August Male - Matt Gallaugher

Matt Gallaugher


Age 37

Where did you grow up? Prescott, Ontario (Canada)

When did you become a member of the Cornerstone community? June 2016

What do you do when you are not at Cornerstone? 
I’m a Research Engineer at AK Steel. In my free time I like to play sports. I used to play a lot of soccer and basketball when I was younger, but I’ve been doing more ultimate frisbee and hockey lately as I get older.

What is your favorite WOD/movement?
I like rowing and split jerks (a weird combination)

What is your least favorite WOD/movement?

What would your perfect WOD look like?
Anything that’s heavier on cardio and lighter on weights

What is your favorite accomplishment/PR since becoming a part of Cornerstone?
I used to struggle a lot of deadlifts, so eventually getting that over 300# was rewarding.

What is something about yourself that we might not know?
I have a PhD in engineering (i.e. nerd – the goggles are a dead giveaway)

What advice would you give to someone just getting starting at Cornerstone?

Be patient and stick with it. It takes a while to be proficient at all the movements, and workout
recovery can be rough at the beginning.

What goals do you have for the rest of 2017?
Be able to do muscle-ups and butterfly pull-ups
