This is a Froning movie review and in it, I’m taking notes as I watch the movie to provide as good a movie review as possible.
It’s funny that Rich Froning calls the location of the CrossFit ‘enemy territory,’ clearly he thinks of these competitions as going into a battle.
“Alright. Now I’m going to beat Sam. For America.” – Rich Froning
This is a laugh out loud moment. He is talking about how he caught up and passed her in the open workout with Samantha (Sam) Briggs. Sam is an athlete representing the United Kingdom.
It’s amazing that Rich Froning had the flu during the regionals. That was something I had never heard before. In the event they do a great job of building suspense around his battle with Scott Panchik. The regionals are competitions held all over the world. For example, one regional happens in Australia and there are a bunch in the USA. Rich is in the Central East which is probably the most competitive region in the world. Even when he approaches the event, he’s worried that he might not win.
It’s great that they talk a lot about his history and what it was like for him growing up. He talks about his relationship with all his male cousins and that gives us a hint as to why he’s so competitive. He was born into an environment that would really shape his competitive nature.
When the movie starts delving into his marriage and the birth of their daughter, it gets real. I don’t want to ruin anything about the movie because the way they tell the story is excellent. It’s crazy that he was married and had a daughter so quickly and just before the Games. I think he can just jump into things and have full confidence it’s going to work out. Incredible. This is making me really happy that I decided to write this Froning movie review.
Conclusion of the Froning Movie Review
Totally worth the $4.99 I spent to rent it on Amazon. I’m not going to discuss any more about the movie because I don’t want to ruin it for you.
