Gemma Sampson joins us as a Liv ambassador, triathlete, accredited sports dietitian and performance nutritionist. She is a huge fan of Liv, which is demonstrated by her 4 Liv bikes (Avow, Envie, Avail and Langma) and can often be found in Giant Liverpool or out on their shop rides.
Gemma comes from a triathlon background. However, whilst training for Ironman Wales last year, she discovered time trialling, which will be her primary training focus for 2018.
Gemma is a sports dietitian, who specialises in performance nutrition for cyclists and triathletes, empowering cyclists and triathletes to fuel effectively during training and competition for optimal body composition and performance. She is keen to get more people to get outdoors, be active and healthier overall with their food, nutrition and lifestyle. She’s often jetting off around the world with her job, but her bike is never far behind!
As an accredited sports dietitian and performance nutritionist, Gemma wants to ensure women are fuelling themselves correctly to get them the best cycling results possible, whether it is losing weight, becoming fitter, stronger or training for a triathlon, cycling event or duathlon.
Gemma will be sharing her nutrition knowledge with female cyclists by hosting Liv Presents events and ride outs at Giant Liverpool, Giant Blackpool and Giant Blackburn in 2018.
