I am now driving the ball substantially further than ever before, and consistently hitting 290 to 300 yards
I’ve been working with Scott for 4 years with a real objective to improve my golf game. I have been aware of the Paul Chek approach to fitness and sports performance for some years, and with Scott training me the results have been extraordinary.
We have worked on balance, strength, speed, and endurance and always with the mechanics of the golf swing as the key focus in our sessions.
I am now driving the ball substantially further than ever before, and consistently hitting 290 to 300 yards. I am able to rotate further and use the improved strength of the key muscles to great effect.
Before I started working with Scott I had a severe shoulder injury, consistent lower back pain and my endurance was poor. After the first 6 months my shoulder improved to the point where I no longer suffered and my golf swing became much more free and full. My back is now strong and pain-free, and my endurance levels are at an all-time peak. Since training with Scott my handicap has reduced from 16 to 10.
Not only have the training sessions created fantastic results, but Scott’s guidance on nutrition and lifestyle have helped me lose weight and improve sleeping patterns.
I have used personal trainers for 15 years, but Scott is the first one to take such a holistic approach. His knowledge derives from years of experience and a dedication to his profession.

However, Scott was by my side and he was there on the end of the phone
I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and I have been on a journey to where I am today for a purpose. This journey of mine has been greatly influenced by the people who have made a positive impact on me. My recent experience of the help I have received from Scott Bryant CHEK Master Practitioner and Master Personal Trainer has had a lasting effect on me. I am a Personal Trainer and presently completing CHEK Exercise Coach. I have also studied Holistic Lifestyle Coaching in depth and now and HLC2. I have achieved these qualifications with much help and encouragement from Scott. My past is chequered with a history of illness brought about by a downward spiral of ever-increasing stress. Due to the stress of working busy shifts as a Registered Nurse, two divorces, bringing up my children on my own under the duress of poor nurses wages, I became very unwell indeed with the condition adrenal fatigue. For a while, I did fast pace aerobic exercise and calorie restricted diets, which had a terrible effect on my adrenal glands. Adrenal Fatigue is a term used to denote a syndrome due to decreased ability of the adrenal glands to respond adequately to stresses. It affects the daily lives of those suffering from it. It is a less severe condition than Addison’s disease. When I finally decided to do something about the terrible bouts of depression I had been experiencing as a result of my adrenal fatigue. I went on to train as a Personal Trainer. This was as a result of being encouraged by other fitness professionals to do this. I knew this was what I wanted to continue doing with my life so I took early retirement from full-time nursing and started setting up business as a PT. Following several months work as a PT in a Glasgow Gym. I found this unsatisfactory and wished to pursue a more holistic approach. Whilst looking online I came across The CHEK Institute. I proceeded to apply for the course and study to become a Holistic Lifestyle Coach (HLC) Level 1 Following my successful result in this Advanced Training Programme I decided I wanted to further myself academically with The CHEK Institute and train towards becoming a CHEK Practitioner.So I joined the CHEK Academy. It was just after this that Scott contacted me to say he would be my mentor during my time with the academy. As I wished to walk the walk as a CHEK Professional Scott offered to also be my own personal Trainer and HLC for the foreseeable future. So I embarked on a journey of health improvement whilst Scott also guided mine as my mentor in the CHEK Academy. This started December 2014 Scott and I meet up over video calling on Skype as he is in London and I am in Lanark, Scotland. I had to fill out a series of questionnaires and he was able to do a certain amount of physical assessment with my interaction. The main problem I was having was low back pain and I also needed to lose about 20lbs in weight with the majority of the fat being around my middle. It has been with Scott’s help and through my studies as an HLC and CHEK Exercise Coach that I have come to realize that I should not have been on those anti-‐convulsants for idiopathic seizures in my teens or the anti-‐depressants in my fifties for what I thought was menopause-related depression. There would have been a different route to take other than the allopathic one. This is the reason I will now look for holistic therapies rather than through conventional medicine. The root causes have been addressed by Scott and I feel satisfied that I am on the mend. Scott didn’t just look at these factors alone. He looked at me a whole person. He gave me the right kind of exercises that were based on the responses in my questionnaires. The exercises I was advised to do by Scott were Paul Chek’s Zone Exercises. He also advised me to keep meditating each day. These helped me gain more energy as the stress I had been experiencing had severely depleted my adrenal glands. He told me that I would go back to doing more challenging exercise when I had the energy to do it. Every now and then I would