    A new passion and lease on life with Scott Switzer, the Clydesdale CrossFitter

    A new passion and lease on life with Scott Switzer, the Clydesdale CrossFitter

    Scott Switzer isn’t your average fitness buff. He discovered CrossFit late in life thanks to a health scare and a healthy dose of fate, and transformed his life. But the transformation was more than physical. His soul was forever changed. Now he’s paying it forward. He’s a husband and father, a dedicated athlete, a coach, a staple as a volunteer at CrossFit competitions small and large around the country, co-host of 2 fitness podcasts, and working on more ventures in the space that have the potential to allow him to make a shift in his career to be all-fitness, all the time.
