Angelo Gabriel Amante

ANGELO GABRIEL AMANTE – Personal Trainer at Fitness 360 Fitness Philosophy: “Life is too short to be weak.” What he does: I do a hybrid of traditional isolation, HIIT (High Intensity interval training), and Cross Fit workouts. I exercise 5-6 times a week. Awareness to my diet based on my trainings is the main key. What he eats: No special diet; just awareness. When I eat a lot I work out a lot; when I workout hard, I eat hard (but clean non-fatty foods) and I stray away from fast food restaurants. On my cheat days, I like to eat the ultimate “bro” food: pizza!

Gerald Calica Danao

I am the first and only Filipino who finished the Wadi Bih Ultra-marathon solo category twice. Prior to running, I used to weigh 83 kgs. Now I’m 67 kgs and it even went down to 62 kgs during marathon season. I have become more confident with my new self. I have endeavored to let other people know that there are many options to attain the level of fitness that they want to achieve.

Yvonne Heruela I currently work as receptionist in a fitness company. Considering the industry I worked for, it’s quite surprising that I haven’t really jumped into the workout craze, though I occasionally do sit-ups and run on the treadmill. I watch my food as I am scared to become chunky as it is not ideal in relation to my petite height of 5”1.

 Crison Martesio I hit the gym 4 to 5 times a week for an hour. My fridge is always stacked with fruits, veggies and juice of different flavors. My fitness advice is to never forget to exercise. Do not deprive yourself, because in moderation there is abundance
