"The biggest change physically has been the transfer of muscle mass from upper body to lower body. I've lost about 12 pounds," he said at the time.

He also shared that the biggest motivator was his wife and That 70's Show co-star, adding: "My wife [Mila] has been super supportive."

The actor also talked about what he'd learned during the months of rigorous training, saying that "surrounding myself with a support system makes hard things much easier. 

"Setting a pace that you can sustain is not the same thing as working as hard as you can."

Ashton has been documenting more of his journey through his 16-part digital interview series, Our Future Selves, which includes segments of him training alongside several other celebrity guests.

He revealed that his biggest motivation was his family, including his two kids, daughter Wyatt, seven, and son Dimitri, five.

"My baseline 'why' comes down to leaving life better than what it was given to me. My daily motivator is my kids and family," he shared.

His family has been by his side since he revealed earlier in the year that he had been diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called vasculitis, which he opened up about on Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge.

"It took me like a year to build it all back up."
