Todd has been in the fitness industry for over 25 years. Currently, Todd has multiple certifications in fitness including, but not limited to, CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Kids, CrossFit Mobility, and CrossFit Olympic Lifting. He has worked with everyone from pro athletes and celebrities to children and senior citizens.
In 2005, Todd took over ownership of Rezults Downtown Fitness in Cleveland, where he successfully ran the business until 2016, when he decided to close the doors after the building his gym occupied was sold. Todd also opened, owned, and operated one of Northeast Ohio’s first CrossFit gyms, NEO, from 2012-2014.
At the height of his professional career, and when he was in his peak physical condition, Todd experienced a slew of personal hits and losses that caused him to withdraw from the fitness industry completely. Todd found himself spending his spare time drinking and putting on excess weight, and he stopped working out altogether. In December 2017, at the age of 43, Todd suffered a stroke that left him shaken, but not broken. He continued down an undesirable path.
In May of 2018, just a month-and-a-half after turning 44, Todd had a second stroke that kept him in the hospital for over two weeks. While in the hospital, Todd experienced a third stroke. Doctors told Todd that his fitness level up to the point where he had stopped training was probably what saved his life.
Unable to sit up independently on the side of the bed after his second stroke, Todd decided it was time to take his future into his own hands and welcome fitness and good health back into his life. Todd is now back in the gym, training, and working to gain back his health and fitness.
An avid golfer, Todd lost his ability to efficiently swing a club following his strokes. He has been able to rehab himself through his workouts, and he has experienced increased swing speed and hitting distance. Although not back to his prior level, Todd’s goal is to once again have a 3 handicap.
Todd’s favorite message to share from one of his mentors is, “Life happens for you, not to you.” It is his hope to take his experiences, both good and bad, to transform his life and the lives of others for the best.
Corina has been in the health and fitness industry her whole life. Corina grew up in Ashtabula, where she was a competitive gymnast at The Chalk Box from the time she was a child until she graduated high school. Always a better coach than athlete, she coached gymnastics at that facility, and she later went on to coach at Buffalo Turners in New York. Through her different coaching experiences, she was able to work with elite gymnasts, as well as collegiate-level gymnasts. She also participated in coaching seminars with former Olympic gymnasts, Svetlana Boginskaya, Kip Simons, and Blaine Wilson, among others.
In 2000, Corina graduated from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY with her master of science degree in physical therapy. She began her career working at a New York facility for profoundly disabled children and adults. It is here that Corina gained a remarkable understanding of function and dysfunction in the human body and became an expert on normal and abnormal movement patterns. Corina went on to further her education through Simmons College, where she earned the degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy with Distinction in 2007.
Since moving back to Ohio in 2006, Corina has focused her career on the geriatric population. Her favorite part of her work is storytelling. She loves hearing stories from the Greatest Generation, and she has gained an enormous amount of respect and admiration for these individuals as she has heard countless real-life tales of heroism, loss, and triumph. Corina believes that our elderly are one of our greatest gifts and that they are too often expected to age quietly while simply accepting that getting older means becoming disabled. Corina’s goal at ROC is to show the community that our elderly can be healthy, fit, and self-sufficient, and that within each one of them lies an athlete.
