Ben Smith

Since debuting as the youngest competitor (19 years old) at the very first CrossFit Games, Ben Smith has gone to be a perennial force in the event, earning three Top 10 finishes and two podium finishes (3rd place in 2011 and 2013). To stay competitive as the sport of CrossFit has evolved, Smith usually trains two to three times a day before each of the classes he coaches at his CrossFit box. His training is not on a set schedule, which Smith believes is one of the reasons he’s continued to succeed in the sport-- keeping everything constantly varied without a set plan.

Aside from training, Ben is the owner and coach at CrossFit Krypton in Chesapeake, Virginia, and is marrying his high school sweetheart Noelle in the Fall of 2014.
