Who is Scott Herman?

Early life and career of Scott Herman

Scott grew up in a larger family as one of four siblings. He has a younger brother Matthew, a younger sister Cassaundra and an older brother George. Scott wanted to get independent as soon as possible, so he first applied for a job when he was just 14 years old. He started working at Gold's Gym in Methuen, Massachusetts. Since his supervisor approved Scott's hard work, he let him care for gym maintenance and gym memberships and let him work at the front desk.

At some point, the gym relocated to a new, more extensive position. This was good for Scott because he was named the manager of the new branch. Once he was 18 years old, he got certified as a personal trainer and started to coach new members of the gym. Since he didn't want to count on succeeding, he decided to complete his higher education at Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts. He studied Business and graduated in the same field with a bachelor's degree. In addition to that, he got licensed in financial advising and real estate.

Was Scott Herman in The Real World?

Although Scott wasn't planning to make a career as a model, he changed his mind at the end of college. His friends convinced him to compete in Iron Abs, which was a Men's Health competition. This event took time in 2007 and slightly changed Scott's motivation. Since he ranked in one of the higher positions, he began travelling around the states, looking for castings. He started to be interested in pursuing an acting career, even though he had never thought of it before. The Real World reality show was quite popular back then, leading Scott to send his audition tape, not expecting an answer. To his surprise, he received a letter congratulating him on joining The Real World house.

A lot of The Real World's contestants became famous after the show ended, including Scott. Not long after, he joined YouTube and Instagram to post the content he enjoyed the most: fitness. He started to post educational fitness videos on his YouTube channel, which gained him a lot of followers. Scott tries to make his videos easy to understand and follow. Since the gym culture became so popular, people started to get confused as to which exercises are actually helpful. Fitness influencers promoted various activities and, at the same time, complained about others. Scott used the final confusion for good by creating a series called Which Exercise Is Better. In this series, he chooses two similar exercises and compares their pros and cons. This way, his fans can decide which one they like the better.

Since no one likes working out and not seeing any results, Scott decided to help his fans with this issue. His other series is dedicated to the most common mistakes people make while working out. Their mistakes can vary from using specific gym equipment wrong to focusing on the wrong muscle group while exercising. To avoid talking only about the negatives, Scott created a series called How To, where he explains all the basic and advanced exercises. His most popular video is How To: Plank, with over 21 million views. Because of his entertaining nature and because of the good advice he gives, Scott Herman remains one of the most popular fitness influencers.
