On the benefits of working out: “When I’m fit, I’m more focused. I have greater patience and my temper is more stable, so I’m better in almost all my relationships. I’m more vigilant about the shit I put up with. I see clearer. When I’m out of shape, I’m emotionally lazy.”
Idris Elba, Men's Health
On his fitness goals: “Some guys want to be toned or want to jog for miles, but my ultimate fitness goal is to be fight-ready. If I step into the ring, could I go toe-to-toe for five rounds? That’s what I strive for. That’s what I consider fit. I want to know that if I’m being wrestled to the ground, I’ve got the strength to fight a man off. Kickboxing is rugged — it’s all core strength. But when you’re fight-ready, you feel like you can last forever.”
Idris Elba, Men's Health
On going all the way in pursuing goals: “Who is today’s Steve McQueen? I’m not saying I am, but I’m asking in real terms, ‘Who is a guy that you go, yeah!’ That guy represents something I can live for. These days everything is a bit watered down, a bit vanilla. If I want to do something, I’ll do it — breakdancing at the end of a movie trailer, adding a verse on a rap song, racing rally cars. Why not? If that’s a man’s man, cool.”

On shadowboxing: “Shadowboxing is one of the best workouts you can do. You don’t need any equipment, and it works every muscle. It’s what Nelson Mandela did many mornings in his jail cell.”
