Remember the boyish “kuya” from the latest Magnolia Cheeze TVC? That’s JC Lingad, financial consultant and commercial model who has appeared in print and TV commercials for brands like Smart, Emperador, Lucky Me, among others. He is also the one of the latest additions to Primal Ape’s growing roster of member athletes.
In an industry where looks are very important, JC understands the need to stay physically fit to keep land projects. While this was his primary reason for joining Primal Ape CrossFit, what he liked best about his experience is that “there’s always something new to do each day. “The WODs never get boring.”, as JC recalls a memorable WOD where teams worked together to lift and flip a 500 lb tractor tire across the floor.
JC trains 5 to 6 times a week schedule permiting. he enjoys Bootcamp, Rowing, Gymnastics and Yoga classes. This constancy, grit, and determination paid off - resulting in 10 lbs of weight loss in a matter of 4 weeks. Though admiting that some WODs are challenging, seeing progress both on the scale and in the mirror keeps him determined.
JC is not just about keeping fit. He is also an active member of his church’s youth group, and choir; believing in balancing fitness with activties that build values and character. This balance is also reflected in his philosophy in life, where “you have to stay focused, disciplined and consistent to achieve goals but while remaining kind and humble in the process. What comes around goes around.” JC chimes in.
