Athlete Success Stories

“A year and a half ago, I started at CrossFit Love as a way to break up my boring gym routine. My plan was to go two days a week and still maintain my own workouts at home…that didn’t last. Each month, I found myself devoting more and more time there; I couldn’t get enough. I had been a competitive athlete through college and to be honest I never really thought I missed it. That was until it was back in my life.

Joe Petrusky is an amazing coach! He has taken me from not being able to do a pullup to competing at the CrossFit Games Regionals after only a year of training. Not only has he taught me the fundamentals of CrossFit, but he’s also taught me to push myself and believe in my abilities.

CrossFit Love has become my home away from home, and the members and coaches there have become a community of friends I know I can count on.”

“I can truly say that Joe Petrusky and CrossFit Love have changed my life. For me, CrossFit is not merely a workout, it has become my way of life. My father has a history of numerous heart surgeries and my mother suffers from obesity. Due to this, CrossFit Love has become a path to health for me and my family by providing awareness and implementation of good nutrition and strength training.

I have always been fairly fit but training at CrossFit Love has been a completely different ball game. It has challenged me to embrace things that I never thought I could and has given me that opportunity to grow.  Joe Petrusky pushes me past my limits everyday and has made me realize that the word “I can’t” no longer exists in my vocabulary.

I may not be able to snatch 95lbs today, but I know that through lots of practice and hard work, I will. Rome wasn’t built in a day. CrossFit Love is a positive and supportive environment/gym. It has become an alleyway to my personal definition of success and excellence. I’M ADDICTED TO CROSSFIT!”

“I’m extremely happy that I chose to start training at CrossFit Love. It’s been the perfect environment for me to grow as an athlete. The coaches and athletes, especially Joe, continually push me past my comfort zone to increase my strength, conditioning, and mobility.  I’ve been a professional fighter for over 5 years now and I’ve never had as much fun supplementing my strength training as I’ve had in the last 9 months I’ve been at CrossFit Love. I’m in the best shape of my life and I’ll never worry about gassing out in a fight ever again. I constantly look forward to the fun, competitive and supportive atmosphere of training at CrossFit Love. Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better program, trainers, or workout buddies than what I’ve found here. Get Some.”
