Beast: Tell us a little bit about your sports background?

Matt Scott: I am a 3 time Paralympian and soon to be 4th when they officially announce the team this summer.

Beast: Tell us, how are you preparing for Rio?

Matt Scott: By working my ass off! There is no substitute for hardwork.  Both mentally and physically training harder than I have ever trained before. 

Beast: How has Beast helped you in preparation? 

Matt Scott: The Beast family has been a tremendous support system and the Sensor helps motivate me in the gym to be a stronger athlete. 

Beast: What is your favorite feature of the Beast Sensor? 

Matt Scott: My favorite feature of the Beast Sensor is how versatile it is by being magnetic. You can place the Sensor in many places to get the optimal result. The vest and wrist band are also great features that allow the sensor to be most versatile

Beast: Thanks for your time Matt, good luck this weekend and all Summer on the Road to Rio!
