As part of living an active and healthy lifestyle, Kevin did his first triathlon in 1999. Since then it has been a mission of self-discovery to reach
new personal bests, tackle challenging events, and help others live a healthy lifestyle and improve.
Kevin has completed over 50 races of varying distances including several Ironmans, half Ironmans, and marathons. His passion for racing continues
to grow along with his desire to learn more about training and racing and to share that knowledge. He complements his racing experience with
certification as an NCCP triathlon coach. In 2011 Kevin decided to leave his job in the financial services industry and make his part-time coaching
business a full-time career. He's never looked back and his passion for all things coaching, learning, training and racing grows stronger every year.
Kevin has been instructing at WattsUp and coaching individual athletes since 2010. As WattsUp's Manager, Kevin enjoys interacting with the
athletes, learning about their goals and helping them achieve them. He is inspired by the WattsUp athletes and their commitment to improve and make
fitness a priority in their lives.
Adam developed an interest in endurance sports while studying Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. Over the next several years he
competed in numerous cycling, triathlon, and running events while developing his coaching skills. It didn't take long before he came to
the humbling conclusion that he made a better coach than an athlete, and is now fond of living by the credo "Some do, and some coach". Between
his personal coaching and establishing/operating WattsUp Cycling, he has helped literally hundreds and hundreds of people become athletes, and
athletes become champions.

Miranda entered the sport of triathlon in 2003. Age group success led her to turn pro in 2012, racing primarily the 70.3
(half ironman) circuit for a couple of years. Highlighted by qualifying for and competing in the pro division of the 2013
70.3 World Championships and completing her first Ironman that same year in Arizona. One athletic goal remains: qualify
for and compete in the Ironman Hawaii. Miranda is also a Registered Massage Therapist (having graduated from the
Sutherland-Chan School for Massage Therapy in 2016) and a certified Triathlon Coach.
My passion for cycling started while racing motorcycles (motocross) in my early teens, using the road bike as a form of cross-training as it's a great
low-impact form of exercise. When my motocross career ended, I went out on a limb and tried a road race - and I quickly became hooked on the sport! Drawn
in by the tactical challenges and the need to consistently push the limits, I hired a coach and began to see big gains in my fitness and racing abilities. This
is when I began to really enjoy the process of fine tuning your body for competition, just as though you would modify and tune the engine of a motorcycle
in preparation for a race. With the support of my coach, I worked my way through the ranks and raced with an Elite amateur team in Ontario. During the
winter months I would teach indoor cycling classes and coach other riders - I enjoy motivating and helping others reach their goals.
Fixing and working on bicycles is something that came very naturally to me since I was a motorcycle technician by trade, and have a diploma in
Mechanical Engineering. While in career transition from the motorcycle industry, I worked at one of the GTA's premier road bike shops for a few years
before opening the first Velofix Mobile Bike Shop franchise in Ontario.
I am proud to offer my mechanical services on-site at WattsUp, along with instructing classes this winter. Feel free to ask me any fitness or bike
related questions - I am here to help and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Scott Judges is the founder and owner of FITT 1ST, a premier and independent bike fitting service in Toronto. Scott has a BSc from the
University of Toronto. He's a member of the Serotta International Cycling Institute (SICI), and is a Certified SICI Bike Fitting Professional
(the most internationally recognized and comprehensive certification at present). Scott has fit scores of WattsUp athletes on their bikes, from
first timers, to road cyclists, to Ironman triathletes.
Scott began cycling in the summers as cross training for varsity wrestling while in university. Commuting kept Scott on the bike following graduation, but then he
stepped away from riding for a few years.
In 2012 Scott started riding again, casually and with no real intentions. Some organized riding with local Toronto based clubs turned into joining Midweek
Cycling Club. This quickly led to being hooked on road racing and in turn a constant pursuit of good training. Scott races, volunteers and coaches with his
local club and also instructs at WattsUp in the winter months. He continues to train and chase a Category 1 upgrade on the road.
