Now more than ever, it seems that a considerable majority of the male populace spends a good most of the year slaving at the gym (or whatever fitness derivative) to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and let’s admit it, to achieve that Herculean-body we all dream of. This month, we immerse ourselves in all things that relate to fitness and the body. And well, yes, it just so happens that the summer calls for it. For starters, we set off on an escape to La Union where an unlikely bond of brotherhood was formed with strikingly chiseled cover stars Joseph Marco, Dominic Roque and Ivan Dorschner. With different paths and trajectories, they come together and realize that hey, they are more alike than not. Also in this month’s issue, we round up alternative fitness regimens, get the low-down on the bare essentials and trek to the majestic Tangadan Falls of San Gabriel, La Union. This isn’t just some surface level body talk. Seeping slowly into the male psyche, we cover all our bases in all things relating to an eventual peeling off the seasonal layers. After all, doesn’t the summer call for an eventual state of undress?
