Meet Christy Frikken
Founder and Owner of Fury Coaching
Hello I’m Christy.
I train skydivers who crave incredible formation skydiving.
I give them the tools to fly like a champ and score more points while sprinkling a healthy dose of fun.
- Lots of competition experience on professional teams SDC Rhythm XP and Perris Fury
- Ratings: AFF Instructor, Pro-Rating, Former IBA Wind Tunnel Instructor Level 2
- Experience and ability to coach in all iFly tunnels (corporate and private)
- 16,000 jumps and 21 years in the sport
- Records: Women’s world record holder, Women’s Sequential world record captain, IL State Women’s largest formation and sequential records chief organizer
- 2007 Skydiver of the year
And when I am not coaching people in the wind tunnel and helping teams, I can be found vegging out with Assassin’s Creed, running, watching cooking reality shows, and tinkering with computers.
If you are dying to know more, here are five things you don’t know about me:
- My nickname around Perris is Crispy Chicken
- I was a software engineer for 8 years before becoming a pro skydiver
- My first US Nationals team scored a 4.4 average in intermediate and it absolutely rocked.
- I love playing board games and I’ve built my own gaming table
- I have lived in Minnesota, New York, Pourstmouth UK, Arizona, and California
