Note from Andy: I have been an athlete all my life.  I grew up playing every sport you can think of, but ultimately as a boy growing up in Ohio and the son of a high school football coach, football too became my passion.  I played football through high school and also in college at the U.S. Air Force Academy as a linebacker.  After my playing days were done, and I graduated from college, I spent 10 yeas on active duty in the Air Force as a pilot.  Most of my time spent flying was in the B-52 Stratofortress, affectionately nicknamed the “BUFF”.

Shortly after my flying career began my wife and I were in a serious motorcycle accident.  I had to undergo 7 surgeries to repair a seriously damaged ankle, which ultimately ended up in a total ankle fusion.  After learning how to walk again I feared I would never be able to lead an active athletic lifestyle that I had once enjoyed.  Until I stumbled upon CrossFit in 2009.  Thanks to CrossFit I have been able to continually make gains and lead an active lifestyle, which truly helps trying to raise 3 young boys!

Note from Greg: I grew up with three older brothers, so needless to say sports and competition have always been a big part of my life. I played football and tennis through high school, but focused on tennis in college, playing at Walsh University for 4 years.

After I graduated, I started to gain weight and was getting out of shape. I heard about CrossFit from two of my brothers, and decided to check out a local box. I was hooked almost immediately, by the amazing community, challenging workouts and by the huge improvements I could see in my fitness.

After about 6 months I decided to get my L1 certification, and began helping out coaching, and trying to learn as much as I could about CrossFit and all that it entails. CrossFit has become a huge passion of mine, and every day I try to work as hard as I can to improve as a coach as well as an athlete.

Note from Dawn: When is one supposed to stop doing handstands and cartwheels? How old does one need to be to stop swinging on the jungle gym? At which point in one’s life are we supposed to say, “That’s too heavy” or “Ugh, I can’t do that”? How old should a woman be when she concedes and no longer deadlifts or no longer does a pack run?

I started life as an athlete but eventually started believing that my running and gymnastics days were well behind me. My love of baked goods and giving into the perception of what a ‘mom’ should be overtook me and I sank deeper and deeper into the couch. One day I said, “NO MORE!” I got up and moved. I moved right into CrossFit. I ran and rowed my way into cardio and stamina. I deadlifted and handstand "push-uped" my way into strength and power. I Oly Lifted my way into speed, agility, balance, and flexibility. I Wallballed my way into accuracy and coordination.

CrossFit forces us out of our comfort zone. It forces us to train fitness areas we normally wouldn’t think of if we go with our girlfriends to Globogym and spend our time looking good in front of the mirrors. We are supposed to sweat and get dirty and have our muscles ache and burn. I spent my twenties coming out of my athletic life. I spent my thirties consuming far more calories than I burned fearing that four C-sections damaged my body beyond any athletic capability. Now in my forties I’m training hard, lifting heavy, and running far. Come with me and the rest of the Bomber’s staff to help you reach your potential. No matter your age.

Note from Adam:  I grew up in Southern California engaged in almost every water sport imaginable – from surfing to competitive swimming. The only time I wasn’t in the water was during wrestling season. After graduating from high school I decided to physically and mentally test myself in the Marines. While in the Marines, I became a Combat Swim Instructor. Two combat tours later and a separation from the Marines, I found myself in the Army Reserves and severely overweight.

After my back injury and subsequent surgery, I was told that I would never run again, let alone lead a physically active lifestyle. I turned to CrossFit as part of my rehabilitation routine. I quickly found that special focus on mechanics and meticulous attention to technique will not only help athletes avoid injury, but also drastically increase resiliency.

I started CrossFit in 2010 and found myself in nearly the best shape of my life with nearly a fully recovered back; something I need to keep up with my four active children. Come join me for an early morning workout and see how developing your overall fitness will make you happier, healthier, and ready to tackle all of life’s challenges.

Note from Daryl: After 20 years, I retired from the Air Force and focused on getting seriously fat.  After developing diabetes, high blood pressure and getting a serious wake-up call from my doctor about other ailments, I decided to take responsibility for my fitness.

I’ll never forget my first workout.  My wife and I walked around the block twice — that was about my limit.  About a year and 125 pounds later, I was off my daily bag of pills and spending at least an hour every day in the gym.  I thought I was pretty fit.  Then a guy invited me to try CrossFit.  I soon learned that while I had moved from being unhealthy to healthy, I still had a ways to go before becoming truly fit.  I’m still working toward that goal and I don’t intend on stopping.  I may be getting older, but I am not regressing – I am progressing.

I invite you to try the sport that cheers the loudest for the athlete that finishes last.

Note from CassieThe impossible just takes a little bit longer. Growing up, I dabbled in a lot of different sports, but never found my niche. After my second child was born, I found endurance sports, and developed a love for triathlons.  In 2013, my husband and I relocated to Beavercreek and I struggled to find the same type of community my tri ladies had provided at our former home.  Shortly after, I got pregnant with baby number four and put my fitness on the backburner. The recovery from the birth of my fourth was difficult.  I had serious sciatic pain and could barely roll myself out of bed.  In March of 2014, I was invited to try CrossFit and I was instantly hooked by the community that Bombers espoused, but there was a problem- I couldn’t do any of the things.  My sciatic pain was so intense I could barely do a quarter squat, I couldn’t hang from a pull up bar, and I was terrified to be upside down. Slowly, with incredible coaching and lots of hard work, I made progress, but I still doubted myself. I said things like “handstand push ups are awesome, but I’ll never be able to do that” or “rope climbs are not for me.” But I’ve learned that the impossible just takes a little bit longer. I now thoroughly enjoy overcoming my fears and pushing myself beyond what I ever thought I was capable.
