― Carli Lloyd

“Usually, a Brazilian doesn’t like to work hard in training, doesn’t like to stay focused. I trained a lot of Brazilian players. I had a problem with Ronaldo at Milan. It was not easy to get him fit! Ronaldo was 100kg but was the quickest in the 10 metre test!”

― Cat Zingano

“It’s terrible, I know, but I will admit I was a really lazy kid. It was Bronte who would wake me up in the morning, go to training early, and take in some tips from the older training group. I would be there grumbling and complaining. After she began to reap the rewards of her labour, it definitely kindled a fire.”

― Cate Campbell

“College works on the factory model and is, in many ways, not suited to training entrepreneurs. You put in a student, and out comes a scholar.”

― Charlotte Rampling

“My definition, a definition in the drill books from the time that General Von Steuben wrote the regulations for General George Washington, the definition of the object of military training is success in battle… It wouldn’t be any sense to have a military organization on the backs of the American taxpayers with any other definition.”

― Chesty Puller

“All those car battles with my brother Ned were excellent training. Even now, on the set, if we’re getting into a vehicle, I’ll yell ‘shotgun’ first. Thus forcing Steve Martin into the back of the car.”

― Chevy Chase

“Obviously, the difference between a game and actual training is you’re using your whole body, so in that sense, maybe not, although maybe something to do with reaction, the speed of reaction, maybe that was of use during the training.”

― Chiaki Kuriyama

“It all comes down to when spring training comes. Do you want to go or don’t you? If you want to go, you go.”

― Claudio Ranieri

“The hardest thing is getting fake hit. You really have to sell it. Somebody comes at you and stops a couple inches from your face. You have to react like it’s painful. In my training, those were the days I was more sore, doing gut punches or getting thrown against walls. You’re moving your body in a way that’s not natural.”

― Cobie Smulders

“At 15, I refereed my first match, and I was training at my dad’s school even prior to that, so the only thing that I was concerned about – I guess the only thing that made me reluctant and was the reason I was in L.A. and the reason I went to acting school – was I thought maybe I wasn’t big enough – physically big enough – to compete with WWE.”

“First off, I don’t consider Tyron Woodley a teammate. He trains with Duke Roufus; Roufus is in his corner every fight. He’s been doing his training camps at Roufusport.

― Dick Durbin

“I come from a family with a long tradition in shoemaking, and I still live in a region famous for its shoemakers. It is getting harder and harder to find skilled workers.

― Emil Zatopek

“I didn’t know much. It wasn’t possible to buy a book about Nurmi, but I found out that in order to be faster over 10,000m, he ran 5,000m many times in training. And to be better at 5,000m, he ran 1,500m many times. And to be better at 1,500m, he ran four times 400m in training.”

― Fedor Emelianenko

“I’ve never done this level of physical preparation for something. Particularly for ‘Rogue One’ where I was training every day and doing kung fu rehearsals on a daily basis. But that’s part of the reason I wanted to do it, because it was very different from what I’ve done before.”

― Felicity Jones

― Frank Shorter

“The potential elite runner must realize that hard means hard, easy means easy and they must patiently seek out what combinations work for them. They have to learn to be persistent and patient with their training and racing.”

― Frank Shorter

“I was too restless as a boy to sit through an entire mass. It was akin to aversion training. I looked at it like a puppet show with a totally predictable story line. The only aspect I really liked was the music.”

― Frans de Waal

“The trouble for today’s footballers is they have too many distractions. We used to get our old players coming to watch training with football magazines in their hands. Now, more often than not, they are checking the share prices.”

― Franz Beckenbauer

“OpenAI is doing important work by releasing tools which promote AI to be developed in the open. Compute power is largely produced by NVIDIA and Intel and still relatively expensive but openly purchasable. Blockchains may be the key final ingredient by providing massive pools of open training data.”

“British managers tend to be a bit more hands off, let you express yourself in training.”

― Gareth Barry

― Gary Carter

“Jesus Christ is our supreme commander, but He operates only through His word, which is unquestionably a training manual. However, He has many interpreters, and few people see the Bible as a true training manual.”

― Gary North

“In the Broadway world, I’ve always wanted to play Valjean in ‘Les Mis’, since I’ve already played Gavroche. I’d also like to play the Phantom of the Opera, but I haven’t really thought about any film characters. You’ve got to have a whole lot of training for the Phantom role, vocally.”

