While the 'Dawson's Creek' actor is soaking in all this positivity, speaking to People, he revealed that getting into the dance routine has brought some changes to his body. The actor revealed that he wasn't sure about how much weight he had lost but could definitely feel the changes in his body. “I haven’t stepped on a scale, but my pants have gotten looser,” he told the outlet.
Ever since Beek entered the competition he spoke about being nervous with regards to his dancing skills. Even though the actor was confident about being fit he realized that dancing requires a lot more energy and dedication. “I was training, I was fight-training for something for like six months,” he revealed.
“So I was in pretty good shape, but not dancing shape. It’s a whole other level," he further added. Beek further shed light on his practice routine and added that he had to put in a lot of time and effort to ensure he got the steps right.
"I knew it was going to be hard. I was prepared for a really, really steep learning curve,” he said. “It’s about what I expected. I had no illusions going in. I knew it’d be a lot of work. I knew it would be a ton of time. I just really wanted to do it."
Ever since his entry in the competition, Beek has made sure that he interacts with his fans. The actor often posts clips of his performance on his social media. Before entering the competition Beek told his fans that he didn't see himself as a good dancer but was excited to be part of the competition. "Yet to be decided whether or not I can dance... but I think I’ve got this standing still thing nailed. 💪🏻#DWTS premiere tomorrow night 8/7c on ABC," he wrote.
However, after his first performance, Beek shared with his fans that he had a lot of fun carrying out his routine on stage. "WOOOOO boy was that fun! Thank you @theemmaslater for such inspired choreography, and for being so cool and awesome and fun and patient while you taught it to me. Cannot wait for next week! @dancingabc," he wrote.
