HP3 Coaching

Level 2 certified coach

Having a good coach can be the difference between success and falling short, between personal achievement and disappointment. A coach can take the guesswork out of training, be objective as to what you need, motivate you, make you accountable, set realistic goals and achievable targets, mentor and guide you to your best physical and mental shape to deliver your best performance.

Head Coach – Tim Pigott

I am a sports physiotherapist and endurance coach, with over 15yrs experience working with beginners through to international & Olympic athletes from a multitude of sports, and university researcher.  Coupled with S&C, Retül Bike Fit (IBFI 4), British Triathlon level2 and British Athletics, I can help you return to, or realise your potential.  My area of expertise is working with athletes who have been struggling with illness or injury and returning them to peak performance, particularly the longer distance events.

My approach to coaching is much more than simply setting training sessions for you to complete. I provide a comprehensive service including training plans, race planning, psychology, nutritional advice (in partnership with Precision Hydration & CORE) and motivation.  This coupled with my own experience as a multisport athlete returning to competition after serious trauma places me in a unique position to particularly help guide and coach athletes back to peak performance following injuries or layoffs.  I have been racing for 30years from 1500m track to 100km trail and mountain races, sprint triathlons through to Ironman, and everything in between. I have coached athletes working towards their first 5k or their first marathon, through to elite runners and triathletes’ competing on the world stage. As a physio’ I work with Olympic / Paralympic and international runners, their coaches, sports scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, nutritionists, and sports psychologists.  As a university researcher in physio & biomechanics, I am passionate about taking cutting-edge research and applying it to our athletes in the field.

Notable athletes:
Tom Hollins – Winner ‘The Spine Race’, Double Bob Graham Round record holder
Helen Leigh – Winner Lakes in a Day, Coast to Coast multisport race
Julian Hood – 2:34:54 Marathon
