“Making fitness a priority on tour has been the single best change I’ve made over my career. It doesn’t matter if it’s simply stretching before load-in, a quick five minute workout, or a full day off routine; the result has immensely benefited my mental health, increased my physical fitness, and has me making healthier diet choices, such as avoiding late night after-show food.”
- Mick Jagger, Rolling stones

“To stay fit, I always carry a jump rope with me. And I run. I like to be outdoors doing things that you can do with your body—pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, squats. Gyms are cool, but I find them boring. I prefer to run outside in nature—it’s far more inspiring.”
"I do a lot of things with little weights—like, I'll put on a song that I really like and I'll do [bicep curls with] 5-pound weights for the duration of the song and just try to burn out."
