23. Success Stories, What Clients Have To Say!
* have no hesitation in recommending Scott. He is an excellent trainer who has shown me a clear path forward and motivated me to levels of personal fitness that I could not have achieved on my own. Results may vary from person to person.
I’ve been working with Scott for 9 months with a real objective to improve my golf game. I have been aware of the Paul Chek approach to fitness and sports performance for some years, and with Scott training me the results have been extraordinary.We have worked on balance, strength, speed and endurance and always with the mechanics of the golf swing as the key focus in our sessions.
I am now driving the ball substantially further than ever before, and consistently hitting 290 to 300 yards. I am able to rotate further and use the improved strength in the key muscles to great effect.
Before I started working with Scott I had a severe shoulder injury, consistent lower back pain and my endurance were very poor. After 9 months, my shoulder has improved to the point where I no longer suffer and my golf swing is free and full. My back is now strong and pain-free, and my endurance levels are at an all-time peak.
Not only have the training sessions created fantastic results, but Scott’s guidance on nutrition and lifestyle have helped me lose weight and improve sleeping patterns.
I have used personal trainers for 15 years, but Scott is the first one to take such a holistic approach. His knowledge derives from years of experience and a dedication to his profession.
As an avid golfer I can confirm that training with Scott has been a real game-changer for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to dramatically improve their golf performance. Kevin

I started working with Scott at the beginning of 2012. I have a number of issues which will take some time to fix but I have already seen an improvement. my lower back pin Scott correctly identified that my shoulder pain was due to my diet – within a week of changing my diet my shoulder pain has virtually gone. Scott is very much a no-nonsense guy, but he is also friendly, passionate about what he does, very thorough, and he really cares about getting his clients healthier and stronger. He rings me almost every day to see how I progressing with my training and lifestyle, and he is always explaining to me the way the body works and how to change my lifestyle and eating habits to gain the most from my exercise.*Results may vary from person to person.

I have been training with Scott Bryant for 2 years. Prior to this I was training independently for 1 year.
Since training with Scott my training has excelled, I am lifting more weights and I have substantially increased in muscle and body size and have lost fat. I have found Scott unstinting and to be the best and he has always got something new to do with the training we do. So if you like hard work and are serious about your health and wish to have a personal trainer then I sincerely recommend Scott! *Results may vary from person to person.

Scott has encouraged me to make small changes that have had a huge impact on my well being… Despite a recent injury, I have become leaner, stronger, more flexible and my posture has improved dramatically. Most importantly, my golf drive has increased by a good 30 yards.
I highly recommend Scott as a personal trainer to anyone who is serious about health and fitness, whether for reasons of vanity or for improving physical performance and well being. *Results may vary from person to person.

Linda Mitchell was initially a sceptic, believing she could only improve her fitness through exercise. well as having physical health issues, Linda was suffering from chronic knee pain. Due to the powerful, multi-faceted regime we put her under, we dramatically improved her posture, removing most of her pain, lowering her weight and improving her muscle and skin tone at the same time. Here’s what she had to say:
“I’ve been training with Scott for over a year, and I’ve noticed many changes… Other people have commented that there is something different about me. I had been experiencing quite severe knee pain, which has completely disappeared, and my skin tone has improved.”*Results may vary from person to person.

