Chloe Madeley has revealed she felt 'like death' when she was in her 'best possible shape' as she felt pressure to maintain her physique.
In a new interview, the personal trainer, 33, opened on maintaining her ripped figure, explaining that the time she was at her peak fitness was a 'horrible period.'
Chloe told how being in the that shape is no longer worth the effort and she no longer 'cares' what she looks like now, so long as she's 'fit and healthy'.

The daughter of TV's Richard and Judy told Closer magazine: 'When I first started training, I had all the confidence in the world but, somewhere in the middle, I felt a tremendous amount of pressure to always look in shape because of what I do.
'That was a horrible period, but I’ve matured a lot in terms of my relationship with my body. I know how to get in ‘shredded shape’, but I know how much work that takes and it’s not worth my whole life.'
She added: 'When I look in the best shape possible, someone would look at me and be like, Oh my gosh, she must be so fit and healthy.’ “That’s when I feel like death. My body fat is low, I’m tired and grumpy.'
Chloe went on to describe the feeling as having 'permanent PMS all the time' adding that people didn't 'realise' how she felt when complimenting her.

The fitness enthusiast went on to say that she adopted a more relaxed approach to diet and fitness during lockdown, thanks to the help of her rugby star husband James Haskell.
Chloe told how she had been getting in shape for a big photoshoot in June and was in the middle of a 'fat loss phase' when lockdown kicked in in March.
As she was in the midst of her fat loss, James noted that he wanted to use their free time to enjoy more time together and have 'date nights', leading Chloe to realise that it was unrealistic to try and maintain her strict diet during lockdown.
After giving up her strict routine, the TV personality said now doesn't 'care' about what she looks like and instead focuses on just being 'fit, active and healthy'.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
