Hi, my name is Jay Scott – I’m a 35 year old guy who has worked in the Fitness Industry for the last 15 years. I am very happy that I found my passion early in life; and that I am able to make a living from it.
I’m not blessed with unbelievable genetics, I don’t have a super metabolism, and I’m far from the strongest guy on earth. What I do have is a love for fitness, a willingness to “mess up” then immediately try again, and a great group of supportive friends and family.
What is even better is that my line of work allows me the time to make new friends across the Internet (many of whom have been on the show).
I used to be the small but chubby kid in school. I’m not going to say I was traumatized by that – but it did inspire me to look into the “in and outs” of getting a better body when I reached the age of 19. So, I got my Personal Training Certification through the ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) and was off to the races with fitness before I was 20.
I went to college for a few years (I was in the Dietetics Program) but just it just didn’t feel right. I wanted to be a personal trainer and help people achieve their fitness goals. Finally I worked up the courage and quit school to start a personal training business.
Needless to say, after a few years of struggle the business took off in a big way. I began to help a lot of people locally and wrote my first book Live Fit Live Free, in 2011. I loved being known locally, but felt I was limited by my boundaries. I wanted to learn from the best in the fitness industry – the best in the world – and in order to do that I needed the proper format.
The Full Disclosure Fitness Podcast
After attending a fitness seminar in Kansas City an idea hit me. I recognized that there was indeed medium out there that would not only allow me to learn from the top fitness experts in the field – but would allow the whole world to listen in as well. That medium was Internet Radio, also known as a Podcast.
The Full Disclosure Fitness Intention
With this website (and podcast/videos as well), I want to be as transparent as possible with everything I promote and discuss online. I’m not trying to show off, I’m not trying to endorse things I don’t think have merit, and I’m not trying to make anyone angry. What I’m trying to do is give everyone the truth as I see it. If I say it on the show, then that is what I truly believe.
Let’s be honest – I’ve used just about every “diet” out there – and many of them were grandiose failures. I’ve also battled eating disorders (both anorexia on a small scale and binging on a large scale). With this Podcast I want to pull back the curtain on all of the nutrition and exercise programs out there and show them for what they are (be that good or bad). I want to help you end the confusion and find what works for you. I hope that my experiences – both my successes and my failures – can help you achieve your goals.
Yes, really the Full Disclosure Fitness Website is a blog. There will be articles, podcasts, and videos on here to help you in your fitness education. I think there is a great value in having every medium – podcasts, videos, and blogs – so that everyone (visual learners, audio learners, and those that prefer reading) will have something that they enjoy on the site.

Finally, Please Read This Carefully
I am not a Nutritionist, a Sports Scientist, or a Psychologist. I’m a Personal Trainer (and regular dude) who has spent the last 15 years educating himself about the Fitness Industry. If anything, I am a Fitness Enthusiast.
Honestly you can learn any of this stuff Online somewhere – that’s for certain. What I’m trying to do with this site is put as much quality fitness information as possible all in one place and simplify it. Too much knowledge in a haphazard and overloading way is worse than not enough knowledge. I want this site to be the opposite of overwhelm, I want it to be simple and easily applied to your life.
Finally, this site is for you – and my feelings aren’t easily hurt. If you see something that you think would improve the podcast, videos, or blogs – please tell me. I am here for you – and I’m doing this whole thing for you. This is my way of paying forward the amazing things that have happened to me over the last few years.
Please comment at the bottom of the blogs and Podcasts, and feel free to use the Contact Form at the top of the page to get in touch with me. I promise I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
