The "Fittest Man on Earth" is 26, stands at 5 feet, 9 inches, weighs 195 pounds, and is on fire for Jesus. "I put Christ first and everything else fell into place," Rich Froning, Jr., who took his third victory in the 2013 CrossFit games earlier this year, told The Christian Post in a Tuesday interview. In June, he released a memoir, First: What It Takes To Win, where he shared "the secret to his own success both in and out of the gym": his faith.
Froning hasn't always won these competitions, however, and he hasn't always put Christ first. In the 2010 games, he fell short, and realized that he needed God's strength to win the prize.
