Name John Richardson
Where did you grow up? Hamilton Ohio
When did you become a member of the Cornerstone community? October 2016
What do you do when you are not at Cornerstone? I’m a computer nerd. I run the Business Intelligence Solutions team at US Bank. In “real life”, I like playing with my 3 kids (Alli -13 ,AJ-11, Lucy -8) in the yard and the rare occasions I get to spend alone with my wife, Joni. Joni and Alli are also members.
What is your favorite WOD/movement? Handstand Pushups/Walk
What is your least favorite WOD/movement? Front/Back Squats
What would your perfect WOD look like? I like long 4-5 round WODs with 5 movements and a 1 minute rest, but no wall balls.
What is your favorite accomplishment/PR since becoming a part of Cornerstone? Went from barely being able to do a 75# overhead squat at the end of fundamentals to a 195# PR in 6 months
What advice would you give to someone just getting starting at Cornerstone? Really listen to the coaches. It admittedly took me a while to get on board with this. It’s really helpful to take classes with different coaches because you get a different perspective.
What goals do you have for the rest of 2017? Get better at catching cleans, jerks, and snatches lower in the squat.
