Recognizable by the tattoo of Galatians 6:14 scrawled from his left armpit to his hip, Rich Froning Jr. was dubbed the Fittest Man in History after winning four back-to-back individual CrossFit Games championships (2011-2014). Seemingly unbeatable, he also won the worldwide Open for three consecutive years (2012-2014), and when he retired from individual competition after the 2014 season, he captained his affiliate’s team, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, to two back-to-back Affiliate Cup championships in 2015 and 2016.
