As lovers of the ocean, we had to search through the internet a beach babe that will stand us inspiration for us. Perfectly so, we found Elaine Abonal, a surfer. Surfing in the Philippines is an exponentially growing sport. To see women get in the water and take it as serious business is definitely #goals!

Her Instagram account is a living entity of THE LIFE— living it by the water, living it fit, and healthily. While we are in love with her gorgeous tan, we have to say though, the tips we get from her social media to get that fit life going are what put her on this Filipina fitspirations list.

Girls sitting in the corner silently are no more. It’s all about strong and fit women now. This is what Bubbles Paraiso embodies. She is a tri-athelete, a yoga teacher and definitely one of Philihappy’s favorite Filipina fitspirations. A lot of women are afraid to go and get running because they’re scared of bulking up or looking too masculine. Bubbles, despite snide remarks about her beautifully buffed body, constantly reminds us that health and strength come above all.

She does not only promote positive self-image and a healthy lifestyle, she is also the perfect reminder that women are limitless beings. If she can go all these things to make her go fit, we can too!

While most fit women we encounter over social media get their grind in the gym, this one leads us back to our roots—nature. Mona Lisa’s social media account is entirely refreshing, an embodiment of a healthy lifestyle while being surrounded with all things natural. If that doesn’t inspire you to head on out and explore what your body can do, we don’t know what will.

Mona Lisa is a chef. You can expect from her account an array of delicious-looking healthy food that you can definitely try to recreate in your own kitchen. While being fit highly depends on what you eat, a strong body also requires work. This woman definitely gets the work done on the waves or on a yoga mat. Envious? Don’t be ‘cause we know you can do it too!

While it is admirable to see that chivalry is not dead, if a woman can carry her stuff, let her. We don’t need a guy to carry stuff for us, even if it weighs more than we do. Take it from Betina Bordeos—a strong and beautiful woman that exemplifies what it looks like to be strong. She has defied what feminine means, being a power-lifter herself. Just last year, she was awarded as the Philippines’ Strongest Woman. Her IG is gives us a sneak peek the amount of work and discipline it takes to be strong, and the rewards that you reap from hard work

Women of now do not want to be skinny anymore. We want to be healthy and strong. With women like Betina, we sure know that definitely is possible.
