For Olivia, having a hot body means having focus. Instead of working out your entire body and completely tiring yourself out, she recommends having ‘arm days’, ‘leg days’, abs days. And get this –Olivia doesn’t follow any fancy diet plan. “I believe it’s about eating healthy, not less!”, she points out. “If you know eating a certain food is going to make you unhappy about yourself, then substitute it with food that will make you feel better.”
It’s important to keep fit if you want to bag covetable roles like Juancho has. His regimen consists of a 3-day a week workout and –basketball. Juancho hits the court with his friends whenever he can. “It’s also a way of relieving stress.”, he shares, as the demands of showbusiness can be quite intense. He veers away from carbs at night. “But if there’s something that I really like to dig into, it’s a good steak.”, he chuckles. “Anything protein, really.”

Even with his hectic schedule, Renzo maintains a gym junkie status –working out an hour and a half 3 to 5 times a week, focusing on one muscle group per session. His diet isn’t as strict though. He eats almost anything he wants during breakfast. He eats heavy in the morning and then tapers down his food intake at lunch and dinner. His reason: “Being fit is not just about having a good-looking body. It’s about feeling good, too!”

It’s not a strenuous exercise, but it does good strengthening her abs, helping her lower back, even allowing her to discover muscles she never knew she had. Rissa muses, “I love it because it keeps me long and lean. I feel I’m at my strongest, fittest, and slimmest now.”
