Looking to set some big goals for the year and then blast through them? The Sportive Breaks Mallorca Coaching Camp is more than just some spring miles in a nice place. We start by setting you up with our expert coach. You will have an hour's phone consultation and then a custom training plan set up with regular check ins. The week in Mallorca is a big part of your training but we will be with you all the way through to your main event.
During this week Jon will run through all the key elements to improving your fitness, rider skills and intelligence to get you to achieve everything you can in 2018. This will include pedal stroke technique, controlling heart rate on climbs, stretching and core work, nutrition advice and more. Joining us at the start will be the sport science experts from Precision Hydration. They will provide an advanced sweat test (worth £95) and then create a personalised hydration plan based on how much sodium you lose on a ride and advice on what to drink & when for your main event of the year.

If you just want to ride in Mallorca, check out our other packages which will be better suited. The camp is for people looking to improve their cycling, set new pb's and push themselves in 2018. We will ride as two groups on the road with a faster group that will average 30km/h and an intermediate group averaging 25km/h.
You will get a custom coaching plan from the moment you sign up to your main event of the year so to get the most out of this you should be able to commit to a minimum of 5 hours per week (mix of turbo sessions, rides and gym work).

I have been working as an endurance coach now for over 12 years, having worked through UK athletic Qualifications, Cycling and British Triathlon, I have a Degree in Sport Science and am working on MSc in Athlete Develeopment and Peak performance. I set up E3coach.com to give the most professional and quality driven service, understanding each athlete is an individual and no matter what your level, be it to compete or complete you deserve the same focus.
As an endurance athlete I have raced multiple Ironman, 70.3, MTB XC, Craft Transalp, Gore-tex Transalpine, Lanzarote stage MTB, Marmotte, X-Man Triathlon, Ultra marathons. As well as the racing I have pushed myself in some extreme enviroments, Mont Blanc, Everest base camp, surfing in Europe and kayaking in some great white water. It is important to me to keep pushing my own limits as this keeps me intouch with the emotions of an athlete which is key to my coaching.
We offer a personalised hydration plan and a mix of products that meet your individual needs with our Advanced Sweat Test:
No blood test. No need to bust a gut on a treadmill. No need to wait whilst your sample goes off to a lab for top secret analysis.
Our Sweat Test takes about 15 minutes and all you have to do is sit comfortably whilst we talk to you about how you train and compete. The test is simple, painless, and extremely accurate.
This gives us an accurate reading of the amount of sodium (the key electrolyte lost in sweat) you lose every time you exercise. This is actually genetically determined and changes little throughout your lifetime, so one test is enough.
We combine the reading with the context you give us during the test to create a hydration strategy just for you. We'll advise you on when, what and how much to drink before, during and after training and competitions so that you're well equipped to achieve your goals.
We have a range of 2018 Giant TCR Advanced & Defy Advanced with Ultegra and Dura Ace. Prices range from £129 per week to £189 per week and will be delivered and collected from our hotel.
These bikes are set up for the local terrain and takes away all the hassle of bringing your own bike.
Your bike will be ready to be collected when you arrive and there will be a mechanic on site to help set the bike up to your measurements. Jon will be helping you all week get the perfect bike fit.