I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and I have been on on a journey to where I am today for a purpose. This journey of mine has been greatly influenced by the people who have made a positive impact on me. My recent experience of the help I have received from Scott Bryant CHEK Master Practitioner and Master Personal Trainer has had a lasting effect on me. I am a Personal Trainer and presently completing CHEK Exercise Coach. I have also studied Holistic Lifestyle Coaching in depth and now and HLC2. I have achieved these qualifications with much help and encouragement from Scott. My past is chequered with a history of illness brought about by a downward spiral of ever increasing stress. Due to the stress of working busy shifts as a Registered Nurse, two divorces, bringing up my children on my own under the duress of poor nurses wages I became very unwell indeed with the condition adrenal fatigue. For a while I did fast pace aerobic exercise and calorie restricted diets, which had a terrible effect on my adrenal glands. Adrenal Fatigue is a term used to denote a syndrome due to decreased ability of the adrenal glands to respond adequately to stresses. It affects the daily lives of those suffering from it. It is a less severe condition than Addison’s disease. When I finally decided to do something about the terrible bouts of depression I had been experiencing as a result of my adrenal fatigue. I went on to train as a Personal Trainer. This was as a result of being encouraged by other fitness professionals to do this. I knew this was what I wanted to continue doing with my life so I took early retirement from full time nursing and started setting up business as a PT. Following several months work as a PT in a Glasgow Gym . I found this unsatisfactory and wished to pursue a more holistic approach. Whilst looking online I came across The CHEK Institute. I proceeded to apply for the course and study to become a Holistic Lifestyle Coach (HLC) Level 1 Following my successful result in this Advanced Training Programme I decided I wanted to further myself academically with The CHEK Institute and train towards becoming a CHEK Practitioner. So I joined the CHEK Academy. It was just after this that Scott contacted me to say he would be my mentor during my time with the academy. As I wished to walk the walk as a CHEK Professional Scott offered to also be my own personal Trainer and HLC for the foreseeable future. So I embarked on a journey of health improvement whilst Scott also guided my as my mentor in the CHEK Academy. This started December 2014 Scott and I meet up over video calling on Skype as he is in London and I am in Lanark, Scotland. I had to fill out a series of questionnaires and he was able to do a certain amount of physical assessment with my interaction. The main problem I was having was low back pain and I also needed to lose about 20lbs in weight with the majority of the fat being round my middle. It has been with Scott’s help and through my studies as an HLC and CHEK Exercise Coach that I have come to realise that I should not have been on those anti-‐convulsants for idiopathic seizures in my teens or the anti-‐depressants in my fifties for what I thought was menopause related depression. There would have been a different route to take other than the allopathic one. This is the reason I will now look for holistic therapies rather than through conventional medicine. The root causes have been addressed by Scott and I feel satisfied that I am on the mend. Scott didn’t just look at these factors alone. He looked at me a whole person. He gave me the right kind of exercises that were based on the responses in my questionnaires. The exercises I was advised to do by Scott were Paul Chek’s Zone Exercises. He also advised me to keep meditating each day. These helped my gain more energy as the stress I had been experiencing had severely depleted my adrenal glands. He told me that I would go back to doing more challenging exercise when I had the energy to do it. Every now and then I would find that energy just to be shunted back a step with more problems with my adrenal fatigue. Scott taught me how listening to my body was so important. As I continue on my journey it is thanks to Scott I will have a greater chance of healing my adrenal fatigue Scott is also a Metabolic Typing Advisor and through a process of his screening I was found to be a “Polar “ type which meant I was to have 60% protein and fat + 40% carbohydrates n my diet. He emphasised the importance of doing this and through trial and error I managed to get on the right track. Scott advised me to try Doug Kaufmann’s ‘Anti-‐Fungal Diet ‘ and I following the initial phase of feeling spacey and lethargic I started to feel really well and lost 16 lbs in weight. I have had two lots of specimens sent off to a lab in South Wales via Scott’s help -‐ one in Feb this year and one in June. The first lot came back stating that I have intolerances to eggs, wheat and dairy. So I now avoid the offending foods thanks to Scott’s help and advice re how to manage my diet. It also showed up that I have the parasite blastocystis hominus which is very difficult to get rid of. One of the ways you can get this bug is caring for sick people, so I could have got this during my nursing years – even though I washed my hands thoroughly and wore gloves all the time. You can also get this abroad if you are in contact with dirty water (swimming pools, water used to wash salads etc). This parasite is very common but I wanted rid of it. The effects of having this parasite were worsening my adrenal fatigue. I also had a dysbiosis in my gut and I was producing too much bad bacteria. Scott advised me to eat in accordance with my Metabolic Type (MT) and to adhere to the 6 foundation principles of health. NUTRITION, HYDRATION, SLEEP, BREATHING, THINKING AND MOVEMENT. With his help I have covered these areas with success. We have long conversations over the phone and on Skype about adrenal fatigue, breathing correctly, meditation, drinking enough good quality water, getting to bed on time, spiritual issues, metabolic typing and the importance of having quiet times – particularly due to my adrenal fatigue. This is to name but a few of the topics of conversation we covered on our calls. Scott has given me some great advice about running my business and I really appreciate his long years experience as a PT. The main difficulty has been the adrenal fatigue because when I am tired I reach for the stimulants. I had a spell of severe stress due to having to move house and study for exams as well as my mother very ill with shingles. My adrenal fatigue took a slump and my diet fell by the wayside. However, Scott was by my side and he was there on the end of the phone or on Skype giving me support. It has been very difficult to get the weight off and I have been glad that I have had the time to focus on doing so at home while I was studying for HLC2 and now CHEK Exercise Coach. Scott’s help to do all this has been invaluable. My second lot of labs have come back with more unhealthy bacteria and the parasites are still there. So I continue with further supplements to take care of this as well as a change of supplements for my adrenal fatigue. Scott continues with support in relation to this including advising me to read the book “Adrenal Fatigue” by James Wilson. He has given me useful advise in relation to reducing it’s effects by avoiding energy draining people, ensuring enough rest and relaxation as well avoiding too much exercises. He reminds me of the principles of being more Yin instead of Yang. I am now a Mixed metabolic type which is consistent with the change of the climate here in Scotland. He has advised me to cut out grains as much as I can and I must admit I do feel a difference doing this and I am starting to lose more weight again. I had put a bit of weight back on during the recent stressful time but I have lost that weight again with Scott’s help. I adhere to the six foundation principles every day and things have settled down at home and I can get on with building my business. Six months on I feel 10 times better, my depression has stayed away and I now have a healthy formula to follow for life Scott has made a significant and positive difference to my life and his help continues with my journey to heal my adrenal fatigue and my gut. I thought of going to another Personal Trainer to help me lose the weight and start to feel better but I now know that Scott has been the right person who has been highly skilled enough to do what was needing to be done. He has been very thorough and patient with me and helped me take responsibility for my own health. I know now that there is something simple that runs through everything in his approach if you just stick to it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Scott. *Results may vary from person to person.

