April Male - Quincy Pearson
Name: Quincy Pearson
Where did you grow up? Middletown Ohio
When did you become a member of the Cornerstone community? I think I’ve
been a member for 5 years now.
What do you do when you are not at Cornerstone? (occupation, hobbies,
etc.) I’m a career Firefighter/Medic for the City of Franklin. I’ve been there
for 12 years now. When I’m not there I usually like to stay outdoors doing
something. Fishing mostly but I’m horrible at it.
What is your favorite workout movement? Surprisingly to some I enjoy
picking up anything heavy. I seem to be decent at it. I don’t really have a
favorite lifting movement. Olympic lifting is my weakest movements though.
I guess anything strongman lift.
What is your least favorite movement your trainer makes you do? Another
surprise to some I absolutely HATE running. A guy of my size was not built
to run. I’ve decided I will bite the bullet if the zombie apocalypse comes
because that will be too much running.
What is your favorite accomplishment since becoming a part of Cornerstone?
I guess being able to walk away after the workouts even though it may take me
awhile to get up. Performing a bar muscle up was pretty cool too.
What is something about yourself that we might not know? I’m an open book
really. I was in show choir in high school so my jazz hands are on point. I
played violin for 9 years.
What advice would you give to someone just getting started in personal
training at Cornerstone? Enjoy the ride!!! The PR’s will come eventually but
it’s the work you put in and the community that will get you there. You
won’t get genuine excitement of your first pull-up at the big name gyms.
You won’t get a crowd of people pushing you to finish or them joining you to
get you through it. What you will get is a bunch of people happy to see you
walk through the doors. You will get a great coaching staff that will teach
you proper movements.
What goals do you have for the rest of 2019? I’ve been trying to drop the
pounds. Everything is moving in the right direction besides the pounds.
Other than that just try to stay as healthy as possible.

I’m #allin Cornerstone because....our community and coaches make it easy to be.
Like previously mentioned big name gyms don’t care or wonder where you’ve been.
Everyone knows you name and is invested in you. I find myself excited to get to
the gym and throw down with fun people. I’m #allin bc without this place I would
be just sitting on the couch.
