IT’S been five years since Danny Ildefonso called it quits in the professional league, but he's kept his body in top condition by staying active through the years.
At 43, Danny I's physique can still hold its own against his sons, UAAP athletes Dave and Shaun.
Just like the two college stars, the Alaska assistant coach also follows his own workout and diet plan to keep fit.
He posts daily workout videos on his personal Facebook account. There would be days the whole family of athletes work out together, and some days Danny's on his own.
In one recent Facebook Live, the eight-time All Star had these encouraging words: "Sa lahat ng ginagawa niyo ibigay niyo ang 101% niyo wag kayong mahihiya. Sa lahat magmula sa drills.”
The most important aspect? He’s kept it consistent.
Danny I, who stands at a statuesque 6-foot-6, also highlighted that he accompanies his workouts with a healthy and balanced diet.
"Guys sa mga kasing edad ko," he explained in the Facebook video, "sa mga gustong magkaroon din ng ganitong kondisyon, wala akong iniinom kundi yung pampaganda ng immune system. Tsaka sa pagkain talaga, mapili ako sa pagkain.”
The elder Ildefonso also recently joined an online fitness campaign that advocates for greater awareness of mental health issues.
“I’m conducting 25 push-ups for 25 days to help raise awareness for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety and depression that drive people to commit suicide,” he wrote on his post.
