Billionaire James Packer works out on his superyacht in Saint-Tropez after losing 33kg, quitting booze and saying he’s the ‘happiest’ he’s been in years

James Packer has been focusing on his health and fitness in recent months as he prepares to re-enter public life.

And the Australian billionaire made sure to get in a workout while on holiday in Saint-Tropez, on the French Riviera, on Friday.

Packer, 54, went shirtless in a pair of trackpants for his sweat session at the gym on his $250million superyacht.

He was accompanied by a shirtless friend in bright yellow shorts, who was possibly his personal trainer. 

At one stage, Packer appeared to ask the other man a question about one of the gym machines. 

Tanned from his European vacation, the businessman later went for a stroll along the deck after finishing up his workout.

Packer has lost more than 30kg and seems to have put his troubles behind him. 

He recently sold his stake in Crown Resorts for $3.3billion, and plans to return to his home city of Sydney.

The son of media mogul Kerry Packer said last month he was the ‘happiest’ he’s been in years, after embarking on a 75-day health kick and ditching the seven mood-altering drugs he was taking to help with his mental health.

‘I’m roughly 130kg now and want to be back to 100kg by the end of 2022. I want to swim with my kids at Bondi when we’re all in Sydney together next year and be 100kg,’ he told The Weekend Australian in June from his home in Mexico.

The casino tycoon said he’d quit the antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs he was prescribed in March, and was now looking to ‘rehabilitate’ his reputation in Australia.

‘I am very much looking forward to seeing Crown Sydney… it hasn’t been appropriate for me to be in Australia for the last few years,’ he said.

The sale marked the end of a major chapter in his life which at times was mired by controversy.

The billionaire credited his casinos in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney for changing the cities ‘for the better’.

The father of three said he was now excited to begin his ‘third act’ and plans to ease back into public life in Australia.
