#StartingUpPA Alumni Spotlight

Nisan Trotter  |  Owner, TROTFITNESS  |  Bucknell ‘05

Nisan Trotter (Bucknell ‘05) and his wife Yorelis are leaders in their local community as co-founders of TROTFITNESS, the Susquehanna Valley’s leading fitness boot camp. In its third year of operation, the business continues to grow and diversify, now offering nutritional and wellness counseling, as well as personal training and dance fitness classes.

Even during his academic career, Trotter was a leader.  As the head receiver on Bucknell’s football team, he was recognized with the C. Dale Wolfe Award as the team’s most inspirational player. While his extracurricular activities honed his leadership qualities, his BSBA in Management with a minor in Economics prepared him for the business world. 

Trotter attributes Professor Tammy Hiller and MGMT 101, an innovative, experiential, project-based course where students create and manage their own companies, as first kindling his entrepreneurial fire.  Later, while starting his own business, he received business planning assistance from Bucknell’s Small Business Development Center and connected with students in the Markets, Innovation, and Design program who helped him develop his marketing strategy.
