It’s not every day you get to workout with one of the biggest stars in Hollywood but that’s exactly what happened when Mark Wahlberg popped up at an F45 studio in Sydney today.

The 49-year-old Ted actor stopped by the F45 Woolloomooloo studio to train and motivate local members and put some familiar Aussie faces through their paces.

Candice and David Warner posed for a photo with the actor, who is an investor in the F45 franchise.

Also in the class was models and twin brothers Jordan and Zac Stenmark, Australian athlete and Olympic hopeful, Amy Pejkovic, influencer Elle Ferguson and her partner Joel Patfull.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph at the gym, Mark commended Australia on how well the country has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It seems like everybody here really did it right,” he said.

“The two weeks quarantine seems to be a bit of a downer but you are getting real results, people are able to go around and be able to function, working out together, going in to restaurants and that sort of thing. I wish we (the US) would have followed suit.”

Over the weekend, Mark attended the F45 annual Christmas party at Riley Street Garage restaurant in Woolloomooloo.

It comes after the Hollywood star was given permission to ‘skip’ hotel quarantine and self-isolate for a hefty fee in private.

Wahlberg is said to have switched jets in Sydney for the short flight to celeb hotspot Byron Bay on the NSW north coast where he completed his government-mandated quarantine at a luxury private resort with his own security.

It’s believed to have cost the father-of-four around $400,000.

Mark is said to be in Australia to shoot a TV commercial for online betting agency Ladbrokes.
