The Rock is no different in that regard.
A massive fan of professional bodybuilding, The Rock has always admired the athletes who step on stage. At one point The Rock had even endeavored to create his own bodybuilding event to rival that of big shows like the Olympia and the Arnold Classic. But beside his professional endeavors with bodybuilding The Rock has always been passionate about his own fitness. The actor and professional wrestler is constantly aiming to improve his physique and become his best version of himself.
Even at the age of 50 going on 51, The Rock is still motivated as ever to push himself to new levels of physical excellence. Never one to be content with his current level, the popular actor is always focused on improving. That means his goal is a never ending one. With no set finishing line in sight he remains ever motivated to simply be the best version of himself at any given time.
