And we have morethese hunks get fit through activities done outside conventional gyms. Push machines to the backseat sometime, because these celebrity-approved alternatives are guaranteed to help you achieve your desired form:


1. Surfing. Practice your balance to perfect your stance and indulge on surfing, just like Jericho Rosales! It works your arms, shoulders, back, core, and legswhich means you get an overall workout! It's a great stress-reliever, too (imagine paddling on the sea for hours). Top sites for surfing: Aside from Baler and La Union, Camarines Sur, Siargao, and Pagudpud are your best bets! But for beginners, do your trials at wave pools like what Club Manila East in Taytay offers.


2. Basketball. Aside from hosting, Robi Domingo is able to lead an active, well-rounded life. Thanks to his job, he's able to do a lot of thrilling workout activities like water sports and biking, to name a few. But recently, during the Star Magic Games 2016, he turned to man's favorite sportbasketballeven trying to beat former Lady Eagle volleybelle and sweetheart Gretchen Ho at a practice sesh (Awwww)! Shoot that ball: At your nearest basketball court. Unleash your inner baller and challenge the boys (or the girls) to a game. If trying for the first time (you've been cheering at the sidelines for yearsit's time to conquer the court), ask an older brother or your guy bestfriend to teach you the basics.
