Kerry Penner

Owner, Coach and Programmer


I am the father of two daughters, a husband, a farrier  and a full time employee of the US Air Force Reserve. I  have been using CrossFit as my primary fitness regimen since 2009 when my wife, Amelia, requested I come to her class. In 2012 we opened AKP CrossFit  with the goal of offering a fun and effective fitness alternative to people in the areas surrounding Wright-Patterson Air Force base. I am  currently pursuing training and certification as an Active Shooter Response Trainer with Aaron Janetti.

I coach the Saturday community class, Holiday WODs and occasionally sub for regular weekday classes. My primary responsibility is in providing programming for all the adult CrossFit programs.

Outside the gym, I enjoy our cats (who sometimes assist in programming) and working on cars.
