World’s ‘fittest man’ in Whitley Bay

Have your say

A Whitley Bay business welcomed three times Crossfit Games champion Rich Froning to the town last week.

Froning is named the ‘Fittest man in world’, in a sport where the individual events comprise of swimming, weightlifting, sprinting, rowing, even walking on your hands.

He attended a meet and greet at Deep Blue Supplements in Marden Road through his sponsors BSN, and the fans flocked from as far away from Teesside to meet him.

On a five-day tour of the UK, Froning has previously been doing training sessions in Manchester and Edinburgh, and stopped off in Newcastle to meet some his faithful followers.
