Physical Strength Can Only Take You So Far
Reigning CrossFit World Champion Rich Froning is “The Fittest Man on Earth.” He’s fast. He’s strong. And he’s incredibly disciplined. But it takes more than physical strength to compete and win at an elite level. It takes incredible mental and spiritual toughness as well. And it is the precise balance of all three that makes Rich Froning a champion.
In First, readers come alongside Rich as he trains for and competes in back-to-back-to-back CrossFit World Championships. Along the way, Rich shares invaluable training tips, motivational techniques, and spiritual insights that, in keeping with the CrossFit philosophy, will prepare you to respond to any real-life physical, mental and spiritual challenge.
I am not a cross fit person, but found out about it from a work colleague. I watched the games last year and saw Rich Froning win his 2nd straight championship.
I bought the book out of mostly curiosity, to see what went on. I was majorly surprised on how this was not just a book about Cross-fit, but about a man's journey into different stages of his life, and how he handles it. From job choices, family tragedies, marriage, to instant fame. And through it all, he found who had been with him all of his life. GOD.
Read this book, it is funny, serious, and will make you ask yourself.... what am I doing
Thank you for writing this Froning. You are an inspiration to so many people. God Bless you and your family
One of the best books I have ever read.
