Bombers CrossFit History

Andy and Kids

Bombers CrossFit began as a passion for fitness, sport, and coaching and it all started with Andy and Mandy Kerschbaum; as they both had the privilege of playing college athletics.  Andy played football for the US Air Force Academy; while Mandy played volleyball for Wofford College.  Sport and competition continued to play a large role in Andy and Mandy’s lives; as after college, they carried that passion and drive into the CrossFit world.

While Andy was still on Active Duty in the Air Force as a pilot, he and Mandy built a garage gym.  This early garage facility hosted countless neighbors, coworkers, and friends for many WODs.  What ensued after many months was an intense desire to provide others with a high level of instruction and coaching so that everyone could enjoy the benefits of a healthy active lifestyle.

Thus, Bombers CrossFit was born and Andy and Mandy quickly found themselves outgrowing their garage gym.  The growing community was blessed to find a 1,700 sq ft facility to expand their efforts to in November 2013.  However it doesn’t stop there…

Little did Andy and Mandy know that their new business would thrive beyond expectations in the Beavercreek, OH area; in December 2014, Bombers CrossFit had to move again to a nearby 5,500 sq ft facility.  In July 2018, Bombers CrossFit completed construction and moved into their new 7,000 sq ft facility situated on 5 acres of land.  Now Bombers CrossFit is made up of dedicated coaches, their families, and the members of which the CrossFit affiliate trains.

At the pace Bombers CrossFit is continuing to grow, the Dayton, OH area had better be prepared for the thunderstorm forming from within Bombers CrossFit’s walls…

    I received an unexpected thank you gift yesterday from one of our new neighbors. One of the neighbors was throwing a surprise party over the weekend and need some extra space to park some cars. They asked if we would let them park in our parking lot. I said yes, and didn’t think about it at all — that’s just what neighbors in a community do.  We purposefully moved the gym out from an industrial space so we could become move involved with our community and fully support those who support us.

    The tsunami has landed. As Owen Dyer reported last December in the BMJ:
    -
    “Life expectancy at birth in the United States fell again in 2017 for the third year running, the longest sustained decline since 1915-18, when the first world war and the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic were among the causes of death.”
    -
    Why is a once-in-a-century sustained decline in life expectancy not yet a matter of national discussion, let alone a major political issue? While the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services so clearly is failing in its mission “to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans,” what is it doing instead?
    -
    What have the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) done to address the health crisis?
    -
    The unfortunate truth is that rather than defending public health, the U.S. government’s public health agencies have followed a consistent and problematic pattern of behavior:
    -
    1. understating the problem
    2. ignoring the causes
    3. partnering with those responsible
    -
    As government institutions fail, it is up to individuals to seek out resources that help them combat chronic disease and support a long and healthy life. The resources available in CrossFit affiliates around the world are so effective in this regard that they may be optimal.
    -
    Greg Glassman, Founder and Chairman of CrossFit, Inc.: “Each box, each gym is a lifeboat in what is a tsunami of chronic disease.”

    After a month in Europe, coming back here and walking around Kroger on a random Tuesday night was borderline nauseating. The relative fitness of the general population is not comparable.

    We can’t say enough about the CrossFit Jump Rope course... you’ve gotta try it!
    ・・・
    Thanks Coach @gkersch5 We couldn’t have said it any better! The goal of @crossfit Jump Rope is not to work on your double unders. The goal is to make your double unders INCIDENTAL...just one of many functional skills you can do with your jump rope. And when our progressions are followed the infamous DU isn’t anything more than a RESTING AND RECOVERY MOVEMENT.
    Next courses:
    5/18 Marietta GA
    5/19 Macon GA
    6/1 Allentown PA
    6/22 Cookeville TN
    6/29 Salt Lake City UT

    MCI, Mechanics, Consistency, Intensity. First we begin with mastering the fundamentals — this is the skills and drills aimed at making small improvements over time. Next as we consistently demonstrate solid understanding of the fundamentals over time we move towards intensity. Check out one of the many @crossfitaffiliates in the Dayton area and see how to get started today!
