Naging masaya at exciting para kay Joshua Aquino ang paggawa ng kanyang bagong TV commercial para sa San Marino Corned Tuna.
Nakasama niya kasi rito, bukod sa kanyang ina na si Kris Aquino at kapatid na si Bimby, ang dalawa pa sa maituturing na “favorite people” niya—sina Coach Chappy Challanta at Coach Evan Grabador.
Sabi nga ni Kris, nang malaman ni Josh na may gagawin itong TVC kunsaan siya ang magiging bida, “Josh was excited because of his workout coaches being part of the TVC.
"He loves Coach Chappy & Coach Evan & he's super PROUD of his body transformation.”
Si Coach Chappy ang circuit trainer ni Josh at si Coach Evan naman ang swimming instructor niya.
CIRCUIT TRAINING. Bilang circuit trainer, ano ang ginagawang hakbang ni Coach Chappy para mag-enjoy at maging seryoso si Josh sa kanyang training?
Ayon kay Coach Chappy, “Josh has a great support system. Everyone in his team (family, yayas, PSG, etc.) want to see him succeed, so I recruited everyone's help to keep reminding him that health should be a priority.
“It took a while to ingrain the idea, but with time, his choices became automatic. In exercise, I make it fun for him. We have games and contests and goals.”
Mahigit dalawang taon na rin mula nang magsimulang i-train ni Coach Chappy si Josh, at sa loob ng panahon na iyon, nasa 120 lbs na raw ang nabawas sa timbang ng panganay ni Kris.
Ano ang mga nakita niyang pagbabago o epekto kay Josh ng ginawa nitong training?
“The most obvious effect is his fat loss, but I see that as a very cool side effect of his training.
“I trained him to be more mobile and functional in everyday life. Your body will adapt to mobility and functionality, so you see his weight loss.
“The best effect for me is seeing him actually move better and be healthier. Two years ago, he couldn't even run straight. Now, a 10k run is routine.”
SWIMMING. Samantala, three times a week naman kung mag-swimming lesson si Josh, pero nagagawa pa raw ni Coach Evan na maging four times a week ito.
May anim na buwan na rin daw simula nang i-train ni Coach Evan si Josh sa swimming.
Kumusta ang experience niya sa pagti-train kay Josh?
“It’s hard because he lacks in motor skills and adaption, which we continue to develop. It’s easy because he follows.
“You just need creativity to execute swim drills to meet your goal for the day.”
Hindi rin daw naging mahirap para kay Coach Evan na i-motivate si Josh sa pagti-training nito.
“Josh is very sweet and gentle. One thing for sure, he wants to please everybody. That's his motivation.
“Every time we finished swim sets, he always asked me, ‘Coach, happy ka?’ Or even before doing our workouts he will say, ‘I will swim good today’ para sasabihin ni Mama, Ate Bincai (Joshua's yaya), or he will enumerate persons involved in his life as many as he can, na ‘Good job ako!’
“But he really does love eating my cereals after training!”
Ang pagkakaroon ng self-discipline ang isa sa nakita ni Coach Evan na magandang epekto kay Josh ng ilang buwan nitong pagsu-swimming.
Aniya, “He develops self-discipline. We do the training in the morning, so he has to sleep early.
“And he also has a swimming family in La Salle Greenhills (Green Archers Swim Club), which he trains with the team, at least two times a week.
“Through this, [they] interact and socialize with each other.”
Parehong naniniwala sina Coach Chappy and Coach Evan na ang pagwu-workout ay dapat nasusuportahan ng healthy food, gaya ng mga pagkaing may Omega3, tulad ng produktong ine-endorso ni Joshua ngayon.
