Michelle Bridges, 51, unveils an angry-looking mystery bruise on her foot and leg

Fitness guru Michelle Bridges has debuted a nasty bruise on her foot and leg, after seemingly hurting herself during a workout.

The former Biggest Loser trainer, 51, proved that even the fittest among us can get injured as she showcased the bruise on Instagram on Thursday.

‘Mmmmm… yep, that’s definitely gotten darker,’ she captioned a photo of the bruise, which appears to have been caused by a dropped weight.

Her foot and leg looked swollen and was purple from the heavy bruising. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Michelle for comment.  

It comes after Michelle spoke about being single for the first time in years, following her split from ex-partner Steve ‘Commando’ Willis in January last year. 

The Celebrity Apprentice star told Woman’s Day in July she was ‘more than content’ being on her own and focusing on her son, Axel, six.    

Ouch! 'Mmmmm... yep, that's definitely gotten darker,' she captioned a photo of the bruise, which appears to have been caused by a dropped weight

‘He is the only man in my life,’ she said. ‘Without question. I love him to pieces.’

She made similar comments in an interview with TV Week in June. 

‘I was getting asked by a lot of people, “Have you gone on a date yet? Have you met someone?” And the answer is nope,’ she insisted.  

‘I’m not someone who’s easily offended… but personally, I don’t feel the pressure [to go on dates] because I know that the questions are coming from a good place.’

Michelle said she was enjoying life with Axel after relocating from Sydney to the NSW Southern Highlands following her break-up.

‘Life for Axel and I is pretty great since moving out of the city. We needed a change,’ she said. 

In an interview with Good Weekend in May, she revealed she’d suffered her fair share of ‘dark’ days while trying to move forward.

Michelle also told the publication of her drink-driving conviction, which occurred last year after her split, ‘I felt very alone.

‘To be honest, it was the hardest time of my life, ever, leading up to what happened. I felt like I was in a fog, and I didn’t know what was happening.’  

In January 2020, Michelle confirmed her split from Steve, 44, after seven years of dating. He is now in a relationship with F45 trainer Harika Vancuylenberg.

Michelle blew 0.086 when she was pulled over in her Range Rover with the couple’s son Axel in the car at about 11.25am on Australia Day last year.

After she was charged on January 26, Michelle released a statement claiming she was going through a ‘very difficult time’ following her recent break-up.

The star later pleaded guilty to mid-range drink driving and was fined $750. She also had her licence disqualified for three months.
