The rock-star lifestyle can be a fitness disaster. On the road, sugary treats and massive afterparties are everywhere, making getting a good workout impossible for even the most dedicated fitness buffs.
That's why Arcade Fire's Win Butler had to invent his own workout. “I've always admired Springsteen's massive guns and Iggy Pop's chiseled abs,” Butler says. “They got in shape the old-fashioned way, at the gym. But I wanted a workout system that suited my nomadic millennial rock and roll lifestyle.”
Last year, while recording his band's new album “Everything Now,” Butler partnered with top fitness and nutrition experts to create the Signs of Life Workout, a fitness system that combines exercise and nutrition to keep him in peak physical and creative condition. “It’s what enables me to play so many instruments and sing so passionately every night while we're on the road,” he enthuses.
