Alex Minsky is a 24-year-old U.S. Marine whose right leg was amputated by a roadside bomb in 2009 while he was serving in Afghanistan. Minsky spent 47 days in a coma and suffered traumatic brain injuries and severe burns to his body from the explosion.

Minsky suffered from depression and turned to alcohol to cope until he decided to fight back by stopping drinking and starting to work out.

“I didn’t want to run anymore,” he said.  “I wanted to face my problems instead.”

It was at the gym that Minsky got his big break when he was spotted by a photographer.

“He approached me and said, ‘Have you ever modeled?  Like what are you?  What are you doing?’” Minsky recalled.

“Alex wants to be an inspiration to people, to move past their disabilities,” Cullis said.  “Don’t give up.”

While Minsky’s story inspires people to keep going, his chiseled abs may inspire people to shape up.  So what is his secret?  Turns out, it’s avocados.

Alex is now the new Face for Jack Adams .
