MANILA – It’s easy to assume that Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is a gym rat, judging from her toned body and tiny waist.

But the Filipina beauty queen said she only stays in the gym for a maximum of one hour.

“[Avoid] going overboard during workouts,” she said in an e-mail interview with the entertainment website Pep.

She added that she only does exercises at a comfortable pace so she would not “dread coming back the next day.”

When asked how she maintains her 36-23-35 body measurements, Wurtzbach replied: “Eating everything in moderation.”

“I prefer a cheat meal than a cheat day. I wouldn’t want to indulge too much in one day,” she explained. 

Prior to competing – and eventually winning – in Miss Universe 2015, Wurtzbach struggled to lose weight, according to her pageant mentor, Jonas Gaffud. 

Here are some tips on making your exercise routines more effective from Wurtzbach’s trainer back in 2016, Mark Batan:
