It is easy to feel envious when you see athletes training at the Iron Paradise gym with Dwayne Johnson. Now you can get a taste of that experience, as The Rock has recently shared his music playlist for when he is getting hard at work in the gym.
Anybody who sees Johnson in his own home gym knows that it is a killer facility. Whether he is training solo or with some other elite athletes, he has one of the best home gyms out there, and is always putting it to it’s full use. The Iron Paradise is so notorious that he has even turned it into a brand, putting out some merch with UnderAmour that people can get to represent the facility. In fact, to celebrate this recent merch drop, he shared a video clip to his Instagram, doing a killer chest workout in some of the gear.
“”Choosing progress means charging forward with purpose,” Johnson says in the video. “Choosing progress means acknowledging challenges. Choosing progress requires hard work that sees no end. While the road continues to present challenges, we choose to navigate responsibly and vigilantly. We go back smarter with more resilience and with care for those around us. The time to choose progress is now. We do it through strength. We do it through action. We do it through the work.”
This inspirational message from Dwayne Johnson, that is playing the during the video, is the theme of a Spotify playlist that he put together for fans to listen to while they work out. A few days earlier, he asked fans for their suggestions for the best tracks to listen to while pumping iron. He chose three of these, which stood out the most to him, and added them to a playlist of his own choice songs, consisting of a variety of tracks from 2Pac and Eminem, all the way to ZZ Top and Godsmack. Littered throughout this playlist are some more inspirational messages from The Rock, to keep your motivation up during your training.
