Celebrity Hairstylist Lourd Ramos Shares His Tips On How To Be Fit And Fab At 43

“My age doesn’t define my body!” Lourd Ramos tells Metro.Style and more about his workout routines, how discipline played a part in his fitness journey, and joining Century Tuna Superbods.

We’re lucky to be living in an era where every body is widely celebrated. With health and fitness being one of the top priorities of our generation, it’s no wonder that more and more people are sharing their personal stories of acceptance, triumph, and inspiration. Celebrity hairstylist Lourd Ramos is one of them. At 43, he’s happy to report that he’s never felt this good. “At 43, I am more alive!” he exclaims. “My age doesn't define my body!”

And this creative takes it up a notch by putting his advocacy forward and representing his causes via the Century Tuna Superbods competition. While he previously failed to secure a spot on his first try, he persisted and kept going—now, he came back stronger.


“I represent the LGBT community and they gave me an opportunity to represent my advocacy. I am the “Mangugupit ng Bayan”—a move to be a living inspiration to all aspiring hairdressers, barbers, and stylists to live a healthier life,” Lourd explains.

But even before he became a finalist, the hairstylist has been a fitness fan for quite a while. They say that life begins at 40, and Lourd took it to heart. He began his fitness journey a pre-pandemic, starting with boxing and core training.


From there, he signed himself up to a lot of patience, passion, and of course, commitment to religiously follow through his newly-founded lifestyle. While he admits that sticking to a diet is the biggest challenge he faced, he knew that the rewards are bigger than constantly giving in to his cravings.

Thankfully, keeping his goals in mind and taking inspiration from his fitness inspirations like Luke Evans and Jennifer Lopez guided him in being consistent. He began planning his meals accordingly (cheat days included) and designing a workout routine that allowed him to achieve his desired shape.


On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, he meets Coach Erie Matic, who won last year’s Superbods last year, for body building exercises. Every Tuesdays and Thursdays, it’s core building or boxing with Coach Gino and Coach Belo. And on weekends, he makes sure to give his body a reset to rest and recover properly.

He also recently started Calisthenics with Superbod Anjo, who trains him for flexibility as well. Leading up to the finals of the competition, he’s sticking to his 2,000-calorie diet and “lots of Century Tuna for my Omega 3 and protein needs!” the fitness enthusiast shares.


When asked about his ultimate fitness tips to fellow individuals who want to achieve their best body, Lourd tells a handful of motivational words. “First, start slowly and don’t exhaust yourself,” he points out. “Second, find your focus—do you wanna build or strengthen or do boxing or be flexible? Or, why not do it all?”

The hairstylist also believes in building one’s confidence to encourage fitness. “Believe in yourself—you can do it! It doesn’t matter whether you’re old or young. Health matters in all sexes, ages, and races,” Lourd advises. “And sabi nga ng trainer ko, smile! Because at the end of the day, you’re able to achieve it!”
