About the Movie
Rich Froning Jr. entered the 2014 CrossFit Games competition with three consecutive victories, a feat that no other athlete had accomplished. After finding CrossFit in 2009, Froning began a history-making career, finishing second at the CrossFit Games in 2010 and dominating the competition for the next four years. His four titles, five trips to the podium, 16 event wins, 35 top-five event finishes and 45 top-10 event finishes are all records, and he’s revered in the community. Froning’s athletic prowess has been under the microscope for five years, but there’s much more to the man from Tennessee than snatches and pull-ups. In this in-depth documentary by Heber Cannon, take a look into the life and childhood of the fittest man in history, follow his quest to a fourth straight CrossFit Games championship, and see him as a son, a husband and a new father.
Will always watch this for those days I need motivation! Amazing film work as well!
Amazing story that all can appreciate
The CrossFit media has done an incredible job of telling the story of the sports most dominant athlete. Yes, there are your expected workout scenes but this documentary focuses on who Rich Froning actually is and the people and events that have shaped his life. Some of the best parts of this film come not just from watching his physical dominance at the CrossFit games but also from hearing about the personal aspects of his life. Events such as Rich deciding to become a follower of Christ, his marriage, and the adoption process he and his wife take show great insight into the "fittest man in history." I highly recommend this film to both CrossFitter and non-CrossFitter alike.
