All kinds of athletes and celebrities hang out at Radio Row. One of them this year was Rich Froning, the "Fittest Man in the World." (I was determined to interview him, since I also claim the same title, as you can clearly see from the video playbox below.)

Froning's working with Reebok to prepare for the 2012 Crossfit Games, which take place in July. Crossfit, as far as I understand, is making sure you're in shape across many different sports. Like, you don't want to be a weightlifting monster who can't run 400 yards. And you don't want to be a dude who can run a marathon but can't do a pushup. Etc.

Froning breaks down what it means to be a Crossfit athlete, what kind of exercises he does and what it's like to train on the Empire State Building. (!)
