Scott was dealt a hard hand in his youth, but after he “graduated” from foster care when he was 18, he started on the path that led him to becoming first a personal trainer and then a motivational coach and the creation of his Bend not Break program. He shares his past from an authentic and vulnerable place because he wants to help others who may have hard beginnings and don’t know how to start improving things for themselves. A turning point for him was the birth of his daughter, Lexi, who is the guiding light for his purpose in life; he wants her to see that he will never give up. I found our conversation to be very powerful and inspiring, I think you will too.
ABOUT THE GUEST
Scott spent most of his childhood in foster care. He lost his mother to alcohol addiction and his father to a broken heart a few years later. Scott always loved being active and athletic, so he began to train to be a personal trainer, but soon found he needed to do more than just PT, so he began to study more and take steps to become a motivational and life coach. His life experiences and passion for holistic fitness inspired him to create the Bend Not Break program, which enables him to take select clients through exercise and nutrition plans to help them blow through their own obstacles.
Scott lives in Belfast with his reason for being, his seven-year-old daughter, Lexi.

ABOUT THE HOST
The ‘Mighty Pete Lonton’ from the ‘Mighty 247’ company is your main host of ‘Fire in The Belly’.
Pete is an entrepreneur, mentor, coach, property Investor, and father of three beautiful girls. Pete’s background is in project management and property, but his true passion is the ‘Fire in The Belly’ project itself. His mission is to help others find their potential and become the mightiest version of themselves. Pete openly talks about losing both of his parents, suffering periods of depression, business downturn and burn-out, and ultimately his years spent not stoking ‘Fire in the Belly’. In 2017, at 37 years of age that changed, and he is now on a journey of learning, growing, accepting, and inspiring others.
Pete can connect with people and intuitively asks questions to reveal a person’s passion and discover how to live their mightiest life. The true power of ‘Fire in The Belly’ is the Q&A’s - Questions and Actions section.
The ‘Fire in The Belly’ brand and the programme is rapidly expanding into podcasts, seminars, talks, business workshops, development courses, and rapid results mentoring.
