Rob said, “This is a monumental transaction for F45 Training. When we started the company, we knew we had something special and had bold plans to create a global fitness movement.
“The immense interest we were able to generate through this process proved the strength of the F45 platform and we are excited to embark on this partnership with Mark Wahlberg and his team of investors.
“Mr Wahlberg’s genuine passion for fitness, proven business acumen and shared vision for F45 Training made this an ideal fit for the company and we are proud to welcome him into the F45 family.”