― Gaten Matarazzo

“A small country like Israel has compulsory military training. But countries like India, that are so much bigger, have no compulsory military training, so people don’t understand how the military functions. They have no knowledge of how it works, no respect for it.”

“I don’t know many better training grounds than being mayor of San Francisco – those were pretty intense years in terms of reporting and scrutiny.”

― Gavin Newsom

“Pulp paperbacks have always provided a training ground for men, Some of them went on to become respected authors – Dean Koontz, Nelson DeMille and Martin Cruz Smith, for example. Why couldn’t a woman?”

― Gayle Lynds

“I went to school at Juilliard, and most of our training there is the classics, and as much as I thrive in contemporary, weird, experimental work, I really am excited about finding a pioneer woman or something from a different era that I could really sink my teeth into.”

― Gayle Rankin

“I just feel lucky to have had my training at Juilliard. Even though it is a ‘classical’ training programme, they also prepare you for all mediums. They don’t teach specific techniques or subscribe to a specific school of thought about acting.”

― Gayle Rankin

“Our parents faced more hardship than us. They didn’t stop us from training despite hearing the taunts from the people in the village. We were fortunate to have parents like them.”

― George Foreman

“I think of myself as a jungle musician because of my lack of formal training.”

― George Harrison

“Maybe the perceived fact that smart, rich parents tended to have smart, rich kids was largely due to the fact that they also tended to have stay-at-home moms or nannies who read to their kids, held them, put mobiles over their cribs, playing those annoying ditties, and sent them off for SAT training at six months.”

― George Kaiser

“The unemployed in Greece can get a voucher and choose a training program somewhere in Europe to be retrained during this crisis and when this crisis is over, we make sure that that person hasn’t fallen off the cliff and can come back into the labor market with new skills to find a job.”

― George Papandreou

“Social-enterprise employees earn wages and pay taxes, reducing their recidivism rates and dependence on government assistance. They also receive crucial on-the-job training, job-readiness skills, literacy instruction and, if necessary, the counseling and mental-health services they need to move into the mainstream workforce.”

― George R. Roberts

“My main graduate training was received at the University of Chicago from which I received the Ph.D. in 1938.”

― George Stigler

“There is a difference between a fighter and a martial artist. A fighter is training for a purpose: He has a fight. I’m a martial artist. I don’t train for a fight. I train for myself. I’m training all the time. My goal is perfection. But I will never reach perfection.”

― Georges St-Pierre

“I work out almost every day with some form of cardio, a few times a week, laps in the pool, weight training and Pilates.”

― Georgina Bloomberg

“I think if you think that far ahead about the first four, or to be champions, that is something you cannot control. You can control the training, and then the performance will come game by game, and do not think that far ahead.”

― Georginio Wijnaldum

“When you’re eating salad and quinoa while training, all you want is a burger. In the cycling season, when I’m doing 30-odd hours of exercise a week, I’m dreaming of burgers and curries that I’ll have at the end of the season.”

― Geraint Thomas

“Many training programs and often schools focus on just a skill or a kind of work competency. That’s only half the equation.”

“I was training to be a lawyer… I was president of the law society at Glasgow University, and my bass guitarist was my secretary of my law society; the lead guitarist and writer worked at the law firm that I worked.”

― Gerard Butler

“When Pep was at Barcelona, I was so young, 16 or 17 years old. I went to training a lot, and Pep Guardiola told me a lot of things, but I didn’t stay in the first team. He is an amazing coach, and if he comes to the Premier League, I think he will win a lot of titles.”

― Gerard Deulofeu

“I have a natural connection with Romelu. We stay most days after training and meet up to practice my crosses and him getting on the end of them. He is a top player, and he takes up the best positions for an old-fashioned winger like myself.”

― Gerard Deulofeu

“In the day-to-day, one only thinks about his club in training and trying to be in the starting line-up.”

― Gerard Deulofeu

“I have to devote my time and thoughts to training and playing.”

“Just looking at Onex: We hire almost entirely at the most bottom level and bring them through a nine-year training program. We’re probably 70/30 today not requiring an MBA.”

― Gerry Schwartz

“Of course one can’t eat in a civilized fashion while touring in theatres. But I still manage to get my three meals a day. I find that is sufficient for training.”

