About Scott Finkenbinder and PLU Fitness

I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer, CPR and AED Certified, Performance Enhancement Specialist, Golf Exercise Specialist, Youth Exercise Specialist and a graduate of the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY.  I began my official training career in 2011 as a Youth Athletic Performance Trainer/Home School and Early Childhood Physical Education Teacher for the YMCA in Oswego, IL.  I started coaching youth sports in 2009 and have been coaching soccer and baseball ever since.  From 2018 through 2o20 I was an Assistant boys soccer coach for the Gretna High School, responsible for the strength and conditioning of our soccer players.  During this time the Gretna High School varsity boys team made it to consecutive State Semifinals.  I have trained several Gretna Elite Academy Soccer Club (GEA) teams for Performance training, including state champions 2004 boys (2018 and 2019), 2005 boys (2018) and the top 2006 girls.   I hold my US Soccer Federation Class E license and have coached a 2008B team for GEA.  I currently volunteer coach a 13u boys baseball team for Elkhorn Athletic Association(EAA).  

In October 2015, I obtained my NASM Personal Trainer Certificate.  Also in 2015, I was featured as a top 100 participant in the Men's Health Magazine's Ultimate Guy Search!

Prior to becoming a personal trainer I was a New York State Certified Public Accountant and spent thirteen years in public and private accounting in roles of increasing complexity and scope.  As a family, we've lived in New York, Illinois and here in Omaha.  In Omaha, I worked as a Controller for a residential real estate firm. 

I started PLU Fitness to work with my clients on improving their total health and wellness.  I enjoy helping my clients achieve their goals and seeing the impact this improvement can have on them - mentally, physically and emotionally.  I truly love encouraging adults and kids to achieve goals they never thought they could, watching them increase their confidence and seeing the results of their hard work and dedication.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals . . . it's your fitness - redefined!!
