James Roberts Coaching (JRC) was founded in 2016 by James Roberts and Claire Whitworth, both keen cyclists having enjoyed a cumulative total of over 40 years of club riding, training and racing at National and International level. Having a passion for cycling was the main reason for developing JRC as a way of sharing their knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the sport with others.
Both James and Claire grew up in a club environment, starting to race in school events such as ESCA during the era of Chris Boardman, with Claire going on to be School Girl National Champion in 1987 and subsequently being selected to represent the Junior Girls on the National GB Squad then racing for a French Regional Team in Brittany, France. As well as being a competitive cyclist, James was also a competitive ski racer, representing GB in the Masters in France, Italy and the Czech Republic, achieving a bronze medal in Giant Slalom.
Have both competed at Regional, National and International level, on road and track, James and Claire recently competed at National and World Masters Level on the track, and fully understand the demands and pressures of training to achieve personal goals whilst fitting training and racing into a hectic work / life / family balance.
Behind the scenes, club and family cycling is still at the heart of their passion for the sport, and puts the fun and friendship into what is undoubtedly one of the finest sports in the world to be a part of.

JRC is now promoting coached Wattbike training sessions on the latest Wattbikes, based at FastFitStrong (The White Rooms, Lymm). The sessions are designed to replicate race efforts, offer specific training focus.
'Before I started working with JRC my training didn't have much structure and I wasn't pushing myself during training sessions... trying to work towards my goals but not really knowing how I was going to get there. After working with JRC my training was structured, varied and fitted in around the time I had available, it really inspired me and gave me confidence that I could achieve my goals.... Straight away I started getting PBs and continued to make progress throughout the season.' Jill F Discipline: Time Trial

Ken CYCLING DISCIPLINES: GENERAL FITNESS AND ENDURANCE So it all started for me in October 2016. After an on/off summer and struggling with my weight, I was determined to get some good winter training in and needed to do some long steady rides. Unfortunately that is when the trouble started, the colds came one after the other, so most of the winter months were spent on the bike and off it. I had a word with James and we agreed to set up a plan, building up to my overall goal of being able to ride like a grand tour rider, riding over a period of a few weeks, not just an odd day or sportive. So I set about riding at level 1 for 8 weeks (it nearly killed me ) to kick start my base training, whilst we also tackled the weight problems and management of my type 2 diabetes. We worked on a low carb diet ( known as the keto diet plan ), alongside the training sessions. After the 8 weeks I started to do more hours on the bike riding most morning rides fasted with only water to drink (no more gels or carbo drinks) and the weight started to come off and I was able to ride longer and harder, and my overall fitness imporved greatly. It all came together with a Audax 200 km ride, even though I had a few problems along the way I stuck with it and rose to the challenge. Now I can go in the supermarket and some people don’t recognise me! So after a short break its now down to the gym to do some strength training /running, some long hours in the saddle and work on the project for 2018 which is to ride the highland 500, so it’s onward and upward and all with the help of James Roberts Coaching, thanks James.
