Jean Carlo Picardo

How long have you been Crossfitting?
About a year and a few months 
What is your occupation?
                Digital Marketing Specialist
Where are you from?
                Originally from Costa Rica 
How did you hear about CrossFit Strong?
                 I was just searching for the best cf Box  in town and I found it!
How have you seen yourself change - mentally or physically - since being a part of CFS?
      I think the biggest change has been my mentality. Everyday I get to workout with amazing Athletes that help me get better and push through my own limits.

What are some of your goals that you have for yourself in the next year?
         Consistent nutrition, learn Russian, keep getting better every day!
How do you see CrossFit as different from other programs?
For me CF is about constantly getting out of my comfort zones and improving myself daily but in a bigger picture I think what makes Crossfit special is the people, you are working out for yourself but you are actually interacting with others at the same time. 
It’s a big competitive family 
Did you think a sport of elite fitness would ever be for you?
Yeah, but maybe I didn’t want to put the effort that goes with it  before. 
How can other people relate to your story?
Well I am not Froning or Frazer lol and I’m not trying to be them either but I always give my max effort even if that means just finishing a workout. I like to think that as long as I am physically able to do a workout, i will do it . Maybe it’s a workout that seems hard or has a movement Im not good at, but I rather be last in Rx than First in Scale
What is something that no knows about you and you wouldn't mind sharing?
  Hmm , I don’t know that I have something that nobody knows but maybe some people don’t know that I have a daughter  her name is Norah and she is everything to me
What is the dumbest thing you have heard at CFS?
I think maybe someone saying they would never be able to get  muscle ups or DU's
What is the funniest thing you have seen done at CFS?
Haha Leo using the equivalent of 3 buckets of chalk during a bar muscle up workout... I gotta say the ending was very artistic lo
What is your most memorable moment here?
My first open workout at strong. The environment, the people, the energy I don’t even remember how I did on that workout but I had an amazing time
