Joe Giggins

The Cyclist

Being an athlete is not all about how big your engine is, or how much you can lift, or how far you can go. It's a way life - knowing how to structure your diary, organise your training time effectiveley, how to eat right and how to take care of your body should be top of your list. Gaining some extra knowledge is something that will improve your training, boost you towards your goals, and improve your quality of life. My goal is to give you the knowledge to help you achieve just that.

 

Background

I have been involved in competitive sport since the age of 10, it all starting the local swimming pool which led me on to competing to a national level at the age of 14

Then came the new found love for Triathlon where I was incredibly lucky to have some amazing coaches which pushed me on and inspired me to compete nationally against World Champions in 2008

I then transferred to competitive road cycling in 2011 winning my first ever circuit race and working very hard to become the Regional Road Race League Champion in 2013.

In my last competitive road season I was fortunate enough to take part in the ITV4 Pearl Izumi Tour Series and the British Elite Road Series events. The unfortunate part was a crash which took me out of competitive cycling.


Since 2014 I have focused nearly all of my competitive energy into coaching. I have been able to pass on my experiences and knowledge to all levels of rider, from novices learning to ride a bike to National and International athletes.
