What was your training like before training with Gordon? My training has always been pretty good. The thing that I have struggled with historically is keeping a routine and consistently making it to the gym every week. I travel quite a bit with work which would break the routine and I’d lose momentum.

What is your training like now and what did you value most about it? Right at this moment my training is a little all over the place. I set some goals at the beginning of the year and with the help of Gordy, we were able to learn a lot about my body, how it responds to training and nutrition, and we were able to achieve those goals. Although I am not following a specific program at the moment, I have been able to maintain the routine of getting into the gym 4-5 days a week and still incorporate many of the exercises from Gordy’s programs.

In the near future I’d like to get into some movement and gymnastics as focus and supplement that with variations of the programs I followed with Gordon. I find that I am most motivated while learning, so the idea is to get into a few online gymnastic programs, with the end goal to master my own body weight.

With regards to what I value most about the training… Since the beginning of 2016 I have been able to maintain the routine of exercising at least 5 times a week. This has given me a lot of, peace of mind and reduced the noise in my head about being lazy or out of shape etc. From the start of this year we were able to really get my nutrition dialed in which had a similar effect in terms of feeling good and positive about what I had achieved for that specific day.

What are you training goals for 2017? The first goal was to get down to 10% body fat, which took about 3 months and having knocked that off, 8% is the new target. Having said that after 3 months of no alcohol, sugar, gluten and very low carbs I have relaxed a little with nutrition. I’m still quite strict with what I eat but will socially I might indulge a little more now here or there.

My training goals are quite different from where we began at the start of the year. For the rest of the year my focus is going to be on trying to improve flexibility, mobility rather than aesthetics. I have beaten up my body over the years. I played football and cricket almost all of my life which resulted in quite a few major surgeries, that along with training up to 8 times a week through the earlier part of this year and getting older I think this next training phase will help myself to physically feel better day to day while maintaining the results I was able to achieve with Gordy.

What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self? I don’t really carry too many regrets. The things I have done wrong in the past have made me who I am today. One of the things I have taken away from this recent training cycle with Gordy is to be patient with my training, to play the long game. By turning up every day and doing something (on lazy days even something light is better than nothing) you will achieve your goals in a more sustainable manner than over training and under eating as means to reach the destination quicker.

Your personal motto: Embrace the grind.

What’s the most played artist or song on your current playlist? Michael Kiwanuka.

What’s your advice on work/life balance? Being self-employed for many years I sacrificed my own health and well-being for the company, I could never find the time to train and would rationalize that it was for the greater good. It took a while for me to come to the realization that a fit, happy and healthy version of myself is a far more valuable asset to the business than one that isn’t. I started coming to work earlier (I work 7am to 5pm) of a morning and then hitting the gym around 10am, a time that suited me, for an hour a day.

You’re a busy person with a lot of responsibilities at work and at home. What keeps you driven to keep going and keep excelling? Achievement is the key to personal happiness. Keep setting goals and keep challenging yourself.

You run the operations at one of Australia’s leading numismatic companies. What tips do you have for being a good boss and leader? Being a good leader is about accountability and taking responsibility. If something fails under your leadership, you have failed. I firstly try to surround myself with great people, like-minded people. Make sure they understand exactly what is required of them and then give them the autonomy to execute in their own way.

What’s your #1 advice on career and professional development? Find something you love to do and it will come easy. If you don’t have anything like that, which many of us don’t. Find something that will allow you the financial freedom to live the lifestyle you chose to live outside of work.


Scott set out a goal to achieve 10% body fat but and to also learn more about training and his body. How to structure his nutrition around his lifestyle and work whilst still getting results and having the energy to do both work and life. We certainly found the sweet spot for Scott to do that.

Well done Scott – both goals accomplished.
