Alyssa and Keiffer are famous star athletes in the Philippines and the most followed on IG along with other young Filipino power couples. Unlike others, their journeys are not that far off from each other before they met. Alyssa was a volleyball star player while Keiffer came from a line of basketball legends and started making a name for himself as a collegiate basketball player. When they officially became a couple three years ago, everyone became interested not just on their love life but in their fitness journeys. You would see them training hard for their respective sports separately but if they’re not playing ball, they make sure they do one outdoor activity together where they can stay active and competitive – a testament to their combined millions of followers that staying fit doesn’t stop when the game ends.
This couple didn’t meet inside the gym but their paths merged when they fell in love with boxing-inspired fitness training classes. This led them to set up Box Office Fitness in Singapore in February 2019, which they envisioned as an extraordinary fitness centre where friends can hang out, have fun, and work out. And by that, they meant night lights and club music in the background while you do punches! Before this venture, Nerissa studied in Europe where she got the idea of mixing boxing and cardio training. Abel played water polo and was doing strength training for years. Now there’s no stopping them in living a healthy, active lifestyle as they journey on as partners in love and in business.
