Trent Shelton is a man with a message who desires to promote positive change in others. He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. At the age of 5, Trent Shelton dreamed of one day becoming a professional football player. After graduating from high school he then attended Baylor University where he continued his football career. In 2007, he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts; in 2008, the Seattle Seahawks; and 2009, the Washington Redskins. After achieving his childhood dream Trent still felt incomplete due to a shaky football career with the NFL. Trent found himself chasing worldly things to temporarily fill the voids in his life and it took the birth of his son and life's adversity to realize it was time to become a better man.
"If you want a better world, create at better you." -- Trent Shelton
In 2009, Trent decided to pick up his iPhone and do his first video and began to share his thoughts with the world. He used his videos as a tool to share his journey and a way to hold himself accountable. At the end of every video he would end it with, "It's Rehab Time." After his first post he had a few likes, then a few turned into hundreds, and hundreds turned into thousands. Trent soon gave his followers the name "Rehabbers." Now he reaches over 35 million people weekly. Trent has over 3 million Facebook Fans, 350k Instagram followers, over 200k twitter followers, and his audience continues to grow daily. As he tours all over the world, he spreads his inspirational message and reminds them that there is hope for a brighter future and there is nothing impossible when you believe.
"While loving yourself do not forget to love others." --Trent Shelton
Trent is using his life journey to inspire people all over the globe and has proven that when one sets his mind to change, not only can he transform his own life, but along the way you can inspire others to transform their lives as well. Trent has now made his two-minute Rehab Time videos a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes change, motivates, uplifts, and encourages rehabbers across the country. Trent is a best-selling author of three self-help books, and he has a fourth self-help journal titled, "It All Starts with You" which is set to release this coming spring of 2015. Speaking of new releases he also has a series coming soon, titled "Colorblind," that speaks on looking beyond the cover and loving everyone for who they are.

"It was walking away from my everything, that thing that had my identity. That thing I thought my life would be lost without, just to show me that God had something better." -- Trent Shelton
When asked what inspires you, Trent stated that his 6-year-old son is his inspiration and his accountability. And with such a large following you would assume one would consider himself a celebrity, not Trent Shelton; he says, "All glory belongs to God, I never started this journey for the number of followers. My goal is to keep being a bridge for change and reach more lives."
