The Australian Football League player, who was recently announced as one of the celebrities taking part in this year's season of the Seven Network reality TV show, said that the dance practice is already taking its toll on his body.
After a week of training, Fevola told the Herald Sun: "I've got sore muscles where I never thought I'd have muscles."
He also revealed that he will be hoping to raise money for children's charity Life Education Australia during his Dancing with the Stars stint. He said: "They are a little charity and they don't get much, so hopefully we can make them more well known."
This year's male contestants include former X Factor Australia contestant Johnny Ruffo, rocker Brian Mannix, ironman Caine Eckstein and singer Shannon Noll.
The female celebrities taking part in 2012's Dancing with the Stars are breakfast TV host Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Packed to the Rafters actress Zoe Cramond, teenage sailor Jessica Watson, Brian McFadden's model fiancée Vogue Williams, Russell Crowe's musician wife Danielle Spencer and former Neighbours star Erin McNaught.
Fevola's ex-wife Alex took part in Dancing with the Stars two years ago.
