Retired NRL star turned TV host Beau Ryan is launching an ambitious new chain of gyms to take on the popular F45 chain and shake up the Australian fitness industry.

The 35-year-old, who played for the Sharks and Wests Tigers and developed a big following as a funny man on the Footy Show, has exclusively revealed to Daily Mail Australia he’s now adding ‘entrepreneur’ to his C.V. with the launch of new business, Sweat 1000.

The Amazing Race Australia host has joined his friend Keiran Turner in the business, which is based in Coogee, Sydney, and will be offered as a franchise across the country, with Beau aiming for hundreds of branches within 5 years before looking overseas.

Beau could be Australia’s answer Mark Wahlberg with his jump from entertainment to the fitness industry, with Sweat 1000 no doubt set to rival Mark’s F45 chain, which also originated in Australia.

Mark, 49, has not only invested his own hard-earned cash into the F45 training franchise, but also swears by the workouts too.

F45 refers to the 45-minute high-intensity functional workouts the gym is famous for.

Sweat 1000 offers 50-minute workouts and focuses on resistance and cardio training – with the name referring to the 1,000 movements which burn 1,000 calories per session.
