Mark Wahlberg is known for his brutally strict and early workout routine, as he cares so much about his health that he exercises at 3 am every morning. However, while speaking with Fox News Digital, he noted that his workout regimen doesn’t stop him from having an occasional drink of what he thinks is the healthiest liquor: tequila.
In fact, he has his own tequila brand, Flecha Azul, which he insists is the healthiest type of tequila and is used at a Las Vegas On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina for an exclusive drink called the “Marky Marg.”
Speaking to Fox News Digital about tequila, Wahlberg said that his Flecha Azul tequila is an “authentic, premium Mexican tequila” with “no additives, no preservatives” and that “Tequila is definitely the healthiest alternative. If you’re going to have any type of alcohol consumption, you’re better off having tequila.”
After emphasizing that tequila is better than wine because it has less sugar, making hangovers less bad, he commented on his workout schedule, saying, “People always say ‘the early bird gets the worm.’ I will definitely put the most important emphasis on rest and recovery. So, if I wake up at 3 in the morning, I’m going to bed around 7 p.m. I definitely need my eight hours of sleep. Eight hours and just proper rest is the reason I’m able to perform at a higher level.”
He also talked about taking a cold plunge in an ice bath, saying, “I was challenging myself to get into that freezing box of ice water. It actually is very good for you, especially starting your day. It also promotes lots of recovery … but 38 degrees is pretty chilly.”
Most important, however, was Wahlberg’s discussion of faith. Speaking about that with Fox News Digital after noting that he prays in the morning after his 3 am workouts, Wahlberg said, “I attribute everything good and everything positive in life to my faith. … As soon as I started putting my faith and focus on God, good things started happening for me. And even when they didn’t, it gives you the coping skills to deal with things that are inevitable, like loss and failure and those things. But, you know, again, my faith and my family, those are the most important aspects of my life.”
He also commented on leaving California for Las Vegas and why that was the right decision, saying, “My kids are doing fantastic. You know, I wish I would’ve made the move sooner. … I spent lots of time in LA pursuing my own professional aspirations. And, so, to be able to now put them in a position to where they can pursue theirs, their interests, it’s definitely the right thing to do, and it’s long overdue.”
