Member Spotlight: Daniel Grant
Unless you frequent the 5:30am, you may not know the dry, sarcastic wonder that is Daniel Grant. Allow us to enlighten you:
Q: What got you into CrossFit and what made you stick around?
A: What got me here: Hroch promised me I’d lose my dad bod. What kept me here: Becky’s constant references to “make a banana shape with your body” to explain how to do a hollow rock.
Q: What has been your proudest moment in the gym?
A: Showing up at 5:30 am, ALONE, and completing the 50 Busters WOD, all while Sadie was yelling in my face because I was the only one to yell at. Instagram has proof.
Q: What is something you’re really proud of outside the gym?
A: That I survived two half marathons. And when you add them together, that equals a full.
Q: If you had to pick one Austin restaurant to eat at for the rest of your life, which would it be?
A: Old Thousand. No…. Uchiko. No…. Enchiladas Y Mas. Final answer.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
A: Eating my kids’ leftover Dairy Queen blizzards. I always order them the Large.
Daniel, we love kicking the day off with you. Thanks for being who you are, and sorry about all the yelling (kinda).
