Joe Petrusky

Head Coach & Owner

@JoePetrusky is the owner of CrossFit Love. Philadelphia's leading CrossFit facility. It has turned into a breeding ground for those who want to excel at CrossFit. 

His once small garage space in the Northern Liberties / Fishtown area of Philadelphia is now turning heads. Joe preaches achieving quantitative fitness goals through hard-work, intelligent programming and a no-quit team environment. He promises he will bring passion if you bring the heart. If you are willing to learn, work, and grow . . . you won’t find anything else like it in Philadelphia.

Joe attended The Pennsylvania State University where he received an undergraduate degree with a B.A. in Telecommunications. Since 2007, he has been a trainer within the CrossFit community and in early 2009 he became the 1000th CrossFit affiliate. He leads CrossFit Love as the premier CrossFIt facility in Philadelphia.
