It's one thing to have a personal fitness trainer. What if you find one who helps you keep your goals in sight, is a good friend, can be a bro, and is not half bad-looking either? Anne Curtis, Solenn Heussaff, and Isabelle Daza sure hit the jackpot in their trusted fitness trainer, Arnold Aninion.
As a fitness professional and body builder himself, beyond trainer mode Arnold is also quite inspiring. Let us count the ways (for starters, just look at those guns!)...
He challenges himself and not just his clients. Arnold puts in the hours, days, and weeks to maintain his body. Every fitness professional knows when you slack off for just one day or cut back one time on a set schedule, it can begin a trail towards decline.
He keeps good company around to stay motivated, like Eric Tai. You know that saying "birds of a feather flock together"? That saying couldn't be more true when you talk about Arnold Aninion and massive Eric Tai who were former rugby teammates on the Philippine team (Volcanoes) and have been proverbial gym buddies since like, forever. Iron sharpens iron, so they say. Oh, and they also make a hilarious pair sometimes.
He’s goal-oriented and walks the talk himself. In 2015, Arnold Aninion won the first ever Mr. Muscle and Fitness Philippines bodybuilding competition. He's inspired people ever since to stick to plans that they make for themselves and to make sure they're plans that you believe you can personally attain.
He knows a good, healthy meal when he sees one. In fitness, there's a saying that goes like this: "Eat for the body you want, not for the body you have." Clean eating is all about looking forward towards what you're building, not just about what you want right now. Arnold Aninion obviously understands this.
He’s a softie, too. Just look at that contrast, soft over tough, awww. Arnold Aninion is experienced with kids since he does have two boys of his own who are bigger now.
He’s an expert active person but he also knows when it’s time to chill. When the pumping's all done, some R&R is due. Gym buffs need to recover, too!
