VIDEO – ONE BENCH PRESS AT A TIME –  

May 5, 2022 – His wake up call came when he got yet another drinking citation at 17, bringing it home to his father who was so used to the summons that he didn’t react. Fraser remembers thinking, “I can’t keep up these habits and call myself an elite athlete.” “I just said right then and there, ‘Alright, I won’t touch alcohol again,’” he says.

Fraser says sobriety became easier once he developed safe, productive habits to replace excessive drinking, carving out an identity and personality not affiliated with alcohol. He was no longer “The Party Guy,” but rather the guy set on giving his all to his CrossFit and lifting career.

“Having this addictive personality can be a benefit if I’m addicted to things that have a positive outcome,” he says in the video. “I’m not just an alcoholic. I’m a -holic. Anything I do, I’m going to do to the extreme.”
