John Lloyd Cruz feels energized whenever he goes biking

Jun 8, 2010
"Kapag hindi ako nakakapag-bike parang I feel weak. Kailangan na, e. Parang it gives me a certain energy kapag nakakapag-bike ako," John Lloyd Cruz says about the benefits he gets from trail biking.

John Lloyd Cruz is turning 27 this month and he admits he's not getting any younger. So, part of his priorities now is to keep his body fit by biking regularly.

"If I may mention lang at this point, 'yong talagang pagiging fit, hindi siya obligasyon sa akin. I wanna be fit. Kasi, I owe it to myself now. I'm 26 now, I'm not getting any younger," says the three-time Box Office King in an interview during the press launch of his new Jack n' Jill Magic endorsement recently.

The Kapamilya actor said he may not have a well-sculpted body, but he's happy with it and he wants to keep it that way.

He explained to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Sabi nila kasi after 25, kung ano ang body mo, 'yon na ang body mo for the rest of your life. Talagang dapat alagaan mo ang katawan mo. 'Yong health and fitness mo, talagang dapat if not five, nasa top three priorities mo."

So, how does John Lloyd avoid gaining unwanted weight? The award-winning actor turns to biking.

John Lloyd was introduced into this new hobby a year ago while he was hanging out with his cousins. He recalled, "Parang one afternoon, magkakasama kami ng pinsan ko sa bahay, nasa gazebo kami nila. Nagkukuwentuhan kami, pumasok nga 'yong, ''Yong kaibigan ko nagba-bike ngayon. Bike tayo.' So, may mga ilang bike shops ang napuntahan namin, mga tatlo. 'Yong last 'yong kay Manu (Sandejas) sa White Plains (Knobbies in Quezon City). Doon na, doon ko na nahanap 'yong gusto ko."

Since then, the local celebrity added biking to his busy showbiz schedule.

"Kapag hindi ako nakakapag-bike parang I feel weak. Kailangan na, e. Parang it gives me a certain energy kapag nakakapag-bike ako," said John Lloyd.

John Lloyd also mentioned that whenever he sets his feet on the pedals, he doesn't feel guilty when he eats too much after a workout.

"In a week, if I know na I have time to actually go biking or pilates, medyo ina-allow ko naman ang sarili ko na kumain leisurely. Pero kapag alam kong medyo tight ang schedule ko, I just try to watch what I eat kasi wala kang time to work out," he said.

The Star Magic talent usually goes trail biking in San Mateo, which is actually his favorite spot. "Doon ako madalas kasi malapit sa house ko and maraming trails. Iba-iba, like, from basic [to] medyo difficult and medyo unbelievable," he added.

John Lloyd says he used to go to the gym to keep his weight, but the current fad among celebrities didn't suit him.

"'Yong gym kasi, it didn't work for me," he said. "Well, alam mo, kanya-kanya lang naman talaga 'yan. May mga tao na para sa kanila 'yong they work out sa gym, they lift weights. Nagkataon lang na hindi 'yon para sa akin."
