The ICANIWILL journey began in 2010 when CEO, Conan Visser, a then full time Personal Trainer, was approached by the parents of 13 year old Nolan.
Nolan’s parents, both doctors, were desperately seeking to help their special needs son, a victim of schoolyard and online bullying.
Nolan’s first encounter with Conan had him hiding behind his mother, eyes welling up at the thought of a physical challenge. Just 2 years later, with some mentorship from Conan, Nolan’s confidence had grown significantly and at the end of 2014 he delivered a speech to his peers at his Senior Graduation.
Nolan was our first paid employee at the beginning of 2015 and now has his license and is a qualified PT. You will now find him in front of thousands, opening up Conan’s speeches. To this day Nolan continues to improve his self confidence and is now a Mentor for ICANIWILL.
