To get the most out of life, you have to challenge yourself every now and then. Whether physically or mentally, pushing yourself beyond your limits is not only a good measure of your abilities, but it can also tap into resources you never knew you had.
Take our cover star Dwayne Johnson (p24), for example. As The Rock, he dominated the wrestling world but wanted to go further, so he pursued a career in acting. Now one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, reportedly his next challenge is in the world of politics.
Freediver William Trubridge (p34) takes his life into his hands in pursuit of his sport. He challenges not only himself, but also the limits of human endurance every time he goes into the water.
As PT to the world’s biggest action stars, David Kingsbury (p49) knows his work is scrutinised by millions of cinemagoers. His new challenge is to get normal blokes into the same kind of shape – without meeting them.
The six men we spoke to for our report on the current state of male cancer (p29) didn’t expect to be facing up to a life-threatening disease. Their challenge was the hardest of all, and their journeys are testament to how they met it head on.
