He said: ‘I’ve never been a gym person, and anyone who’s seen me on TV in the last ten years knows I’ve never been one of those guys who’s been muscular.
If I’m honest, I used to be Bobby bean sprouts. I was afraid of walking into a gym, and I built a phobia in my head because you see all these beautiful bodies on social media and gym guys… I always thought it was okay when they walked into a gym, because they already look good.
