Scott on his coaching philosophy

​"My coaching philosophy can be summed up in two words: "science personalized." Decades of scientific research and data on both elite and non-elite athletes have provided a set of principles on the most effective and efficient way to train. However, each athlete is what we call in the scientific community an "n of 1" meaning that each athlete is a unique experiment. This is especially true with the everyday athlete who in addition to training has numerous responsibilities competing for their attention and time. Therefore, these scientific principles must be adjusted and applied based on each athletes goals, abilities, and constantly changing needs."


Scott began his education in exercise physiology and nutrition earning a NASM Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) certification in 2013. In 2014 he earned a U.S. Masters Swimming Level 2 Coach certification and a NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS) certification. In 2015 Scott earned a USA Cycling Level 3 Coach certification, USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach certification, and a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach certification. In 2017 he earned the Precision Nutrition Level 1 (PN1) certification. 

Wanting to dive deeper into the world of physiology and nutrition, Scott earned his Masters of Science in Food Science and Human Nutrition with a concentration in Nutrition Science from Colorado State University in 2020. In addition to course work, Scott conducted laboratory research to examine the impact of nutrition on the composition of the gut microbiome and the development of vascular dysfunction and cardiovascular disease. 

Following his Masters, Scott earned the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification in 2021. In 2022, he was recertified as a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach and a USA Cycling Level 3 Coach. In 2023, Scott completed the USA Triathlon Level I Short Course Area of Focus.
