Corbin Bleu – and his body – have come a long way from his “High School Musical” days!

The 24-year-old stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday where he dished on how his time on “Dancing with the Stars” has helped transform his body.

“Everything,” he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, when asked which parts of his body have changed since appearing in the ballroom.

“DWTS” is helping to complete Corbin’s fitness journey that embarked a few years back.

“Over the past several years fitness has been huge part of my life,” he continued. “I started at 18, but over the past two years I’ve really honed in on it.
