Syra Garcia, actress Coleen Garcia's grandmother, is looking fit and fabulous, and she has self-love and an “unbothered” attitude to thank for. 

The 70-year-old “glamma” went viral on social media in June after her granddaughter posted her sexy boudoir photo shoot on her TikTok and Instagram accounts.

“That was supposed to be for me alone. It was not supposed to go out,” she revealed to PUSH.

“But then my granddaughter, si Coleen, and the photographer said, ‘no, we have to bring this out’ kasi maganda raw lumabas,” she added. 

With this, many were wondering what her secrets to staying youthful are. According to Syra, she keeps an active and healthy lifestyle, revealing that she goes to the gym at least three times a week and walks in the morning for about three hours on some days.

“If I don’t go to the gym, I don’t walk or I don’t dance, I feel so… parang magkakasakit ako. Because I’m so used that my body has to work. It’s part of my life already,” she shared, stressing that it’s not because she wants to look young and sexy. 

“Since I was young, I was an athlete, tapos after that I got married. Tapos every time mabubuntis ako, iiyak na naman ako, kasi two years na naman ‘yan na pagtyatyagaan ko ‘yung gym. You know, it’s been part of my life,” she added. 

Aside from this, Syra said that her slender physique may also be inherent. “I don’t have any secret. Maybe it’s also my genes. Kasi my dad is a very strong man,” she said. 

Being the adventurous woman she is, she also does wall climbing and shared that she has yet to tick parachuting and driving a big bike off her bucket list.

Other than her fitness routine, another key to looking young is her fresh and easygoing mindset.

“I laugh at everything. I don’t internalize anything,” she said. “At saka I’m not a very jealous person.”
