Mac Hines

President

Muncie native, Mac prides himself on being strong in the gym and the community too.  Mac has used fitness and nutrition to help his recovery from alcohol dependency and has never felt better.  Before Mac’s fitness journey he experienced various lows in his life.

Following Mac’s high school graduation, he developed an addiction to alcohol that would lead to a ten-day coma, a wrecked truck, and a month-long stay in critical care.

In 2015, Mac was 300lbs. and wanted a change in his lifestyle. When Mac met his close friend Nick Albertson in 2016, he also met his mentor in the weight room. With Nick’s help, Mac traded bottles for barbells.  Today Mac prides himself on three years of sobriety and 70 lbs. lost.

Mac aims to share his love of weightlifting in the community and use his story to help struggling individuals find their dopamine rush at the gym rather than the bar.

Mac’s goal is to help anyone seeking to transform their lifestyle.
