Scott Helsley is a physician and a lifelong student of exercise and health. He also holds a doctorate in Pharmacology. He strives to maintain a healthy balance between family life, work and his fitness interests.
Scott’s medical practice is in Anesthesiology which, given his unique background, allows an ideal mix of pharmacology and human physiology. A solid base in physiology naturally extends to and fosters understanding of exercise and its effects on circulatory and respiratory parameters. Scott’s current position also gives him the opportunity to teach which is a privilege that he very much enjoys.
Scott lives in Fairview Pennsylvania with his wife and young son. He loves competing in kettlebell sport.
You can usually find him at the hospital, or training in his secret underground basement gym, or hanging out with his family.
