We had the good fortune of connecting with Azu Agada and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Azu, as a parent, what have you done for you children that you feel has had the most significant impact?
I think one key thing I have shown my children while running businesses is that ownership is important. Through that they have caught on to so many life lessons. That they can do whatever it is they want if they work hard, that if they have an idea they can make it happen, that their life can be created and shaped into exactly what they choose by the choices they make. It’s our duty as parents to understand our kids start where we are economically by birthright. Let them stand on our shoulders and push the last name forward.

What should our readers know about your business?
@urbangritdallas is not the traditional gym but a warehouse style gym designed for trainers and members who are looking to enjoy their training in a more private facility. Minimal hassle, less traffic leaving laser focused at your task at hand. We believe in building a community of people who look out for one another, inspire one another and go after our goals in and outside the gym.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The itinerary would consist of a morning workout here @urbangritdallas then brunch somewhere in bishop arts, dinner downtown at Woolworth and a late snack at the cake bar

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Without the support of our members and trainers none of our efforts and success would be possible. To have an idea and have others support and appreciate that idea is enough. Also the Dallas fitness community as a whole helps keep me motivated and inspires me to grow in my own personal fitness but also in wanting to make my Space even better for those who enjoy this style of gym.
