Dr. Brett Scott
Head Coach | PT, DPT, USAW Level 1
As a competitive hockey player and olympic weightlifter himself, he also realized that many athletes were coming to physical therapy that were either misunderstood, or mistreated by other therapists due to a lack of expertise and experience in working with fitness athletes. Too many athletes have been told to just stop working out, or stop their activity, and weren’t being prescribed exercises and treatments that challenged the patients enough or solved the root cause of their problems to begin with. Therefore, Dr. Scott founded Barbell Therapy & Performance as a place where fit adults and athletes could be served with a better experience, and a better outcome by being able to not only rehab, but coach individuals back to the sports and activities that they love.
Dr. Brett Scott has had his weightlifting and powerlifting athletes medal at the national and international level in 2022.
Dr. Scott graduated summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell with his bachelors of science in exercise physiology and a minor in nutrition. He continued on in the expedited program through UMass Lowell to graduate summa cum laude with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2017.
Dr. Scott is currently a licensed doctor of physical therapy in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire and has passed all necessary requirements under the federal board regulations. He also holds specialty certifications in dry needling, cupping, spinal manipulations and adjustments, blood flow restriction training, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (also known as Graston Technique), is a certified clinical athlete provider, and is a registered olympic weightlifting coach with USA weightlifting. Amongst his passion for learning, Brett is equally passionate about educating others and frequently hosts workshops on his approach throughout new england and has had the pleasure of presenting his expertise at the university level as well.
Not only has Brett been able to compete on the national circuit in olympic weightlifting himself, but he has had the opportunity to coach multiple individuals at the national level in the sports of weightlifting and powerlifting, and possibly the international level in 2020. Brett has been able to coach many NCAA division 1 athletes and various high school athletes as well, including the national high school shot-put champion Aiden Felty.
Coach | B.S. Exercise Science, CSCS, USAW Level 1, PN1-NC
Coach | USAW Level III National Coach
Following a career path where I’m making a difference has always been important to me. I started working as a personal trainer as a means to pay for college while I was still in school. I fell in love with coaching when one of my first clients early on told me their doctor took them off of their blood pressure and cholesterol medication due to their new found fitness. That’s when I realized I could make an impact.
After working at a few different gyms over the last 10 years, I saw shortcomings in the fitness industry, and that’s when I came up with the concept and structure of Arkitect Fitness. So many people have no direction when they workout at a “regular gym,” and group fitness classes are too generic.
Owning and operating my own gym has been a challenging but rewarding experience, and I’m extremely proud of the community we’ve built and the positive change our staff has been able to create in the lives of those who choose to train with us!

Specialist in Fitness Nutrition, ISSA Certified/FMS Level 1
Always active and interested in a healthy lifestyle, I never anticipated my passion and dedication to my own health would turn into a possible career path for nutritional coaching. It wasn’t until I started a strength and conditioning program, that I desired to be a strong, fit woman. This type of training required a more mindful approach to my nutritional habits, and my interest began to grow as I began to educate myself. Peers and training partners began to seek my guidance with their nutrition, recipes, tips, etc. I found my purpose: To help others develop and achieve goals for health, body composition, and athletic performance by offering nutritional support, guidance and empowerment. I want to motivate others to be healthy, fit and confident by being an example of someone who makes her health a priority while still living a fun balanced life.
