I’m #allin Cornerstone because…of the incredibly supportive and encouraging Community and the World Class Coaches.  I’ve made lifelong friends at Cornerstone.  The coaching staff has made me a better CrossFit athlete.  I’m routinely impressed with the coach’s knowledge and insight about the lifts and movements of CrossFit.  The coaches are great ambassadors of the sport.  The Cornerstone Leadership team does an exceptional job of providing a variety class times, so despite my crazy schedule, I can general make a class.  Being part of the Cornerstone Community gives me another opportunity to demonstrate for my boys that hard work pays off!