I had a sound healing with Scott Bryant, and I can say that it was a unique experience. Scott with his expertise combine with his bowls and instruments took me to another dimension of conscience. I left my session feeling very energised e relaxed, with the understanding that the ability to yield is a strength not a weakness, like a tree swaying in the wind… It is a state of deep inner relaxation that aligns us with our true nature and with the nature of existence. The more deeply you relax, the more you nourished by life. It leads to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. The more you let go and relax, the more at one with yourself and with life you become. Scott Bryant is a messenger on your healing journey!
I have been one of Scott ‘s client for the last 5 weeks and I would like to give a testimonial.I am a 58 years old woman and I approached Scott a while back to loose weight and getting fitter.I am extremely satisfied with him. He is very friendly, professional and loves his job.I have already lost 1 stone in 5 weeks and I am extremely pleased.I followed all his instructions to the letter and I already feel so much better.I am doing my exercises regularly and changed my way of life.He is exactly the person I was looking for as he does not only the physical but also the mental, spiritual as well as the nutrition guidance.I thoroughly recommend him *Results may vary from person to person
I work for a Local Authority dealing with Anti-social behaviour. This is front line work and can often become very physical dealing with underprivileged youths, drug dealers and other criminals. I am also a part-time doorman at various clubs in London, again I need to have a physical advantage over the ‘drunks’ and ‘yobs’ that plague licensed premises. I play rugby for a local team, and again need to be fit if I want to be effective. I have trained for several years having tried most programmes, gimmicks and personal trainers. Some aspects of weight training are mundane, ineffective and a total waste of money. I have used personal trainers in gyms before, but have never felt that they have given me decent results and indeed value for money.*Results may vary from person to person
This is where Scott Bryant comes into his own. I had reached several plateaus in my training, my bench press was going nowhere, there was a certain amount of body fat that I wanted to lose and although I had no major issues with my strength, my general level of fitness wasn’t up to scratch! Scott approached me while I was training and offered to ‘spot’ me whilst I was benching. He offered some advice on foot placement, and to the grip that I was using. Whilst this didn’t create a miracle, I found the exercise slightly easier. When I finished my set, he asked me questions concerning my training goals and made a ‘promise’ that he could make me reach some of these goals within a month if I have a few personal training sessions with him! I declined but over the next couple of weeks I watched him with his other clients and decided to take him up on his offer.I booked one session with Scott and demanded that we concentrate on my bench-pressing! I found Scott to be very professional in his approach, he has a very tongue in cheek humour, which he uses to break the boredom of training and indeed to spur you on. We used various pieces of equipment and eventually concentrated on my big lift. Although I didn’t break the barrier that day, he wrote out a detailed bench-pressing programme for me to use in the coming weeks.I noticed my progress improve, so I decided to book another session to help me make the big lift. Again Scott helped me to warm up correctly, to stretch properly and work up to the big lift. I managed to lift 120kg for the first time! I was elated and immediately booked more sessions with Scott to help me overcome my training weaknesses. I was frustrated to find that most, if not all of the prime-time were booked up by his other clients. I booked a few slots that suited me and continued to use the best personal trainer I have ever come across.
I have no hesitation in recommending Scott to other trainers. I find that Scott gives me good, hard training sessions using lots of Olympic lift, and general power-lifting exercises, emphasizing the masculine weight training culture. He is, however, able to adapt to the individual trainer and their needs, and he has as many female clients as male ones.

