Athlete Profile – Laine

Athlete Profile: Laine

My name is Laine; I am 27 years old and married with two boys who are 5 and 2 years old.

I have been an interstate truck driver since I was 17 years old and after years of sitting down all day, quick unhealthy meals and little exercise my job began to take its toll on my body causing me to be overweight. I was struggling to do daily tasks and hitting the scales at 135kgs.

I couldn’t reach down to tie my shoe laces and that moment, in November 2014 I decided that something had to change.  I started off by going for small runs in the mornings and making changes to my diet. I cut out sugary drinks, fatty foods and take away.

I joined a gym and started going every day for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. After a year and a half I was down to 85kgs and feeling good inside and out but i still wasn’t satisfied.

One day while searching for inspiration online I came across Rich Piana’s. His videos struck a chord with me. Everything he said just made sense, inspired me and sucked me in. This year I went to the Arnold Classic in Melbourne and met the man himself. He was so humble and down to earth and I decided then

man, i wanna be HUGE.

I am now working under a Prep coach Pauly Watts who has tailor made a meal plan for me that incorporates 5% nutrition products. They are the best on the market by far. They taste amazing with flavours like fruit punch, watermelon and they dissolve well but best of all they are affordable!

I believe i am a 5%er.

I have done whatever it takes to fulfil my dreams, accomplish my goals and to live the type of life i want to live. I give everything i have to all i do. I am living proof that with hard work and determination you can achieve your goals. I want to help everyone in their success. I am currently training 3 of my brothers with great success.

Keep it up guys!

I love the fitness industry, eventually i want to give up truck driving and turn this passion for fitness into a job.
