Where to Train Like KC Concepcion, Ria Atayde, and Lovi Poe?


Choosing a gym or fitness membership is like looking for a significant other. No matter how much your other friends talk about that one place they frequent on Saturday mornings, you still end up with the one that understands you can only make time for it after a busy Friday night.

Perhaps the same goes for our celebrities. Naturally, they have different preferences according to their needs and workout goals. Plus, given their hectic schedule with shoots and commitments, their insight into which fitness center suits them best varies. See which one matches your needs  through this list

Gretchen Barretto

Where: Focus Athletics

When it comes to high-intensity workouts that vary from day to day, Focus Athletics helps you “train like an athlete.” It’s how Gretchen can eat cake but still sport a tiny waist accentuated by a Gucci belt when out and about.

Kaila Estrada

Where: Hit Arena

To maintain a model physique and have endurance throughout day-to-night activities, Kaila likes Hit Arena. The exercises cater to your preferences and works on your weaknesses.

Tricia Centenera 

Where: Elev8 Lagree Fitness Studio

Together with her friends, blogger and host Tricia Centenera works on that revenge body through a 45-minute workout called Lagree Fitness. It is s full-body workout that sculpts your physique and cuts down on the fat.

Empress Shuck

Where: Ride Revolution

Cycling classes can help engage your core and make your legs stronger. It looks like this also helps mom Empress stay on top of her game and make sure she doesn’t tire out easily.

Lovi Poe

Where: Options Studio

Options Studio in The Fort offers pilates, cardiolates, corehiit, and corebarre exercise programs to optimize the parts of the body or aspects of your fitness that need help. Lovi likes her pilates so much she doesn’t mind sleeping on the equipment. Just kidding, Lovi!

Iya Villania-Arellano

Where: Avant Garde Crossfit

Our very own body positivity champion Iya Villana works hard as much as she can. She does her crossfit training at this studio in Mandaluyong to support her running habit to make sure she can keep up with baby Primo.

KC Concepcion

Where: Vivian Zapanta Wellness Studio

Eversince KC Concepcion became dedicated #TheKCFitnessDiary, she’s been sharing the lifestyle adjustment she made to achieve the body she wanted. Aside from dance lessons and a  revamped diet, she also does some pilates and back strengthening. Looks tough but worth it.

Ria Atayde

Where: Billy James Fitness Center

Aside from eating right, Ria makes sure she maintains her figure at the Billy James Fitness Center. It’s boxing and weightlifting galore here. Plus you can spot Ria’s colleagues like Bela Padilla, Dani Barretto, and Yassi Pressman.
