About Scott Hansen

I’ve been helping people to live their strongest lives for 15 years.

Over that time, I’ve learned from some of the best trainers, coaches, and mentors in the world. Now I’ve developed my own system for helping people like you get stronger, leaner, and more confident than they ever thought possible. 


By cutting through the clutter and garbage fitness myths that are being pounded into you from all angles.

a little history . . . .

As a chubby, insecure kid who wanted nothing more than to be a great athlete, I bought into every gimmick and fad you can imagine trying to get an edge. I wasted a lot of blood, sweat, and tears trying out training methods that left me broken down, weak, and injured.

Needless to say, I was turned off to what the fitness industry was all about at a pretty early age.

Eventually, I realized the only thing that was actually helping me have any success was effort, attitude, and perseverance. Luckily, those were free.

Combine those qualities with trial, error, and learning from the best in the business for a decade and a half, and I’ve been able to find what works to get people of all ages stronger, more muscular, leaner, and more athletic.
