Manny Catano

Manny is a fireman in Blue Springs and a former professional soccer player. He was drafted in the MLS by the Columbus Crew after a stellar career at Park University. He also spent some time in the USL and NASL. He is a founding member of the Harambe soccer club and still actively coaches club soccer. He was a high school soccer coach for many years at Park Hill and helped train some of the area’s premier players from the last decade or so.

Manny has been at CFN from the beginning. In fact, when we approached Manny to see if he’d be interested, we learned he’d been doing CrossFit for a year or so at the fire station. Anyone taking a class from Manny can tell he is a stickler for doing things right when it comes to form and technique and his coaching is top notch. Everyone loves Manny’s classes. Manny is CrossFit Level 1 certified and also holds certifications in Movement and Mobility, Weightlifting, and Endurance.

Additionally, Manny and his wife Christy have 2 wonderful children Bella and Giovanni.
