“He’s very much into fitness, so we work out together,” reveals Pia Wurtzbach about her boyfriend, race car driver Marlon Stockinger.
There were rumors that the two parted ways after Pia posted a photo of a pair of boyfriend jeans that she captioned, “No boyfriend? No problem.” Thankfully, she was able to clarify the issue during the ABS-CBN Ball, which she attended with Marlon.
“He’s very proud,” said Pia about Marlon’s opinion of her newest endorsement. “He knows that I prepared for this, but more than that, he’s very proud that I’m finally doing this fitness journey and that I’m doing it the right way.”
Pia admitted it took a while for her to get her mind into proper fitness. “I always tell myself that I’m going to be fit, but it never happens,” she said. Being the #GinebraGirl2019 gave her yet another reason to jumpstart her workout. This time, she really put her mind to it, even sharing her fitness journey on social media. “You see that I go to the gym every day. I work out with my trainer, the same one I worked with in Miss U, who’s based in Australia.”
Her current toned physique is a product of her hard work. “It’s all about the discipline,” advised Pia. “You can have a very good trainer. You can do a really heavy workout. You can have a great diet. But if you go home and you don’t follow and you’re not consistent, it’s not going to happen.
“I feel stronger. I feel better. Overall, I feel good about this, and I don’t want it to end just because natapos na ‘yung photoshoot.” It took her three grueling months, but it was worth it. In fact, it’s a lifestyle she plans to live by. “Healthy living na talaga. I want to continue my fitness journey. I have other goals now. I want to see how far I can go with my body and fitness.
“Sa tingin ko, hindi naman natatapos ang story ko sa Miss Universe. I want to keep challenging myself to show that I have other dreams. Na may mga ibang bagay pa that I want to achieve, and I want to share that all with you. Hopefully, I’d be able to do that.”
Pia may just have dropped major hints about what she is going into next. While Pia keeps her peace regarding questions about Kapamilya actors Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson, she willingly shared about an upcoming project she has with the same network.
“Definitely, merong mga naka-line up. Actually, we do have a show taping already with ABS-CBN. Reality show,” she reveals. “I also had a meeting with Star Cinema a few weeks ago, so meron ding movie in the works.”
