James's Favorite Gear
Massachusetts native James Hobart, aka “The Baby Faced Killer,” is a two-time podium finisher in Northeast Regionals and a member of the 2015 and 2016 CrossFit Games team champions, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom.
Despite a solid showing as an individual competitor in 2014, Hobart was happy to shift back to the team ranks, where he’d competed from 2011-2013, winning an Affiliate Cup title in the process. With Team CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, James also got to work alongside his friend and Games legend Rich Froning, Jr., as their dynamic group has run roughshod over the field in Carson, CA.
Hobart skied competitively and played soccer and lacrosse in high school. With a build not unlike Froning’s (5’8”, 185 LB), his physical attributes proved well suited to the unique physical demands of CrossFit. His drive and determination, however, are what have truly helped set him apart.
