Scott earned a baseball scholarship to Tabor College and graduated with a B.A. in English. Due to scarce teaching jobs, Scott enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2001. Following the events of September 11, he spent the next four years in Bosnia and Iraq.
He started his lengthy fitness career in corporate settings, managing two fitness centers in Philadelphia and Valley Forge. Scott comes to Elite from Balance in Chestnut Hill, where he served as head trainer for 14 years.
Scott has worked with a variety of clients ranging from sedentary and movement- restricted individuals to athletes. His training style stresses core strength, stability, balance, mobility, and functional strength.
Scott grew up in a small town in Kansas, where sports were an integral part of the community. As a three-sport athlete in high school, a collegiate and semi-pro baseball player, laborer in the family construction business and soldier, Scott developed a deep appreciation for physical fitness. Scott finds fulfillment when clients make positive physical, emotional and lifestyle changes. This explains why he has stayed in the fitness field for nearly two decades!
Scott and his wife Katey live in the Philadelphia area. They are the proud parents of two teenagers, who keep them young at heart. With his unique credentials and years of experience, Scott is a welcome addition to the EPT team.
