Biography

Coach Ian Sprehn has been doing CrossFit for 6 years, and has over 3000 hours personal training experience, training clients ranging from 14 to 84 years old. He specializes in strength training, post-injury rehabilitation and corrective exercise. He says, “Beyond helping and leading individuals to weight loss or strength gains, I am passionate about making people’s experience in the gym a positive one and educating the benefits of fitness.”

Ian says he started out his athletic journey with high school sports, such as varsity basketball and some football, but notes that he was not very good at the latter. With his background evolving, and having become “a regular gym rat,” Ian thought he was in good shape. However, once he tried CrossFit, he found himself “humbled fast!” He says, “I was hooked. A few years later I got my CFL-1, and when I came to CF7C I loved the gym vibe and wanted to be a part of the coaching culture here.”

He wants people to know, “I all around LOVE LOVE fitness. There isn’t one modality of fitness I devalue, except the shake weight. I will literally take the time to help anyone out to help increase their fitness, especially those that are motivated to change!”
