He’s currently starring on the second season of Channel Seven’s SAS Australia.
And earlier this month, Dan Ewing kept up his fitness regimen by working out in a Sydney park with girlfriend Katrina Risteska.
The 36-year-old wore a black T-shirt and a pair of sporty green shorts.
He carried a 25kg weight, which he held over his head as he walked up and down the park and did various exercises.
At one point, he showed his strength by lifting girlfriend Katrina over his head and playfully carrying her around.
Dan recently hit back after he was trolled for talking about himself in the third person during his SAS Australia introduction earlier this month.
The former Home and Away star, 36, said viewers don’t understand how television works and clarified that he doesn’t speak like that in real life.
He told the Imperfectly Perfect podcast: ‘I worry about any Aussie who hasn’t figured out how TV works by now and who actually believes I talk about myself in the third person.’
‘I mean, I haven’t done it before. Why the heck would I magically start now?’ he added.
Dan also said he believes viewers aren’t getting an honest depiction of what really happened on set of Seven’s military-style show.
‘It has more stitch-ups than a patchwork blanket,’ he said of the editing.
Fans had mocked the actor after he bizarrely referred to himself in the third person during his introductory video package.
‘Stepping into SAS selection is quite interesting undertaking. There’s no acting. This is Dan Ewing,’ he said.
‘So, what does Dan Ewing do when he is sleep deprived? What will Dan do when he hasn’t eaten, when he is freezing cold, getting screamed at, called all sorts of things?
‘What does Dan Ewing do when his back is against the wall?’
Dan was asked how he thinks viewers would respond to him doing the course, to which he responded, ‘Well unless they follow me on social media some people might know me better as Heath Braxton from Home and Away or Cap from Love and Monsters.
‘So it’s going to interesting for them to see, to consider what will Dan Ewing do when his back is against the wall, when he hasn’t eaten, when he sleep deprived.’
Viewers flocked to Twitter to ridicule his monologue, including one who wrote: ‘Why is Dan Ewing referring to himself in the third person?’
Another said: ‘I had zero idea who Dan Ewing was until he said his name multiple times.’
‘Dan Ewing likes to talk about Dan Ewing a lot,’ a third tweeted, while a fourth said: ‘Why does Dan Ewing speak in 3rd person? Answer: Because he’s an actor.’
Dan, like his fellow SAS recruits, was exposed to tear gas in an enclosed tent and forced to strip down during the show’s season premiere.
He added in his introduction: ‘I have nothing to prove doing SAS; I’m doing SAS because I choose to.
‘I’m really great at my mental health, my spiritual health, I keep my emotions in check.’
Dan is best known for playing Heath Braxton on Home and Away from 2010 to 2014.
