About Nick Scott

Founder/President and CEO for the IFBB Pro-Wheel Chair Bodybuilding Inc;

At the age of 16, Nick Scott was an ordinary teenager with an interest in athletics, when a near fatal traffic accident changed life as he knew it… forever. After the accident Nick became overweight and discouraged, but somehow found the determination, mindset and personal strength to transform his life from a debilitating tragedy into a personal triumph. Now he uses those hard-won insights to help others awaken the beast within themselves and achieve their personal goals.
“What’s the one thing you gain when you lose everything? PERSPECTIVE!” -Nick Scott
Keynote Topic:  Never Give Up

Description: Individuals with disabilities often see no reason to try any new programs that promise the same results as all the other programs. Giving up their hopes and dreams because they are confined to a wheelchair or unable to meet the challenges presented. Courage comes hard to people with disabilities when no one shows them the way to success.

Patients become despondent when faced with life changing accidents or illnesses. A lifetime with a disability seems like the end to some who may never walk, see or hear again. Hearts are heavy in these situations, especially if children are involved. However, no one can give up. There are no excuses for not trying and one man, better than any other, will tell both staff and patients how to achieve and maintain the dreams they think are out of reach. The journey begins by discovering the fire that burns inside every person in a hospital bed or those who heal the bed ridden.
