SB19 keeps monthly checkups, healthy lifestyle to stay on top of their game
There is no shadow of doubt that SB19 is everywhere. From their sold-out concerts at the home front, to their appearances and shows abroad, their punishing schedule can take a toll on their health. Still, the group is able to deliver a near-perfect performance every time.
The group attributes this to their healthy habits and in prioritizing their well-being.
“Be aware kung anong nangyayari, physically, mentally, and of course, ‘yung health mo from the inside (Be aware what’s happening to you, physically, mentally, and of course, your health from the inside),” Stell told reporters during a brief interview for their joint concert with local acts Ben&Ben and Zack Tabudlo.
“Hindi naman [tayo] sure kung ano ba talaga ang nararamdaman namin so you have to have weekly or monthly check-ups. But other than that, siyempre meron tayong pangangailangan sa katawan. [Alagaan] din ang hygiene, alagaan mo ang sarili mo. Exercise,” the “Voice Generations” coach added.
(We’re not sure what we’re really feeling from the inside so weekly or monthly check-ups are a must. But other than that, our bodies have needs as well. Take care of your hygiene and yourself as a whole. Exercise.)
Pablo, Josh, Stell, Ken, and Justin returned to the country earlier this month after their “Pagtatag” tour in North America. While it seemed that they’re done meeting their fans, they confirmed that they will extend their tour to Asia, with the additional legs hinted for an October release.
GET READY, A’TIN IN ASIA! 🔥

Despite having packed schedules, SB19 remained energetic and welcoming to fans and the media all throughout. This led to Stell sharing that being mindful of their health is helpful to them as artists.
“Nakakatulong ‘yun for us as artists na laging busy, walang tulog, pero sa tulong ng mga products at vitamins na tine-take namin, mas nagkakaroon kami lalo ng lakas na gawin ang mga kailangan namin gawin sa araw-araw. And important din talaga kasi humaharap kami sa maraming tao,” he said.
(It’s helpful for us as artists who are always busy, having no sleep. But with the help of the products and vitamins we always take, we become more alive to deal with our daily activities. Plus, it’s important for us since we’re facing a lot of people.)
Stell added that it’s imperative for them to be “energetic, happy, and alive” at all times.
“Dapat hindi nila nakikita na pagod kami lagi kaya dapat very energetic, happy, and alive palagi (Fans shouldn’t see us looking tired all the time. We must look energetic, happy, and alive at all times). When you feel good and feel great, it shows. You look good and feel confident,” he added.
For their part, Pablo emphasized the importance of “sleep and taking your vitamins” while Josh emphasized that “eating right” is a must to stay healthy.
Performing back home
The joint concert is one of the group’s recent activities since coming home, and they admitted that they’re “very excited” to face their Filipino audience after being away for about two months.
“Kakagaling lang namin and we’re very excited to perform sa harap ng maraming Filipino audience sa Pilipinas,” Justin said. “Nakakaexcite na makakasama namin sina Ben&Ben and Zack. Nakakaexcite, we’re very happy to be here.”
(We just came home and we’re very excited to perform in front of our Filipino audience in the Philippines… It’s exciting to be with Ben&Ben and Zack, we’re very happy to be here.)
And it seemed that they haven’t been away from their home country for so long. Their fan service remained topnotch, including their performances of “Gento,” “I Want You,” “Liham,” “Crimzone,” and “Mapa (band version)” with Ben&Ben.
Josh even revealed that they returned to rehearsals after returning from their tour, an apparent sign of how much they “value their craft so much.”
“Pag-uwi pa lang namin, nag-rehearse na kami together with Ben&Ben, Skouts — ‘yung mga kasama naming dancers — and napansin niyo na matagal ang stage rehearsal namin kasi we want to make sure na aligned lahat,” he said. “Gusto naming bigyan ng magandang show ang mga manonood. Gusto namin mabigay ang best performance namin.”
(When we arrived home, we rehearsed right away with Ben&Ben, Skouts — the dance crew we’re working with — and if you noticed, our stage rehearsal took time because we wanted to make sure that everything was aligned. We want to put on a good show for the viewers. We want to give our best performance.)
Aside from extending their “Pagtatag” tour, the quintet was recently announced as one of the performers for the Asia Artist Awards (AAA) 2023 which will take place on Dec. 14 at the Philippine Arena. EDV
