Exercise and fitness became a part of my life at a very young age. I started working in a gym at the age of 14 and right away realized that I had found my true passion. Growing up in a gym not only allowed me to attain a great physique but also taught me everything about running a fitness business. I worked as the maintenance manager at Gold’s Gym in Methuen, MA all through High School balancing school, exercising, and my obligations at the gym. I then decided to study Business in college to learn the theory behind entrepreneurship since I had already gotten plenty of hands on experience!
Through college I never lost sight of my passion for fitness and managed to focus on my studies while working as a personal trainer and as a helper during the construction of a brand new gym called “Answer is Fitness.” I remember training clients, going to school and many times sleeping at the gym to help with set up of new equipment!
Once I graduated from Merrimack College in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management I moved to North Attleboro, MA and worked as the General Manager of the very gym I had helped build. During that period, I realized that it was time to make my dream of revolutionizing the fitness industry a reality and launched ScottHermanFitness.com. Soon after, I won a contest for Men’s Health magazine for the “Best Abs on The East Coast” which opened many doors for me in the modeling industry. The increased exposure allowed me to expand my business and took me a step closer to reaching my goal of taking the fitness industry to the next level.
With the rapid rise in popularity of various social media platforms all over the world I was able to utilize Facebook and YouTube as the ultimate vehicles for bringing my teachings to the world. Now, I am blessed to have a community of over 670,000 Hermanites worldwide! I plan to continue to produce quality content and help make the world a healthier place no matter your goal or fitness level.
With keeping my core values in mind, that lead to the re-launch of SHF as MuscularStrength.com in 2015. My team and I hope that this rebranding will attract more fitness content creators to join us in our journey to teach fitness to the world and continue fuel the growth of our community!
