Time flies so fast. It's already the end of August, and in just one week we'll be ushering in September--which only means one thing: it's practically the Christmas season! (In the Philippines, that is.)
If you're looking for #fitspiration before the holiday festivities begin, then look no further--we rounded up the best Instagram photos from seven Pinoy actors that will kickstart your fitness journey.
Who knows, come Christmastime, you'll be able to share some pandesal, too!
1.) Matteo Guidicelli

It's no secret that Matteo Guidicelli is a fitness buff. The half-Italian actor is a dedicated triathlete, frequently participating in events like the recent Ironman triathlon event in Cebu. Aside from maintaining a proper diet, Matteo also finds the time to exercise every day. He told the Philippine Tatler back in 2017: "I begin my day with either a swim, bike or run session."
2.) Jak Roberto

Ever since he starred in the primetime romcom Meant to Be, Kapuso actor Jak Roberto has become one of today's hottest stars--and part of it might have to do with his toned abs. The young actor has even been given the title "Pambansang Abs" by some of his fans! To maintain his good figure, Jak dedicates a considerable amount of time lifting weights and doing push-ups. It's certainly paid off for him!
3.) Marco Gumabao

Marco Gumabao doesn't shy away from posting shirtless IG photos. That's because the 24-year-old actor worked extra hard to get a body that anyone could flaunt confidently. Fans will know that he was chubby when he first appeared in Luv U, the teen-oriented show that aired from 2012-2016. But with his maturity came discipline, motivation, and not to mention a great bod!
4.) Clint Bondad

With his good looks, great body, and evident sense of humor, Clint Bondad might just be every girl's dream boyfriend. Unfortunately, he's already taken--by none other than Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray. But lucky for us, he isn't shy about flaunting his muscles--and the mean workouts he did to get them. Hint: it's a lot of weighlifting!
5.) Ruru Madrid

Before he was cast in Encantadia, Ruru Madrid was a lanky, bedimpled teen playing boy-next-door roles. Now he's a full-fledged mature actor whose recent work includes leading roles in Alyas Robin Hood and Sherlock Jr. He keeps fit by following the ketogenic diet, and of course, a strict exercise routine laid out by a personal trainer.
6.) Zeus Collins

If going to the gym is not your thing, maybe you should take a similar approach to Zeus Collins. A member of the dance group Hashtags, Zeus is frequently in the studio honing his dance skills and working his core in the process. It also helps that he steps on the hard court for the occasional game of basketball.
7.) Derrick Monasterio

Just a few weeks ago, Derrick Monasterio posted a shirtless photo of him with the caption: "All those waking up @ 2 am to jog are all worth it... naaah just good lighting haha." He may have been joking, but we're inclined to believe it's partly the truth. After all, you don't bulk up like that by doing nothing!
