As the CEO and face of SHF, my life revolves around health and fitness as well as the daily tasks of running a business and generating new ideas to grow the business. When I am not filming routines or editing videos I enjoy going out to the movies and traveling with my girlfriend Erica, driving my beast of a Camaro I call Jane, pwning noobs (especially my younger brothers) on Super Smash Bros., Call Of Duty and God Of War as well as watching all kinds of ANIME. I love what I do and I have worked extremely hard my entire life so I would never have a “job”. I have been lucky enough to be blessed with an amazing family and a handful of super close friends and my ultimate goal is to continue to be successful and inspire others to be the best they can be.

All the men in my family are “Jacks-Of-All-Trades”. Growing up my Dad made sure my brothers and I knew how to do a bit of everything. I knew that to being a Herman meant I needed to be a hard worker and if I were to do any job I was expected to do it right the first time. This mentality helped shape and mold me into a young entrepreneur. I began mowing lawns in my neighborhood when I was twelve for spending money. By the time I was fourteen I was working in a maintenance position at a local Gold’s Gym. My duties were to ensure that all the equipment was cleaned each week. The owner took a quick liking to my hard work and enthusiastic attitude. I taught myself how to repair broken down equipment and by the time I was fifteen I was running the front desk, making protein shakes, and signing up new members.

The gym was always priority number one, but I had a few side projects. When I was sixteen my best friend Joe and I started our own DJ business called Galaxy DJ’s and we earning close to $1500 a month. We even DJed our own sophomore and junior proms. When it was time to go to college I had transitioned from my position as maintenance manager to a personal trainer. I was still DJing on the side and even found the time to get my real estate license. At this age I began to start fitness modeling as well and was featured several times in Men’s Health Magazine. However, as my college graduation neared I had condensed all my interests and side professions to only a few things; running a high end gym, fitness modeling and a dream to revolutionize the Fitness industry.

The dream of ScottHermanFitness, LLC was born in 2007. My idea was to teach fitness to the world in a way that was easy to understand and FREE. But there was one problem; the world had no idea who I was. Then, as fate would have it a few short months later I found myself on my way to Brooklyn, NY to film the 21st season of The Real World as one of the 8 cast members. This was the opportunity I needed to finally figure out the equation of how I could do what I love but on a much larger platform. The rest is history.

My journey into fitness began when I was twelve. I was a quiet as a kid and constantly picked on by my older brother and his friends. I found comfort in the solitude of my basement surrounded by nothing but my music and my Dad’s old weight set. When I was fourteen one of my friends on the wrestling team asked me if I wanted to work with him at a local gym on the weekend for a free membership. Having started to outgrow my basement gym, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to earn a free membership.

From that point on I was hooked. As I got older and learned more about fitness the need to want to share my knowledge and help others grew as well. When I turned eighteen I became a certified personal trainer. I love helping people; it is what I was meant to do. When I finished my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management I transitioned form fulltime trainer to General Manager of the club I was working in called “Answer Is Fitness”. It was at Answer Is Fitness that I realized my true potential and started ScottHermanFitness, LLC. It began as a way for me to help members for FREE to learn how to use the equipment in the gym if they couldn’t afford a training. Now we are a global business helping more people than I ever thought possible. I am very thankful for not only the opportunity to run a successful business, but to have the opportunity to help complete strangers on the other side of the world.

    "The only thing keeping me going is not stopping."

I am currently working at Scott Herman Fitness as an administrator and social media manager. I love learning about the fitness industry from Scott and Sean as well as the varying methods of training and the role of nutrition in fitness! I am also a licensed hairdresser in Massachusetts. I work for a salon in Brookline, MA three days a week, named Crew International. I have been doing hair for 32 years and am still very passionate about the creative process. I have been an instructor at this salon, teaching color and cutting techniques for much of the 22 years I have worked there. Many of my interns under my tutelage have gone on to reach great success in their Hairdressing careers! Something I take great pride in knowing, in some small part, I helped to nurture. I have a busy social life and a large family, which keep me quite busy when I am not either at the salon or in the SHF Studio working with Scott.

