Celebrity Parents That Are Just Like Olympic Athletes!

Mark Wahlberg

When it comes to celebrity parents in the entertainment world, you can almost say that they train and work out just as hard as the Olympic athletes that are in London right now. Ok, so they might not be as fast or as strong as some of our hard-working record-breakers, but when it comes to their fitness routine, they have just about the same determination to pump that iron.

From Mark Wahlberg to Anna Paquin and even Hugh Jackman, celebrity parents are always on the go, whether they are spotted running near their local parks or seen leaving a Hollywood gym. And hey, we can’t blame them too, especially when they’re in the business of having to look good!

Check out our photo gallery and tell us, how often do you work out? Do you think you could keep up with one of these stars?
