Since Mark Wahlberg posted his insane daily workout which starts at 2.30am, its become common knowledge that few people in the Hollywood business has fitness commitment like him – or madness for that matter. Well now Wahlberg has upped his love of physical exercise by putting money on it, investing in the Australian fitness franchise F45 Training.
Using his company, the Mark Wahlberg Investment Group, and FOD Capital, he has bought a minority stake in the brand taking over the global fitness industry.
Since launching, F45 Training has grown to have over 1,500 studios across 40 countries, all implementing their signature 45 minute high intensity circuit training that gets results fast. After searching for a strategic partner for a couple of years, they ultimately thought Wahlberg’s investors were the right choice. Luckily the feeling is mutual as the deal now values the company at around $450 million according to Bloomberg.
Wahlberg said of the deal:
Together with my investors, we are excited to be working with F45 Training. The founders of F45 Training have done an incredible job building a global brand, and with this partnership, we hope to continue disrupting the fitness industry. The strength of F45 is that people of all fitness levels will find motivation and support in an F45 studio. We look forward to inspiring people all over the world to pursue their health and fitness goals by introducing them to F45.
We have no doubt that with Wahlberg’s backing, F45 is going to go from strength to strength, with the actor already featuring the team and merchandise on his Instagram. If it’s good enough for Marky Mark, then its good enough for us!
