Maritoni Fernandez is one of the most effective "kontrabida" actresses in showbiz and it may come as a surprise but the actress is not only strong and brave in reel life but also in real life.
She has been living a healthy lifestyle for many years and her discipline in terms of exercise and diet paid off, as she is now 48 but has the figure that could pass off for a 20-year-old woman.
In GMA Network's report, what prompted the actress to pursue a healthy lifestyle and to stay fit was the findings in 2001 that she had cancer.
"Treatments, changing my diet, changing the way I live, 'yung very high stress 'yung buhay ko before. I knew that I had to make major changes in my life that would make sure na hindi na babalik 'yung cancer 'pag na treat," said the actress.
Now all those years of following a rigid diet and exercise routine resulted in being cancer-free, for almost 20 years.
"Yung pag-gym or pagwo-work out and pagkain ng healthy everyday, lifestyle 'yan. Hindi pang ngayon lang, pang fad para ma-hit mo 'yung certain weight mo lang," said the actress.
"Kaya po ako ganito up to now, I'm almost 50 years old and I have a pretty good body considering, because I treat it well," she further explained.
In a video, the actress also showed some functional exercises which everyone can do at home.
Maritoni Fernandez is one of the veteran actresses of the Kapuso Network.
She has two children, successfully battled cancer and has remained cancer-free for many years now.
The actress now advocates a healthy lifestyle and to make exercise a part of one's routine.
