Give to your family/friends and Steve's Club at the same time!

Still in search of the perfect gift for a friend, loved one or yourself this holiday season? Check out the amazing products, coaching plans and one-on-one private sessions with elite athletes and high-level coaches in our community that our supporters have so generously donated.

Enter the raffle by making a donation to Steve's Club. These donations ("bids") will help us start more Local Steve’s Clubs in cities that need them!

How it works:

  1. Each item below has it's own donation/bidding page.
  2. Make a donation. That will serve as your "bid" which enters you into a randomly drawn raffle for that item at the end of the 10 days.
  3. Each item has a minimum amount that you must bid to be considered.
  4. Each item also has a "Buy It Now" price. Once your donation goes through, we'll email you and close the page so no other bids will be allowed.
  5. You have 10 days to bid on any/all items.
  6. Bidding closes Dec 21st at midnight ET.
  7. We will choose the winners on Dec 22nd.


  • Make sure you enter at least the minimum bid amount!
  • There will only be ONE winner per item. Just because you "bid" on an item, does not mean you will win it.
  • The size of your donation will not increase your chances of winning.
  • You can enter multiple donations for the same item to increase your chances of winning.
  • Some of the items can only be used at specific gyms/locations. If you don’t live in close proximity to the gym where the item/session is located, travel to California, Texas, Massachusetts, New York, etc. and make a trip out of it! Some of these experiences are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities; so don’t let that stop you from bidding!
  • The items must be used by a specific date.
  • To select the winner for each offer, we will use a random # generator and count from the top of the list by timestamp of when the donation was received.
  • Make sure to enter a valid email when making a donation. This is how we'll contact you if you win.
  • If you win a coaching session, we will put you in touch directly with them to coordinate the date/time and logistics.

Featured Club: A Great Victory for Steve’s Club Denver

Posted on October 14, 2015 by Steve Liberati
Filed under: Good News, Local Clubs

The Do More Charity Challenge at Front Range CrossFit in Denver, Colorado earlier this month allowed teams to choose a cause they believe in and compete for the chance to earn money for it.  The event had over 20 teams and CrossFit Games athletes Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Pat Burke, Jasmine Dever, and Scott Olson competed.  

Steve's Club Denver had three teams that competed on its behalf and raised over $2,000 before the competition.  The team from Project Rise Fitness - Stapleton took 5th place and earned an additional $10,000 for the program!

"There were fully grown men and women crying from happiness as we found out just how much we had helped Steve's Club Denver," said an elated and emotional Duncan Seawall, founder of Steve's Club Denver. "The win simultaneously put us on the map in the Denver non-profit and CrossFit communities. More importantly, it ensured our program's longevity, and with the funds we will be able to bring our club to more kids in the Denver area.  Starting a Steve's Club was one of the best decisions we've ever made. There are kids getting fitter, adults learning from kids and an entire community coming together to make sure these kids avoid becoming just another statistic."

Congratulations Steve's Club Denver!

Lives Changed At Steve’s Club Leadership Camp 2014

Posted on September 12, 2014 by Steve Liberati

A few weeks ago, 30 Steve's Club kids, from across the nation, came together for a Leadership Camp in beautiful Indian Gap, Pennsylvania for a week of fitness, learning and laughter. The kids went through a rigorous application process to be chosen for this life-changing opportunity. They answered questions about their future goals, accomplishments they are most proud of, and their definition of leadership.

"Being a leader is not about being in charge or giving commands," said Caleb from Colorado. "It's about doing the right thing and encouraging others around you to do that too."

The Steve's Club National Program staff led by Steve Liberati, Lee Knight and Tiffany Dalagelis created a week-long itinerary packed with workouts, inspirational guest coaches, and team-building activities focused on problem-solving, communication, and leadership. Guest coaches from around the country flew in to participate and facilitate. Coaches from Local Clubs included Coach Blanco from SC New York City, Coach Rebecca from SC Nashville, and Coach Eric from Unbroken Kids.

Josh Murphy from CrossFit HQ, Tanner Cook, who taught Olympic Weightlifting, Abe Pelton and Drew Kenney of the US Marine Corps, Austin Malleolo and Denise Thomas from Reebok One and CrossFit Seminar staff, Greg Amundson of CrossFit Amundson and Erin Kelly of CrossFit 1Force rounded out the Guest Coach line up.

"There aren't words to explain the impact of Leadership Camp," said Denise. "I wondered what words of wisdom or tools could I offer the kids, but in the end, I received the life lessons. Steve's Club Leadership Camp is the product of tireless effort, constant love and care, and always finding a way to say 'yes' when it would be easy to say 'no.' It's an honor to be invited, and I will always support Steve's Club."

This is the second year for the Leadership Camp. In addition to providing fitness and enrichment activities, the kids had fun too! They went swimming, kayaking, canoeing, played sports and enjoyed campfire activities like singing and making s'mores. The amazing support from our donors and the CrossFit community, as well as the sale of Steve's PaleoGoods, allows us to continue to host this Leadership Camp at no cost to the Steve's Club athletes that are selected. The goal is to expand our reach, and invite more kids to attend next year.

"Everyone has a calling in life," said Ray from Steve's Club Camden. "Steve's Club Leadership Camp showed me anything is possible. Leading others is my true calling."

"This camp experience is a first for many of our kids," said Steve. "It's a place for them to learn and grow, but also a place to relax. Some of the realities of their lives are impossible to imagine. Many aren't safe walking around their own neighborhoods. Steve's Club is a safe environment and an extended family for these kids. Your purchase truly changes lives."

"I'm no longer afraid of being caught up in the streets," Ray added. "I am stronger physically and mentally. Thanks to Steve's Club, I am ready to change the world!"
