Nisan Trotter, award winning athlete turned fitness professional, has been training clients for four years. After transforming his struggling personal training business into one of the most successful Fit Body Boot Camp locations in the United States, he’s personally impacted over 1,000 lives. Now a featured speaker at this year’s summit, Nisan daily empowers his clients to lead happier, healthier lives while continually growing his business and success.
Striving to become the ultimate “Encouragement Guru,” as he calls it, Nisan motivates and inspires his clients to achieve ultimate results, every day. He fosters a family atmosphere within his boot camp so that he can personally connect with as many people as possible.
“I love people,” he says, “My heart searches out real connections with real people and the bonds I build with them are forever cherished. I also love entrepreneurship. Making the decision to jump into fitness full-time is one I will never forget. I loved the challenge that was presented to try to ‘make it’ on my own back then, and I love the challenge that currently exists to take this to the next level. In many ways, I don’t feel like I chose the fitness industry, I actually feel like the industry chose me!”
