It is amazing to see how Rich's faith helped him to change his priorities. After putting God first, he was able to win the games twice(when this book was written), then twice more has an individual and once as a team. What an amazing way to glorify God by being the best at what he does.
What a great down to earth Man! Read once and listened once. I recommend it to all :)
If you are a Rich Fronin fan boy then by all means get it. But if you are someone looking to oush your own performace to the next leevel you will get nothing here. Fronin describes in detail his childhood, all his competitipns in minute detail and praises God. Thats it!! No motivation, inspiration, and hardly any training tips. so unless you are a die hard fan of his pass this one up. Long and tedious too
"Inspiration for Life... not just Crossfit"
Hearing about Rich's mental strength and focus was awesome... because at the end of the day that will out perform our physical strength.
This isn't some Rich Froning reveals the ultra secret ways of being the best at Crossfit. This books simply tells the story of Rich Froning journey into Crossfit while also teaching some cool life lessons. I enjoyed it.
"loved this audio book."
narrator was decent. easy to follow and didn't mind listen I g to him. the story and spiritual journey of Rich is what kept me tuned in though
"narrator didn't work for this story"
narrator didn't fit Rich Froning and for an avid crossfitter, didn't seem familiar with CF terminology so sounded awkward when talking about certain movements such as HSPUs.
I'm a father raising four boys and immediately want them to read this book. What an inspiring truth filled journey!!
"Not a crossfit training/strategy book"
I have a lot of respect for Rich Froning. He's obviously a beast physically and mentally, he's humble, and is strong in his convictions without coming across as preachy. However, this book is pretty pointless except to give his history and experience at the games. its high level and written at a third grade level. Not much depth or helpful insights.
Great story! You'll be inspired by Richards journey and the mindset needed to become a winner!
"A must for Crossfit/Froning fans"
Interesting, inspirational, enlightening
Where Rich recounts his fall at his first crossfit games and how it made him a better athlete, and all roundperson.
At his second crossfit games when he describes overcoming his previous failure.
Yes, it was very difficult to pull myself away from this audiobook
