Matt ‘Kroc’ Kroczaleski now known as Janae Marie Kroc, former Marine and a world record holder in power lifting, announced on Instagram that she is a transgender.
Kroc, now 42 years old, waited for her three sons to graduate from high school before she transitioned herself as “transgender and gender fluid” with more female than male characteristics.

“This really isn’t about me being a boy or a girl or something in between. This is just about me being me, who I am and who I know myself to be.” Kroc mentioned, “I am trying to wait until my sons are out of high school before moving forward. This is one hundred per cent my decision not theirs.”
She further said,“My sons encourage me to do whatever I need to do and state that they are totally fine with me transitioning now or at any point I see fit. They are amazing young men and the bond we have is unreal.”
Kroc used to work in the US Marine Corps between 1991 and 1995 with the Presidential Security Duty under President Bill Clinton. Later he worked as a registered pharmacist of Walgreens. He became a world record holder in the 220-lb division after his combined weight of 2,551lbs with squat, bench press, and deadlift. He is also a model and an author.
Her personality shows she is hyper masculine and hyper feminine and she describes herself as both an alpha male and a girly girl, who felt she did not fit into any boxes of the society like two completely different people trying to share one body with both fighting over who gets to be in control.
“I have built a very good life for myself that I am hesitant to give up,” she said in one of her interviews, “and living as a transgender woman that is honest about her situation is very difficult and can be very dangerous. I am a very realistic person, and I don’t think the transitioning will magically solve all of my issues without creating new challenges.”
