Born into a military family, Layne was born in Italy and lived in several areas across the world growing up, including Korea, Panama, and Germany. He was active in many sports throughout his childhood, and began running track in high school, which he would continue into college at The Citadel. Layne has an impressive 22 years of full-time coaching experience, where he was able to see first-hand the benefits of anti-gravity treadmills. Seeing these benefits as well as having connections through the athletic world, Layne saw a great opportunity and joined the Boost team. His ultimate goal for the company is to create public awareness about the benefits of Boost treadmills, as well as connect with people and build lasting relationships with both co-workers and customers. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, being involved in the lives of his 2 boys, working out, and being outdoors.
