What’s Your Name?
Dr. Justin Grant, DO
Coach Rebekah Grant
Do you have a name for your gym?
Athlos Training Grounds
Tell us a little about yourself - what you do when you aren’t lifting, what are your other hobbies, etc.
We love to spend time with each other and our children, hike, camp, hunt, and read.
What made you decide to create the best garage gym ever?
Our garage gym grew naturally over time. When we first started dating, neither of us wanted to pay for memberships to the local globo-gym, so we started “paying ourselves” gym memberships. Over the last 13 years, we have evolved into a CrossFit-style garage gym, have attracted like-minded people along the way, applied the lessons of medical school and sports medicine to our years of programming, and we now sell our evidence-based workout programs online. We strive to combine lessons from medicine, science, and our experience to hone nutrition, fitness, and life performance for ourselves and our members; and we are aiming to create a community of excellence and lasting friendships amongst lifelong athletes daily pursuing the best version of themselves. We have grown into a community of #LifeLongAthletes living the #AthlosLife
What gear do you have in your gym?
Barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, plyo boxes, sleds, sand bags, battle ropes, GHD machine, pull up and squat rig, rings, weight vests, olympic lifting platform, rowers, assault bike, and a ski erg.
When did you become part of the Fringe Fam? What was your first Fringe purchase?
We joined the Fringe Fam by purchasing weight vests, rings, dumbbells, and plyo boxes over the last couple years. We have also sent Fringe equipment to friends and family as gifts. I believe our first Fringe purchase was the plyo box.
What’s your favorite gear that you use all the time?
ALL OF IT!!
What gear do you never use?
We have not purchased anything that doesn’t get used! We use it all!
What was your best gear purchase?
The weight vest! It can be worn for virtually everything to add another level of difficulty!
What gear purchase do you wish you would have said “NO” to?
None of it. We are truly happy with everything we have purchased from Fringe.
What’s your favorite workout?
We both love and look forward to the Murph every year!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
“Though it costs all you have, get understanding.” - Proverbs 4:7
What advice would you give to newbie garage gymmers?
Take your time. Check your pride. Learn about and understand your members. Build relationships. Grow a community where everybody wins through your garage.
Drop you IG, You Tube, or any other social media handles here if you’re good with us sharing!
