Rich Froning        

CrossFit Athlete, Coach & Christian Speaker

Rich Froning is an American professional CrossFit athlete known for his achievements participating in the CrossFit Games. He became the first person to win the title of "Fittest Man on Earth" four times with his first-place finish in the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 CrossFit Games. In 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019 he led team CrossFit Mayhem Freedom to the first-place finish in the Team category in the CrossFit Games.

Froning has not only been successful in the sport; he has been a pioneer in making a living off of the sport of CrossFit. Froning has accumulated significant sponsorships from brands like Reebok, Oakley, and Rogue Fitness. In early 2015, Reebok released a shoe designed, in part, by Froning.

Froning owns and operates the affiliate gym CrossFit Mayhem, located in Cookeville, Tennessee, and is a member of the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar Staff.

In 2019, Froning and his wife Hillary committed to using their success in CrossFit to create a non-profit organization to complement the success of CrossFit Mayhem. Mayhem Mission is that organization, and Mayhem Mission exists to serve people domestically and abroad.
