OPT: James Fitzgerald (Episode 1) - The 1st Fittest on Earth
Before CrossFit exploded into a televised competitive sport, James Fitzgerald would post his workout times on the CrossFit website under the moniker OPT. He was determined to learn the moves and earn the fastest times.
Then in 2007, 70 athletes -- among them names like Brett Marshall, Josh Everett, and Chris Spealler -- gathered from all over the country to compete in the inaugural CrossFit Games in Aromas, California
OPT would take home the title that year as Fittest on Earth.
