The Coaches

Becca and Stuart are accomplished endurance athletes.

They will be designing and leading Watts Up Training’s sessions to give you the Power to PR!

Meet Becca!

Originally from the mid-west Becca moved to California in 1987. She found her passion for endurance sports after having children. She has worked hard over the last 13 years to be the best athlete she can be and has improved her Ironman time from 16:41 to 10:57 including a 3:45 run off the bike! While juggling jobs and family, she has now successfully trained for and completed several Ironman races as well as qualifying for the Boston Marathon three times.

Becca, who in a previous career taught Middle and High School, really enjoys the process of training and racing and loves to share her knowledge and experience….she may even give you some homework on occasion!

Becca’s mantra is train hard, race easy! Well, not that easy!

Becca has taken her passion for endurance sports a step further and has earned (and is current) in the following Certifications:

  • USAT L1
  • USAC L2
  • RRCA
  • Training Peaks University
Ironman Arizona 2018

Meet Stuart!

Stuart grew up in England and during his High School years played team sports, rugby, field hockey and basketball. Stuart started Moutain Bike during the mid-1980’s Mountain Bike boom and fell in love with knobbly tires! In 2000. he moved to California and continued Mountain Biking, spending countless hours in the Santa Monica Mountains. In late 2006 he turned his attention to running and finished his first Marathon the following summer. This was the gateway into trail running and subsequently Ultra Marathons of which he has finished several 50km and 50 mile races.

In March of 2012 he survived his first Triathlon; a Sprint. Eight months later he finished Ironman Arizona! Post Ironman cycling has become his main focus. More recently he has embraced the recent gravel explosion racing at The Belgian Waffle Ride, Crushar in the Tushar and Dirty Kanza 200. Almost as much as he likes gravel he likes climbing and has ridden to the top of some of the highest peaks in the US including Mt Evans, (14,265’), Mauna Kea (13,803’) and over Tioga Pass (9.945’). He is a member of the Everesting Hall of Fame having completed three first known ascents in the local area as well as a vEveresting on Zwift. He is also a “Knight of Sufferlandria” having completed 10 back-to-back Sufferfest rides on an indoor trainer!

Mauna Kea HI 2017

A self confessed data junkie (currently up to his armpits in WKO5), he has been using indoor structured cycling training for over 10 years and is current in the following training Certifications:

  • USAC L2
  • Training Peaks University
  • Training Peaks Power Certification

Both Becca and Stuart lead the training sessions.
