3. Cycling.

4. Dancing.

Whether you enroll in dance class or follow instructional videos on Youtube or the DVD with your mom, dancing is one exercise that doesn’t feel like it at all! Move, sway and groove to that music, shake your body, release all that inhibition and go all out  like Elmo Magalona! Ain’t it fun?

5. Mountain climbing.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a one hour trek or a six hour hike, we can all agree on one thing — it’s workout and sightseeing in one! Isn’t nature a wonderful bonus in getting fit? Girlie Benitez knows.

6. Mixed Martial Arts.

Who says MMA is only for guys? Our badass girl Jinri Park regularly does  Jiujitsu and Muay Thai as her workout! Aside from losing the pounds, you’ll learn how to protect yourself in case of emergency. Handy!


7. Boxing.

Or if you think MMA is too hard, boxing is the next best option. 1, 2, 3, punch! Besties Andrea Torres and Valeen Monntenegro look happy post-boxing!

8. Basketball.

This good ol’ sport is a classic. Weekends with the dudes are for ball, before you all sit down on your couch to watch NBA. Here’s Paolo Paraiso on defense!

Basketball naman. 3×3 #backyardball at @titanlovecourt ! Come watch the games & enjoy a pop up @backyard_ph stall.

Everyone has at least tried surfing once in their lives. If this is your chosen activity, it’s time to welcome abs in your life. Don’t you ever wonder how those surfers (and Sam Pinto) get those lean, sexy bods? You’re about to find out!
