It's probably not a huge surprise that Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) loves to work out. We might be surprised to hear that he literally brings his gym with him anywhere and everywhere that he goes.
According to Men's Health, this "traveling gym" (which Dwayne also calls his "Iron Paradise" on his social media) is 40,000 pounds in total, which is mind-boggling to think about. Of exercising, the actor said, "It’s my anchor" and that is definitely something that we can use to motivate ourselves to break a sweat, whether we're traveling or at home.
Many people love to travel and skip their regular workout routines, seeing pretty sights and checking out awesome beaches, but The Rock can lend us some motivation for staying healthy and fit while visiting new destinations.
Here are 20 ridiculous photos of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson traveling with his gym.
20 The Rock Looks Super Strong And Fierce Here
If these amazing photos of The Rock working out in his traveling gym aren't inspiring enough, maybe this caption that he wrote for social media will help us out: "It’s a mentality thing. Time is money and I don’t waste either. I got a family to feed and work to accomplish." Let's definitely remember that.

18 Yes, He Actually Brings That Contraption With Him...
Is that contraption something out of a science fiction movie... or part of Dwayne Johnson's traveling gym? Yup, it's the latter... which is impressive beyond belief.

17 The Gym Is 40,000 Pounds, Which Is Nuts
It takes a lot of manpower to move Dwayne's gym around. As he wrote in a social media caption, "sending a huge thank you to the hundreds of hard-working crew responsible for always setting up my #IronParadise aka my traveling carnival in every location I film at. 40,000lbs of steal and iron."
16 He's Got A Special Area For Squats
How do we feel about squats? Chances are, they don't get us too excited, and we might even avoid them if we work out at a gym and do our own thing.
Well, The Rock does some pretty intense squats... even when traveling. According to Joe.ie, the Flywall Squat Machine "allows the user to feel the force of a barbell squat without a barbell or any upper body load."

It sounds like the actor was inspired by his own father: he was quoted by Muscle and Fitness saying, "Every morning my dad was up at 5 a.m. He’d have his coffee and then hit the gym, regardless of whether he was at home or on the road." Now The Rock definitely does the same thing.
