Julia Barretto has always lived an active lifestyle ever since she was young. From playing tennis and volleyball in high school, she started working out at the gym in 2017. However, her erratic schedule as a celebrity makes it quite challenging to have a regular fitness routine. Nevertheless, her on-screen partner, Joshua Garcia, is impressed by how Julia maintains her figure.
Joshua told PEP.ph in an interview during their Main Attraction shoot, "Hindi nga nagwo-work out iyan pero ang sexy pa rin, 'tapos ang dami pang kumain. Ano bang technique mo diyan, Baba?" To which Julia answered, "Actually, nagwo-work out ako pero nung nag-start kami sa I Love You, Hater, nawalan talaga ako ng time mag-work out." She added that prior to shooting the movie and the TV series Ngayon at Kailanman, she had more time to go to the gym. "Twice a day ako nagwo-work out noon," the actress reveals.
Julia enlists the help of Bok Santos as her trainer and tries her best to stick to her fitness goals. "If you want to start a fitness journey, dapat may goal ka muna," Julia told PEP.ph. "Ako kasi meron akong goal weight...I feel like minsan nga hindi siya goal weight...malalaman ko lang when I already feel healthy and good about my body."
"Nasa ano rin iyan, e, kapag tiningnan mo yung sarili mo and nakita mo na, 'Happy na ako, okay na ako," she adds. "Minsan wala rin sa weighing scale 'yun, nasa satisfaction mo 'yun sa sarili mo, kung gaano ka kasaya sa nakikita mo."
When it comes to her eating habits, Julia believes in eating in moderation instead of going on a crash diet. The actress explained, "You can never starve yourself...That is not the secret to losing weight and that's not the secret to a healthy lifestyle." According to her, continuously eating balanced meals and working out are key to eventually achieving your goals.
