Mark Wahlberg - Mark Wahlberg Wants To Launch An Affordable Gym Chain

Actor Mark Wahlberg wants to help combat the obesity epidemic in America by launching a chain of affordable gyms.

The Fighter star, who is an exercise enthusiast, fears many people can't afford to work out because of high membership prices, and he dreams of opening his own chain to help everyone get fit.

Wahlberg says, "I want to build inner city gyms for people who can't afford to join (luxury gym chain) Equinox. Look at the obesity situation in America, I want to build gyms where you learn about nutrition and learn about fitness."

Wahlberg recently became a health advocate by investing in power water brand AQUAhydrate.
