Dwayne Johnson is an absolute giant in more ways than one. Of course, he is a man-mountain but he is also one of the most inspiring men on the planet with more than 200million followers on Instagram. Strong, sharp and serious about fitness and wellbeing, his Project Rock collaboration with Under Armour has been a huge hit and captured the imagination of all who want to follow in his footsteps as a bona fide fitness God.
“Project Rock is not a brand, it’s a movement. It’s a core belief, that I 100% don’t care what colour you are, how old you are, where you come from or what you do for a living. The only thing I care about is you and me, building the belief that regardless of the odds, we can overcome and achieve - but it all starts with the work that we’re willing to put in with our two hands.” We told you he’s inspiring.
Here are the five best pieces from the collection to help smash your goals.
UA Sport Wireless Train Headphones - Project Rock Edition
Whether you need to be pumped up or just want your favourite tunes to accompany your workout, these headphones are so comfortable and sturdy, you’ll forget they’re even round your ears.
What’s cool is that a five-minute charge returns an hour’s play so any of those days you get caught out or forget to plug in it at home, there’s no chance of your routine being ruined. The usual 16-hour from a full charge is hugely beneficial while the headphones boast Talk-Thru technology, which drops music down and turns on speech-optimised, noise-cancelling mics so your workouts aren’t disturbed. Ideal.
Project Rock Charged Cotton® Hoodie
Approved by Johnson himself, this light blue hoodie has just enough give to not be too restrictive when you’re pumping iron or pushing yourself to the limits.
Amazingly, the hoodie, made from 100% cotton, actually wicks sweat and dries up in moments, meaning you won’t be weighed down or feeling icky as you work through your circuit. For an added bonus, there is a hidden pocket for any essentials too.
Project Rock Duffle Backpack
Designed to act as a duffel bag and backpack, this versatile piece will last for years, made from tough, abrasion-resistant nylon because we all know how our gear can get bruised and battered. It’s water resistant too so will continue to look the part while it also includes a laptop sleeve for your MacBook, ideal for when you want to smash out a quick workout straight from the office.
Project Rock UA SPORTSMASK
This facemask is designed specifically for athletes and has been the biggest selling product in the range since it’s launch less than two weeks ago. Near identical to Under Armour’s own facemask with different branding, the mask, an absolute essential for the world we currently live in, boasts a cool feel, airflow and is comfort fit.
Men's Project Rock Break Through Short Sleeve
‘Project Rock collection isn't about a name or a logo—it's about the gear you need to put in the work and overcome any obstacle.’ That may be true, Dwayne, but we still need it to look good and boy does this shirt look good. Slick and simple with a motto to keep you going, it’s light and fun. As well, the shaped hem will help you show off the new muscles you’ve worked so hard for.
