Scott Whitney

Scott developed a passion for sport and performance through competing in long‐distance running and bouldering prior to attending university. Scott’s academic achievements include a BSc honours degree in Sports Therapy and an MSc degree in Strength and Conditioning. He is also a member of The Society of Sports Therapists and CIMSPA.

Previously, he has worked with amateur and elite athletes, ranging from university sports teams to
elite rugby league athletes and Team GB rowers. He currently works with various gyms in developing
and delivering training programmes for amateur athletes and gym‐goers. While passive treatments
remain in his arsenal as a Sports Therapist, Scott uses his skills to promote physical activity for
combatting obesity, lower back pain and other sporting injuries, and simultaneously providing
programmes for athletic development.

Being a recent graduate, Scott strives to gain experience wherever possible, offering advice and
sharing knowledge along the way. He believes it is important to practice what you preach, so in his
spare time, Scott practices Olympic Weightlifting and enjoys being active outdoors in all weathers,
although he still believes it is important to make ample time for social activities.
