The first-ever repeat CrossFit Games Men's champion, Rich Froning Jr., has been a force to be reckoned with since his CrossFit debut. The 25-year-old athlete, from Cookeville, Tenn., found CrossFit in 2009. He competed for the first time in 2010, taking first place in the Central East for both Sectionals and Regionals. He has come a long way since training with homemade equipment in his father's barn and is looking to defend his title yet again in 2013.
The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games will re-air on ESPN2 starting Dec. 16.