― Giancarlo Stanton

“We don’t just say this every spring training – ‘Playoffs, World Series.’ You’ve got to do it.”

― Giancarlo Stanton

“For most Olympic athletes, their training is their hardest challenge and where they push themselves to the limit. For Paralympians, training and competition is an escape from the hardships and struggles of their everyday life. That is the difference.”

― Gus Kenworthy

“I always have traveled with a camera throughout my life, but I always had my old 35mm film camera. When I was training to go into space, the only equipment there was a digital camera. I went through a fast-track class on Earth. It actually was fun, though I’m basically a dinosaur with computers.”

“I majored in drama and theater arts at Columbia and was always in acting studio, but that was a liberal arts degree, not a bachelor of arts degree, so I didn’t have a traditional conservatory training. There was a lot of reading and a lot of writing involved, and only about 30 percent of my classes were directly theater-related.”

“While cardio prompts your body to burn calories while you are exercising, resistance training not only sculpts, tones, and strengthens your body, but it causes your body to burn more calories when you are at rest.”

― Harley Pasternak

“A cardio workout increases blood flow and acts as a filter system. It brings nutrients like oxygen, protein, and iron to the muscles that you’ve been training and helps them recover faster.”

― Harley Pasternak

“Both cardio and resistance training are essential for looking and feeling great.”

― Harley Pasternak

“The idea behind resistance training is that you’re basically tearing something and creating a microtrauma in the muscle. When the muscle recovers, it’s going to recover stronger and denser than it was before.”

― Harley Pasternak

“My training camp has always been been something I have looked forward to every year.”

― Harley Race

“Here, class attendance is expected and students are required to take notes, which they are tested on. What is missing, it seems to me, is the use of knowledge, the practical training.”

― Harry Maguire

“I do enjoy seeing footballers every day, being on the training ground.”

― Harry Redknapp

“I started watching English news channels and would repeat after the anchor. Since coaching classes were expensive, I joined a call centre where, after undergoing training for a month, I quit. I followed this strategy in 15 BPOs. I could earn money and learn English at the same time.”

Instead, policies concerning the defense budget, deregulation, health care, public transportation, job training programs, and a host of other crucial areas are now largely written by lobbyists who represent mega corporations.”

“Not only does neoliberalism undermine both civic education and public values and confuse education with training, it also treats knowledge as a product, promoting a neoliberal logic that views schools as malls, students as consumers, and faculty as entrepreneurs.”

“I’m such a huge fan of fan fiction, to me it’s a great way for readers to become writers. It’s like putting the training wheels on for writing.”

― Hugh Howey

“When lifting, I’m always with a trainer because the thing that makes a difference is that last 20% in your training, and he very scientifically looks after my food as well, because when I’m going for a ‘shirt off’ shot, everything changes the month before, and I’m timed down to the day.”

― Hugh Jackman

“You have to eat before you train. Otherwise, that really intense training, after about 40 minutes you start to flag.”

“I think the point to be understood is that we’re all different. I’ve never been a fan of theories of acting. I didn’t go to drama school, so I was never put through a training that was limited by someone saying, ‘This is the way you should act.’”

― Ian Mckellen

“When we train a horse to do a certain job, we’re training the horse to be like a soldier, and yes, he still has a spirit, and he still has his ideas, but he is a disciplined soldier, and in the end, he will follow the rider’s instruction to do what needs to be done.”

― Ilaiyaraaja

“I make sure I do a lot of core work in my training.”

“I never got formal training in music. I would just sit with my ear to the speaker and my hand on the needle. I’d listen to Wanda Jackson and think, ‘How did she do that?,’ and lift the needle and try it myself.”

― Imelda May

“I have always been drawn to fashion from an aesthetic and consumer standpoint. I honestly never thought that I could take my business training and apply it here. I worked in retail and was into fashion. It was something I liked, and people trusted my opinion.”

“I think people don’t really understand how much footballers are affected by the people in their lives. When we’re interviewed, people always ask about managers and tactics and training, but they almost never ask about what’s going on off the pitch, and to me, that’s just as important to your career.”

― Jacquelyn Jablonski

“I became obsessed with watching YouTube videos with kettlebells and chin-up bars, Pilates. Built it up to five days a week training, then pole-dancing.”

