Finally, the episode with the legend himself, Mat Fraser.
This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, Mat joins in on the fun to discuss his upbringing and his eventual rise to the top of the CrossFit podium. Unlike other interviews, Mat spends more time sharing stories from behind the scenes than he does about winning his medals. Truth be told, Mat is a fantastic storyteller, and lucky for you he’s got plenty of them. Tune in to hear more about the man behind the medals, as we get a closer look at his early battles with drugs and alcohol, growing up with Olympian parents and the infamous Home Depot story from the 2014 Games.
