Hello...my name is Scott and I'm an indepenedent Personal Trainer working out of multiple gyms in the east metro area. I am a veteran of the United States Air Force where I served as a Fitness Specialist. In addition, I worked with student athletes at the University of St. Thomas as a Weight Room Supervisor. Finally, as a Personal Trainer for Golds Gym, I trained individuals who desired to lose weight, increase energy and stamina, as well as add strength through increased lean body mass. I will use my lifelong passion for health and fitness to motivate, encourage and inspire you. Rest assured, if you entrust me with your training, you will achieve overall fitness levels that will change your life. Your health is worth the investment!
I have had the unique experience of training many individuals over the years from all walks of life. I've enjoyed working hand in hand with student athletes, career oriented professionals, as well as the elderly. Helping my clients achieve their fitness goals is what brings me the most satisfaction as a trainer.
I started working with Scott/Fitness Quest in May 2019, and knew nothing about how to use fitness center equipment, routines, etc. Scott has been a great trainer -- taking me from being a novice to now knowing what to do / how to use gym equipment. I have Parkinson's which has its own concerns, but Scott has adapted equipment/routines as needed, plus has included a lot of routines I can be doing to improve balance and other areas that are impaired. I'm only stopping my workouts with Scott at this time (spring, 2020) as I'm moving out of the area and am sure hoping I find a new trainer (in new location) who has Scott's knowledge, level of caring about his clients, and has his great ability to motivate and encourage. I will miss working with him!
I have been training with Scott Schilling with Fitness Quest twice a week for more than 2 years. He has an excellent training style. He listens to me to understand what I want to achieve and then helps me to achieve my goals both during training sessions as well as through informational emails. He works the whole body varying the exercises to make sure all my muscles are exercised. He changes up the routine making our sessions interesting. He challenges me and at the same time provides positive encouraging feedback.
When I first walked into a gym I was intimidated by the huge array of exercise equipment. When I was offered a one hour free session with Scott I gladly accepted. By the end of that session I was convinced that I would not succeed on my own. I knew that without Scott's motivation and more knowledge of the equipment and how my body would would react to stress, I would give up on my own. By signing up with Scott for 3 months I was sure that I would commit myself to him so I would not let him down. After three months I had a good knowledge of the equipment and I had noticeable results. I lost over 20 pounds and went from a 38 inch waist to a 34. Scott was always flexible with scheduling, motivating me to push myself and just a very likable man. Thank you Scott, you changed my life.
Very professional, Is on time and takes his time with his clients
