Have a plan. Make a decision. Have real clarity. Be decisive, then make your move.”
When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson drops advice about anything gym-related, it’s time to listen. And The Rock has some wise things to say about the prospect of heading back inside a public gym as post-pandemic reopenings begin around the world.
The man who coined the term “Iron Paradise” to express his love of “banging and clanging” the weights around dropped this knowledge regarding how to approach gyms in a very different world during one of his regular Instagram Q & A sessions.
I know you guys have been pent up for months,” said Johnson, “you’ve been dying to train, you haven’t been able to get into your local gyms, you’re ready to get back and train like beasts, trust me I know, I understand.”
He continued in full coach mode: “Have a plan. Make a decision. Have real clarity. Be decisive, then make your move. Get out there and go.”
“That first step begins with that first rep,” Johnson said, “and in order to complete that first rep, you’ve got to get out there. Be decisive, get to the gym, and start training.”
