Jean Etcheverry

Hometown: I was born in Hartford, Conn. but grew up in Miami, FL

Age: 38

Hobbies or Interest outside of CrossFit: I was part of the Naples Hammerhead (Rugby Team), but school has had me pretty tied up for the last two years.

How long have you been at CFTB: I originally joined back in 2010 and was at CFTB for about three years but I recently returned about four or five months ago.

Favorite WOD or movements: I enjoy anything that I am not good at.

Tell us about your fitness journey: I have been involved with sports since I was a young boy: started playing Jai-alai (8 years old); then basketball (11-14 years old); then football (14-21 years old) and finally, rugby (22-35 years old).

How has your fitness journey changed since joining CFTB? My fitness since I joined CFTB has improved dramatically, I still have a long way to go, but feel like a completely different person. I mean that in a good way.

Favorite memory at CFTB: Working out without power after Hurricane Irma.

Any advice for new members or people thinking about trying CrossFit: Don’t think twice about it, it is hard at first but does not get any easier and that is the part you will begin to enjoy most.
