Gio Acosta is passionate about living a healthy and fit life, and hopes to inspire others to do the same. Fitness, for him, is more than just the physical benefits. It has also helped him develop holistically. “Fitness is so interesting for me because it helped me physically, mentally, and emotionally become a better person,” Gio says.

But going to the gym regularly also allowed him to meet new people and form a community of like-minded fitness enthusiasts. Beyond the physical benefits, however, what the 19-year-old DLSU undergrad learned from staying active is the practice of discipline and patience in everything he does.
