September 2011 – Joel Berggren (CCP)

Announcing CrossFit Clifton Park’s September Member of the Month:  Joel!

Joel has been a faithful CCP devotee since we opened the doors to the new facility, and has quickly become one of the most impressive athletes in the gym.  He has certainly put in the time.

He shows up super early, gets in some mobility and stretching everyday, and always throws in some skill work.  After giving it his all in the WOD, he might hit more skill work and top it off with more foam rolling. He’s also made huge strides to clean up his diet.  Joel’s hard work has payed off as he stepped up his game, jumped in to the Competitor’s Program and had a monster performance in his first showing, topped by a PR Rack Jerk of 285!

Not to mention that he has become an integral part of the CCP community. Always ready to lend a hand building equipment, or you can see him stay late and hang out with Murph to close up.  Joel is a great guy and fully deserves this honor as September’s Member of the Month. Be on the watch for him as a force to be reckoned with come competition time!
