The 189-room Almyra hotel on the Cypriot coast of Paphos is setting itself up as an elite training camp for fitness fanatics, tapping into the “limit pushing” trend for endurance challenges.
Hosted by pro-coach Simon Brierley, long-distance triathlete and sports journalist Sean McFarlane, and ex-champion triathlete and sports physiologist Kypros Nicolaou, triathalon and swimming clinics will be held from November to April.
Daily activities will include open water swims, road cycles, and coastal trail running, while video analysis and personal coaching will help participants improve their technique and identify weaknesses.
Careful attention will also be made to diet, with a Mediterranean menu designed to provide the correct balance of carbs, fats and protein for optimum nutrition.
Triathlon training packages start from €1,190, while swimming camps start from €350 per person. Golf, biking and sailing camps are also available. The Almyra is a member of the Design Hotels collection.
