This is a brilliant book. I read this over the space of a couple of evenings, if it weren't for other commitments I would have read it quicker.

I would have given this 5 stars, but as a non-Christian there were a few chapters that weren't relevant to me. Although saying this, it was nice to have an insight in to Rich`s faith and beliefs.

It's very uplifting to see someone with a very normal background becoming a Crossfit champion. It goes to show that hard work pays off and can reward you in many ways.

Overall a must for those involved in Crossfit or merely just interested to see what it takes to be named 'the fittest man in the world'.

As the title reads, such a good book to see a snippet of his life and preparation - physically and spiritually. An atheist has now been intrigued!!

Really interested in Crossfit of late and decided to give this book a read to get an insight into an Elite Crossfitter & was very impressed by Rich in how he goes about competing & how strong his faith is. It has really made me look at how I live my own life & on what aspects of it I would like to improve!!

A very good read from not only an exceptional athlete but a very humble human being, if there were more people like Rich Froning in this world then it would be a much better place. He is the type of role model I want for my children, not the overpaid footballers who lose touch with reality because of fame. Thank you Rich for staying grounded, a very good read.
