From being that lanky teenager from General Santos City, South Cotabato during his Pinoy Big Brother days, we have witnessed how A Soldier’s Heart lead star Gerald Anderson has grown into becoming one of the most bankable heartthrobs in the local entertainment scene.
Apart from compelling us with his unmistakable versatility and brilliant acting chops that we’ve seen in his teleserye and movie portrayals, he’s undoubtedly also swooning us with his unmistakable handsomeness and finely-chiseled bod.
However, we all know that achieving a healthy and fit physique does not happen overnight nor be easily done. In an interview with PUSH last year, the 31-year-old actor imparted that he undergoes rigorous and extensive workouts every day, especially when he has projects. But more than exercising his body, he divulged that he had to change his mentality with regards to keeping his body in shape, too.
“I think more than ‘yong parts ng body ko, more on ‘yong performance ko sa bawat workout, I think ‘yong sikreto do’n is kung paano mo talunin ‘yong last workout mo or ‘yong last personal record mo. ‘Yon ‘yong gusto ko i-promote e. Kasi dati gano’n ako e, lalo ‘yong sa showbiz na alam ko maghuhubad ako bukas, may eksena ako, may love scene ako. Kailangan maganda katawan. Parang hindi siya pang-matagalan [na goal]. Pero kung may goal ka na gusto mo talunin ‘yong sarili mo, ‘yon ‘yong mas may weight,” Gerald related.
Aside from hitting the gym, we all know that he’s into basketball as well as he plays for the Marikina Shoemasters team of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League.
Along with his strenuous workouts, PBB’s “Amboy Hottie ng GenSan” also divulged having disciplined diet. Being a health buff, he decided to put up his own gym early last year which, according to him, is his way of encouraging people to live healthier lives as well.
“’Yon yung gusto ko i-share sa tao – kung paano ‘yong naging lifestyle ko, kung ano ‘yong tumulong sa akin para kahit papaano marating ko ‘yong narating ko ngayon dahil din sa third floor ng bahay ko,” he said.