― Janis Karpinski

“Moving outside of your comfort zone is one thing I learned from my training as an actor in England.”

― Jared Harris

“Even when I was an actor in training, one criticism my teachers had was that I should think about directing instead of acting, because the best actors see the material they’re working on through blinders. They can’t see anything but their role. I could never really do that.”

― Jason Pierre-Paul

“The fight training was very extensive, a lot of stretching, a lot of coordination of balance exercises.”

― Jeanette MacDonald

“Training is a universal right. It’s not just targeted at those with the worst skill levels.”

― Jeff Denham

“I think Americans raise eyebrows when you tell them that IRS agents are training with a type of weapon that has stand-off capability. It’s not like they’re carrying a sidearm, and they knock on someone’s door and say, ‘You’re evading your taxes.’”

― Jeff Duncan

“I went to a lot of theatre schools, got a lot of training, did a lot of repertory where you do a different play every night. I took a lot of voice, movement, and acting classes.”

― Jennifer Coolidge

“I had this idea that I could hire myself out as a person to go on archeological digs and dig, without any training! I actually wrote to a number of archeology departments and offered up my services.”

“Training readers to expect a voice or subject matter from me would interfere with the reinvention I crave. At the same time, I feel almost too able to disappear at times.”

― Jennifer Egan

“Resting for me is fitness training.”

― Jenson Button

“I’ve never had vocal training. No one could ever say that they helped me carve what my voice has become. It’s just been more of self-training: me just continuously going into the studio every night and trying out different beats.”

“Training is full-on. Some days I really don’t want to get out of bed and hit that track again. Sunday and Monday morning sessions are always horrible. But who really looks forward to going to work on a Monday morning?”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“As soon as I had a child, he became the priority. Now, I fit my training around him. I’ve changed as an athlete.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“With athletics, you put all that training in for only two major championships a year and the Olympics every four years. So when you get on top of the podium, it is relief and excitement and… Oh! it has all been worthwhile… the hard work, the sacrifices.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“I started training again four months after giving birth, and it was strange not to be fully in control – I’m so used to my body performing at a certain level, but it wasn’t. I was like, ‘Oh, man, can we go back to where we were, please?’”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“I’m so impatient. I can’t even stand waiting for a cab, and I’m always early for everything. In training, it means I want to run my personal best every session – but it takes time.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

― Jim Brown

“During the final two weeks of training, our students work simulated game situations in which our staff members role-play as players, managers, and coaches. They are given immediate feedback following each camp game.”

― Jim Evans

“I personally developed the Academy training program. All our training is based on solid educational principles. We present the material in four training formats: lecture, demonstration, drill, and implementation.”

― Jim Evans

“Looking back on those games, I probably hustled out of position as much as I hustled into position since I really never had any real training. I was working on instincts alone.”

― Jim Evans

“Our students learn more in 30 days than one could learn in 30 years without our training. To really maximize your potential as an umpire, you need to get a solid foundation as soon as you can.”

― Jimmy Carter

“I lose anywhere up to 20 pounds on location with adventurers like Conrad Anker or Brady Robinson. So I need to replace that lost weight and muscle by training hard when I am back in the States between jobs. And as I get older, it is far more important for me to be doing this and taking my conditioning seriously.”

― Jimmy Chin

“I grew up studying martial arts, playing violin, swimming competitively, so I already had athletic focus, discipline and training. When I brought that to climbing, I became passionate.”

― Jimmy Chin

“The other thing was that when I was at the University of Miami, we ran a pro-style offense and defense. I started each year by going to a pro training camp, I visited with various pro coaches, and I did this for five years.”

― Jimmy Johnson

“It’s less about the physical training, in the end, than it is about the mental preparation: boxing is a chess game. You have to be skilled enough and have trained hard enough to know how many different ways you can counterattack in any situation, at any moment.”

― Jimmy Smits

“I didn’t miss training because it had become so painful for me. I filled the void pretty quickly as I went straight into coaching and it was great; I had to start learning all over again, and then when I went into TV I knew nothing about it so I had to start from the very beginning.”

― Jo Durie

“I had four or five years in school training as a soprano. I fell into pop singing because of economics. I got out of high school and had to go work, and they weren’t hiring opera singers.”

“I was a very bad accountant; I didn’t care about money, golf or discovering fraud. After about a year I was sacked; then I went into teacher training.”

