The Rock arrives on the Gold Coast, hits the gym

FITNESS fanatics working out at a Gold Coast gym were stunned yesterday, when none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showed up.

The Hollywood star had only just touched down from Dubai, before heading over to World Gym Ashmore.

“I’m just here hanging out, having a couple of beers, seeing some friends and shooting San Andreas, “ he told the Gold Coast Bulletin.


With a budget of $108 million, filming for San Andreas will begin next week.

The Rock said he’d just finished filming Hercules in London and was looking forward to his three month stint on the coast.

Earlier in the day the star tweeted about heading to the Gold Coast from Dubai.

“In Dubai and on my way to my home away from home… Australia’s Gold Coast. #BodiesKissedByTheSun #WheelsUp,” he tweeted.

The Rock spent 90 minutes working out at the gym.

Meanwhile, the Gold Coast Titans are trying to get the bulk movie star to attend a training session and home game before he leaves.

“Can we get @TheRock to one of our home games? Help us by retweeting! #TitansUnite2014 #TheRock2Robina,” the team tweeted.
