I am Steven Pachan, father, athlete, coach, and friend. I have had such an amazing experience thus far since doing CrossFit. I have gone through some very trying times in my life and the CrossFit community has helped me through those times. I can honestly say that CrossFit has provided an outlet for me and has changed who I am for the better.
Growing up, I always played sports. I played baseball, basketball, soccer, and football. When I got to high school, I solely played baseball. It wasn’t until I began playing football that I found my true love. I put all of my attention towards football and trained hard to achieve my goal of playing college football. I eventually earned a scholarship to play quarterback for Minnesota State Mankato. I performed very well during my time there and gained the attention of a few pro teams. I never made it to the pro level and was on the search for a new passion. I found CrossFit. It was now my new “football”, and I haven’t looked back. I love everything that CrossFit brings. It brings a community that matches the camaraderie that I had in football.
I love what CrossFit does for people and I look forward to building myself as an individual and a coach. There is nothing more satisfying than helping others achieve their goals.
