Corinna has always been an active person starting at a young age. She played softball and volleyball in high school, making varsity in both sports by her sophomore year. She then went on to play volleyball for two years at Citrus Jr College. After that, she decided to focus more on school so she transferred to Cal State Long Beach where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Soon after graduation, Corinna married her longtime boyfriend, Todd, who is now a firefighter/paramedic for The City of Riverside. They decided to begin a family right away and now have four beautiful children: Emma, Jacob, Luke, and Samuel.
Corinna started CrossFit when her youngest son was about six months old. She had been in and out of gyms, worked out at home, and was a part of a private moms' workout group prior to starting CrossFit. Nothing really caught her attention for long enough and she kept wanting more. A friend recommended she try 951, and after day one she was hooked. She was a little intimidated at first by the barbell and gymnastics movements, but that faded fast as she jumped right in with both feet. She loves the team and competitive atmosphere that CrossFit provides, and loves to compete with her husband or friends in local competitions whenever possible.
With four kids, Corinna's schedule is always full, but she still finds time to get to the gym. Besides her family, of course, CrossFit is definitely what she loves to do!
Matt is an active father of 4 beautiful children and the husband to Carrie Driscoll. Matt started his CrossFit journey when his brother, the Wellness and Fitness Coordinator for Orange County Fire Authority, recommended a change to his mundane chest, tri, and bi workouts at 24-hour fitness. Matt has a deep history with athletics so when his passion of physical activity united with CrossFit’s theory of functional fitness, he immediately fell in love. CrossFit’s intensity, comradery, and family atmosphere really resonated with him.
Matt is a graduate from Eastern Michigan University, where he received a football scholarship and obtained a bachelor of science degree in criminology. He worked in the criminal justice system for a short time before becoming a General Contractor. In January 2014, Matt was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma with malignant tumors in the bone marrow of his legs, both lungs, and on his adrenal gland. In January 2015, Matt had his first clean scan! When Matt was diagnosed, he thought he was in the best shape of his life. He had been a devoted CrossFit athlete for 4 years and had learned the importance of fueling the body correctly, so he couldn’t figure out why he was struck with such a debilitating disease. Although cancer has plagued the last 2 years of his life, CrossFit has given him a fighting chance. Matt's doctor and nurses believe his resilience and ability to bounce back after the first year of battling this disease and going through chemo and immunotherapy treatments are a testament to proper nutrition and a smart, effective physical activity program. Matt wishes to share his experiences and knowledge with others and strives to bring smiles to more faces.