Hi, My name is Charmaine Thomas and I am a professional dancer. Scott Bryant has helped me improve on areas of weakness in relation to my dance career. My problems related to strength and core strength. Scott was able to develop a programme for me to improve my upper body strength. For instance as a Cheerleader I was unwilling and unable to stand at the base of a pyramid, but Scott helped increase my overhead and core strength to overcome this problem. I have also had rotator cuff problems, which with Scott’s help, I no longer have pain in my shoulders. I would highly recommend Scott as your first choice in personal training as his knowledge is excellent and he has a very caring manner towards you whether you are a male or female client.*Results may vary from person to person.
To Whom it May Concern
Scott is an excellent trainer, he is motivating, encouraging and knowledgeable. He always pushed me on to finish my reps or lift a heavier weight when I would have given up long before. Scott explained the exercises to me, told me which areas I was working and how it would benefit me, constantly ensuring that I was performing them correctly.
I would recommend Scott to anybody who is looking for a Personal Trainer – he is honest and firm but friendly and easy to get on with and, most importantly, he gets results.
Scott is a sensitive trainer – he has the ability to recognize when you are having a bad day and adapts your programme accordingly (and puts up with your bad moods!). He is proud of you and the achievements you make and rewards you with praise and encouragement for your progress and effort – which is inspiration enough to push yourself further.*Results may vary from person to person.

My name is Lachlan Freeman I am 12 years old I have been working with Scott for about five months with my friend James Donavon, who is twelve years old too. I have already felt the difference even though I have not been working with Scott that long. Scott really helps you with what to eat and what is bad for you, and he is an extremely nice guy. Which makes it even more fun to work out with him. He has been teaching James and I Kick Boxing and excises on things like the Swiss ball which helps your balancing. He has also been helping with things that help are the balance, and academic work. This means my life at school does not only improve in a sports aspect but also in the class. I also feel that I am beginning to sleep better and my attention at school has improved.*Results may vary from person to person
My name is James Donovan, and I am 12 years old. I have been training with Scott Bryant for about a year and already I have felt a dif.ference; not only in body but in mind. I have improved my academic work, and my body is getting a lot fitter. I really enjoy training with Scott, because he is a really nice guy. He changing his plans, on what we are going to do, depending on me not him. He respects the fact that I might be tired or injured. He is very reliable and never lets you down, except on the rarest of occasions, without letting you know at least 12 hours before. If he is late he rings up, and then adds the lost time at the end of the lesson.
He talks to you during your lesson and thus makes you feel safe and happy. I sometimes train with a friend, this makes it even better. But if I don’t it is still very fun. Unlike some other trainers, I enjoy training with Scott. Not only does he help you in your lessons, but he gives you information on what to eat at home. This means that you get fit and stay fit. Before I could never win any races, and then after just a few weeks of training; I won my race. Then I started getting into teams at school and I started feeling more healthy every day. This meant I had more energy for school.*Results may vary from person to person.
Scott has knowledge in a lot of different martial arts, ranging from Ikedo to Krav Maga. I am dysphasic, so is Scott, and he even helps me with that. Just shortly after training with Scott, and a lot of work revising, I got into a great new school, which I had thought that I might not get into. So Scott has changed a lot of things in my life. He has improved my health and academic work. Thus concluding: If you want to get fit and learn lots of different sports (like boxing and judo) than Scott is the most reliable and friendly trainer out there. *Results may vary from person to person.
What you get from Scott is honesty, motivation without any bullshit and a safe and expertly supervised workout. You also get a good laugh and if you’re up for it, the toughest workout you can take, which makes you look forward to the next session.

I have known Scott as a personal trainer for several months. Within a few sessions of training with Scott I noticed clear improvements in the muscle tone in my arms and shoulders, the body parts that I was specifically interested in changing.
He is an excellent motivator, who knows how to push his clients to reach and exceed their goals. Scott tailors each session to the ability and personality of the client in order to help them develop in the areas they want. He is also very focused on the client when training them, providing constant encouragement and assistance when it is needed.
Scott has a wealth of up-to-date knowledge about exercise and nutrition that he shares with his clients to assist in their training.*Results may vary from person to person.
Just a quick note to say that I have finally hit my target weight. Since I have been trying for two years and you did it in two months I suppose you deserve a bit of credit!
Seriously, I’m writing this for you to use with other clients as you’ve been the most motivational trainer I’ve ever had and certainly the first one to make gym work fun. Please refer anyone to me for a reference if you ever look for new clients or a new job.*Results may vary from person to person.

