The 2016 season isn’t over yet for the Bomb Squad! The Bomb Squad finished 5th in the Southwest Region however their total score will change once Tommy and Will’s scores are taken out because they are going as individuals. Once that happens the team could be sitting somewhere between 13-17th depending on what other teams loose individual scores. Only the Top 15 teams will be invited to the South Regional but the Bomb Squad is going to be ready if they should fall in the Top 15.
This year is a brand new year for the Bomb Squad with 4 rookies joining the ladies side. This year’s squad includes Danielle Crevling, Rebecca Mendez, Chrissy Greer and Michelle Moore. Danielle, 26, is a third year medical student at Midwestern University with the desire to work in preventive medicine. She first found CrossFit in 2011, when she found herself out of shape and dissatisfied with the repetitive routines of running and yoga. Danielle quickly fell in love with the community and the competitive atmosphere. Danielle first got the bug to compete while working out Front Range CrossFit, who at the time was a Bomb Squad rival out of Colorado. In 2013, Danielle moved to the Phoenix area and shortly there after joined Fury and found the competitive program she was looking for. After two years of squeezing in workouts between long hours of studying and rounds, she kicked butt in the Open and brings consistency and skill in all areas.
Rebecca Mendez is 27 years old, born in Arizona and while living in several other states she considers Arizona her home. After completing high school out of California, she enlisted in the United States Army and served for eight years, deploying once to Afghanistan and received a Purple Heart for injuries incurred during an IED blast. Outside of Fury, Rebecca is focused on college studies. She has been accepted into Arizona State University to pursue a bachelors in Exercise and Wellness, with the hopes of a masters in Exercise Physiology. Rebecca found Fury while visiting her mom during one of her deployments and loved it so much she joined when she got out of the military. Rebecca is a huge asset to the team bringing in a strong lifting background with a 102 kilo (224lbs) clean and 78 kilo (171 lbs) snatch.
Chrissy Greer, 26, grew up in Cleveland, Ohio with athletic background in volleyball and basketball. She attended the University of Findlay in Ohio and graduated with a masters in Occupational Therapy. In 2013, Chrissy moved to Arizona to begin her career and found CrossFit Fury. It has always been her goal since the day she joined to compete in CrossFit! Over the last three years, Chrissy has improved her strength and endurance working hard to get on the Bomb Squad. Chrissy brings a huge engine, speed and intensity to the team.
Michelle Moore, the alternate for the team, is a 27 year old Physical Therapist married to our track coach Cameron Moore and has been at Fury for four years. Michelle just began a year long physical therapy fellowship for advanced training in orthopedics and an emphasis on spinal manipulation and dry needling. Michelle grew up as a competitive gymnast and was drawn to the variations of strength training, cardio and gymnastics that Crossfit has to offer. Michelle recently started competing in local competitions and loves the team atmosphere.