I studied Commercial & Fine Arts for 4 years at a Vocational School in Franklin MA, before attending the Fine Arts program at Boston University for one year. I decided that I wanted to follow another path after recognizing that I didn’t enjoy painting what other people wanted me to paint. I went on to Cosmetology School at the Blaine Hair School in Boston, MA and graduated with the highest grade of my class in 1980. I have been able to utilize all the skills I learned in my Fine Arts programs to best meet the needs and desires of my clients from composition, anatomy, coloring, and sculpting their hair to suit their personalities.

What brought me to work with Scott is a funny story. After joining a gym in North Attleboro, MA near where I live, I was exercising on the Abs machine, when a trainer named Scott Herman walked over to me and said, “Are you trying to hurt yourself?” He then proceeded to explain to me that the position that I had the seat in and the amount of weight that I was using were going to cause me injury. Needless to say, I signed up to have Scott as my personal trainer. He developed a great program and trained me for about 6 months to get me in the best shape of my life! One day after we finished training, he asked me if I could help him take exercise photographs for the newly developed SHF website. Having an artistic eye, I agreed to help and soon found that I had some skills with the camera after all. From there, we continued working together shooting exercise photos and later filming full-length routines. I also went on to create the SHF logo that is still used to this day. As the company grew, Scott taught me how to monitor membership accounts and groomed me to become his social media manager. I have now learned much about fitness and nutrition and help Scott with research and concepts for keeping the content of the SHF website, Facebook Community Page and YouTube Channel current and factual.

I believe that all the life experiences that I have encountered throughout my 51 years have made me the person I am today. I am a man who gave up a lifestyle of drinking, using recreational drugs and smoking cigarettes and learned along the way that I was using those things as a form of escape. I got into a 12 step program and adopted a healthier way of looking at life and dealing with life on life’s terms. I found happiness and an abundance of energy in my new way of living and have developed meaningful and lasting relationships with people of great substance. I also learned about how a grateful heart can bring a man to a level of self-esteem and self-worth that I previously had lost sight of! People like Scott saw the good in me and helped to transform me from someone who dealt with their depression in an adverse manner to someone who stared fear in the eye and take control of my own destiny. I have wonderfully supportive family and friends and was with my husband for 26 years until he passed away in 2012 from Cancer. Tom was my rock and I know that many of the traits that I am blessed with are because of the way he encouraged me to be the best man I could be. I am a better person because of my relationship with him!

I got into fitness after getting into a recovery program for alcohol and drug abuse. The program helped me clean my mental state of mind and spiritual side. Once I had those two areas under control, I decided to then get busy on the physical aspect! I joined a gym and if you read the story above, the rest was history!

    "Life is not measured by the amount of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away!"

I work with Scott Herman Fitness as the lead web designer and programmer. Learning about fitness has always inspired me to live a healther life style.

Besides working with Scott Herman, I also work for a local company in town as their insulation specialist. I've been working at the company for about 8 years now. I enjoy the job, however, my dream is to start my own web company.

Jerrod is passionate about acquiring new skills and ideas about the Web. While developing his own company, DavenDesigns, he has created several websites for small and large businesses. The company builds and maintains websites with a unique touch. DavenDesigns specializes capturing the uniqueness of small businesses & representing them online.

It was his passion for new skills and ideas, which lead him to meet Scott Herman. Scott, while starting his business from scratch, needed someone willing to join his team and muscle through what can be a lengthy start-up process. Scott shared his vision with Jerrod and he was hooked. After almost 3 years, Jerrod is excited to see what Scott Herman Fitness (SHF) has become. Jerrod enjoys talking to people about SHF and believes SHF is a strong online support system. He knows everyone can reach their goals and SHF is there to help.

Today, in uncertain economic times, he spends most of his time working on SHF and manages an insulation department for a local company. During the weekends he spends time working for another shop. Even though he finds it difficult, most nights are spent working to build his own company and working for SHF. His future plans are to manage SHF full time and build his company large enough to employ others and build websites for other companies as well.

