If you think that having rock hard abs, much less maintaining it, is easy then you have another thing coming. It will require more than just a regular gym visit. It will take eating right and having the discipline to maintain everything – in moderation, of course. This comes in tandem with more and more people seeing the long-term benefits of staying fit and healthy way beyond the retirement age.
So you want to know the secret to living a healthy and fit lifestyle?
According to one of the ambassadors of this year’s R U Tough Enough?, Arnold Aninion: “the secret to success in fitness is being tough. This is because toughness is more than a fad but it is a way of life, he adds. Being physically strong alone doesn’t do the trick anymore; the mental aspect of toughness is needed in being successful in any aspect of life. You will need to have the discipline and strength to be able to achieve and live with this kind of lifestyle. Eating healthy right and exercising everyday is the easy part, but it’s the discipline and your drive to do it long term that makes it difficult.”
Arnold is a trusted fitness trainer of different famous celebrities like Solenn Heussaff, Anne Curtis and Isabelle Daza. But his biggest fitness story to date is his celebrity transformation of Raymond Gutierrez. In just three months he was able to coach and guide Raymond to lose a whopping 22 kilograms. According to Raymond, “it was an experience he will never forget. It wasn’t just a physical battle; it was also a battle of the mind.”
It wasn’t always a smooth road for Raymond’s transformation; there were a lot of roadblocks and temptations thrown at him during that time. Arnold recalls “Raymond started slowing down during the first month. Raymond was even in doubt that he was ever going to lose weight. I told him that ‘the best thing you could do right now is focus on the journey and learn from it.’ Raymond gladly followed and a few months later, boom! 22 kilos, gone!”
