Meet Scott

About Me

I grew up in Austin, Texas am married and have 4 kids. I’ve been training others, for over 30 years. Although I’ve worked with members of the general public for many years, I currently primarily work with athletes at the high school level and up. I have numerous certifications including those from the National Academy Of Sports Medicine (NASM), International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), and a CPR certification.  After playing high school football, I needed a physical outlet and discovered bodybuilding. I walked into at Gold’s Gym in Waco while attending Baylor University and have been lifting weights ever since.

I’ve won various titles during the 13 years that I competed in bodybuilding in both the National Physique Committee (NPC) and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and always placed in the top 3 of any contest that I entered.  Bodybuilding taught me about the value of hard work, discipline and sacrifice. I enjoy writing and have written 6 books so far on heath and fitness, bodybuilding and a children’s book with my kids, I have been a contributing writer for numerous health and fitness websites and magazines.

I was a member of the Austin’s Mayor Fitness Council in 2007 and worked on the advisory board for “America’s Fittest City” campaign with other leaders in the community. I still compete regularly in events such as Austin’s Fittest (2015 winner over age 50). I love training hungry, driven individuals to help them see the possibilities, set goals and then crush those goals.

What Sets Your Training Apart?

I’ve been told that mindset is one of the factors that sets my training apart. We regularly talk about goals and greatness. Peak Performance. The training has to have a purpose. To achieve the best results, I weigh each of my athletes once a week, oversee their nutrition, provide daily feedback on their nutrition and set strength, speed and agility goals. My strength and conditioning program is not one sided. It’s not just about lifting heavy weights. It’s about nutrition, mindset, improving speed, agility, flexibility and strength. I know of no other program that goes to the lengths as mine does to ensure the best possible results. This is NFL caliber strength and conditioning.

What Success Has Your Training Had?

Results. It’s always about results. Although I’ve been training people for over 30 years, I realized how much I loved training athletes just 3 years ago. My first high school athlete showed up at age 15. We began training 3 x a week at 5:30 in the morning before school. I monitored his nutrition. I weighed him. I worked out with him and pushed him.

Fast forward.

He’s gained over 40lbs, owns most of the All Time strength records at Cedar Park High School, is a 2 year starting linebacker and has 4 firm college offers as of this writing.  What’s special about him? He’s hungry, motivated and is coachable. His parents trusted me to do my thing. I’ll always be thankful for that. Cedar Park won the 5a State Championship in football in 2015.


The basics always work. Bench Press, Deadlifts, Squats, Cleans, Pull Ups. Agility drills, speed drills, jumping, pushing, pulling. Nutrition. Mindset. Peak performance. My training keeps me strong and healthy. It allowed me to win the title of Austin’s Fittest Man 2015 (Over 50).

Who Have You Learned From?

The list is long.

Kelly Hitchcock. Kelly was my training partner for a period when I lived in Dallas. Kelly went on to win Mr Texas and Mr USA (class winner). Kelly owns and operates 2 very popular gyms in Tyler, is a strength coach, speaker, teacher and works with very high level college and pro athletes (Greg Ward, Jr of the Philadelphia Eagles and Tyus Bowser of the Baltimore Ravens).

Frank Capallupo. I met Frank in the gym around 1990. Frank was a Mr America (Masters) winner and a former Marine. I learned about business and bodybuilding from Frank.  Frank became my boss in the corporate world for 10 years. I rose the ranks and became a supervisor, a buyer, and a manager.  I managed 3 supervisors and over 30 employees.  I learned how to work with people.  I learned to go for the win-win.  I was responsible for a multi-million dollar budget.

Ed Smith.  Ed was my supervisor and a training partner.  He was a pilot in the Air Force.  I learned how to have fun while working hard.

Mike Scarcella. Mike was another training partner of mine. Mike went on to become Mr America and MR USA. Discipline, focus, hard work.

Joe Vitale. Joe appeared in the movie, “The Secret” and is an author of numerous books. Joe helped me with the mental aspect of life. His books are highly recommended.

My wife. My wife, Kristin, was a D1 athlete. She was a member of the Diving team at The University of Nevada and a team captain.  She ws a scholar athlete and won many awards in both diving and in education.  One of my best training partners and a constant source of inspiration.

My parents.  My Dad was an attorney in Austin.  He died in 2007.  He was very involved in the community and in the church.  He was president of the Rotary Club, a member of Toastmasters, a Deacon at Hyde Park Baptist church in Austin.  My Mom was athletic, played tennis and introduced me to healthy eating.
