Carmichael Opening Up Cali Training Center

Published June 7, 2011

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (BRAIN)—Carmichael Training Systems will be opening the new Santa Ynez regional training center on the central coast of California on June 27.

CTS will be hosting a number of cycling and triathlon training camps out of the new Santa Ynez center in 2011. The new facility will also be equipped to conduct physiological testing and 3D dynamic bike fits, while CTS professional coaches will be heavily involved in the local cycling and triathlon scene.

“The central coast of California is not only a beautiful destination for any event but it’s also a fantastic place to conduct cycling and triathlon training camps throughout the year,” said Chris Carmichael, CEO of Carmichael Training Systems. “The local terrain allows many different types of training opportunities. You can climb steep canyon roads for days to sharpen your top-end fitness or stay along the scenic coast for miles of foundation work. The training opportunities are virtually endless which is why so many of the top pros live and train in this area.”

The 2011 camp schedule for the Santa Ynez facility starts with a Cycling Climbing Camp, July 6-9 and proceeds with a special Ironman Kona Prep Camp for triathletes who earned lottery entries into Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii. This triathlon camp, from August 4-7, will take advantage of the Santa Ynez region’s valley roads, convenient ocean access, and the summer heat. Heading into the fall, the Santa Ynez center will travel north to host a reconnaissance camp on the course of the King Ridge Gran Fondo and hold a Harvest Cycling Camp in September to coincide with harvest time at local wineries. In October they will host a Cyclocross Training Camp. Exact dates for these camps will be available soon.

Santa Ynez is Carmichael’s fourth regional location. The company also has training facilities in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Tucson, Arizona; and Asheville, North Carolina.
