I am Scott Groth - a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certified personal trainer (CPT). I obtained Nutrition Coaching Certification (CNC) from National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and a certification in plant-based nutrition through T Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies at Cornell University. I want to help people achieve their goals to live a healthier life, control their weight, be stronger, perform better and have less of a negative impact on the planet along the way.

I am planner, strategist and a coach. My intent is to create structure and create a path to success for whatever result I or my clients want.

I grew up in Bellingham and Franklin, Massachusetts. My brother, sister and I loved playing sports and being outside.  My family enjoyed camping and spending time with friends and family.  When I was about thirteen, I wanted to be stronger so I began learning about strength training and started weight training.

I played a couple of years of football and basketball in high school.  At my size and average ability, sports were for fun and working part-time was more of a necessity.

I continued weight lifting and playing basketball, volleyball, and softball into my thirties.   Later, I became more serious about sports with less contact like running, biking, swimming, tennis, hiking, skiing and cross-country skiing.

My professional career has centered on the engineering of buildings. I have an associate's degree in computer science from Dean College, a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Northeastern University, and professional engineer's license.  Also, while continuing my engineering career, I have pursued my passion for self-improvement and for helping others be healthier by becoming a certified personal trainer and getting certified in plant-based nutrition.

My wife and I lived in Rhode Island for four years and are now in Massachusetts. We have enjoyed the beautiful beaches, the coast line, and the many conservation areas. We also enjoy New Hampshire's White Mountains and National Parks. We are fortunate to have very similar beliefs about staying active, having better nutrition and having less of an impact on the planet.

I am committed to acting professionally in all the work that I do. I want to continue to live a healthy life style and help those that want to do the same. 

The Future

I plan to stay active and healthy through flexibility, balance, core, strength, power, cardio and endurance training.  

I want to help!

I want to help you get motivated, create a strategy, take action and see results through personal training and better nutrition.
