Personal trainer Steve ‘Commando’ Willis shot to fame on The Biggest Loser in 2007 when the former soldier found love with co-star Michelle Bridges.
Prior to their split in 2020, the former power couple built a fitness empire together and Willis published books such as Commando Steve: No Excuses and Get Commando Fit – and he even starred on a season of Australian Survivor.
But following his split from Bridges and exit from The Biggest Loser in 2015, the 47-year-old Willis largely slid out of public view, leaving fans wondering what he is up to today.
Steve ‘Commando’ Willis has left The Biggest Loser behind to open his own successful gym and has since found love with fellow trainer Harika Vancuylenberg. (Pictured together)
Despite no longer being on primetime television, Commando is still a significant player in the fitness industry.
He currently runs his own gym in Sydney called Get Commando Fit, in addition to working as a personal trainer and offering online classes.
Willis also runs a children’s fitness program called Commando Kids and hosts his own gruelling fitness camps.
His personal life has also flourished, finding love with former F45 trainer Harika Vancuylenberg.

The couple apparently met in November 2019 when Harika attended one of Steve’s fitness retreats in Tahiti, and confirmed their relationship in July 2020.
Harika now helps run Steve’s fitness empire and represents the gym in fitness competitions across Australia.
Despite things going well for the couple, they’ve both ruled out having any children together.
Willis is already a dad-of-four, including son Axel he has with ex Michelle, while Harika has two kids herself.
Michelle and Commando first met while filming The Biggest Loser together and welcomed Axel in 2015, before both quitting the series.
They eventually announced their split in early 2020, and then Commando confirmed his romance with Harika months later.

Unlike Commando, Michelle has struggled to move on and find love again.
In an interview with Stellar magazine in September, the famed trainer admitted that she was finally ready to start dating again.
‘One of my dearest friends said to me, ‘Mishy, no one is going to drive up that driveway, girlfriend. You’ve got to get out there.’ I’m like, ‘yeah,” she said.
‘So definitely, now I’m back in the city, there’s probably more potential I guess. More importantly, I feel ready,’ she continued.
‘I feel like I might meet someone, because I’m going out more socially now, and just keep it chill. Not anything too serious, just go out for dinner, a movie, something like that.’