Scott’s approach to personal training is all about what is best and right for his client. He really tries to get inside your life to determine the best way to get the best from you and for you. He doesn’t have the attitude of some personal trainers which is no pain any gain. He works to alleviate pain for maximum gain to be pain-free. I suffered from lots of neck and shoulder tension but with Scott’s help and advice it has improved immensely. Scott is a really friendly outgoing guy who knows how to put someone at their ease. He is patient and always looking for your opinion and input during the training session. His style is informative and his sessions are not just about working out: he also incorporates relaxation which leaves you feeling energised. If you want to get the best from your body and feel better about yourself then having Scott as your personal trainer is a smart move.*Results may vary from person to person.
Hi, my name’s Andy Tyler. I have been training for 28 years. My sports are American football – played it for 9 years. I coach at the same team I played for – London Olympans. Been coaching for 3 years when I gave up football a year later after retiring I moved into martial arts where I have been ever since. Which adds up to 16ish years.You’re thinking “what does a man like that need help for?” Why, because training has changed a lot in 28 years, so I meet Scott at my gym. We were talking about my knee rehab (had an op 5 months ago now) when he saw the type of training I was doing. He said it’s not very proactive the type of core training you are doing, so he gave me a few tips. Got to say, Scott, the left knee is coming along. You just see how well Scott has been trained by Paul, CHEK.
So to today, Scott released my diaphragm. Felt OK. We talk about the next 4 weeks of training – it’s like the philosophy of the CHEK system is ‘less is more’ plus a change in my eating habits. And mediation. It’s like it’s a system for the whole body-mind thing. Trust me, this stuff works! Scott is coming on the London Olympians camp in April to give advice on the right core foods. Lots of stuff, so 4 weeks and I will let you all know the outcome of the next stage.You would not go wrong at all using Scott. He’s a nice lad. He does not complicate things. Well done mate see you soon.*Results may vary from person to person. London Olympians also Kalis Ilustrisimo UK also World Kubodo Federation
Coach Andy Tyler,
Scott approach to training is very different to personal trainers you will find in the gym. He is concerned about your whole well being and not just getting fit. He gives advice on everything from your posture to nutrition and from flexibility to your mental health.I had my 2nd child in October 2004 and started training with Scott in January 2005. As I never completely lost the ‘baby fat’ before the 2nd pregnancy there was a lot of work to do. I also had postnatal depression and Scott helped so much in terms of training, nutrition, supplements to take, getting lots of rest including having weekly massages and all of this helped immensely. Scott’s motivation levels are very high. After a session with him, you just want to carry on and learn more.1 year on the baby fat has gone and I am a lot leaner and stronger than I was before baby No.1Be patient though results don’t happen overnight, it is no quick fix and there is a lot to learn. You have to understand it is not just about getting hot, sweaty and out of breath every time you train.*Results may vary from person to person.
Scott asked me to complete HLC Holistic lifestyle coaching and advise me i had a series of problems. On his advice, I switched to a completely organic diet and started to drink a lot more water at room temperature. I found this very hard at first because I love tea, coffee, wine and beer! Scott also encouraged me to get to bed earlier to regulate my metabolism. Until then I had led a very erratic lifestyle, often being awake until 1or 2 am. Having taken Scott’s advice and I started to feel a lot better physically. I was looking for a fitness coach who could also give nutritional advice and found Scott on the web. CHEK Practitioner trainers have a holistic approach and has worked with one previously, I already knew how good they were. Scott introduced me to chi gung, which I find excellent because I can exercise and not get out of breath. Doing small movements and standing still felt strange, but it has really helped my mind to become clearer. Compared to a run-of-the-mill trainer, Scott’s fees are high, but he really knows his stuff and is an excellent motivator. Scott can really help you look and feel your best, but above all he really cares about his clients.
Scott Bryant has been my personal trainer for the last four months. I have always taken exercise and attended the Gym regularly but never seemed to make much progress. Since working with Scott I have noticed significant muscle development and increased strength. I would not have made this progress on my own for two reasons, I didn’t know how and I would never have pushed myself as hard as I do when working with Scott.
Scott has been my personal trainer for over 7 months now. During that time I have totally changed my approach to exercise, diet and lifestyle and consequently feel much more active healthy and energized Scott tailors a programme to suit the individual, taking into account specific needs (e.g. injuries) and personal ambition (weight loss etc ) he introduces new exercises and equipment to ensure that the training session are always interesting preventing the client from getting into a rut. although personal training might seem like a significant expense it really pays off because you can rest assured that your technique is correct and that you’re maximizing the time you put in. Having a personal trainer means you can’t shirk exercising – they act as your conscience? Scott is extremely professional reliable and caring and I’d recommend him to anyone – regardless of age, gender, level of fitness.*Results may vary from person to personI.
