Mikko Salo

A native of Pori, Finland, Mikko Salo claimed the title of “Fittest Man on Earth” by winning the 2009 CrossFit Games in convincing fashion. His newfound fame soon shined a light on his legendary workout routine, revolutionizing how countless athletes approached their own training in the years that followed.

In more recent years, Salo—slowed by a series of unfortunate injuries—has still been working as a firefighter by day and training and coaching CrossFit by night in his native Finland. One of his top students is fellow countryman and Rogue athlete Jonne Koski, whom Mikko helped guide to a pair of Regional titles in 2014 and 2015.
