Before they co-owned CrossFit Steam, Pat O'Keefe and Franco Monteleone were both All-State sports stars and fitness enthusiasts. They allied under a common mission: to cut monotony and ineffective maneuvering from gym routines. Now, as certified CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Football coaches, they guide guests of all backgrounds through ever-changing workouts, combining the competitive spirit of athletics with weightlifting, cardio drills, and gymnastics techniques.
In addition to classic CrossFit sessions, they host boot-camp classes that draw from the program's fundamentals. They also arrange CrossFit Football regimens—tested inside the industrial-style gym by Superbowl Champion Mark Herzlich—to enhance on-the-field performance and on-the-sidelines bear hugs. Their approach to fitness considers diet as well. On-hand beauty and wellness expert Claudia Colombo-Monteleone has worked with such celebrities as Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts on her way to becoming CrossFit Steam's board-certified holistic nutrition coach.
