Seven steps to get you and your family riding together confidently, from Girona Cycling's Fiona Smart.
Taking time this winter to strengthen your weaknesses will pay dividends in the new year, says Fiona Smart as she focusses on strength training and improved technique for triathletes.
Fiona Smart explains why it's so important to work on your swimming technique and suggests a range of drills to help with that process.
Putting in the time and effort to get your children active is more important than ever and Fiona Smart draws on her own experiences and expertise as a life coach to provide these useful pointers.
If you need inspiration - and expert advice - to aid your return to cycling, running or swimming after a long absence then this is the article for you as coach Fiona Smart helps you kick-start a new regime.
Fiona completed her BSc Animal Physiology followed by a PhD at the University of Cambridge where she took up triathlon 20 years ago before moving to California and spending seven years as a neuroscientist at TSRI in La Jolla. She then changed tack with her husband Gareth Speechley to both start a family and also set up a hotel and cycling and triathlon training centre in Girona, Spain which they now run all year round. They've both retrained as coaches - Gareth is a cycling and triathlon coach, with Fiona a life coach also taking sports injury and massage courses. "We get so much out of helping adults and children get into sport," she explains. They run small group training camps as well as offering self guided camps where you can just book the training sessions you require - full details at www.MasPelegri.com.
