For today’s average folk, celebrities and supermodels are the equivalent of gods and goddesses during the ancient times.
Their slender, well-toned bodies are hailed as the standards of beauty and fitness.
But losing weight is never easy even for these born-beautiful stars.
Just take a look at KC Concepcion, Heart Evangelista, G Tongi, Nikki Valdez, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Aubrey Miles, and Ina Raymundo.
These ladies, though naturally beautiful, still work hard to maintain their looks and keep a healthy, active lifestyle.
CELEBRITY WORKOUT SECRETS. It’s easy to say that KC Concepcion is a global charmer, with her long line of suitors, both Filipino and foreign.
Add to that, she is also the only Filipina included in the list of “Sexiest International Actresses You Haven’t Heard Of,” made by the US magazine Complex this year.
The actress-host recently went from hot to hotter, as she dropped 16 pounds in just three months through an exercise that is a mix of Pilates, yoga, and Physique 57—a movement that is very popular in New York.
Plana Forma, as this combination exercise is called, has indeed helped KC lose weight and, at the same time, tone her body.
She’s also gone through inner reformation by relaxing her mind and learning the proper way of breathing through Plana Forma Ashtanga yoga.
Like KC, Tessa Prieto-Valdes is also a big fan of Ashtanga yoga.
While she runs, bikes, and does Pilates on a regular basis, Tessa adds yoga to her workout regimen to help tone and sculpt her muscles.
Also, the 50-year-old fashion, society, and showbiz figure uses yoga to strengthen her core and correct her body alignment.
Meanwhile, Heart Evangelista surprised the public when she posed for Esquire Philippines Magazine last April.
The Kapuso star, who is usually seen in goody-good-girl fashion revealed a sexier image, and a hotter body too!
She credits dancing as her fun way of getting in shape, and she gets to do that in Zumba Class at Plana Forma.
The simple yet high-energy routines of Zumba allows you to burn crazy amounts of calories while having fun. It’s true!
Just look at another Zumba dancer, Ina Raymundo-Poturnak, who makes every mother out there envious—maybe even suicidal.
Seriously, is it even legal to be a mother of five and look hot as she does?
Ina says, “Zumba is addictive!” And for a woman like her, who has to juggle work and family life, dancing while burning fats (if she even has one ounce in her body) is the ultimate way to relieve stress.
This is also the secret behind Nikki Valdez’s youthful looks.Her 360-image allows her to play a variety of roles—from funny best friend to femme fatale.
At 34, it would be hard for an actress to fit into a sweetheart character. But not for Nikki.
Her Zumba dance workout has allowed her to become more fit, toned, and flexible.
She considers it to be the best cardio exercise, and a fun and energetic way to lose extra pounds.
Another sexy mom to be envied is Giselle Tongi-Walters.
After spending years away in Los Angeles and giving birth to two kids, it would’ve been impossible for G to steal the spotlight out of younger stars. But she did!
The actress-host-model proved her strong star appeal when she returned to the spotlight last year looking lean and sexy.
Her secret: the Plana Forma 57-minute workout, which she loves because of its challenging and cardio-intensive moves.
As a former dancer, G also enjoys doing Stretch classes, which are very meticulous on proper alignment.
When combined, the workouts yield sculpted thighs, seats, and triceps.
Lastly, Aubrey Miles another mother of two, also manages to maintain her figure with exercise and sports.
She likes to swim, climb walls, and play tennis whenever she can, to keep her prime form.
She also takes regular Plana Forma classes to strengthen her core and tone her muscles.
You too can get you dream body by visitng Plana Forma studios located at the 6th floor of Jecoprime Building, 20th Drive, McKinley Business Park, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City; and at Unit 2G-21 at the ground floor of Centris Walk EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, Diliman, QC.