find that energy just to be shunted back a step with more problems with my adrenal fatigue. Scott taught me how listening to my body was so important. As I continue on my journey it is thanks to Scott I will have a greater chance of healing my adrenal fatigue Scott is also a Metabolic Typing Advisor and through a process of his screening I was found to be a “Polar “ type which meant I was to have 60% protein and fat + 40% carbohydrates n my diet. He emphasized the importance of doing this and through trial and error, I managed to get on the right track. Scott advised me to try Doug Kaufmann’s ‘Anti-‐Fungal Diet ‘ and I following the initial phase of feeling spacey and lethargic I started to feel really well and lost 16 lbs in weight. I have had two lots of specimens sent off to a lab in South Wales via Scott’s help -‐ one in Feb this year and one in June. The first lot came back stating that I have intolerances to eggs, wheat, and dairy. So I now avoid the offending foods thanks to Scott’s help and advice re how to manage my diet. It also showed up that I have the parasite blastocystis hominus which is very difficult to get rid of. One of the ways you can get this bug is caring for sick people, so I could have got this during my nursing years – even though I washed my hands thoroughly and wore gloves all the time. You can also get this abroad if you are in contact with dirty water (swimming pools, water used to wash salads etc). This parasite is very common but I wanted rid of it. The effects of having this parasite was worsening my adrenal fatigue. I also had a dysbiosis in my gut and I was producing too much bad bacteria. Scott advised me to eat in accordance with my Metabolic Type (MT) and to adhere to the 6 foundation principles of health. NUTRITION, HYDRATION, SLEEP, BREATHING, THINKING, AND MOVEMENT. With his help, I have covered these areas with success. We have long conversations over the phone and on Skype about adrenal fatigue, breathing correctly, meditation, drinking enough good quality water, getting to bed on time, spiritual issues, metabolic typing and the importance of having quiet times – particularly due to my adrenal fatigue. This is to name but a few of the topics of conversation we covered on our calls. Scott has given me some great advice about running my business and I really appreciate his long years of experience as a PT. The main difficulty has been the adrenal fatigue because when I am tired I reach for the stimulants. I had a spell of severe stress due to having to move house and study for exams as well as my mother very ill with shingles. My adrenal fatigue took a slump and my diet fell by the wayside. However, Scott was by my side and he was there on the end of the phone or on Skype giving me support. It has been very difficult to get the weight off and I have been glad that I have had the time to focus on doing so at home while I was studying for HLC2 and now CHEK Exercise Coach. Scott’s help to do all this has been invaluable. My second lot of labs have come back with more unhealthy bacteria and the parasites are still there. So I continue with further supplements to take care of this as well as a change of supplements for my adrenal fatigue. Scott continues with support in relation to this including advising me to read the book “Adrenal Fatigue” by James Wilson. He has given me useful advice in relation to reducing its effects by avoiding energy draining people, ensuring enough rest and relaxation as well as avoiding too many exercises. He reminds me of the principles of being more Yin instead of Yang. I am now a Mixed metabolic type which is consistent with the change of the climate here in Scotland. He has advised me to cut out grains as much as I can and I must admit I do feel a difference doing this and I am starting to lose more weight again. I had put a bit of weight back on during the recent stressful time but I have lost that weight again with Scott’s help. I adhere to the six founding principles every day and things have settled down at home and I can get on with building my business. Six months on I feel 10 times better, my depression has stayed away and I now have a healthy formula to follow for life Scott has made a significant and positive difference to my life and his help continues with my journey to heal my adrenal fatigue and my gut. I thought of going to another Personal Trainer to help me lose the weight and start to feel better but I now know that Scott has been the right person who has been highly skilled enough to do what was needed to be done. He has been very thorough and patient with me and helped me take responsibility for my own health. I know now that there is something simple that runs through everything in his approach if you just stick to it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Scott. *Results may

Scott was great in explaining where my blockages were and what I needed to do to heal them.
I was introduced to Scott through a mutual friend as I was dealing with some internal issues mental and emotionally I’d been to see many other therapists and healers before Scott but with no satisfaction, Scott was great in explaining where my blockages were and what I needed to do to heal them. He explained to me my energy systems including my chakras and the effect they were having on my life and health. Since my treatment started with Scott within 2 sessions my mental and emotional well-being has improved tremendously. I am still working with Scott and will continue to even when I’m fully healed. Thanks, Scott for sharing your gifts.

