OLLY Murs’ ripped physique and incredible weight loss has been revealed in what has been dubbed a complete “physical and mental transformation”.
Judge’s Voice fitness trainer Rob Solly took to his Instagram page to reveal before and after pictures of his progress over the past five months.
Olly, 38, has previously opened up about his weight loss and feeling “grumpy” and “not himself”.
In the new stills, he is seen looking sullen in the before photo while in the after photo he flashes a beaming smile.
The X Factor star’s trainer explained Olly’s hard work in a lengthy caption, which explained how the benefits had been more than just hard abs.
He wrote: “A transformation focuses on the physical but what makes these images special for me is the mental aspect of @ollymurs’ journey over the last 5 months.
“In all honesty, he has made this physical transition many times before.
“But after his last leg operation six months ago, Olly wasn’t as energetic and upbeat as he used to be.
“Having gotten into incredible shape in 2021 and ready to hit the road, complications with Olly’s knee (from an ACL injury over a decade ago) started to arise and the decision really difficult to return” under the knife “was taken.
“Olly had now been on crutches for weeks and when I went there to train he doubted he would ever get in shape and reach the level of fitness he had a few months earlier. .”
He added: “Some sessions weren’t like they used to be, Olly recently told me he would get so pissed off when I asked him to do pull ups etc during the sessions.
“But even though the atmosphere in a few of our sessions was tense, Olly showed up every Monday and Friday.
“Brick by brick, that started to change, the artist I had known who always questioned himself during our sessions started to resurface.
“The music got a little louder, the training top loosened up a bit and it wasn’t long before Olly added a boxing session and a swimming session to his training. He was motivated Added a weekly @viphq session to the mix too.”
He concluded: Last week we talked about this mental journey and I appreciated his honesty and ability to be candid. So to me these photos mean little, what means a lot is having the energy, confidence, happiness and belief in @ollymurs
“Someone who lights up the room for so many people. Olly, I’m super proud of you, you did this, you make things happen (11:11) and I can’t wait for the world to hear your new album.
“Not to mention the whole Murs team. John Green physio (the rowing king), @dansargeant.performancechef whose supplements and cooking certainly helped through the ‘bump’. And of course the future Mrs Murs @tankintraining whose macro discipline, constant example, love and motivation made this picture possible.”
Fans were quick to comment, with one gushing, “Wow! That’s epic!”
A second post: “Love it! Congratulations @ollymurs on the mental determination to pull through and @rob_solly as always on your deep workout!”
Olly – who started dating bodybuilder Amelia in 2019 – has previously credited his weight loss to his “brilliant” encouragement and nutrition plan as a “personal trainer”.
Olly opened up about helping his girlfriend while discussing his shrunken physique on Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden.
He explained, “She’s not a personal trainer, but she’s done bikini competitions in the past and she trains a lot, but she’s actually my personal trainer.”
Olly joked, “In more ways than one,” before adding in a more serious tone, “She’s brilliant and she’s been absolutely fantastic.
“She just gave me a little extra encouragement and she said, ‘It’s not for me to do, you have to be able to do it yourself. You have to get up to do it every day. ‘ So I was like, ‘Okay, I will.'”
The Wrapped Up singer continued, “So she made this little nutrition plan for me and I just went out and did it and I loved it. And I still love it now.”
He started dating city worker and former bodybuilding champion Amelia last January and got really serious with her over the summer.
Olly himself recently unveiled the results of his fitness and diet overhaul in a before and after snapshot showing the progress he’s made in just eight weeks.
He showed off his body transformation last month, telling his followers, “Not bad for 35! My ambition to be a ‘butler in the buff’ is coming true.
“The photo on the left was January 2! I was like ‘f**k me I look huge’ the weight was doing me a disservice, grumpy, no energy, sleeping was horrible so I made some adjustments.
