#077: Grant Giles on Psychology for the Awakened Athlete

Read more

Grant Giles is obsessed with understanding what happens between an athlete’s ears.

Grant has 25+ years of experience in triathlons, starting with a 14 year career as an elite athlete. He then turned to coaching and ultimately developed some of Australia’s most successful professional triathletes.

These life experiences - together with his own struggles with anxiety - led him to become obsessed with understanding what happens between an athlete’s ears.

These days, Grant runs Sports Supports, a business that closes the gap between psychology and sport by providing mind-body coaching to athletes.

The core of his philosophy is to develop ‘awakened athletes’ which he describes in his conversation as ‘somebody who is aware that they are more than the content of their thinking and can stand apart from their thinking and can actually enquire into it; ask questions of it, analyse it, or drop it all together.’

Grant’s approach can, I think, be summarised by: “don’t believe everything you think”.

FB #257 - The Mind Trap - Grant Giles

Read more

Once again I have my buddy and phenomenal coach Grant Giles on the podcast. I love Grant's writing and musing that is developed not through theory (sure he's spent the time reading, being open and learning) but mostly through his only personal journey into this mental world. What's first is uncomfortable then opens space and quietens the noise. We are only just scratching the surface to what the mind can do for us. 


  • The illusions of Fear
  • Judgment and how we are not our thoughts
  • Acceptance & non-resistance
  • Energy
  • Being a victim 
  • Creating mind space
  • Mental toughness
  • Thought traps, spirals of negativity and how to stop it
  • Responsibility
  • Getting rid of the mind suffering and anxiety we place on ourselves
  • And so much more that leads us to perform better

#108: Race on Instinct (Avoid Over Thinking) with Grant Giles

Read more

I've known Grant through mutual friends for a quite a while. He is a Triathlon coach and to me, he is one of the best coaches that teaches and coaches a lot base on Mindset, Intuitiveness, and Beliefs. In the podcast, we talked about a lot of different topics from How to Change your Structured Beliefs, the methods and the questions that he asks his athletes in order to get them to change their beliefs. We also tackled overplanning races and how many people are too guarded and protective with the races that they do and following that plan to a tee can sometimes work against them as opposed for them. We talked about mindfulness and how you are better off focusing on the process in order to get in to flow.