15th October 2021.
Don’t pay for the rest, go to the best!
I started with Scott wanting to gain strength, improve my forward head posture and become more flexible, we worked together for 1 year throughout lockdown, 1 session per week which produced slow but steady results. I learnt much more about the C.H.E.K system than the basics I already knew before starting. Scott truly enjoys his job and passes his knowledge on to his clients!!
” it, not a sprint, it takes time but it’s worth it all makes sense. But remember this is a marathon”
I had my reasons for calling Scott. Nothing to do with physical fitness. I work out 3 times a week plus yoga and dog walking. I had issues and anxiety but had them under control with antidepressants and a therapist.
“shamanic work with Scott to work through a stored emotional trauma”
I have been one of Scott ‘s client for the last 5 weeks and I would like to give a testimonial.
I am a 58 years old woman and I approached Scott a while back to loose weigh and getting fitter.I am extremely satisfied with him. He is very friendly, professional and loves his job.
I have already lost 1 stone in 5 weeks and I am extremely pleased.
I followed all his instructions to the letter and I already feel so much better.
I am doing my exercises regularly and changed my way of life.
He is exactly the person I was looking for as he does not only the physical but also the mental, spiritual as well as the nutrition guidance.
I thoroughly recommend him
“Would highly recommend him to anyone who desires good health and overall well being.”
I was lucky enough to have found Scott at a time when I was suffering from both upper and lower back pain at a very young age, with two herniated discs and prolonged soreness and tension across my upper body. This was developed over the years of a sedentary lifestyle and incorrect training in the gym.
I found Scott’s website online by randomly searching for “pain + personal trainer” on google and his website came out on the top of the results. I was immediately attracted by the way he set out his training philosophy, and the unanimously positive feedback he received from previous clients. I gave him a ring immediately. Despite being made aware of my limited affordability, he spent 45 minutes with on the phone asking about and advising on my conditions. I was touched by the genuine care he showed to me as a stranger, more than many doctors I have seen.
With limited time and income, I signed up to train once a week with Scott. Despite the limited frequency, the systematic approach he’s taken, the focus on both physical and spiritual health and the extensiveness and depth of the assessment he has done with me have been truly impressive. The programme I am on has been personalized for myself, based on my past and current conditions, and I am really starting to feel a difference. I look forward to the coming session with Scott, and would highly recommend him to anyone who desires good health and overall well being.

“just see how well Scott has been trained by Paul, CHEK.”
Hi, my name’s Andy Tyler. I have been training for 28 years. My sports are American football – played it for 9 years. I coach on the same team I played for – London Olympians. Been coaching for 3 years when I gave up football a year later after retiring I moved into martial arts where I have been ever since. Which adds up to 16ish years. You’re thinking “what does a man like that need help for?” Why, because training has changed a lot in 28 years, so I meet Scott at my gym. We were talking about my knee rehab (had an op 5 months ago now) when he saw the type of training I was doing. He said it’s not very proactive the type of core training you are doing, so he gave me a few tips. Got to say, Scott, the left knee is coming along. You just see how well Scott has been trained by Paul, CHEK.
So to today, Scott released my diaphragm. Felt OK. We talk about the next 4 weeks of training – it’s like the philosophy of the CHEK system is ‘less is more’ plus a change in my eating habits. And mediation. It’s like it’s a system for the whole body-mind thing. Trust me, this stuff works! Scott is coming on the London Olympians camp in April to give advice on the right core foods. Lots of stuff, so 4 weeks and I will let you all know the outcome of the next stage. You would not go wrong at all using Scott. He’s a nice lad. He does not complicate things. Well done mate see you soon.*Results may vary from person to person. London Olympians also Kalis Ilustrisimo UK also World Kubodo Federation
Coach Andy Tyler,
* think you get a better body faster by using a personal trainer than by going to the gym.
I have been working out with Scott Bryant since August this year 2004 and I can honestly say that I have gone from being a sack of potatoes, and am well on my way to the land of trim taught and hopefully terrific?
I will definitely keep up the good fight for fitness – if you want to be hot get Scott.*Results may vary from person to person.

“identified that my shoulder pain was due to my diet”
I started working with Scott at the beginning of 2012. I have a number of issues which will take some time to fix but I have already seen an improvement. my lower back pin Scott correctly identified that my shoulder pain was due to my diet – within a week of changing my diet, my shoulder pain has virtually gone. Scott is very much a no-nonsense guy, but he is also friendly, passionate about what he does, very thorough, and he really cares about getting his clients healthier and stronger. He rings me almost every day to see how I progressing with my training and lifestyle, and he is always explaining to me the way the body works and how to change my lifestyle and eating habits to gain the most from my exercise.*Results may vary from person to person.

