Physical fitness is not age related and the stigma that only young people can be physically fit has been broken. There are many examples of that like the 48 Mark Wahlberg showing his incredibly toned body on Instagram.
Mark on this photo is topless but his body does not look of a 48 year old one, but of a young person that is in great physical shape. The picture went instantly viral with over 1.2 million likes and 21K comments.
Mark’s torso is with nicely toned biceps and abs that are being carved to perfection, and he could be the prime candidate for the “World’s Hottest Men” list.
You may wonder, how some people can keep their figure as young people?
Perhaps the secret lies in the caption of the picture “F45 results 45-day Challenge. @f45_training #ageisjustanumber #nowine54days #cleaneating.”
The F45 Fitness Group
Mark claims that age is only number and that anyone can have a chiseled body at this age. This famous Hollywood actor is known for his workouts and goal of a healthy life and body, but what really contributed to such shape of his body was F45.
F45 stands for ‘functional’ – F, and the 45 for the length of the classes in days. It is a global community fitness community promoting innovative and high-intensity group workouts that offer positive and quick results.
Mark Wahlberg partnered with the F45 fitness group in November 2018 after he has tried their workout routines. He took couple of sessions and immediately wanted to be a part of this brand training.
F45 Training is a community-first training environment that offers support and help to people who have set goals for good health and weight loss.
The website explains that F45 is an acronym of the facility’s training philosophy which was quickly accepted by Mark making him extremely hot. The guideline that this fitness programme offers provided Mark with such nicely shaped body. He had to eat healthy, no alcohol, workout intensely, and wake up before 4 a.m., so that he has enough time for the workout in the gym.
Mark was complemented for his muscled body by one of the most talented quarterbacks in NFL history, New England Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady. He commented: “We are looking for some skill players @markwahlberg.”
