December 2012 – Charles Petraske (CCP)

What can I say about Chuck? clifton park bootcamp

That he has about as much heart as anyone in the gym?  Yup.

That he has one of the best attitudes I've ever encountered? Definitely.

That he uplifts all those around him? All day, everyday.

Chuck is one of those people that you truly look forward to seeing every time he walks through the doors.  He's quick with words of encouragement, never letting anyone get down on themselves.  He faces adversity head on.  He is always looking to improve.

From an endurance background, and a long time runner, he provided one of the most memorable statements I'll ever hear as a CrossFit coach: "I always considered myself a runner. Now.  I am a CrossFitter."  Chuck is a believer, and he helps support all the other athletes around him on that the endless pursuit of health and fitness.

Beyond his efforts as an athlete, Charles is an even better person.  In the time we've had the privilege of calling him a member of our CrossFit family, he's an amazing family man and father.  We are so very grateful to call him a friend and have the opportunity to work together.

Show some love CrossFit Clifton Park for your newest Member of the Month!
