Fitness Challenge: Scott's Story
(KUTV) – Everyone has their own personal reasons of trying to lose weight. For Scott Reynolds, 39, his decision to change his life all started with his young daughter.

"My daughter wrote a note to her sister because they had gotten into an argument. She wrote, 'I'm sorry I am so fat.' And that kind of did it for me," said Scott. "Everything comes flashing through your mind. I think I reflected that on her that it was okay."

Scott decided he wanted to be a role model to his family. He tried out for the "Biggest Loser" show. He was not selected but that didn't deter him by any means. He recently attended the "Biggest Loser Camp" in St. George.

In November, Scott started this fitness challenge at Title Boxing. He admits that walking in the door wasn't easy. "I had every excuse in the book. I've got bad shoulders. I've got bad knees. So when Dash approached me on it, I gave him every excuse in the book."

The hard work paid off. Scott has lost 30 pounds and plans to keep working on his goals after the fitness challenge is over. Scott says one piece advice is to find something you like if you want to get in shape. When he is not boxing, Scott also does Crossfit.
