Huw has documented his fitness journey on Instagram, posting a slew of snaps of some of his most intense workouts.
On World Mental Health Day, the BBC reporter credited Clinton McKenzie for his overall health, as he wrote: ‘Big shout out to Clinton McKenzie who has kept me going this past year’.

Huw also shares poignant quotes about how exercise has changed his life with his followers. He captioned one snap of him doing the plank: ‘Fitness can keep the dark clouds at bay-this is a valuable life lesson.’
The news anchor was inundated with compliments from fans when he presented the Royal Wedding, with one posting: ‘Huw Edwards a stone lighter and with a St Tropez looking ten years younger!’
Another echoed: ‘When did Huw Edwards turn into such a silver fox?’
Another wrote: ‘My wife just said… “Huw Edwards is looking good and lost a bit of weight”… and followed up with a look that said, “do what he did, pronto”. So… what did you do Huw?!’

Others mocked him, however, for laying on some fake tan: ‘Why does Huw Edwards look like a mahogany sideboard just came to life?’
Huw has been at the broadcaster for more than three decades and is one of its top earners.
In 2012, he said he was ‘never not on a diet’ and said he was ‘one of those people who can put on weight simply by looking at a Twix.’
He added: ‘In my job there’s the added danger of high definition, widescreen TV, so I have to be careful.’
In May, sources claimed Edwards had agreed to take a 20 per cent pay cut after the BBC gender pay row.
He previously took home between £550,000 and £599,999 a year. With a reduction of 20 per cent, Edwards could even see as much as £120,000 shaved off his salary – taking his current package closer to £450,000.
In January, the broadcaster started asking male stars to agree to salary reductions after it became clear that all of the top earners were men, causing a gender pay row to erupt.
Jeremy Vine and John Humphrys are among other leading names to have agreed cuts while Edwards’ salary is understood to have been lowered in recent weeks – with immediate effect. As well as his News at Ten slot, he fronts major national events for the BBC, such as the royal wedding last month.
