February 2024 Athlete Of The Month


Time to highlight one of our spectacular athletes! What makes up an Athlete of the Month? Not crushing the hardest every workout or lifting the most weight. This athlete exhibits consistency and a hard work mentality. Every time they come to the gym they have a good attitude and give their all. This person is also welcoming of others, helping make H Dub the best community there is. Each month we choose a different athlete and post some fun facts about them to help y’all get to know them better

Congrats goes to Blake Schnell! My man is one who is always down to learn, which is a coaches dream. He isn’t here just to get a good workout, he wants to understand what he is doing and how to do it better. Though he is the young age of 24, he is wise beyond his years, knowing that investing in his fitness now will pay off much later in life! Learn more about Blake in his questionnaire below:

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I went to The University of Alabama, and have been a diehard fan all my life. Upon graduating, I moved to Nashville in May 2022. I love golfing, traveling, and eating good food.

What were your goals when you started training? 

I wanted to trim down a little, but more importantly join a gym where the workouts differ/benefit you every week to get better. I had the same weekly workout routine for 2 years.

How long have you been at H Dub and how did you get into it?

I’ve been at H Dub since August 2023. I was looking for gyms, and had a friend reach out to me about joining him for the Sweat Crawl.

What is your favorite/least favorite thing we do in training?

I like Strength Training and doing Handstand Push Ups. I despise Burpees, but I think I hate them so much, that I’m starting to love it…

How has H Dub positively affected you?

The overwhelming positivity and support from everyone, every single day. 

What advice do you have for newcomers?

Embrace the process and buy in. 

What is something no one at the gym knows about you?

I was offered to play Call of Duty for a living when I was 14.

Who are 3 people you would have a meal or drink with dead or alive?

Jesus, Nick Saban, and my Grandpa Don.

If you had an intro song when you walk into the gym what would it be?

The Boss by James Brown

Favorite Sport?

Football by far. Roll Tide!

If you could have one super power what would it be?

Be able to control time. Slow down, speed up, stop, go back, and forward in time.

What is your favorite thing to eat?

Ribeyes, O-Toro Nigiri, and Carrot Cake.
