Group Evolution partners with Joel Filliol

ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE – Joel Filliol and Group Evolution are delighted to launch their partnership, delivering a series of unique training experiences to help triathletes progress to the next level. Held at the stunning Chateau de la Motte Henry in the Pays de la Loire, France, these experiences have been designed not only to provide a training stimulus to help improve performance but also to educate attendees on how to train, recover and evolve their performance, drawing heavily upon Joel’s experience in coaching the world’s best elite triathletes.

Six camps will be held in 2024, with two hosted by Joel and four more hosted by coaches who share Joel’s coaching philosophy, all supported by the Group Evolution team of sports scientists, therapists and coaches. Group training, focussed small group sessions and individual assessments are all included, as is all food & drink and accommodation.

Joel is internationally recognised as one of triathlon’s most successful performance coaches, having guided athletes to world class success across all disciplines and served in leading positions with the Canadian, British, Italian, and Australian triathlon federations. Athletes in his independent elite triathlon squad have won over 30 world series events, with more than 100 podium performances and 6 world championship titles.

Commenting on the 2024 program of Next Level camps, Joel said:

“I am hugely excited by the opportunity to share the lessons I have learnt from over 20 years of supporting elite triathletes, with enthusiastic age groupers, of all abilities. We have developed a detailed program for these camps, with each session helping to educate attendees in how to train with purpose and take their performance to the next level. With a combination of 1-1 analysis, focussed small group sessions, group training and continuous feedback, the camps will replicate a lot of what we do with our elites, tailoring this to each individual attendee. I look forward to welcoming everyone to the Chateau – the facilities are great, the setting inspirational, and I am excited to help age groupers get the most out of themselves, both on camp and beyond.”

Commenting on the partnership with Joel Filliol, Barry Williams, co-founder of Group Evolution Retreats, said:

“The partnership with Joel will be revolutionary for age group athletes. Not only will attendees benefit from a program which will provide the correct training stimulus, they will also learn valuable lessons from each session that they will be able to apply to their training in the future, enabling them to take their performance to the next level. Whether attending camps hosted by Joel himself, or those hosted by our handpicked team of highly experienced coaches, the program will be identical and the content unlike any other triathlon training experience. These camps deliver amazing value for money, at a stunning location.”
