"There are a lot of really talented smart people in our industry. I have been entrenched in it for 3 decades and counting and know most of them well. That being said, I have never met anybody with the blend of scientific and practical knowledge that comes remotely close to Scott. Put simply, if I need advice, he is the first person I call."-John Meadows: IFBB Professional Bodybuilder, www.mountaindogdiet.com "Dr Scott is one of the most passionate and brightest minds I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He has helped me for numerous competitions and helped me achieve all new levels of muscle mass and conditioning, but more so taught me the how and the why, behind every decision made. He is the only PhD in the world that is a true blend of academia and in the trenches, nitty gritty work, which is why he is in my opinion one of the best coaches in the world. I will forever be thankful for what he has done for me" -Jordan Peters: NABBA Pro; www.trainedbyjp.com "There are not a lot of people in this industry that I have a lot of respect for. Dr. Scott Stevenson is an obvious exception. One of the most brilliant minds in the sport today. If he says something, listen. If he writes something, read it." -Ken "Skip" Hill: www.teamskip.net IG: intensemuscle "After been involved in the sport of bodybuilding for 25 years before I met Dr Scott Stevenson, I thought I was pretty good. I was wrong! The past 15 years training side by side with Scott I have learned a lot when it comes to execute training, diet and supplementation. He did it in a different way.....he asked me a lot of questions, he questioned me what we were doing and why? Kind of weird I thought, but it didn't take me long to realize why he did it. He wanted me to be in tune with myself, to feel, to understand, to listen to research by myself not just get my questions answered by him. The funny thing is....I do this myself now with almost all of my clients!!! They first think I'm weird too. But by doing this you realize that there is perhaps not just right and wrong in applications. There is adaptions in how to applying to clients performance and needs. You need to listen, you need to ask questions to progress. The way Dr Scott Stevenson worked with me works even in average life outside the gym. I have all my success as a bodybuilder, trainer and as a person thanks to Scott. A lot of people especially today in this media era are specialists but very few can walk their talk! Thank you Scott."Sincerely, Mike Gustavsson: Valhallaphysique@gmail.com. FB: www.facebook.com/mike.gustavsson.712 IG: valhallaphysique.
