Placed in Charlotte, NC, Ian continues to serve with joy at his placement school for the last four years. While in college, Ian was an athlete on the men’s varsity swimming & diving team where head coach Pete Lindsay heavily influenced the man he has become today. After college athletics ended, Ian struggled to find a workout community where he could find camaraderie and a great workout! After three years of unsuccessful ventures, he stumbled into Coach Wade at CrossFit ATP. The atmosphere facilitated at ATP provided a place for close community, great workouts, and the betterment of the entire person. Ian watched as people from all walks of life and exercise backgrounds were welcomed and made better by CrossFit ATP and the community life of the gym. Ian chose to come on as a coach at ATP because of the incredibly positive impact various coaches have had on his life, and because he believes in the inclusive, personalized vision that CrossFit ATP prescribes to all people.
