Distance Plans

We believe that Long distance paddling success is built on a foundation of endurance, technique, and mental toughness. Our comprehensive training plans are designed to help paddlers of all skill levels achieve their goals, whether it's completing their first long-distance race or setting a new personal best.

Led by renowned paddling coach Tupuria King, our plans focus on building a solid foundation of fitness and technique through regular cardio workouts, strength training, and technique drills. We also incorporate specific paddling training, including sprint distance paddling sessions and interval training, to prepare paddlers for race-day conditions.
