Laura Franchini - Owner

After much urging from my parents, I started Crossfit in 2015. I was hooked immediately! I’ve always loved the social aspect of group fitness. The treadmill in my basement never cared if I showed up for our dates…but the people I worked out with did! As a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids, Crossfit became my daily Happy Hour. It fills my need for group fitness, and adds the element of personal training. I love that I have coaches who genuinely care about me both inside and outside the gym. They push me harder than I was used to pushing myself. I love the adrenaline rush of the workouts, the raw feeling of the box and discovering that my body is capable of much more than I ever imagined.

The people at Cornerstone are what make it so amazing. I came to Cornerstone during a challenging time in my life, and it quickly became a safe place for me. I learned to be stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I give much credit to Cornerstone and the people here for helping me to become the best version of myself.

I’m a nurse and have always felt passionate about health, fitness and nutrition. I love helping people work toward health goals. I live in Liberty Township with my husband, Dominic and our 3 crazy boys, Luke, Will and Eli. We are so excited to help others achieve healthier lives and to serve the amazing Cornerstone community!
