The Rock’s Latest Gear Will Help You Train Like You’re In His Iron Paradise
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a generous man, but there’s one place that he’s selfish and guarded: his Iron Paradise. The actor’s gym has become a legendary place (or rather, places, since he has a few locations outfitted to his standards) where he logs workouts, shoots videos, and anchors himself during his most hectic days—but it is very much closed to the public.
Now, Johnson is ready to share at least a small part of the Iron Paradise with his fans. No, he’s not giving out personalized 2.5 pound weight plates (although that would be pretty cool). The latest Under Armour Project Rock collection, Iron Will, is inspired by the Iron Paradise and all of the hard work Johnson logs to push himself into top-tier action hero shape.
The Iron Will collection offers Iron Paradise branded gear and expands on the Project Rock women’s line with pitchwoman Lindsey Vonn. There are also youth sizes for the first time, with two young athletes, 8-year-old viral football speedster Dashaun “Flash” Morris and 11-year-old boxing prodigy Johaunna “Jojo” Martinez repping the brand. The PR2 training shoe, which dropped earlier this year, will be available in two new white and black colorways, along with the new women’s and kids’ sizes.
Johnson marked the release of the new collection as only he can, with a sweat-drenched, muscle-straining workout in his gym. He posted the video of the upper body session to Instagram with a clear directive to his followers hoping to emulate his work ethic and success: “Show up, chalk up, shut up and get to work,” he wrote in the caption. “It’s what we do.”
