“It doesn’t matter your age, gender, orientation, or skill level, people here care about you for your character.” -Ian Williams
This week we chat with Ian Williams for Member Monday. A member since August 2014, Ian has recently moved in to a position working with our 317 Kid’s program. Read on to get to know a little more about Ian’s experience at CrossFit 317.
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“Training at 317 has affected my life outside the gym by attacking the day with a solid pace solidified by Crossfit. I can’t say I do anything fast, but I stay in constant motion both at work and at home. My time is more productive in all facets because of my training. I wear my kids out more than they can wear me out and that’s a beautiful thing..”
Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“Nothing definitive comes to mind as far as memories go about 317, just things that I think about fondly. I love the long, grueling workouts (especially bro sessions), Saturday partner and team wods, and a PR for anyone is awesome to witness.”
What’s your favorite movement in CrossFit?
“I have a few favorite movements that I love to see in wods: Kettlebells are for sure number one, but I also like ring dips, and rope climbs.”
What do you love to do in your free time?
“Obviously I love to workout but I also like to read fiction, hang out with my kids, do yoga, and I’m always down for anything active. I also love to be outside as much as possible.”
If you could sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?
“The one word I would use to describe 317 is community. I think we find what CrossFit is all about at this box. It doesn’t matter your age, gender, orientation, or skill level, people here care about you for your character. Going to the gym is easily my favorite part of the day.”
