Rich Froning won the title of “Fittest Man on Earth” four times in a row in the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 CrossFit Games.
Froning did not only dominate the sport but also became a pioneer in making millions off Crossfit. An example being his prize money of $1,050,000 which he accumulated by winning the Crossfit games, 4 times in a row. Furthermore, his noteworthy sponsorships from brands like Reebok,Oakley and Rogue Fitness have also allowed him to earn significantly more than other athletes alongside him.
The man has been so influential that he even has his own documentary. Check out the trailer.
“It’s been on @netflix outside the states but just this last week @richfroning made his way to the platform in 🇺🇸 Really proud of this movie and grateful to Rich and @hillaryfroning for opening their lives up for the rest of us to learn how to be better people.”

Snatch: 306 lb (139 kg)

Froning does not hold to the Paleolithic eating regimen nor Zone diet, both of which are prominent in the CrossFit community.
Froning eats a considerable measure of Peanut butter and prefers to drink whole milk more often. The athlete’s secret to success always has been to listen to his body and eat whenever he is hungry.
