Lion grew up watching the action heroes of the 90s; Sylvester Stallone to Van Damme, Bruce Willis to Wesley Snipes, and secretly (or not-so-secretly) he always wanted to be a real-life action hero.
And, he’s not really far off IRL. He says that training is a way of appreciating his health whilst sharpening his god given tools; the mind, body and human will. Originally from a boxing background, he’s now a fan of all combat sports (and the insane level of conditioning they require!) John Rambo, eat your heart out.
He’s aware that balance in life is essential, so don’t worry. He plays just as hard as he trains. Yippie Ki-Yay Motherf**ker!
