James Hobart

Massachusetts native James Hobart, aka “The Baby Faced Killer,” is a three-time podium finisher in Northeast Regionals and a member of the 2011 Affiliate Cup Champions, Team CrossFit New England. In 2014, Hobart returned to individual competition after a three-year absence, training with reigning champion Rich Froning throughout the winter. His efforts paid off with a 2nd place finish in Regionals and 21st overall finish at the CrossFit Games— where he had top ten showings in the Double Grace and Sprint Sled-2.

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. But it’s his drive and determination that have made him an elite competitor.

James officially joined the Rogue Athlete Team in 2014.
