About this 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.

This man's story inspired an overweight computer nerd to stop smoking and get his a** down to the gym! I believe Froning success is rooted in his passion for the sport but also learning to get his priorities right. Work hard BUT don't forget to play (live) hard. Else you've only accomplished 50%. Enough said - watch this awesome film!!

Don't waste your time. You learn almost nothing of value about his life before crossfire. The pacing and composition made it very hard to follow and overall it was just badly conceived.

With all the madness in the world it's nice to see a simple, good hearted person showing what the body is capable of... well, his at least. Very well done documentary.
