Depending on the circles you run in, Ben Smith might not be a name you recognize. To those participating in Crossfit, he's a household name.

Depending on the circles you run in, Ben Smith might not be a name you recognize. To those participating in Crossfit, he's a household name. He has been a serious competitor in the Crossfit games for years, and actually won them in 2015. The truth is, most people probably don't have a grasp on what the journey looks like in getting to that winner's podium. We were approached by our friend Tim at Beyond the Whiteboard with interest in creating a piece that would succinctly showcase Ben's story of climbing the ladder of success. Using found footage of his days training in the garage, his first Crossfit Games, and when he steps to the 1st place podium, we knit something together that we're proud of, and think did Ben some justice for all of his hard work.
