Athlete of the month for March: Hans Daniels

When did you start with Cumming Strength and Fitness? I joined CS&F about 3 years ago. One, because my buddy Casey worked out here. And two, because I was eating at the Waffle House one day and said to myself “Look at those silly people running around – thinking they’re ALL that.” And about the 10th time everyone ran past my window (while I was crushing some smothered, covered, & chunked) I thought.. “Well, those dudes ARE kinda ripped up!! I wonder if I can do that?!” So I joined the next day. 

Favorite Workout? Murph

Least Favorite Workout? Fran or Karen

Favorite Movement?  Double Unders

Least favorite Movement? Thrusters or Wall Balls
Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military, interests, etc.).Married 14 years to a beautiful girl named Angela. We’ve got two of the sweetest, roughest, toughest, fort-building, ball playin’ WILD boys in the state of Georgia – ages 6 & 9. I run my own DJ business from the house, so we all spend a lot of time together – and YES, we have dance off’s on the regular. We do a lot of stuff outside depending on the season. From biking to boating to baseball to snow skiing… The Daniels family is outside a lot! As far as my personal interests – they tend to change from time to time. But when I AM interested in something… I go 110% until I get tired of it. I’ve been into golf, sailing, mountain biking, & music (Look up “DJ Hans Solo” on Spotify). But right now my main interest is in seeing how mentally and physically healthy I can get. 
What were you doing before you joined CS&F?I started with a home gym – bought all the stuff and… it just sat in my garage. Then, I went to OneLife, where I usually did bench press, curls, and sat in the sauna. Finally found my home at CS&F. 

Favorite music to workout to? EDM! 

Favorite Cheat meal?  The entire Easter basket in one sitting.

What were your goals when joining CS&F and have you achieved them? I have reached set goals each year. First year I just wanted to “not die”, get acclimated to this madness, and look good with my shirt off. Second year I wanted to try some competitions and hit new PRs. Now I want to push myself and see how strong I can get this body that God gave me. 

Do you have any other special memories/ achievements during your time here? Doing box jump overs, my toe caught the edge of the box on my way up… In slow motion it looked like I was going to do a full scorpion on the other side of the box. But instead – I tucked my chin – rolled like a ninja – and jumped to my feet with arms spread like the Greatest Showman. Ta-da!

What advice would you give to a newbie just joining Cumming Strength and Fitness? Go 110%! You will not die!
Something we might not know about you is? I grew up on a dairy farm in North Carolina (milking stinking cows!). I pitched left handed in college. I worked as a registered polysomnographic technologist for 14 years (that’s a sleep tech). I make an amazing homemade latte every morning with 4 shots of espresso 😳🤪
