I am surprised by the picture. I had never heard his name before, and I wasn't watching closely to his shape in the video. My Mistake.

I saw images like this and thought he was a run-of-the-mill fitness trainer:



We try to stay away from bashing people on this forum, and it was not my intention. But to be honest, the tights did give me a chuckle and throw me back to bodybuilding of the 80's.

The most interesting man in the world on wearing tights.

"You may call them tights, but they are still pantyhose. Men do not wear pantyhose."




Stay thirsty my friend.

I did not take it as bashing ... figured it was mostly in good fun. The first time I saw Scott dressed that way, I pretty much thought the same thing.

Maybe if he revamped the way he dresses first impretions wouldn't be as such. I didn't mean to be so harch and apoligize if he is truly a good trainer.
You have to admit 99% of the trainers that dress like him can't get quality people, and have a get rich quick vid scam, and the web is loaded with them.
IF you personal know him and are trained by him and thats your pic then he must be ok.

Sorry, I have been slammed with Q? from people watching these scam vids and think they will look like Arnald in a 1 year cycle of the vids system when they are starting out at 6' and 120lbs. You know the type.

OK did some research. YES he was a big boy . YES he trains BBers. ALSO he trains figure and fittness also. SO you have to look at context of the vid. WERE was it under? BBing, Fittness or general health?

He has a vid doing the flex band also I don't think he has that directed to BBing. lol

Flex bands are not for bodybuilding? Dang, no wonder I am not getting any where.

Seriously, I did not think anyone was slamming Scott.

I was just thinking "If Scott looks weak, I sure do not want this skinny armed - Fat gutted person judged. I think Scott's presentation leaves more than a little to be desired and invites critique. His results with some folks might be commendable, but his dress does look like something from Biggest Loser and the ilk.

I totaly understand. I get judged myself when they see me in the chair.
I should be the last one to judge in reality.
