About the founder

Daniel Hinojosa opened Lift ATX in September 2020.

A member of the East Austin community for 20 years, Daniel was determined to find a way to give back to the community that helped him to find a home so many years ago. His vision for Lift ATX was to offer OG East Austinites a space to call their own, a space to build community, a space to celebrate the culture, and a space to promote health and wellness in the midst of rapid gentrification.

Daniel strives to make Lift ATX a hub for the East Austin community by opening the gym to the community in multiple ways. The gym regularly hosts fundraising events, lifting meets, community networking events, and has plans for expanding these events in the near future. When planning these events, Daniel intentionally supports small businesses owned by women and people of color, and intentionally promotes in the East Austin community. Lift ATX models its community involvement by the stellar examples set by the many strong, proud pillars of the East Austin community.
