My Story

Greg Grosicki is a husband, father, and Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory at Georgia Southern University. Greg’s career in endurance sport began as a college runner and bike racer, which prepared him for nearly a decade of success in amateur triathlon. Like many, Greg became infatuated with Zwift racing during the pandemic and loves the convenience of being able to wake up in the morning and get a killer workout before starting the day. As a scientist, Greg conducts research exploring exercise and dietary interventions to optimize health and human performance, and specific areas of interest include ultra-endurance exercise and the gut microbiome, as well as novel lifestyle strategies to improve cardiovascular health.

How you discovered Zwift

Downloaded Zwift in the winter of 2017 while living in Boston but didn’t start Zwift racing until August of 2019. Was training ~15-20 hours for Ironman Texas spring of 2020 when COVID derailed the entire triathlon season. Began taking out my aggression via Zwift racing and the rest is history. Love how I can satisfy my competitive spirit and get in a great workout before my daughter (15 months old) is out of bed.

Real life athletics background

Started long distance running in high school and was recruited to run for University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida). Got injured and transferred to William and Mary where I joined the cycling club. Figured I would be god’s gift to cycling and spent many years getting trounced by my teammates – absolutely fell in love with the bike (Made it to Category 2). 2010 won my age group in the Duathlon World Championships (Scotland) on a road bike. Started racing triathlons in graduate school to avoid crashing and prolonging my tenure as a broke graduate student. Joined the Every Man Jack triathlon team in 2015. Raced first ironman in 2017 and placed 4th amateur at Ironman Louisville (9:01; fastest amateur bike split) and 2018 competed in the Ironman World Championships in Kona.

Zwift racing on a TT bike for dual recording purposes. Hoping to get a power meter for road bike soon so that I can sprint like Holden.