― Joanne Harris

“Discipline starts every day when the first alarm clock goes off in the morning. I say ‘first alarm clock’ because I have three, as I was taught by one of the most feared and respected instructors in SEAL training: one electric, one battery powered, one windup.”

― Jocko Willink

“When I was running training, we would fire a couple of leaders from every SEAL team because they couldn’t lead. And 99.9% of the time, it wasn’t a question of their ability – it was a question of their ability to listen.”

― Jocko Willink

“I did 20 years in the Navy. I joined the Navy right out of high school and went through Navy boot camp, went to SEAL training, got done with that, and then showed up at a SEAL team, where I did 20 years. That was pretty much my whole adult life.”

― Joe Calzaghe

“’Authoring tools’ are terrible; there is almost no software that can create closed captions for media players. And of course there is no training. TV captioning is bad enough, and this stuff is generally worse.”

― Joe Clark

“I don’t think I would have written a combat novel if I had just had peacetime military training. I think, in fact, I probably would have remained a poet and just written a short story every now and then.”

― John Boyle O’Reilly

“I was always training for appearance rather than performance.”

“There is no human-resources training for how to respond when you work for an unpredictable president. It’s perhaps fitting that when you visit the website of the White House Office of Administration it says, ‘Check back soon for more information.’”

― John Dickerson

“Real is when you go to training camp. Real is when you finally get the guys in pads. Real is those guys in that locker room setting those goals because we have some guys now that can set goals and expectations for those guys in the locker room because, ultimately, who are the Cleveland Browns but those guys in that locker room.”

“The cultivation of sensibility on purely personal lines may, in fact, be the very worst training for a world where only the corporate and the cooperative will matter.”

― John Grierson

“I don’t have any training as an actor, but I guess I’m an intense pretender. When you read something over and over, it gets into you a little bit. You can’t help but begin to feel it, even if you’re a healthy person as I think I am.”

― John Hawkes

“I don’t have actor training myself.”

― Lucia Micarelli

“The players in the England team, the majority of us didn’t play more than twice a week until we were 20. The younger girls are training more than that now, so in 10 years’ time, when they take over from us, the quality will be so much higher. That’s what I’d like to see.”

“We do a lot of lifting, and mix it up with upper body and lower body. A lot of circuit training for cardio. I hate just doing long distance running, so I do 5 or 6 different exercises for 20 to 30 seconds then move to the next one.”

― Madison Keys

“I started full-time training when I was 10, signed professionally when I was 14, and won my first match at the same age.”

― Maika Monroe

“Take the great example of the four-minute mile. One guy breaks it, then all of a sudden everyone breaks it. And they break it in such a short period of time that it can’t be because they were training harder. It’s purely that it was a psychological barrier, and someone had to show them that they could do it.”

― Malcolm Gladwell

“It’s difficult when you don’t take part in team training and have to train alone.”

― Manuel Neuer

“In general, any form of exercise, if pursued continuously, will help train us in perseverance. Long-distance running is particularly good training in perseverance.”

“A decade in advertising exposed me to plenty of schemers and backstabbers. But honestly, advertising is wonderful training for fiction. Writing novels is much easier if you’ve ever tried to write a billboard.”

― Marcus Sakey

“If the country has invested in the training of doctors or nurses or midwives for that matter, people are beginning to say, ‘Should we not ask them to serve a number of years in the country who invested in their training?’ I think this is now coming to be an interesting discussion.”

― Margaret Chan

“Doctors and nurses, with their training and their experiences, they would be able to detect unusual patterns of disease. That’s why we say it is important for every country to have a proper surveillance system. The function of the surveillance system is to detect unusual patterns of diseases.”

“Probably around 14, when I was finishing primary school. I’m coming from a pretty small city in Croatia, not too many options to train, not too many players. So I had to either choose to stay at home to do more school or move to Zagreb to the national training center. That was when I made decisions to do something better in tennis.”

“If you are loose and not quite taking clear-cut chances in training, then clearly you are not going to do that come match time.”

― Mark Hughes

“I’ve been training jiu-jitsu for a while. It just didn’t really click in my brain. Maybe sometimes I get a bit lazy. By the time I realize I’m in trouble, I’m already caught. You can’t really think about it. You’ve got to just react as it happens.”

