Ian Smith found Crossfit in 2011. Before CrossFit he was doing P90x with some success and lifting weights at a globo-gym. After working out on and off for about three years he fully committed himself to a Crossfit program in March of 2013 and hasn’t looked back since. He wanted to compete in the sport of Crossfit so he dedicated himself to a new eating route and training regimen.
Ian wanted to learn as much about Crossfit as he could while at the same time help and inspire others reach their own personal fitness and health goals. This is what led him to begin training as a coach in January of 2014. “The biggest factor I like to instill in the athletes I train is the mental toughness. You have to push through the pain and get outside of your comfort zone if you truly want results.”
Ian is a CPA by day. At night (and early morning, and weekends) he eats and trains for performance. He is a graduate of Sam Houston State University and Klein Forest High School. “I am happy to be apart of the Manmade Crossfit Team.
