Stafflete Ian Ballentine

Ian is completely amazing. He's a regional marketing manager for the company, yeah, but he's so much more than that. He's Sports Basement main source of energy and enthusiasm. In fact, we're pretty sure he powers the entire Berkeley store with just the force of his personality. He runs most of our large-scale events, like packet pickups, film screenings and pro athlete panels, and seem to be friends with basically every mover and shaker in the industry. And he's a powerhouse outside of work as well! 

Ian's motto is "I LIVE HARD" (yes, in all caps) and if you meet him, you'll believe it. When he's not at work, he's pushing his body as hard as he can. You'll find him running (trail & road), riding (mountain & road), swimming and dabbling in cross-fit. Only a guy as active as Ian can "dabble" in CrossFit. Outside of the Basement, he's got quite the adventuresome spirit and travels with his wife quite a bit. What’s Ian's lie? He's definitely not a hardcore vegan. In fact, he's kind of a carnivore.