― Mark Hunt

“Coming from a standing background in striking, I couldn’t catch up to the guys with 20-plus years of training on the ground. I had to learn submissions. I found out it wasn’t an easy road. I had six losses in a row, but I still felt I was the best fighter in the world.”

― Marko Arnautovic

“I used to be so aggressive, but after a while I started learning. It’s not that I know how to adapt, but I know all styles of fighting so I can change my style of fighting to whatever it needs to be. That just comes from years of training and a lot of sparring partners.”

― Marlen Esparza

“Louis van Gaal is a good coach. We have a lot of team meetings, and he analyses much – other teams, our own players at training, a lot. Everywhere he has been, he was successful.”

“The private sector is the innovation engine of our economy, and more private-sector businesses and organizations than ever are recognizing that training, promoting, and retaining women is essential to their continued competitiveness – and their bottom line.”

― Martha McSally

“If I was a guy, based on how I performed in pilot training, I would have been able to have selected a fighter. I mean, I have always said unemotionally, if we want the best fighting force, why would we have 50 percent of our population not competing for these positions?”

― Mary Pilon

“’Power breaking,’ also called Hanmadang – which means something like celebration or festival in Korean – involves breaking large amounts of wood, concrete, granite, and the like with specific hand and foot techniques. Practitioners rely on repeated resistance training and the idea that, over time, the body can adapt to stress.”

― Mary Pilon

“In France they spend six months training policemen, then they give them a gun and put them on the streets, and I don’t know that that’s enough. The film’s not against the police – although I think that if someone wants to be a cop there’s got to be a problem.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“I don’t story board. I do something else, which is, I block it. We then train to the blocking. In other words, when everybody’s training, they’re actually training a lot of the moves that we are definitely going to use, and then, I do a lot of photography of that, and that becomes where the cameras go.”

“After the 2012 Olympics, I returned to training, but unlike in previous years, my off-season weight gain didn’t melt off as soon as I got back to my routine.

“Depending on how slow I move that day, weight training will take two to three hours.”

― Michelle Carter

“Since the era of ‘Sherlock Holmes,’ private detectives had long been able to influence cases on their own. But the online detective, who had no sort of professional training or even long practice, is a purely modern phenomenon. The Internet changed everything by letting anyone become a self-appointed ‘expert’ on a case.”

“Skating takes up 70 percent of my time, school about 25 percent. Having fun and talking to my friends, 5 percent. It’s hard. I envy other kids a lot of things, but I get a guilt trip when I’m not training.”

― Michelle Kwan

“If you don’t get trained for your SATs in America today, you are at a disadvantage. Training is expensive and a lot of kids don’t get trained, perhaps. So I also identify with the kid or the person who has grown up in environments like I’ve grown up in.”

― Mickey Drexler

“I added a new strength training regimen in my training, and I feel like I’ve become a much stronger, more dynamic athlete. That makes me much more dangerous against anyone.”

― Miesha Tate

“I’m training at Phase 1 Sports in Las Vegas, and it’s a very high-end training facility for a lot of top-level athletes. I have been able to add a lot of power and the endurance to keep that power going. I’ve always been powerful, but the muscle conditioning I’ve been able to add has been a tremendous amount of help.”

― Miesha Tate

“There is that potential of the expats coming back to the Philippines. But sadly they are no opportunities, no incentive for them to come back home. Successive governments have, in fact, been training them to export them rather than working on the economy to welcome them home.”

― Miguel Syjuco

“I just – I fell in love with the sport when I started to ski gates. Once I was allowed to start training gates around 6 years old, then I really fell in love with it.”

― Mikaela Shiffrin

“I always feel as though I’ve made a significant improvement after every training session. It’s never S-O-S, same old stuff. It’s always something new.”

― Miley Cyrus

“I fall a lot during training.”

― Mirai Nagasu

“I don’t even remember how many times I’ve sprained my ankle. I’ve had stress fractures galore and torn my PCL. You just take a little time off if you have the time, and if not, you keep training until you can take the time off.”

“I am aware that I have come to the end of my martial times, but training with pain I want no longer. My body is battered by countless trainings. I collected nine operations; the body has become prone to injury.”

― Mirko Cro Cop

“I was training in an old garage – just a roof. And when its snowed, it would cover the floor, so I would have to clear this first. I didn’t have a punch bag. There was no place to buy it, so I managed to get a speed ball, but it didn’t have the swivel mechanism, so I just nailed it to the ceiling and started kicking.”

