Isabelle Daza gets fitness back with intense weight training
Isabelle Daza is determined more than ever to get back her slim and toned physique pre-pregnancy. Daza gave birth to her son last April, her first with husband Adrien Semblat. The realities of motherhood duties are far removed from what is glamorous and Daza has shared in the past that being a “glam mom” is not her reality. Daza, too, has been open to her fans about her journey to getting her fitness back after pregnancy, and it’s anything but easy.
“Slowly trying to get my fitness back one day at a time,” Daza wrote last July 4 after sharing a video clip of her doing squats with weights. “It’s so tempting to stop and quit when I’m tired!!!”
In the clip, Daza is seen working out in Rockwell Club Atletica in Makati, wearing all-black workout clothes and white sneakers. “60 reps of 10kg squats, 6 reps of 10kgs shoulder press, 10 seconds sprint = 14 SETS of these 3 exercises,” added Daza about her intense regimen.
“Why don’t you just chop off my leg @arnoldaninion?!?” she addressed apparently her trainer.
Losing weight is definitely no walk in the park and doesn’t happen overnight. And Daza, despite being constant with her healthy regimen, is also not afraid to be honest about the challenges of getting her fitness back.
In June, she shared a photo of her running in Yarra Bend Park in Australia.
She wrote then, “Sometimes I just want to give up and just blame pregnancy, but I know I have to start somewhere. Working to get back my fitness one day at a time.”
But despite her strict regimen, Daza gives herself a break every now and then. Yesterday, July 10, she shared on her Instagram Stories a delectable taco spread complete with various toppings and add-ons which, despite their breadth, looked pretty healthy.
“Gay for tacos. Taco Tuesdays,” shared Daza. “My kisses taste like tacos.”
Determination and moderation are key to fitness and Daza, who embodies both, is sure to achieve her fitness goals in no time. /ra
