Have people just been noticing that The Block host has slimmed down? There’s no other reason why there would start discussions about his weight now, out of nowhere. His weight has not fluctuated recently and he has been looking the way he looks now for a few years. He was not the fittest man but over the last few years, he has considerably slimmed down. His weight loss is definitely not recent.

Scott Cam lost weight in 2020 after Australia shut down because of the pandemic and he has maintained his slim body since then. The presenter saw the coronavirus lockdown as an opportunity to keep in touch with his exercises and get in shape. Thus, he embarked on a journey of fitness and health. He built a gym in his home, which he refers to as his own ‘gym cave.’ Working out from his gym cave, he became successful in his weight loss journey.

What workout did the Channel Nine presenter do that led to him slimming down so? He has a much better physique now, so the question would definitely crop up. He has already let the public on in the secret of his fitness. In an interview with Daily Mail, speaking of what exercise he did to have weight loss, he revealed that he did interval training four times a week.

Scott Cam shared that his workout routine was him doing weight training for 30 minutes with 45 seconds on and then 15 seconds off. He also said that he alternated between five sets of six exercises and focused on different muscle groups every day. As for his diet, he said that he has always tried to be cautious of what he is eating but after he started doing workouts, he tried even harder to consume snacks less because the whole thing may have started as a weight loss journey but it became about his health as he went on.

I have lost some weight, but it’s more about getting healthy.

Sharing how it all began, when exactly he decided to lose weight and get fit, and when he changed his lifestyle, the Gold Logie winner said that it was the holiday season that got him started. He had started working out several times in the past but he never went on for a long time. However, since there was a lockdown in 2020, he continued with his new exercise schedule. Scott Cam‘s consistency led to his weight loss and produced good results.

I started over Christmas break and kept going. I’ve been a fan of the gym on and off for years. I’ve never been consistent though until I started during the break.

He never was as dedicated to getting back on track with his fitness as then. He said that it was the support he got from his family that served as a driving factor to keep himself fit. When exercising and keeping fit becomes a family thing, weight loss becomes much more interesting and easier. Maybe because it was a family thing, Scott Cam made a gym at home, which he began calling a gym cave after he covered the room in a natural stone wall.

He lost about 10 kilograms in 2020 and it was the best for him because he had been a little too relaxed with his health and fitness habits the previous year and he had bulked up. He realized that he needed to do something about his weight and so, he did.

You know, when you’re getting old and you slow down and you realise, ‘jeez, I better pull my finger out and have a bit of a go and get back into fitness again.’

Scott Cam has since maintained his weight loss.
