Dalton Spanbauer Story

What is your daily focus, routine or ritual that you practice that starts your day off on the right foot?

Everyday I wake up at 6:30-6:45 am and get my 8 year old daughter food and ready for the day, and take her to school. I drink my pre workout.


How do you feel when you wear the NDCQ Gear?

I feel stonger and not alone. It serves as a reminder or how I should conduct my self when I do anything.


What is your biggest NDCQ moment? And/Or how does Not Dead Can’t Quit motivate you?

My biggest moment was 2016 Crossfit Regionals, I got the NDCQ coins for my whole team and before the first work out, I gave each team member one and said, that this is how we need to live this weekend, "I can only be beaten in 2 ways, If I give up or die." That lead us to qualifying for the Crossfit Games for the 3rd year in a row.

What is your next personal target? Do you feel that having an NDCQ mindset and using the Not Dead Can’t Quit mantra will help you in achieving that target? If no, how can we improve our message?

My next goal or target is to show my 8 year old daughter, and the one that is on the way with my pregnant wife, to live life without fear of failure or regrets. Not Dead Cant Quit is a reminder to me to do just that every day and teach my daughters through example.
