Scott is a 30 year old American CrossFitter. He has been at the CrossFit Games 6 times, always finishing in the top 6, but unfortunately never on the podium. His first Games appearance was in 2012 where he landed 4th place. His Regionals career is also impressive with two wins and couple of second places.

Scott Panchik owns his own gym, CrossFit Mentality in Mentor, Ohio. This name comes from his tough mentality, which he demonstrates in his determination to keep going despite having setbacks and his belief that he can overcome any obstacle.
