Scott Burgett

Shred fat, build muscle, and love yourself as a Vegan 
without feeling restricted or overwhelmed
My name is Scott Burgett. I am a vegan fat loss expert  and online coach that helps vegans shred fat, build muscle, and reclaim their confidence! 

Over the last decade, I transitioned from a personal trainer who coached professional athletes on the Seattle Mariners baseball team to coaching hundreds of vegans in transforming their body and lives. 

After going vegan cold turkey in January 2017, my path has led to coaching hundreds of vegans to help them realize their health and fitness goals. I do this because I feel it’s my duty to coach others to show the world that you can create an amazing life, eating only plants.

I got started because I felt defeated after going vegan and thinking it would lead me to the body and happiness I was seeking. I quickly realized that just because I was vegan, didn’t guarantee a free pass to an amazing body. 

During my journey, I would literally stand in front of the mirror, grab the extra fat on my belly and scream “Why can’t you just lose this fat Scott!?!”

That frustration led me on a path of self discovery and trial and error for TWO YEARS, with little results to show for it. I decided enough was enough and joined a program that coached vegans how to get shredded and what I learned changed my life forever. In a matter of 28 days, I dropped to 8% body fat and was the leanest I had ever been in my entire life. 

After that experience, I was inspired to create my program to help other vegans reach and SUSTAIN real results, without restrictive diets. That's how the Evolution Vegan Academy was born.

"What I wasn’t expecting when I actually began the academy was how quickly I would start to feel better!

I didn’t realize how much I needed having Coach Scotty on the sidelines cheering me on but also holding me accountable.

I owe my fresh start to this new decade to his guidance and encouragement!"


"Working with Coach Scotty has changed my life. He really took the time to find out what my needs were and how he could help me reach my goals. Working on mindset was the missing piece in all the other programs, something I didn't think I actually needed, but it is the thing that has made all the difference. I am stronger, happier, more confident, more focused, and back to enjoying life."


 "I decided to look for a health coach and I did speak to a few coaches but Scotty definitely took the cake on this one! He responded quickly, he was welcoming and encouraging and most of all, EXCITED to work with me, I wasn’t just another client.

Anyone else who wants to feel and look amazing on a delicious plant based diet, Scotty is your go to guy!"


"Since Day 1 of working with Coach Scotty, I've seen more success and progress in such a short amount of time than I could've hoped for. I truly believe one of the best parts of Coach Scotty's teachings are how these changes to my eating and exercise habits are sustainable and enjoyable long-term. Coach Scotty has taught me that I need to focus on my goal-setting and gratitude in order to really be successful. And that's what makes him such an incredible coach."


"Coach Scotty gave me a meal plan all the way down to the grocery list. He gave me a step by step workout routine designed for me and my individual needs and for me that meant very little cardio.

But the biggest win of all, was I got me, my life and my confidence back.
I am beyond grateful and if any vegan wants to change their life, let Coach Scotty take you through the EVA experience. You will not regret it!"


"Since I joined the EVA, I have so far lost 23.4 pounds, and my body fat percentage has gone down 5.8 points. My resting heart rate has gone down from 74 to 66. I have been able to stop two medications so far. Joining the Evolution Vegan Academy has been the best decision of my life. My health is improving, my mindset is improving, and my self-love is improving. If you have been trying to decide if the Evolution Vegan Academy is for you, take it from me, it is. You are worth it."


"I'd have to say the best part of the program is definitely the accountability and easy to follow workout and eating plans especially for someone who is always on the go like me."


"Before this, I did challenges where I lost weight and gained it back, plus more.

During these 12 weeks I lost 6% body, 12 pounds, and developed a more positive mindset!"


"I lost 11% body fat and over 20 inches! Prior to joining, I was hospitalized with for suicidal ideation and did not feel good about myself. Since completing the program, I feel like myself again and I am happy. If that sounds like you, I definitely recommended reaching out to Coach Scotty and joining the Evolution Vegan Academy."


"Prior to joining, I struggled with what to eat for weight loss as a vegan. Coach Scotty has given me the tools, plans, and support to turn my life around for the better. If you've been struggling, with something similar, I'd highly recommend chatting with him."


"Before starting the Evolution Vegan Academy, I was the heaviest I had been since high school. Since starting the program, I lost 11% body fat! If you're even considering joining the program, do it! It is on of the best decisions I've made in my life."


"Before joining, I loved to hate myself. With the help of Coach Scotty and his team I now feel fully equipped and prepared with everything to continue this journey of loving myself. If this sounds like you, and you're struggling with pure love, I recommend that you apply and join the EVA!"
