The 2019 Hypertrophy Camp will run from December 13th until December 20th.

This will be seven days of training….and food, hiking, meditation, and nature. We will talk about training and hypertrophy, but not at the expense of actual training.

This is not touch butt in the park, this is a chance to throwdown in the Jungle.

When:

  • December 13th through December 20th

Where:

Flō Retreat Center which sits about three kilometers up the mountains above Uvita, Costa Rica

Flō houses a fully equipped gym with squat racks that stare out into the jungle, a full commercial kitchen, a classroom, as well as accommodations for 20 attendees with expansive views of the Rio Uvita Valley and the Whale’s Tail. Flō sits on 20 acres of pristine rain forest bordered by rivers and six waterfalls on three sides with trails running down to a natural Olympic size pool and a 50 foot waterfall below.
