Scott grew up in a rural town called Cooee in Tasmania. He went through his own health challenges as a teenager, which resulted in him dropping out of college after failing year 11.
Everything changed for Scott when he was invited to try out for the State Under 18 football team. Joining a community of young athletes who had high standards, along with a group of coaches who were there for support and accountability he soon started to make some healthy changes.
The physical demands forced Scott to switch from coke and lollies for breakfast to Weetbix and water, guided by the strength and conditioning coach.
Despite initially not being able to do a push-up and coming last in the long-distance running races, Scott persevered and made the team. He attributes the group coaching, exercise sessions and being a part of a healthy community for transforming his life physically and mentally.
At the end of that year, Scott moved to Perth in Western Australia to play football for the Subiaco Football Club and immediately started his studies to become a qualified personal trainer. He wanted to help others experience the life-changing benefits of prioritising self-care better.
Since then Scott has completed an Exercise & Sports Science degree and a Physiotherapy degree with First Class Honours, along with dozens of other health and fitness qualifications. He has also written a book and helped thousands of people move from pain & injury to living their best life.
