Each day will start with morning outdoor mobility and movement exercises followed by two gym training sessions in the morning and afternoon.

Each evening Coaching and scientific lectures for the coaches will take place. An Anti-Doping education program will take place for athletes and coaches.

Lead coaches and presenters will be from the EWF, IWF, Türkiye Federation, and Türkiye NADO.
