Mat Fraser May Be Moving To Cookeville
The Fittest Man On Earth may be moving to the hometown of the Fittest Man In History. Mat Fraser, two-time CrossFit Games champion, was recently on the CrossFit podcast. During the episode, Sevan Matossian asked Fraser about rumors of the athlete moving to Cookeville, Tennessee, where some dude named Richard Froning and his team live and train.

Fraser confirmed that he and his girlfriend were planning on moving to look for a high quality of life and better tax rates, and had narrowed his search down to Texas and the Volunteer State, when he realized he didn't have a network in Texas.

After discussing it with a financial advisor, he realized Tennessee would work perfectly -- and where better than Cookeville? There he can build the life he and Sammy want to live, he can set himself up very well financially, and he's got a built-in network of incredible athletes to train with on a regular basis.

Froning and Fraser are not strangers to training together, and have had a friendly relationship since Fraser's Games debut in 2014:

Having been to Cookeville, I can 100 percent confirm the sense of peace and comfort Mat and Sevan both said they felt while hanging out there. It's a beautiful place; while there, Fraser will be able to do what he does best with little to no distractions: commit to the process and train for the CrossFit Games.
