Ramon Gonzales’ biggest challenge with COVID-19 pandemic

With most of the Philippines on lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic, citizens are being asked to adjust accordingly – and that is exactly what Ramon “The Bicolano” Gonzales is doing right now.

It has been a challenging past few weeks for Filipinos, and the only thing Gonzales can do now is to stay healthy and strengthen his body in these trying times.

“It’s sad that this is happening all over the world. Right now as an athlete, I just make sure to find time to work out and train, even when I am alone,” Gonzales said.

“I also encourage my family and friends to do simple workouts in their homes so they can strengthen their immune system. That’s one way of surviving this, to stay disciplined by finding time to work out and encouraging others to do it as well.”

But aside from staying fit during these trying times, “The Bicolano” is also staying in touch with loved ones.

“The biggest challenge for me is worrying about my family. They’re far away from me now and I think about them all the time,” Gonzales said.

“I just make sure to keep in touch every day, and I never get tired of reminding them of the things that they need to do to stay safe.”

The effects of the virus can be felt all over the world, including global sports promotions like ONE Championship.

Right now, The Home Of Martial Arts will hold their next four events behind closed-doors to assure the safety of their patrons and athletes.

If called upon, Gonzales vows to be ready.

“I am so eager to be in the Circle again and represent my team, my family, and my country. I know that we will all get over this crisis soon,” Gonzales said.

“This pandemic won’t stop me from my goals. I have a lot of plans this 2020, and I am ready to show my improvements. Every day is a learning experience and those experiences make me who I am today.”
