Athlete Profile: Matt Bryant


Name Matt Bryant

Where are you from? Edgewood, KY

What is your favorite vacation spot? Why? Los Angeles — I loved the sites and the weather (I’m a movie buff, so what better place is there)

What is your favorite movie or TV show? Braveheart

What is the best gift you’ve ever received? My leg tattoo – 1st Father’s Day gift

Who is your hero? Anyone overcoming the odds. I look up to those that do what other say cannot be done. For example, I just watched a video of a guy that finished a Spartan Race that has no legs . “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.” — Muhammad Ali

What’s something we don’t know about you? I am a jack of all trades, master of none. I honestly think I can converse about just about any topic fairly well. I love to research about things I don’t know just to learn something new. If someone asks me about something I am unfamiliar with, I am probably going to Google it.

What are two pet peeves? Poor driving etiquette — no turn signal/driving slow in fast lane, etc. Not washing hands after restroom, sneezing, etc.

Favorite CrossFit movement? Deadlift, Kettlebell swings, Box jumps (I couldn’t pick just one)

Favorite CrossFit WOD? Murph

Anything else you’d like to share? I knew after about 2 weeks of dating Jenn, she was the girl I was going to marry. We have now been married for a little over 15 years and have 5 kids. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
