Private coaching

In and around Marbella

One-on-one training

Our private coaching service in and around Marbella has grown out of the interest of friends, individuals and groups that wanted to experience an active or training holiday and enjoy the Andalusian all-year-round great climate and stunning nature. Started as Sun Tri Marbella in 2012, we now offer personal training sessions in the sports we know best. Besides athletics, these sports are cycling, (trail) runningpool and open water swimming and of course triathlon.

We put a lot of pride into making sure that your private coaching sessions with Sun Tri Sports will be safe, fun and make you a better athlete. Read our Training Tips about our thoughts on training and racing. We are not just tour-guides or “weekend-certified PT’s”; all our coaches have extensive sports backgrounds and sports educations as well as up-to-date first aid certifications. And with our local knowledge, we will be able to show you and train on the most amazing trails, roads or other training locations.

Although most of our coaches are based in and around Marbella, we also offer private coaching in Málaga, Estepona, San Pedro, Benahavís, Benalmadena, Mijas, Torremolinos and Fuengirola. We are proudly coaching and training men and women, of all ages, from beginners to world championship qualifiers.
