Ina Feleo on how she lost 2 inches off her waistline in 20 days
Ina Feleo has taken being a fitness inspiration to a new level.
The actress shared on Instagram last Sunday, Oct. 14, that she went on a 20-day challenge that included HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts and clean eating.
“I wanted to see how much I could push myself and what results I might see if I really ate clean and up the intensity of my workouts,” she said.
Feleo posted pictures from before and after the challenge—it is apparent in the first picture where she wears a red bikini that she was already in good shape to begin with.
In the second picture, the “Paki” actress wears a striped pink bikini and it looks like she has gotten more core muscles.
Before the challenge, she was “training 5-6 days a week doing mostly weights and some low intensity cardio.”
The 20-day challenge involved home workouts from CrossFit trainer Dandy Chua, who trains beauty queens such as Winwyn Marquez and Catriona Gray.
Feleo said it was easier than expected because she loved the short workouts which could fit into her schedule and that clean eating did not restrict from eating carbs like rice and bread. She only ate vegetables, fish and chicken and removed junk food, pastries and soft drinks from her diet.
“When I had cravings for sweets i would just eat unlimited fruits,” she said.
The hard work paid off: Feleo whittled down her waistline from 27.5 inches to 25 inches.
“Progress is progress no matter how small. But I hope this inspires you, as it inspired me, that you can make progress in as little as 20 days,” she said.
Feleo also shares fitness tips on her Instagram, including short instructional clips of her workouts. The actress has been athletic since she was young, starting as a competitive figure skater and moving on to become a national dancer. She has her own sports clothing line, Ina Activewear. /ra
