“It definitely wasn’t something that came natural to me rather I grew into it," Michael admitted, referring to his gradual likening of fitness and nutrition.
Michael, who grew up playing rugby, said after making the commitment to getting in shape, he slowly found his appreciation for fitness, which included training several times a day.
"I try and do between six and eight sessions a week. They comprise of four to five weight sessions with a whole lot of variances. Then two to three cardio sessions whether that be a boxing class or Oztag with mates, sprints and running work at a park or just a HIIT session at one of the gyms I go to,” the MAFS star revealed.
"I still play rugby in top grade in winter and had a charity boxing fight a few years back so I’m always looking for new challenges. I train mostly by myself - it’s my 'me time' - I go hard and don’t muck around when I’m at the gym. I like to get through my work and then leave."
Mikey also confessed to sticking to a diet of meat-based proteins and no processed food.
"I don’t have any refined sugar and don’t really have a sweet tooth but love my carbs though. I don’t usually use much oil when I cook, and my dressings are usually homemade, so I know what’s in them. Besides yogurt I have hardly any diary in my diet," he said.
Earlier on this week it was revealed that Mikey once dated fitness influencer and Australian Ninja Warrior star, Katie Williams.
