Member Spotlights! – Katie & Danny Corning!
We’re so excited to have The Cornings in The CFS Spotlight! They are an awesome duo that have been consistent hard working members since day one. Katie & Danny joined back in July of 2019. We remember their first WOD here, it was particularly rainy and windy that day and they took on the WOD that had a one mile run in the middle of it. If you remember the old loop that corner could be pretty brutal with the wind in your face!

We love having Danny & Katie at our social events as well. They attended the Bar Crawl their first year with only having been here a month! They were also very supportive as the gym navigated though the adjustments we had to make with Covid restrictions. They attended outdoor classes as soon as we opened back up and continued whether it was a hot summer day or 30 degrees, they showed up ready to work hard. If you’ve been in class with either of them you know how supportive and just fun they are to be around and we feel lucky to have them here! Read more about this amazing duo below!

What Are Your Professions?
– Accountant (very exciting I know)
Danny – Nephrology Fellow (aka Kidney Doctor)

When did you start at Crossfit Southie?
We started in June 2019 (wow been 3 years!)

Double Under Danny

What is your Favorite movement and WOD?
Katie – I have to say I do love deadlifts and favorite WOD maybe Annie because I have a chance of beating Danny
Danny – Favorite movements are deadlifts and double unders (hence my nickname Danny deadlift and Danny double under from Goose). Favorite WOD is Nancy

Katie crushing some shoulder to overheads

Which Class do you Frequent?
Katie – 6AM is the place to be
Danny – 5AM

What has been your biggest accomplishment so far?
Katie – Being able to Rx workouts – it didn’t happen a lot when I started at Southie or even every WOD now, but it feels good to be able to do the Rx weight or movements.
Danny – Completing 1000 burpees in 48 hrs with Katie during COVID

What are your Fitness Goals?
Katie – Just to be healthy and be able to carry my groceries in one trip
Danny – Deadlift 500 at some point in my life

What is your Favorite Part of Crossfit?
Katie – I know it is cliché but the community is pretty special. I have met some great people at Southie that make the 6am class the best part of the day.
Danny – I love the variety of movements and how you can challenge yourself everyday. The community is also really special and we are lucky to have met so many great people at Southie.

How did you get involved in CrossFit and what was your first WOD/experience?
Katie – I first did crossfit with my sister in Maryland when I was living at home after college. It was something we found that we could do together (and eventually got our mom into it). The first few weeks I was in a constant state of soreness.
Danny – I got involved because Katie convinced me to try it. All it took was one class and I was hooked.

What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit?
Katie – I enjoy cooking and baking, beach days with Danny, and spending time with family and friends.
Danny – Going to the beach, date nights with Katie and hanging with our niece and nephew

What’s a “Fun Fact” about you?
We were co-ed intramural volleyball champs in college, no biggie

What’s one piece of advice you would give to anyone new to the gym/ CrossFit?
Katie – Don’t be shy – introduce yourself to others in class, listen to the coaches, and have fun. The first time walking in is intimidating but everyone at Southie is there to make each other better.
Danny – Show up as often as you can and listen to the coaches, you will be amazed at how fast your fitness will progress.
