When I’m in college, the only goal that I wanted is to be fit. I always think about preparation during Summer because I love to go to the Beach a lot and water sports activities. I’m always proud and confident with my body. I may not be that 6 pack abs guy with a super ripped built but I’m always happy with my body. As what they’ve said the beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
As I grow old, I just noticed that the main goal of my fitness is not about having a perfect body but having a very healthy body. It’s hard for a person like me to maintain such a nice built since I worked for 8 hours and my transportation in Philippines with a heavy traffic took me for an hour or even more. I’ve tried to do a lot of things like playing music, bonding with my family and friends so it needs to have a full dedication and discipline. When I saw my parents were getting old and saw a couple of family friends that passed away at an early age. My goals in fitness changed and I’ve tried to convinced my whole family to start working out so they can have a healthy body.
I’m so glad that I managed to convinced my Dad to start working out. For a couple of decades being a successful businessman. He and my Mom managed to gave the things that we wanted from cars, a very nice home and to even study in the top schools in the Philippines namely De La Salle University, Mapua University and Assumption college so what more can you ask for. I’m happy that he is enjoying his life now. Going to different countries for a vacation and he really deserved to have that kind of life. In return, I’ve prepared and teach him how to work out. What food that he needs to eat and avoid. I’m so proud that even without me, he loves to go to the gym!
For my sister, I don’t need to convince and force her to workout since she’s just like me who wanted to always look good. I’ve been her fitness instructor for a decade now. We’ve been working out everywhere, from Rockwell Club, Gym at my province or even at the beach. She’s been the type of person whose always conscious if she gained weight. No doubt, I’ve been teaching her “You only deserved to eat a very delicious food if you already done in your workout”. ha ha ha
My brother doesn’t love gym as much as I do but this guy is a superstar of any team that he plays with. He loves basketball more than anything else. I can say that height doesn’t apply to him. He is definitely a scoring machine and the guy that you needed to complete your lineup.
About my Super Mom, you will not recognized how old is she. She look so young at her age. Why I called her Super Mom? I can say that she’s a very good leader to her subordinates and I can also say that she’s the best leader that I know. A good adviser, very positive person and super loving Mom. She might not love to do some physical workout but she’s eating the right food. She’s doing cardio activities in the gym with my Dad and sister.
Why am I doing this? because I want them to have a long life so hopefully I can be such a good example for everyone. It’s not all about working out and having a perfect built. All of us should be a role model to everyone mostly to our family.
