Client Spotlight - Ian Ashcraft-Williams

1) How would you describe yourself to someone you just met? 

I would describe myself as someone who is pretty quiet and shy when meeting people for the first time. I'd like to think I am laid back, curious, kind, and a hard worker. I also have a little bit of a competitive streak.

2)  When did you first start training with Alex and Revision Athletics? Why did you start?

I started working out with Alex 2 years ago and joined Revision Athletics the first week he opened it. I started group workouts because I found myself in a bad cycle. I would exercise for a week, maybe two, then do nothing for an extended period. I was feeling lethargic physically and mentally, and I needed a change because exercising alone wasn't working. I was also engaged at the time, and wanted to feel healthy and confident for the wedding.

3) How has your life changed since starting taking classes?

I am definitely more physically fit, but I'm able to focus better mentally too. I am a little more carefree and don't get stressed easily. I am more appreciative/present. There is something about waking up early, exercising outside, and seeing the sunrise over the city that makes you feel happy to be alive. And I have met some wonderful people in class.

4)  Who do you look up to?

I look up to my Mom. She raised two children by herself and was able to give us all the things she didn't have when she was a kid. She is compassionate, smart, fearless, giving, and has a relentless work ethic. She is the best!

5) Do you have any special skills or talents that most people don’t know about?

I can bake a mean snickerdoodle cookie.
