Who is it and why?

For me it's probably Mikko Salo, the winner of the 2009 Crossfit games. Dude is like 5'9 and 175lbs but he's an absolute monster. He pulled 495lbs on deadlift ladder right after a 4 mile trail run at the 2009 games. Link is here.

Here's a video of him doing the "King Kong" workout, which is a 20 minute amrap (as many rounds as possible) of:

1 deadlift @ 455lbs
2 muscle ups
3 squat cleans @ 250lbs
4 handstand pushups

He got 11 rounds.

And here he is with Graham Holberg, 2010 Games winner, doing 5 power snatches @ 135 for 50 reps. It's cool to watch Graham totally run out of gas near the end and he seems totally unaffected, lol.

So who is your fitness idol?

For me it's Chrissie Wellington. She's what every professional athlete should be.
She is a phenomenal athlete and has won the IM Championships both times she's done it, beating 75% of the mens pro field at the same time. She is also known to hang out at the finish line to greet the age groupers all the way up till the midnight cutoff (after finishing 8 hours before. Always smiling, and always gracious.

I'm guessing we're talking about athletic accomplishments and not physical appearance then?

For me, no one. \:\)

Physical appearance is fine, so you can do bodybuilders and whatnot if you want. \:\)

Chris Spealer. Considering he is around 135lbs the dude is a machine.
