David and Anthony Semerad on the benefits of working hard: "At the end of the day, when you start something new, it’s gonna be tough, but in the end you will just keep working hard, keep pushing, and once you get the hang of it, you will not get off-track anymore."

They juggle basketball practice in San Beda, school work, modelling stints, hosting duties with Lucy Torres on Celebrity Dance Battle, and even dating!

These boys sure have a lot on their plate.

The new endorsers of Cosmo Cee, David and Anthony Semerad, talk about how they stay in tip-top shape despite their busy schedules.

How to get a body like a model. With their fit physique, are the boys fond of showing off their bodies?

“Why not? Di ba we worked hard for it, so why not?”

The boys share their secrets to achieving their fab physiques: Proper diet and exercise, and no shortcuts.

“We have to watch our diet. I can eat whatever I want but I make sure I will work out. We have training everyday so we burn the calories.

“With our diet plan and our workout, we work mga 3 to 4 times a week at the gym. But we have basketball training araw-araw and our diet is mostly steamed foods, hindi fried, and we also eat vegetables.

“It's what's inside that counts, but taking care of your physical appearance won't hurt. So you not only look good, but also feel good because of a healthy lifestyle.”

Ligaw Advice. David is dating one of the most recognized beauties in the world, Miss World 2011 first princess Gwendolyn Ruais.

The model-basketball player shares how he won her heart.

“When I first met Gwen, I was super shy and nervous. I didn’t really know what to say to her.

“But I think you just have to be yourself, be confident. Gwen said that's what caught her attention. I was just me and I was honest.

“I told her what I felt and that’s what caught her attention. She and I have been together for over fifteen months now,” he recounts.


Anthony, who is single and available, is simply enjoying his freedom.

“Single to mingle. Just have fun. Enjoy lang,” he says.

No jealous fans. And what of David's fans? Do they get jealous of Gwen? What does he do to keep his lovelife separate from his fans’ zealous admiration?

“I don't feel any change [from the fans]. It’s still the same for me.

“When I’m with Gwen, they usually greet Gwen first. They ask me if they could take pictures, and they also ask Gwen. They like her as well,” David explains.

Rumors. David has dispelled rumors about his breakup with and engagement to Gwen.

“I actually heard that from Gwen. I heard we broke up—that was the first time. I don’t know how that came about or who created [the rumor], but we’re definitely going strong,” he affirms.

However, he and Gwen are not yet engaged, he quickly adds.
