Gerald Anderson shares sports shoe collection, routine and tips for keeping fit

For a baller like Gerald Anderson, the kind of shoes he wears is a vital part of his sports arsenal. It affects how he becomes a power player on the court. Thus, he has quite a collection of sportswear. Check out this episode of Kapamilya Chat!

Gerald considers one of his pairs from the Kobe Bryant collection, as his go-to training footwear. “Ang problema dahil medyo intense at mahaba ‘yung training ko, nababasa siya.” He sniffed the shoes and said, “Actually, basa pa siya, eh kasi nag-training ako kanina.”

Therefore, he always has to bring another pair. “Kailangan two shoes a day kasi ‘pag nabasa ito, ang hirap gamitin, eh madulas na.”

Gerald is a gym buff. He works out six hours a day since the second round of ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine). For that, there’s a pair which he considers his ultimate buddy. “Ang sarap gamitin nito. Everyday shoe mo lang – reliable, comfortable, the best.”

As if exercising six hours daily is not enough, he still takes on another round of training just in time for sunset, “Dahil ECQ ngayon at wala tayong magawa, nagte-trainig ulit ako sa hapon bago mag-curfew.” For that, his pick is another Kobe pair in different color.

Gerald loves to sweat it out as his way of busting stress and keeping in shape. He said working out doesn’t require a full-facility gym. You don’t need to purchase equipment, either. Gerald, for instance, would improvise to squeeze in fitness time on the set of Init sa Magdamag. “Minsan ‘yung ilaw ng taping binubuhat ko, mga water jug. Kung gusto, dapat may paraan.

He advised everyone to make exercise a priority especially during the pandemic. He said working out for thirty minutes twice a day will be good enough. You may begin by doing basic routines like push-ups, crunches, dumbbells, and jump rope.

Don’t fail to watch IInit sa Magdamag, weeknights after Huwag Kang Mangamba, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
