Here is Scott's bio:

 

After getting fit and finding his passion in life after 13 year career in Architecture that had him overweight, sick and stressed,  Scott McDermott built a 15,000 square foot gym; Best Body Fitness in 2002.  Scott wrote a book about health and fitness called “If Your Body Were a Car, You Wouldn’t Treat it This Way”, as well as a fitness journal and a recipe book.  Since getting back in shape, Scott has enjoyed an amazing journey and after deciding to try out the Sylvan Lake Half Ironman Triathlon to see if he could finish it, he qualified for Ironman Canada.  Within a few years he was representing Canada at the World Championships in Holland and Australia as well as racing all over Canada and the USA.  4 Ironmans and 2 long course world championships later, Scott decided to attempt a triathlon 2.5 times longer than Ironman, called Ultraman.  At the 2011 Canadian Ultraman Championships, he crossed the line in 6th place overall, only 20 minutes form 2nd in a 3 day race spanning 520kms.  He has since completed the Ultraman World Championships several times, including a 21st overall  finish in 2013.  He has ridden a bike 400 kms in one day for Cancer research several times, ridden a mountain bike 700kms to Montana along the great continental divide, and completed every Spartan Distance including an Ultra Beast (a 50km run on a ski hill full of obstacles) in addition to ultra marathons and a total of 7 Ironmans, plus too many Half Ironmans to count.  In November 2015 Scott was racing at the Ultraman World Championships again and crashed his bike at close to 70 kilometers per hour, breaking many bones including his shoulder, arm, ribs and skull.   It nearly cost him his life.  He has made a remarkable full recovery and raced again 3 years later in November 2018, placing 25th in the world while filming the process for an award winning documentary; “Living the Warrior’s Code”.

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 BBF Sprint Triathlon, Zombie Run, Father’s Day Run, 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 his long time passion of being a professional speaker and working to get his documentary out on streaming to the world, as well as writing a book about the experience.

 
We'll be doing these LIVE shows now on a weekly basis to support YOU, the parent, so thanks for being a part of this!!

Ep2 - Understanding Grief and Loss in Teens

Ep2 - Understanding Grief and Loss in Teens

February 8, 2021

In this episode we have the hard conversation of grief and loss when it comes to our teens.  Your hosts, Beau Blouin and Forrest Folen, interview Elta Ampadu, and we discover more on the topic of loss than we ever thought we could. 

For parents to be able to support their teens and young adults during periods of loss or grief, we need to build awareness around the issue.  When we talk about the mindset of success for teens, it really goes hand-in-hand with dealing for life's traumas and hardships.

Whether it's the loss of a loved one such as a friend or family member, a death of a pet, or even the loss that comes with moving to another school, or moving on from a bad relationship, there's always hurt, pain, suffering, and trauma.  

In this podcast, Elta Ampadu helps us navigate this difficult terrain and we discover that it is manageable.  We can learn to heal and move forward in a healthy way.  Please share this podcast with a friend or family member to let them know you care and that they are not alone.
