Steve “Commando” Willis said he “feared for his safety” when a former client of his reportedly started stalking him.
The 44-year-old appeared in the Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday about his dispute with Jun ‘Margaret’ Yue, against whom he has an arrest warrant for violence.
The former Biggest Loser star was given a temporary AVO by police against Ms. Yue in June after he claimed she was starting to push the boundaries of a normal client-trainer relationship.
Willis claimed that Ms. Yue would get jealous if he would train other clients, send him constant texts and messages on social media, and one day wait for him outside his old Elizabeth Bay apartment with a Christmas present.

“ You start to fear for your safety if you haven’t spoken often and it just isn’t accepted, ” Willis told the court, as reported by NCA NewsWire.
The couple met in April 2019 and started doing one-on-one training sessions four times a week.
But Ms. Yue’s constant requests to travel with Willis to a training camp in Melbourne in November 2019 made him ‘nervous’.
The famous trainer said that his plight with Ms. Yue had caused stress and anxiety to his girlfriend Harika Vancuylenberg and his children.
Willis quit Ms. Yue from his training programs in May 2020 after claiming she owed him $ 1,350 in unpaid fees, before claiming to follow him to a training session in Kirribilli via social media.
‘That upset me, because how can anyone find me in North Sydney? The words from her mouth were, “I come here every day of the week,” said Willis.
Ms. Yue’s lawyer, Michael Fokkes, claimed she approached Willis to pay her debt and noted that the couple had more one-on-one sessions together after Willis raised concerns about her behavior.
The professional interpreter was subject to temporary AVO after a vision of an altercation between Willis, Ms. Vancuylenberg and Ms. Yue surfaced in Caddies Creek Reserve in Kellyville in northwest Sydney.

Mrs. Yue was filmed approaching Willis and his partner putting equipment in their car after a group exercise.
‘You have no contact with him. You pay him what you owe him, ”Mrs. Vancuylenberg shouted to Mrs. Yue in the footage.
‘No money, no talking! He told you $ 1,300. You owe him that. ‘
She replied, “If you disagree, we can go to court because I have proof that I paid you.”
Mr. Fokkes argued that Ms. Yue paid Willis $ 19,000 in cash for her training sessions.
He also asked why the pair had continued to do one-on-one sessions together after Willis claimed her behavior was making him “nervous.”
Willis moved to The Hills early this year, reducing his PT work in the city and seeing Ms. Yue more often.
Mrs. Yue must stay away from Willis and his house until the case is resolved.
She will testify on Wednesday.
