Sid Scheck, a salesman for a financial technology company by day and a YouTuber by night, grew up in NYC and has lived in New York, Atlanta and Florida throughout his life.
Scheck recalls becoming interested in health and wellness during his young adult life. He ran the 1986 marathon in NYC at 17-years-old, moved to Atlanta to attend university, and played tennis all through college, but with sciatic pain. “I was very active as I played on the team,” Scheck said about his devotion to tennis. “I had back issues, but played through the pain.”
This pain, however, did not stop Scheck from participating in other exercise regimens either. Ignoring the pain, however, would not be sustainable.
“In 2005, I moved to Florida from Atlanta, but kept having sciatic flare-ups, and stopped playing tennis altogether,” he said matter-of-factly. “I then started getting into riding a stand-up bike called the Elliptigo, but again I had sciatic flareups.”
Scheck reveled that during the time he rode the Elliptigo, he completed three-100 milers and really enjoyed riding the bike along the ocean. “Eventually I had to sell it and realize that I had to limit myself to swimming, working out, and just trying to avoid the continued pain coming and going,” he said.
In 2017, Scheck moved back to Atlanta and found other activities to satiate his love to move his body. The goal for these activities maintained to avoid triggering sciatic pain and flare-ups. “I have been doing a lot of hiking and swimming since then,” he said. “I’ve had less back issues and flare-ups because I’m not doing the types of activities to aggravate it.”
Navigating pain and health issues can be difficult for anyone. Scheck, however, has found other ways to help himself and others. “I found myself going to YouTube to look up stuff [to help my pain] and that’s when I decided to create a channel,” he said with a smile. “I thought it would be helpful to create a channel on products and tips that people might be looking for themselves.”
Nowadays, Sid Scheck works as a salesman by day and a YouTuber by night. He began doing YouTube videos in 2009, but started his SidsTips channel focusing on product review, tips, and personal experiences in 2012. Today, SidTips tops over 11.5k subscribers.
“I love sharing what is of interest to me and what I value I can share with others,” he said.
