Austin Lee Gayne
Status: Fitness Model
My name is Austin Lee Gayne. As a kid, I grew up with my mom, lacking a dad. Life was great, but when I was 10 years old, my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer. From then on, I went to food as a comfort, eating as much as I could to satisfy my depression.With prayer, my mom survived and the cancer was gone, however, my high intake of fast food didn't stop. I was constantly bullied and had a very low self-esteem. I was depressed and continued to go to food as a comfort. But then in 8th grade, I was introduced to cross country running and I knew it was my way out of the depression I was in. I did that for about a year losing around 20lbs and finally being skinny! From then I went to compete in Mixed Martial Arts for about 2 years and maintained my 170 weight. But March, 2012, I was on YouTube and came
across Greg Plitt videos, once I saw his mindset and his physique, I knew exactly what I wanted to be, a fitness model! From March till present, I learned all my lifting, diet and everything from self-teaching. I learned the only way I was going to get anywhere was with hard work and dedication.
