Lara Parpan


Growing up, Lara was the last to be picked for a team in games of patintero or agawan base, but that didn’t traumatize her from taking up sports later in life. A gym rat since she was 25, she took up slalom skiing at 29, wakeboarding at 31, running at 37, doing marathons at 41, and triathlons at 42. All these, even as she dances Thursday or Friday nights away. Still on her bucket list—ballroom dancing and kite surfing! 

Lara is the Editor-in-Chief of Women's Health Philippines, the premiere magazine for women who value a healthy lifestyle and strive for balance in all areas of their lives.

Lara and the Women's Health staff write for FN column "You Can Do This!," which features insider information on the latest issues of the magazine, tips, and musings on health, nutrition, exercise, and wellness.
