Craig Scott

I obtained my Exercise Science undergraduate degree from Liberty University in May of 2019. I believe that exercise and fitness can improve daily life and that everybody should participate in some sort of exercise daily. My passion is in working with clients to enhance their quality of life; whether that is helping them balance as they descend steps or by teaching them how to lift properly. I love working with individuals to push them towards their personal fitness goals. 

I also have a passion for working with pre-college athletes. I believe that exercise can be used as a means to prevent sport related injury. I work with athletes to prevent sport related injuries and help prepare them for college athletics.  Training them how to do compound movements and I coach proper body mechanics.

ACSM Certified Exercise Physiologist (EP-C), 
B.S in Exercise Science (Fitness Specialist)

Background: I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in fitness training as a player, coach, student and now trainer of 3 years. I was a student-athlete for Liberty University Women’s Soccer (LUWS) program, played semi-pro, coached for Jefferson Forest High School, and Student-Coached for LUWS. I have seen the strengths and weaknesses of many fitness coaches over the years and have pulled in to my training the aspects of greatest importance. It is incredible to see clients’ goals come in to fruition in the gym. Each individual comes in with different objectives in mind, I design a program specific to their needs. Whether the desire is to increase function, gain confidence in the gym and a better mind and body relationship or enhance performance for their sport, the outcome is extremely rewarding.
