Speaker: Scott McDermott
Scott McDermott built the15,000 square foot fitness centre, Best Body Fitness in 2002 after getting fit and finding his passion in life following a 13 year career in Architecture that had him overweight, sick and stressed. Since getting back in shape, Scott has enjoyed an amazing journey. After deciding to try out the Sylvan Lake Half Ironman Triathlon, he qualified for Ironman Canada and within a few years, was representing Canada at the World Championships in Holland and Australia as well as racing all over Canada and the USA. In 2011 Scott decided to attempt a triathlon 2.5 times longer than Ironman, called Ultraman. At the Canadian Ultraman Championships, he crossed the line in 6th place overall. He has since completed the Ultraman World Championships 21st overall in 2013, ridden a bike 400 kms in one day, rode a mountain bike 700kms to Montana along the great divide, completed every Spartan Distance including an Ultra Beast (a full marathon on a ski hill full of obstacles) In November 2015 Scott was racing at the Ultraman World Championships again and crashed his bike at close to 70 kilometers per hour, and nearly cost him his life. He has made a remarkable full recovery and raced again November, 2018, placing 25th in the world. Scott is very active in Rotary, serving on 3 missions to deliver wheelchairs and has been President as well as Rotarian of the Year. Scott has been awarded Sylvan Lake’s Citizen of the Year twice and Business of the Year Twice as well. He hosts the Annual Terry Fox Run, and has organized the the BBF Sprint Triathlon, Zombie Run, Father’s Day Run, and the Sylvan Lake Half Ironman, Amazing Race Sylvan Lake and more. Having shut down Best Body Fitness in March of 2020 forever, Scott is now focused on being a motivational speaker and working to get his documentary out on streaming to the world, as well as writing a book about the experience.
