Meet: Tanner Wayne
The only thing I can think of is I'M COLOR BLIND. Don’t ask me to test this! Haha
My motivation stays consistent. The main objective for my exercise is to shed the extra mental energy I have everyday, so the drive I have to work out 6 days a week is strictly for my mental health. I also need to keep in shape for tour, so it’s not to difficult to be inspired.
What is the best thing that has happened to you as a result of prioritizing your health?
I think it’s just coming to the realization that it’s the most important thing. Health is wealth. If I keep on my consistent path of health, my mental and physical health will always improve and touring will become easier physically.
If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?
I think about this all the time actually. I just wish I discovered how important consistent exercise was when I was younger.

How do you fit exercise into your schedule?
During COVID, I’ve been lucky to have some weights at the house. I don’t have too much to do these days, so fitting in a workout is super easy. I just make sure I’m awake enough and stretched out so I get the most out of my workout.
What is your favorite way to exercise?
I have a bad knee, so when the gyms are open I use the elliptical and stair master since I can’t run. That, and the typical routine of lighter weights and high reps... Other than that, I like to put on a sweat suit and drum for a couple hours.

If money was no object, what would your ideal day look like?
My days would probably be the same! Just a lot more online shopping in between the activities.
I love all Asian food. Whether it’s Thai, Korean, Vietnamese etc... So anything in that ballpark. I’m a big fan, and it’s typically pretty guilt free.
What is on your fitness playlist?
If I’m doing cardio, I’ll watch UFC on my phone. If I’m lifting or having a home workout, I’ll listen to some sort of metal to keep my energy up. The new Lamb Of God is great. I also just discovered a band called Great American Ghost that has been fueling the workouts!
My favorite before a show is ConDense, NOXygen, and sometimes Citrulline Malate. They really ease my transition from warm up to show and allow my fatigue to not be an issue.
Is there anything else you would like to tell the world about yourself?
My band In Flames just dropped a re-release of the iconic album CLAYMAN, and I’m stoked to be apart of the re-recordings. Other than that, I wish that everyone would be kind to everyone...You don’t know what struggles they’re going through, so be kind and loving. Thanks!
