‘We all have hopes, goals, dreams and aspirations, and I’ve officially made it my project to help as many of you get after your goals as possible. Let’s get after it and chase greatness..together’
– Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
We go head over heels in love with his classic smile and ‘people’s eyebrow’, but who’s aware of his story full of grit and resilience.
Having a strong ‘unstoppable’ belief, everyone’s favorite wrestler turned movie star hit the town shedding more light on his partnership with Under Armour.
“In 1995, I had $7 bucks. By ’96 I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks a night (God bless Waffle House)… Some of you out there might be going thru your own ‘$7 in your pocket’ situation… embrace the grind, lower your shoulders and keep drivin’ thru and change will come,” The Rock said.
From being a college football player, actor and producer to entering the ring with the Word Wrestling Federation, Johnson made the impossible possible with limited resorts throughout his life – what an inspiration.
“Project Rock recognizes that we are all a work in progress, consistently trying to get better and working harder toward our goals. Understanding the grit, grind, and sacrifice, I wanted to find a way where I can embark on a journey with others, to inspire them to constantly chase their greatness no matter the intensity. That’s why partnering with Under Armour made so much sense, they embody the idea of this constant growth and progression, and together we deliver game changing products to help people get after it and chase greatness,” said Johnson.
