BodyFit Complete Fitness was created with the goal of making fitness fun and achievable for all. We wanted a space that members and clients felt welcomed and comfortable. And so, with an understanding that that looks different for everyone, we created a boutique gym in Little Italy San Diego that is welcoming to all ages and fitness levels. Scott and Nina don't only live the fit lifestyle in the gym, they take it with them—and their two young boys—everywhere they go!

Growing up, Scott was an avid hockey player.  He was a member of the 1999 Vermont State Championship team and played in the Atlantic Junior Hockey League.  Due to a shoulder injury Scott was unable to play varsity college hockey, so he helped found the University of Vermont club hockey team.  In addition to hockey, Scott was also a member of his high school varsity lacrosse and baseball teams. 

Since relocating to San Diego, Scott has taken up running and has participated in a variety of races including the Half Marathon Triple Crown, the San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon (multiple times), and recently started participating in triathlons. Scott is also the strength and conditioning coach for the UTC figure skating team.  He is a member of the American Dietetic Association.

These days, Scott is channeling his love of hockey into watching and training his boys, Austin and Dylan.
