Alex Reid is embracing a new "metrosexual" lifestyle
The cage fighter - who is married to former glamour model Katie Price - has been indulging in aromatherapy sessions and sports massages in a bid to become a new man outside of the ring.
He said: "I am going very metrosexual at the moment with all my pampering!
"But I figure, as I'm beating my body up with training all day I have to be extra kind to it, too. So I'm having aromatherapy massages, sports massages and reflexology.
"I especially love reflexology - it's a great way to relax and get rid of all the stress that has built up during the day.
"I think it's so important to be kind to yourself and take care of your body."
Though the 35-year-old star is looking after his body while he prepares for a forthcoming bout, he recently admitted he had broken the sex ban he usually imposes on himself to help focus before a fight.
He said at the time: "I said last week that I like to give up sex for four weeks before a fight but that would be since the weekend gone, and - as we were both away last week - we had to break the rules when we got back!
"I'm not that strict about it, to be honest. I just think it makes me more determined."
