July Male - John Richardson

John Richardson

Age 37

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.

I like handstands

I eat anything

I do try

I am tired
