Colin Wayne was born and raised in ‘Rocket City’, Huntsville, Alabama (USA). Colin had always thrived in sport, taking part in football, baseball, basketball, and soccer during high school. However, although he was athletic, Colin was a small child – this was what motivated him to get fitter and stronger in the gym. After graduating from high school in 2006, at the age of 17, Colin decided to enlist in the Alabama Army National Guard. It wasn’t long until he began his military training. He spent the next 22 weeks completing his basic training, successfully becoming a solider in the U.S army. At the age of 19, in 2008, he was deployed to Cairo (Egypt) to participate in military activity. After seeing his fitness levels rise in the army, Colin decided to begin lifting weights in the gym in 2009. At the age of 20, he’d embarked on his fitness journey. That same year (2009), Colin was deployed to Iraq where he spent 3 years fighting for his country. In 2012, at 23-years-old, he was sent to Afghanistan and promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant. However, he was hit by shrapnel from a rocket blast during his time in Afghanistan, and was rushed to hospital. A week later, Colin received news that he would be sent back to America, and was honorably discharged from military service. During his 6 years in the army, Colin had fallen in love with fitness. He’d lifted weights in his spare time, aiming to reach the same size as the bigger soldiers in Afghanistan. It was this passion that led him to pursue a career as a fitness model in 2012. Colin didn’t waste any time – he approached numerous magazines, launching various social media profiles after recovering from his injuries and returning to the gym. Over the next 4 years, he worked rigorously to develop his physique and find success as a model. Eventually, his hard work paid off. By 2016, Colin had become recognized for his shredded figure, after featuring on the covers of international fitness magazines. It was this exposure that resulted in gaining millions of fans online – he began inspiring fans around the world to lead a healthy lifestyle and realize their dreams. By 27-years-old, Colin had become a social media sensation and fitness icon.
