Mat Fraser, Pursuit for Better
“Mat Fraser earned the title of Fittest Man on Earth back in August at the CrossFit Games, dominating the competition for the fourth year in a row. In a documentary filmed during the days leading up to the third week of the 2020 CrossFit Open, Fraser spoke about how he is constantly striving to be better.
“His wake-up call came when Fraser realized his self-destructive behavior had become too much of a norm. ‘One night, I got in trouble. I came home, and it was that my dad wasn't mad. I came home, I showed him the paperwork of the fines I'd gotten and the trouble I'd been in, and he was just like ... he didn't even interrupt his phone call. He didn't care. And that broke my heart. That was the last night I drank.’” —Men's Health
