The Rock is on a roll.
Seven Bucks Productions, the company Dwayne Johnson co-founded with top bodybuilder Dany Garcia, has formed a long-term partnership with Mr. Olympia, LLC, to promote and produce the Mr. Olympia Weekend, the companies announced Monday.
In the newly formed partnership, Seven Bucks will spearhead a new effort to create and promote new programs around the Mr. Olympia Weekend, the premier event in bodybuilding and one of the largest fitness expos in America.
Johnson announced the partnership with a post on his personal Instagram account. “Ever since I was 14 [years old], I valued one core fundamental belief which my success is directly tied to my WILL to push myself and work hard in the weight room daily,” Johnson wrote in the post. “And that WILL in people is what we want to showcase to the world. Whether you’re an amateur athlete, pro athlete or weekend warrior – male or female – all ages – it all starts and ends with what we accomplish in the weight room.”