Even with everything he has going on, Jerrod makes sure he has the time to be a good father to his 2 beautiful children and a great husband to his amazing wife. When he is not spending time with his family or working, Jerrod enjoys reading and playing poker.

    "I don't know everything, but I know something about everything."

I am originally from Brazil and I am a Chemical Engineer by training. I work as an engineer for the best yogurt in the world: Yoplait! I love what I do but I also have a personal passion: fitness. When I am not working as an engineer, my time is dedicated to my family and SHF. In a just a few years, I have seen this community grow so much and I am so proud to be part of it!

My role at SHF is all about strategy. In order to grow as a business and ensure that we are providing the absolute best to our community, we have to strategize and plan extensively. Everything we do is carefully thought out in advance, from video topics and release schedule, to website development, affiliations, fitness research, data analysis and much more!

I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I had a great childhood with an amazing loving family who taught me to be determined and a hard worker. I always excelled in school and I knew I wanted to have a career in Science. I managed to have tons of fun but school and career always came first.

I love my Latin culture because it has made me who I am today. We are friendly, fun loving, but most important of all, we are kind to others. Growing up surrounded by poverty has made me appreciate the small things in life and made me want to be good and do good for others.

I came to the US to go to college and once I graduated from the University of Florida, I loved the country so much, that I decided to stay. I have traveled and lived all over the US and I am eternally grateful to this country for accepting me with open arms.

Being from Brazil, I was raised in warm weather in the midst of bikinis and speedos! :) Being healthy and fit is a huge part of my culture and I have been active for as long as I can remember. For me, fitness is not a choice anymore, it is a natural part of my life. I believe that our body is our most precious asset and we need to treat it as such. With my background in Science and Chemistry, I really enjoy researching and learning about fitness and the human body. It is amazing what the body can do if it is challenged and nourished properly!

    “Don’t Give Up What You Want Most For What You Want Now”

I grew up in Salem, NH with my younger brother Scott. I was always more interested in cars when Scott was busy in the basement lifting weights. I have a 1988 Camaro that I have been rebuilding since high school. Cars are my passion and I wish I could work on them every day. Currently I am an electrician for systems contracting. I really enjoy my job and I am happy that I also have the time to help out with SHF.

I’m the oldest of four brothers and two sisters. Being a big brother really helped me gain the patience and understanding I needed to become a mature adult. Scott had asked me if I could help him with SHF as the business is constantly growing. I believe that you should always help out your family if you can and so since he had asked me to help out I have been managing the SHF store and shipping all the orders. I think it is really cool to see that SHF reaches countries I have never even heard of and hope I can always be there when my brother needs me.

Although I am naturally skinny with muscle tone, I do not work out. Scott had tried to get me into the gym before but it just isn’t my thing. I stay in shape by keeping myself busy around the house. Maybe one day I will let Scott convince me to workout regularly in his studio, but for now, I will stick to the store orders.

    "Giggidy"

I was born in Casablanca, Morocco.

My biography is like a movie story. My name is Wassim Ridwani and I was born in Casablanca, Morocco and this is the story:

I was a bad little child when I was 7 years I always had a lot of fight with many people. I was brilliant at school with a high degree in all my exams but even that I was so crazy I painted on my school wall & tables & chairs. It was my passion to do that & I have another passion is graffiti from there all my friend advised me to take an art lesson but I didn't care that time but after my college I decided to be designer. Then I was looking for an art school & I found it. There I meet my best friend now Soufiane Fayssal and he was the cause to meet Scott Herman because he showed me his fan page on facebook & he encourage me to make a great effort to be the best & he helped me to make a lot of stuff even to know it without him I couldn't make all that. So Soufiane showed me Scott fan page & I took a look to his wall & I saw that he was need to same crazy stuff so I made him a poster to his profile with his own picture & it was a pleasure for him because it was fascinated by my work and he proposed me to work with him & to make him all his entertainment stuff ( YouTube channel - posters - banners - website - car etc.) and now we do a great job together & we hope to make the best to become number one in the world so thank you Scott for this opportunity & thank you Soufiane to pushing me to be the best. This is my small crazy story
