We recently published an article about the Top 20 Female Fitness Influencers from the Philippines. But of course, we have a separate list for the males. From this list are influencers who are Filipinos at birth, of mixed descent, or those who decided to stay in the country.
I will not let you wait any longer, here are the ones who made the cut.
Kim Atienza, or commonly known as Kuya Kim in the Philippines (kuya means brother), is a television host and former politician. What’s fascinating about his story is that he was able to cheat death twice. One was from a stroke, and another was from a rare disease. To date, he is living an extremely healthy lifestyle and his family does the same as well. Truly an inspiration!

Drew Arellano is a Filipino host and actor. Apart from staying fit and joining triathlon, he is a true-blue traveler. In fact, his travel show has gained him awards. You would be amazed by how smart, witty, and articulate Drew is. And let’s not forget how he inspires people to prioritize family and health among other things.

Clint Bondad is a model, actor, and also a fitness competitor. He was the former boyfriend of our Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray. But even before that, he was already making a name for himself. From one of his IG posts, you would see his total transformation, from when he was living like a zombie to living a healthier lifestyle. If this doesn’t inspire you, we don’t know what will.

Marco became an athlete at a young age, when he was still in grade school to be exact. He started Crossfit as he wanted something new to try out, and that he wanted to get in shape for basketball. This was his sport back in school. When he signed up for a trial, he got hooked up and never stopped. Check his feed and see why a lot of people (men and women) are inspired to get fit.

Bok Santos is known as one of the favorite celebrity trainers in the Philippines. And they all have the reasons to. He started training celebrities because his regular clients referred him to them. Talk about the power of ‘word of mouth’. That’s an evidence that he did great (and still doing great). He is very goal oriented and you can see the results.

According to his website, Chris lives and breathes health & fitness. It shows and we couldn’t agree more! He has more than a decade of experience and education that allows him to share techniques and strategies to change one’s habit and of course, life. He was featured in a number of magazines and worked with various brands. That shows how in demand Chris is.

Matteo has a lot to offer. He is an actor, a model, a singer, a karting driver, and a triathlete. We begin to wonder if there is one thing he can’t do. His feed is quite diverse as you can see his travel photos with loved ones, his concert, his motorbike escapades, and of course, his active lifestyle.

Like Matteo, Jericho is a well-known actor in the Philippines, and he is good at it. However, he is more than just that. He stays fit by surfing and is very passionate about it. Of course, he still has other activities such as riding his motorbike.

Erwan Heussaff has a blog that showcases lifestyle, food, health and fitness content. He is a true example that if you want something, you have to be determined, and you have to work hard for it. When he was younger, his weight was 240 pounds. He then lost a whopping 90 pounds! That was actually his trigger to put up his own blog with high hopes of inspiring other people.

Nico Bolzico, an Argentinian model and businessman, is also the brother-in-law of Erwan Heussaff. We guess you have to surround yourself with like-minded people so you can stay consistent and focused on your health goals, right? Apart from his healthy lifestyle, people are following him because of his posts filled with humor. Trust us, you will never get bored scrolling through his feed. Just make sure you are working out while doing so, or you’d get drowned for hours watching his funny videos with his wife.

Wil is a model, television personality, and a vlogger. Even with a healthy lifestyle back then, he was diagnosed with a stage III colon cancer, which he survived. These kinds of stories should be a wake-up call to everyone that even if you look healthy, it is necessary that you have yourself checked. Wil is another inspiration we all should look up to, not just for his looks or his travel videos, but because of his ‘will’ and determination to survive.

His upbringing contributed to his healthy lifestyle. He shared that his dad was once with the military and they were trained to live healthily without vices. His mom, on the other hand, was religious and it helped him in embracing the culture that our bodies must be respected. Rendon also shares his diet to his followers. And yes, he eats clean!

Adrien is the husband of a local celebrity, Isabelle Daza. He also lives an active lifestyle which is pretty obvious from his feed. He runs, hikes, and do a lot of activities with his equally healthy wife. We are pretty sure their baby will grow up amazing given their kind of parenting.

Derek Ramsay is a former VJ, host, model and an actor. He also played for the Philippines national ultimate frisbee team. In fact, he plays a lot of sports including golf. And if he is to choose if it’s his love for sports or show business, he would probably say sports. And we all understand why.

In 2010, Culver was rejected for a modelling stint. But instead of being depressed, he started training and working out. Glad he did because it paved way to more opportunities for him. He values consistency and he believes that this is the key if you want to see results.
