Lucy Mecklenburgh finds exercising "horrendous".
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star left the reality TV show in 2013 and made a career out of being a fitness guru, but she has admitted she has a love/hate relationship with full-body workouts.
Speaking to Women's Fitness magazine, the 26 year old said: "It's my favourite and least favourite because it's horrendous but it's amazing. I love short bursts of energy as it gets the pain over quickly. I hate doing things like running, I just find it really dull."
Although she was an active child, the brunette beauty started to drift away from exercising when she started going out.
She said: "I absolutely loved sports at school. I did a lot of dancing and I was in the netball team. As we all do, I discovered a social life, college, my first job and I just didn't do anything."
The 'Jump' star also revealed she now has a "balanced" diet but she does let herself indulge of garlic bread or tiramisu from time-to-time.
She said: "Really, really balanced. I indulge at the weekend but in the week I'm pretty good. On the weekend, I'll relax a bit. Like tonight I'm going out with my friends so I'll probably have a few glasses of wine and I'll probably have some chips on the side with dinner. You've got to keep yourself sane."
Although Lucy quit 'TOWIE' in 2013, she still has fond memories of her stint on the programme but she insists it is a part of her life that is now over.
Asked if she'd ever go back, she said: "Probably not.
"I love the show and it was a massive part of my life, but I don't see myself going back. That chapter of my life has closed now."
