Scott joined his first gym at the age of 15. Enlisted in the Army at age 17 and served for the next 21 years all around our great country and the world. Scott is a returned veteran seeing operational service in Iraq and Sinai.

He retired in 2010 and took up employment with the Australian Paralympic Committee as the Senior Coach Powerlifting and worked across other programs including Wheelchair Rugby , Basketball and Ambulant Rowing. Scott has coached at the highest level Paralympic Games, World Championships and Commonwealth Games. All of Scott’s athletes have tasted success ranging from Paralympic Gold, World Championships or the opportunity to represent their country. (See Testimonials Page)

Scott also has had success as a strength athlete competing internationally and nationally in a number of sports powersports, powerlifting, strongman and bodybuilding. He has experienced the highs and lows achieving a World Championship in Powersports also “Bombing Out” (no result recorded) at Oceania Championships.

As a coach his philosophy is “round peg , square hole” finding solutions and making them fit for everyone he works with. As an athlete his mindset is “if it was easy everyone would be doing it”

Due to a cut in Government funding Scott was made redundant in Aug 2014. He is currently contracted by the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee working as the Head Coach Powerliftng. He still volunteers his time to work with a number of athletes in the Australian Paralympic Powerlifting program helping them work towards their dreams of Gold Coast 2018 and Tokyo 2020.

His dream has always been to open his own gym – Primal Health Club will be that and more. Community focused, it will offer up the opportunity for all members of the community to be part of the journey supporting everyone in their health and fitness goals whether it’s representing their school, our country or just general wellbeing.

Nickyla Marso

Recently stayed for a few days in Benalla and just needed to keep up with our fitness journey, so my husband and I visited Primal three days in a row, each during for their open gym time. The space is large, bright and welcoming and the facilities and equipment are top notch- lots of bikes, treadmills, elypticals, weight machines, ergs (bike, row and ski), free weights (with Oly lifting platforms), kettlebells and so, so much more! Thanks for having us.
