The Biggest Loser trainers Michelle Bridges and Steve ‘Commando’ Willis have struck upon a novel solution for the old excuse “who watches the baby while I do my burpees?”.

Just bring him with you!

The super-healthy pair were snapped (see images here) doing an outdoor workout in Sydney’s Rushcutters Bay Park earlier this month, with their three-month-old son , Axel, watching on.

“He’s almost big enough to fit into this now! and he’s been working on his push-ups! Burpees next!”

The couple faced criticism soon after Axel’s birth on December 19 last year, when Michelle quickly returned to a regular exercise routine.

“The lounge chair and a lot of other things are killing people a lot more than someone who has just had a baby and pushing a pram on the footpath,” Commando said at the time. She insisted she had already got the OK from her doctor to begin training again.

The couple are now in Tahiti with baby Axel, taking their second holiday to the exotic location in under a year following their ‘babymoon’ last August.


So adorable! Good on them for just getting in and doing what needs to be done. It is their lifestyle!

  • Such a shame they didnt last


  • Their lives are their business and theirs only.


  • Depends on your life style. Women in 3rd world countries still go back to work with their babies in a sling. My gr grand mother had her baby in the field as they needed all hands on deck to get the harvest in. She was given the afternoon off to rest , so she helped with the cooking instead. Most people these days are doing it soft. Child birth is no reason to go soft on yourself.


  • Good on them they look happy and enjoying their baby


  • If she’s careful, and has medical clearance, I really ont see the issue.


  • If you are as fit as she is, why not keep staying fit. In the old days horse riders got back on their horses within a few days of giving birth – this is no different in my view.


  • Good on them, see having a baby doesn’t mean you can’t do what you love.


  • looks like they’re enjoying life :)


  • Most start taking their baby out in the stroller within a couple of weeks of birth.
    The only thing that concerns me is the fact that in most cases the handles of the strollers are too low and you stoop whilst pushing it and don’t realise it.
    Something to consider when buying one. Perhaps take somebody with you to the shop to buy one and let them check it is too low and whether or not they are adjustable.


  • Love that they’re happy and doing what they feel is best, and including their beautiful baby!
