A successful example of that is Mark Wahlberg. He has a certain lifestyle of workout and sleep routines and nutrition plans that many people have felt inspired by and have even followed.
Being fit and always in shape could pump up your career with success as it opens the door for action and stunt roles. “What if you are needed for such a role? Would you still wait for weeks to practice and get into shape? Why not be always ready?” Karim said. He advises that one should always workout and it is even better if he could practice another sport besides working out. “It would always reward you personally before rewarding your acting career.”
And when asked about his lifestyle, Karim stated that he goes to the gym everyday for bodybuilding training. Throughout the year, he has an on-season where he gets on a strict diet of high protein intake and low sugar and carbohydrates, and an off-season where he still trains but messes up his nutrition plan.
“Working out has ameliorated my body, my mind, my wellbeing, and every aspect of my life,” stated Karim.
