Quote from previous Team MPI camper working with Coach Mark Turner:

"Thanks to MPI and Mark Turner for putting on the fantastic camp! As a first time Ironman 70.3 participant, the two day workshop really helped to calm my nerves and prepare me mentally for the event. The individualized coaching and low athlete to coach ratio allowed for the personal coaching I needed. Nutrition and hydration support during the run and bike workshops were great as well. I feel this workshop was key to me completing the event and even beating my personal time goal." - Eric
