Darryl Payne, Jr. is a successful Track & Field athlete with a career that began at the age of 8 years old. Early on, an affinity to the sport became very apparent when records were being set and broken. Progressions through the years to his high school career have proven to be extremely successful in setting and currently maintaining the school record in the 300m hurdles, as well as maintaining multiple other stadium records and a Louisiana regional record. Following high school, training began under the revolutionary coach Clyde Hart at Baylor University and alongside Track & Field athletes such as Jeremy Wariner, Reggie Witherspoon and Sanya Richards-Ross.
Currently, training for the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan, Darryl is excited to be a personal trainer in the growth-encouraging environment that Austin Simply Fit fosters. Personally, it satiates the desire to serve and he seeks to deliver a powerful message on the bounds of human limitations.
