Lifelong athlete Scott Umberger's love for fitness developed while he was working toward a Division I scholarship to Robert Morris University, where he competed in track and football. After going on to train award-winning and Olympic athletes, he decided to open his own gym, and paired up with Pepsi Hutton. Pepsi relies heavily on fitness to feel good as she battles cystic fibrosis, which ultimately led her to become an AFAA-certified personal trainer and kinesiology professor to help others learn how to feel good. Together at Fusion Workouts, they helm a team of certified trainers who strive to help clients of all abilities reach their fitness goals at their own pace.
With a functional approach to fitness, they draw from boot-camp classes, personal-training sessions, and circuit training to develop their ever-changing total-body workouts. They motivate their charges to slim their waistlines and boost their strength by swinging kettlebells, hurling sandbags, and flipping tires end over end until they agree to go back and chase their true passion—life on the road. Taking into account each client's health and fitness history, they customize each exercise to accommodate beginners, seasoned athletes, and new mothers alike.
