My name is Scott Winters and I’m the new kid on the block at Definition Fitness. I am a certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and also a certified Spinning Instructor (Mad Dog Athletics). I happy to report that I most recently received my Sports Nutrition Specialist accreditation through the ISSN. There are three important components to essential and balanced fitness: 1) strength training, 2) cardio training, and 3) nutrition. I consider my fitness credentials to encompass these three vital components and have worked with determination to reach this fitness “trifecta”.
A little about me: I was raised in the Midwest, but since 2000 I am definitely a transplanted Floridian. All of my immediate family resides in Florida also. Mostly recently, I was a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor at The Fitness Center at Florida Hospital in Orlando, FL. There I worked with a wide array of clients age-wise, fitness abilities, special conditions, whom collectively provided me invaluable knowledge and experience. I also led 5 group fitness classes a week, bootcamps and leg sculpting classes, and I loved everyone minute of it. Prior to that I owned my own successful personal training studio just east of downtown Orlando, and conducted Spinning classes there also.
I am lucky to come from an athletic-minded family where tennis, baseball, cycling, track and field, were a big part of my upbringing. Ever since high school (quite a long time ago), I have been involved in some type of sport or athletic activity whether that be my daily workouts or Spinning sessions, participating in an occasional 5K or 10K run, cycling an organized 28 or 42 mile ride, a couple rounds of tennis, my annual ski trips, or just rollerblading along a rails-to-trails. This all has followed me through my lifetime; fitness, health, and nutrition have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I am grateful I am doing something I love as a profession, and I thankful that I am able to help my clients push their limits and reach their goals for a fitter life both mind and body. It’s SO much more than just lifting weights and running the treadmill, and I look forward to continuing to lead and inspire my clients here at Definition Fitness.
