DFX Coach

Steve Shaffer


In which area do you excel the most?
I enjoy the relationships we get to build. Each athlete is different and has their own set of skills, challenges, and experiences to learn from. I leverage my 10 year CrossFit journey to help bring out their best.

When did you start CrossFit and when did you start coaching?
CrossFit in June 2012 and started coaching in December 2021. Each day walking through the doors is an opportunity to learn and grow!

Do you have a career outside of CrossFit? If so, what is it?
I’m probably a bit of a techie. I enjoy the latest greatest innovations. I’m also trying to get back into sports card trading.

Where are you from?
Born in the Midwest (shout out to Evansville, IN), but raised and spent the last 30+ years in Raleigh.

Do you have any additional credentials or accolades?
BA in Criminology as well as an MBA from NC State University. I’ve been in the software industry going on 15 years.