― Mirko Cro Cop

“I usually train twice a day, and Thursdays and Sundays are supposed to be my days off. But even on those days, I’m training at least once. I have to do at least one session each day to be happy.”

“I have twenty years of training like a spartan behind me. It has caught up with me. My body is broken down. I’ve been worn out.”

― Mirko Cro Cop

“Training is not the key. Head is the key. For me, it’s head. How aggressive you will be. Who will attack first? But you need to be good in your head, and there will be no problem.”

― Mirko Cro Cop

“I might have a different understanding of the term ‘football star.’ If I shoot a few balls after training, it’s perfectly normal that I collect them afterwards.”

― Miroslav Klose

“It’s going to take a while before we see a real shift in the students and the dancers that are going into professional companies because it takes so many years of training, but I do think that there’s a new crop of dancers, of minority dancers that are entering into the ballet world.”

― Misty Copeland

“You know, ‘The Golden Girls’ was a very unusual show to start on. I was young, and it was a show about old people, and it was a very traditional show, but it was also an amazing training ground for a joke-writer. It forced me to learn those skills.”

“When you bat, you need to have a lot of patience. I started training for it from the age of eight or nine. So, I knew what I needed when I stepped on the field to bat.”

― Mohammad Azharuddin

“We tend to have so many more close shots, which compels an artist to actually put in more effort than it is required otherwise. So, it is the expressions on the face, and how an actor presents his or her character, that really makes a scene. In such ways, Mollywood is a fabulous training ground for actors and actresses from other industries.”

― Mohanlal

“Fiction writing and journalism, in my experience, are really excellent training grounds for each other.”

“By continuing to increase teacher recruitment and training – and ameliorating wages and working conditions – we will be able to shore up the weaknesses of the French education system.”

― Najat Vallaud-Belkacem

“Runners exalt the marathon as a public test of private will, when months or years of solitary training, early mornings, lost weekends, rain and pain mature into triumph or surrender. That’s one reason the race-day crowds matter, the friends who come to cheer and stomp and flap their signs and push the runners on.”

― Nancy Gibbs

“In the case of the classic Western helicopter parent, it starts with Baby Einstein and reward charts for toilet training, and it never really ends, which is why colleges have to devote so many resources to teaching parents how to leave their kids alone.”

― Nancy Gibbs

“We usually use that mostly on the weekends because we have access to the range during the week. But I can tell you a number of times they have had a training holiday at Fort Benning, so nobody trains, and to drag him in is like pulling teeth.”

― Nancy Johnson

“You know, differentiating between training and matches. If they are all matches it becomes very natural to shoot them, although Dan thinks I should shoot more of them. I think I shoot plenty of them.”

― Nancy Johnson

“Actually I’ve never had formal training, I was lucky enough to continue working most of my career and aside from sitting in on a couple of classes, here and there, I basically just use my own instincts.”

“I was born in Osaka. I came to New York when I was three. I moved from New York to Florida when I was, like, eight or nine, and then I have been training in Florida since.”

― Naomi Osaka

“The thing about Parsons compared to the other schools is that it really teaches you how to be a designer, whereas some of the other schools teach you to sketch or teach you the technical skills. But the curriculum at Parsons when I was there was how do you put a collection together, as well as all the technical stuff. It’s the best training.”

― Narciso Rodriguez

“I do very scientific-based training. However, for skating, that’s a little bit out of the ordinary. Many skaters base their off-ice training around plyometrics, whereas mine is very strength- and power-based.”

― Nathan Chen

“My training and ballet background definitely gives me the competitive edge on the ice.”

― Nathan Chen

“I got amazing training both with Theatre Sports… back in Edmonton, Alberta – I can’t give those people enough credit – and the daytime drama I did. Incredible training, both of them.”

― Neil Diamond

“Sensitivity training is a fine idea but isn’t taken seriously by those who need it most.”

― Nell Scovell

“Running taught me valuable lessons. In cross-country competition, training counted more than intrinsic ability, and I could compensate for a lack of natural aptitude with diligence and discipline. I applied this in everything I did.”

“I’ve always been fanatical about wrestling from a young age, growing up in Newcastle, and I have been fortunate to start training, get opportunities, and meet the right people at the right time.”

