Before interviewing Scott Herman I had hoped I’d like him. After just a few minutes talking to him I knew I not only liked Scott, but I instantly admired him, too. Not only does his smokin’ body rock the pages of Compete’s 6th annual swimsuit issue but Scott also rocks the world of online fitness. What I mean by that is Scott’s presence on YouTube, Facebook (115,000 likes and counting), and his popular website, ScottHermanFitness.com. Online, Scott offers vast amounts of information to would-be Brad Pitts and Angelina Jolies.
Whether you’re overweight or fit as a fiddle, Scott’s online information will help you build a better you. But what makes Scott so special is that he offers a lot of information for free. So even if you used your last elliptical as a clothes’ hanger, you have nothing to lose by visiting Scott online. His online Silver membership is just $4.99 a month. That’s a far cry from the $200 an hour some celebrity trainers charge. In fact, when I asked Scott what the goal of his online empire was, he said “I strive to make sure my Facebook page and website are fun places for everyone to learn and grow, regardless of his/her current fitness level.”
But just when you think Scott is too good to be true, well, there’s more. Team Scott Herman participates in the annual AIDS LifeCycle, a 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles (June 3-9) to raise money to end AIDS. And Scott’s team raises a truckload of money for this important cause. So he helps people get fit AND he volunteers to raise money to end AIDS. I think that makes him a lot more than just a smokin’ body, eh?
