ABOUT Nilan and Surrendered Strength

Bringing Purpose to Training and Life! 

From growing up on a dairy farm in Iowa there are number of lessons I learned that I have carried over into every aspect of my life.


  1. Strength isn’t an option, it’s a necessity in life.

  2. Take care of your yourself, family, friends, neighbors and the world around you.

  3. From work to play, have a purpose.


From farm kid to an athlete at the high school and college level, to coaching athletes, young adults and senior citizens; and now as a husband and father, I have learned those three lesson are paramount to life and training.


My name is Nilan Lansing. Through my years of growing up on a farm, strength training and coaching, I have learned, anyone can be strong. Furthermore, everyone should be physically strong and feel as though you have a purpose in life.


Training my body for sports is how I became interested in strength. Through my training I realized there was a mental component to being strong, and better at sports and life.


Only after my years of playing sports did I finally realize something was missing, spiritual strength.


Spiritual strength brought purpose to my training, coaching and life. Defining your purpose can transform your life to a life of health, abundance, meaning and joy.


Now, it is my mission, through Surrendered Strength, to help you discover your purpose and experience life with abundance, through strength of your body, mind and spirit!


I am a husband to my beautiful wife, Victoria. A father of three, Reese and Jude, & Benjamin so I understand time is limited and life is busy, which is OK! There is no need to spend hours training every day, you don’t even need a gym membership.


But you need to know, a life of abundance and joy is available for you!


Through strengthening your body, your mind to think clearly and trusting the spirit of God; I have found everyone can live a life of joy and abundance.


From my family to yours, may God’s Strength be your strength!
