Austin Hires

Crossfit Trainer, Martial Arts Enthusiast

Born 03/17/1993 in Ft. Benning, GA. Trained in BJJ for 4 years, boxing for 1 year, kickboxing for 2 years, and Muay Thai for 1 year. At the age of 19 I had my first open heart surgery due to a birth defect. Soon after I was back to training. Three years later I had to have a second open heart surgery, and this time it was different. They had to give me a mechanical valve replacement, and now I'm on blood thinners for the rest of my life. Now my dream of becoming an MMA fighter was over. Devastated I had to move on to the next dream, which was crossfit. I received my Crossfit level one at Crossfit Mayhem, and now I'm on my pursuit to become a professional Crossfitter.
