Keynote Speaker 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

Kara Kilian Lazauskas, M.S.

Born and raised in the heart of New Jersey, Kara Kilian Lazauskas grew up in a household where athletics and academics were the top priority. At the age of 3 she had her lung removed due to a tumor covering 75% of the left lung. She contests her love for human anatomy and physiology was born from that moment. With her body’s adaption and continuous push both mentally and physically, she was able to gain a scholarship to play at the NCAA level in basketball. However, 4 ACL reconstructions later in her right knee and no real basketball career left in sight, she was left wondering why me?
