The new season will kick off Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

“I’m definitely really excited. This is completely new for me,” said Lochte, 32. “I think it’s time for me to hang up the Speedo and put on my dancing shoes and get in that ballroom.

“I’m going to treat this kind of like going into the Olympics,” he added. “You train for so long, and you have that one shot to put it all out there, and I think that’s what I’m going to do.”
