Jane), Hilary Swank (for Million Dollar Baby), Sylvester Stallone (for Rocky), Mark Wahlberg (for The Fighter) and Jamie Foxx. The former super middleweight boxing champion trains with his proprietary HDT (High Definition Training) method at his ABH Gym (Above Beverly Hills ) located on the rooftop of the 60 Sixty Hotel in Beverly Hills.