“Scott for over a year, and I’ve noticed many changes… Other people have commented”
Linda Mitchell was initially a skeptic, believing she could only improve her fitness through exercise. well as having physical health issues, Linda was suffering from chronic knee pain. Due to the powerful, multi-faceted regime, we put her under, we dramatically improved her posture, removing most of her pain, lowering her weight and improving her muscle and skin tone at the same time. Here’s what she had to say:“I’ve been training with Scott for over a year, and I’ve noticed many changes… Other people have commented that there is something different about me. I had been experiencing quite a severe knee pain, which has completely disappeared, and my skin tone has improved.”*Results may vary from person to person.

“Scott with his expertise combine with his bowls and instruments took me to another dimension”
I had a sound healing with Scott Bryant, and I can say that it was a unique experience. Scott with his expertise combine with his bowls and instruments took me to another dimension of conscience. I left my session feeling very energized e relaxed, with the understanding that the ability to yield is a strength not a weakness, like a tree swaying in the wind… It is a state of deep inner relaxation that aligns us with our true nature and with the nature of existence. The more deeply you relax, the more you nourished by life. It leads to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. The more you let go and relax, the more at one with yourself and with a life you become. Scott Bryant is a messenger on your healing jour
“I am extremely satisfied with him. He is very friendly, professional and loves his job”
I work for a Local Authority dealing with Anti-social behavior. This is front line work and can often become very physical dealing with underprivileged youths, drug dealers, and other criminals. I am also a part-time doorman at various clubs in London, again I need to have a physical advantage over the ‘drunks’ and ‘yobs’ that plague licensed premises. I play rugby for a local team, and again need to be fit if I want to be effective. I have trained for several years having tried most programmes, gimmicks and personal trainers. Some aspects of weight training are mundane, ineffective and a total waste of money. I have used personal trainers in gyms before, but have never felt that they have given me decent results and indeed value for money.This is where Scott Bryant comes into his own. I had reached several plateaus in my training, my bench press was going nowhere, there was a certain amount of body fat that I wanted to lose and although I had no major issues with my strength, my general level of fitness wasn’t up to scratch! Scott approached me while I was training and offered to ‘spot’ me whilst I was benching. He offered some advice on foot placement, and to the grip that I was using. Whilst this didn’t create a miracle, I found the exercise slightly easier. When I finished my set, he asked me questions concerning my training goals and made a ‘promise’ that he could make me reach some of these goals within a month if I have a few personal training sessions with him! I declined but over the next couple of weeks I watched him with his other clients and decided to take him up on his offer.I booked one session with Scott and demanded that we concentrate on my bench-pressing! I found Scott to be very professional in his approach, he has a very tongue in cheek humor, which he uses to break the boredom of training and indeed to spur you on. We used various pieces of equipment and eventually concentrated on my big lift. Although I didn’t break the barrier that day, he wrote out a detailed bench-pressing programme for me to use in the coming weeks.I noticed my progress improve, so I decided to book another session to help me make the big lift. Again Scott helped me to warm up correctly, to stretch properly and work up to the big lift. I managed to lift 120kg for the first time! I was elated and immediately booked more sessions with Scott to help me overcome my training weaknesses. I was frustrated to find that most, if not all of the prime-time were booked up by his other clients. I booked a few slots that suited me and continued to use the best personal trainer I have ever come across.My name is James Donovan, and I am 12 years old. I have been training with Scott Bryant for about a year and already I have felt a dif.ference; not only in body but in mind. I have improved my academic work, and my body is getting a lot fitter. I really enjoy training with Scott, because he is a really nice guy. He changing his plans, on what we are going to do, depending on me not him. He respects the fact that I might be tired or injured. He is very reliable and never lets you down, except on the rarest of occasions, without letting you know at least 12 hours before. If he is late he rings up, and then adds the lost time at the end of the lesson.
He talks to you during your lesson and thus makes you feel safe and happy. I sometimes train with a friend, this makes it even better. But if I don’t it is still very fun. Unlike some other trainers, I enjoy training with Scott. Not only does he help you in your lessons, but he gives you information on what to eat at home. This means that you get fit and stay fit. Before I could never win any races, and then after just a few weeks of training; I won my race. Then I started getting into teams at school and I started feeling more healthy every day. This meant I had more energy for school.*Results may vary from person to person.
Scott has knowledge in a lot of different martial arts, ranging from Ikedo to Krav Maga. I am dysphasic, so is Scott, and he even helps me with that. Just shortly after training with Scott, and a lot of work revising, I got into a great new school, which I had thought that I might not get into. So Scott has changed a lot of things in my life. He has improved my health and academic work. Thus concluding: If you want to get fit and learn lots of different sports (like boxing and judo) than Scott is the most reliable and friendly trainer out there. *Results may vary from person to person.
