeous scenery. Excellent bunch of people from an amazing variety of backgrounds, all connected by a love of sport and hugely supportive of one another. Would certainly recommend to triathletes of all standards.

    5 out of 5 Fantastic experience - again

    (verified owner)

    I first joined Embrace for the February Triathlon Holiday in 2016, and after a fantastic week, I was completely sure I would come back. And back I came, one year later. It was fun to do some of the same sessions as we did a year earlier, and see how my fitness had improved. The coaches were great, and as always they did a great job giving us sessions that worked for a lot of different levels of fitness and experience. Lagos really is a perfect location for triathlon training; there are so many beautiful places to swim/bike/run, and it feels great to train outdoors while winter is in full swing back home. The food was maybe even better than the previous year, and the mixed group of runners and triathletes was fun to hang out with.

    5 out of 5 Even better than I expected

    After being recommended by a friend I decided to book my first Embrace sports running holiday and it didn’t disappointed 1 bit. The apartments were exceptional the food cooked by the guys wasn’t only healthy but super tasty. The running side was for all abilities and produced some stunning views. I enjoyed so much that I actually booked my next trip whilst still in Portugal. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering this trip.

    5 out of 5 Great location, great food, great coaches

    (verified owner)

    This was my 3rd trip with Embrace and didn’t fail to live up to expectations. As more of a cyclist than anything else, my previous trips were in the French Pyrenees and this was my first trip Lagos. With less of a cycling focus, I was forced out of my comfort zone and to literally dive in at the deep end. Organisation was slick and forced me to work on my weaknesses. The formula is simple; work hard but enjoy yourself and it definitely works for me. Behind it all are great coaches who clearly enjoy what they do and that’s the real difference.

    Boundaries were pushed, PBs set, mountains conquered, bake-offs judged, kegs emptied, vast amounts of food eaten and promises to come back were made to be kept. Thanks again guys

    5 out of 5 What an amazing week

    I’m not a youngster and was quite worried about joining others on this type of holiday, but I needn’t have worried. I’ve been through quite a traumatic year and needed to restart my training and this week certainly did that. It was hard, it was fun, it was really informative both from the coaches and other athletes. I really ‘enjoyed’ myself, I was pushed to the extreme and it’s amazing what you can do when you are pushed, but it was great, and I can certainly see myself booking into another week again.

    5 out of 5 Simply fabulous

    I’ve been on running holidays and now I’ve changed to triathlon holidays and I can say both are brilliant. If you’re about to do your first tri, this is the best holiday there is to help give you knowledge and confidence to do it. The whole experience is wonderful – the coaches are very experienced and know how to push you but know your limits so you can completely trust them when they say ‘run here, cycle there’. You finish the holiday having pushed your boundaries in a totally supported environment. On top of that, the food is amazing and the people you meet are like-minded and I’ve made many good friends here. I can’t recommend Embrace enough. Go for it. 🙂

    5 out of 5 Exceptional

    This was my third outing with the Embrace crew and yet again left me absolutely in awe. The coaches (Graeme, Neil, Lucy and Eric) are top class, their encouragement, support and cooking is second to none.
    We were all very inexperienced on the week, and they catered for every single persons abilities- from those who couldn’t put their heads under in the sea, to those who needed to improve their stroke to those who needed some healthy competition.
    Again the food was incredible, the company was excellent and the whole trip was exceptional!

    5 out of 5 Amazing!

    (verified owner)

    I booked this holiday because I had signed up for a couple of sprint triathlons, and I wanted to learn about the sport and see if it really was something I liked. And of course I wanted to have a week of good training.

    I enjoyed almost every minute of the holiday. I put my body through a lot more then I ever have before in such a short period of time, and it was great to experience that I actually could do that. The coaches were very attentive, and somehow managed to give me individual tips and feedback whenever I needed it, even when the whole group trained together. The food was fantastic, and it really is true that they cater to all dietary requirements, however difficult they may be.
