About Rich

Past CrossFit World Champion Rich Froning, Jr. is “The Fittest Man on Earth.” He’s fast. He’s strong. And he’s incredibly disciplined. But it takes more than physical strength to compete and win at an elite level. It takes incredible mental and spiritual toughness as well. It is the precise balance of all three that makes Rich Froning, Jr. a champion.

He was the winner of four consecutive Reebok CrossFit Games from 2011-2014. The former firefighter from Cookeville, Tennessee, first took up CrossFit in 2009 and made his Games debut a year later, finishing second overall. Even after stepping away from the individual competition, Rich still found his way to the top of the podium again as a member of Team CrossFit Mayhem Freedom in 2015 and 2016.
