Pat's Bio
Pat’s been involved in sports and athletics his entire life. He was an All-State High School football player at St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City. He participated in the North South Game at Rutger’s in 2003. After high school Pat decided not to pursue collegiate football, and spent his time doing standard weight and circuit training with a concentration in Olympic and Power lifting. In early 2011, Pat was introduced to CrossFit by his sister and immediately fell in love! He has never found a sport or training discipline that has provided results like CrossFit has. He opened CrossFit Steam with his partner to share those same results with their members.

Pat’s Favorite WOD:

Fran: 21-15-9 Thrusters and Pull Ups.  For some reason I’m pretty good at this one and enjoy the quick, short, “sprint” WODs ”

Franco's Bio

Throughout his high school years, Franco played both football and baseball.  By his senior year, he was an All-State catcher.  Due to a injury Franco had to give up playing sports, but his passion for them remained.  From a very early age, Franco understood the importance of strength and conditioning and even after his playing years, incorporated that training into his life.  It wasn’t until early 2011 when Franco was introduced to CrossFit and found that competitive atmosphere he was missing from his playing days.  He has been hooked ever since and hasn’t looked back.  Like his partner, he has a strong passion for CrossFit which is why in 2012 they started CrossFit Steam.

Franco’s Favorite WOD:

I’m a huge fan of the 21-15-9 series; I feel it is traditional CrossFit. Elizabeth got my heart racing, sweat pouring, and adrenaline pumping in a 2-3 minute workout. I would have said Fran was my favorite workout, but that’s no one’s favorite 21-15-9 workout; I’d have to be crazy!”
