Ivan has been passionately CrossFitting since he was introduced in 2007. Ivan began training out of his garage with family and close friends, until he successfully opened and founded one of the original “boxes” in Riverside in 2010.

After receiving his Level 1 certification Ivan soon realized he was capable of expanding within the CrossFit community even more when he opened his fulltime affiliate RC CrossFit. Ivan’s positive attitude, enthusiasm towards CrossFit and his very funny sense of humor are contagious to anyone who works, trains or even stands in his general vicinity. Ivan doesn’t “train members” or “clients”, he inspires, motivates and pushes his fellow CrossFit family members to extremes they would have never thought possible. His drive and motivation come from coaching, and helping others be-able to accomplish their goals, achieve the unimaginable and become better athletes.

Ivan will tell you he isn’t just your coach, he is your friend. As long as you’re willing, he will push you, motivate you, and help you achieve your goals.
