Training Facility: Independent-His Garage
There is magic in Ben Smith's garage. There have been rumors of super strong magnets in the fridge next to the rack where he trains. Some say there is super power in the shiny, silver bag of
that Ben counts on to help his body recover from his multiple daily workouts. Whatever the magic is, at the age of 22 Ben Smith has already qualified for three CrossFit Games. The winner of this years
has made a name for himself training his garage and back yard in Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. The internet is littered with videos of Ben overhead squatting 300+ in front of a big, white fridge and doing Open WOD pull ups on a bar between two trees in his back yard.
Ben started using Progenex in his preparation for the 2010
and so far it has been a match made in heaven. Ben lifts incredible amounts of weight in short periods of time and Progenex makes sure that his muscles are ready for the next challenge.
Whether it be the fridge full of Progenex or just an other worldly skill set and dedication to his craft, Ben Smith is a CrossFit juggernaut. If you're looking for the 22 year old phenom in July, chances are pretty good he'll be standing on the podium at the CrossFit Games.