“All unemployment compensation should be tied to a job training requirement. Now the fact is, 99 weeks is an associate degree.”

“At training, I consider myself a bit of a morale booster. I take a pack of lollies just to boost the boys’ morale. I see that as crucial. I try and be a good influence and keep a high energy.”

― Nick Cummins

“It’s important to find a balance between Pokemon and training.”

― Nick Kyrgios

“I like going out on the practice court and training with my mates. But I don’t know about fully engaging and giving everything to it. It’s just a game. It’s just a sport. It’s such a small part of my life.”

― Nick Kyrgios

“Everywhere I go, people ask me for photos and autographs, saying I inspired them to start training. Boris Johnson says his sons started boxing after seeing me – how cool is that?”

― Nicola Adams

“I hit the ground running, without a lot of training, so I had to do whatever I could do to survive as a professional, and if that meant being that character 24/7 and acting out, I was going to do that. I lived those characters, I brought them home with me.”

― Nicolas Cage

“My father had risen in the British Army under the revolutionary aegis of General Montgomery, who was mad about training for battle, not muddling into disaster.”

― Nigel Hamilton

“When we started training with WWE, coaches were impressed and asked if we had had boxing training. I said no, it was all soccer. As a defender, I had to learn to stay on my feet, track backwards, and I feel all the movement I do in the ring was helped by my soccer background.”

― Nikki Reed

“I love to sing. I never had any formal training. My mother is a singer, and I picked up listening to her.”

“Every race is like training and preparation.”

― Nino Schurter

“I’ve always held to the belief, though, that people who do too much acting training always look like they’re acting, you know?”

“I started doing sports when I was 13 and competitively doing sports – where I was actually training – when I was 17.”

― Oksana Masters

“It’s hard to understand the athlete’s lifestyle. You literally eat, sleep, train. You go to training camps in the winter where there is no Internet, you can’t make phone calls.”

― Oksana Masters

“Confidence is not something you store in the fridge and pick out. You earn it by your performances, by your training, how you feel.”

― Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

“Finishing is different to shooting. If you work at in in training sessions then you will just do it naturally during the game.”

― Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

“The most that hurts is I couldn’t see my kids growing up. They grow and go. Most of the time, I’m in training camps. I couldn’t see that happening. This hurts me.”

― Oleksandr Usyk

“If you put a person in a training gym made out of entire gold, it doesn’t guarantee that this person will become a champion. But if you put a person in the basement, then there is a high chance that he will get out of this basement as a champion.”

― Oleksandr Usyk

“I’m always keen to have more training as a charity patron.”

― Olivia Colman

“We don’t have the money of the Manchester clubs or Chelsea. Arsenal builds its team through training, through recruiting players who can become something. Arsenal has less money than some other clubs, so we have to fight with other values.”

― Oscar De La Hoya

“Nevertheless, I do know that we are part of a danger zone, we have military operations in Afghanistan and we’re training the Iraqi police force. The terrorists also have us in their sights.”

― Owen Farrell

“I enjoy playing. I enjoy training. I enjoy thinking about it, I enjoy talking about it.”

“Soldiers are not policemen, and it’s very unfair, even for those soldiers who have some police training, to burden them with police duties. It’s not what they’re trained for, or equipped for.”

― Pallam Raju

“After university, I was working as a stylist in the Paris theatres when I had a flash of inspiration. I made necklaces from the bikinis designed for the cabaret performers of Folies Bergeres. I was so happy with them that it was only then that I sought out formal training in jewelry.”

― Paloma Picasso

“Being a mother is the ultimate training ground for anything.”

“Policymakers can draw much from ‘The Need for Roots’: such clear prescriptions as that employers ought to provide an adequate vocational training for their employees, education should be compulsory and publicly funded, and include technical as well as elementary education.”

― Pankaj Mishra

“My teammate Franco Baresi was a real captain. He was an example for everyone. Not a big talker. He never talked. But on the field or in training, he was No. 1.”

“In skating or any amateur sport, as athletes we share something in common: the cost of training is quite a burden on our parents or on the athletes themselves trying to find a way to pay for their costs.”

― Patrick Chan

“Too much negotiating and not enough work on the court – that’s what happened to me during the lockout. Too much talking and not enough training. I couldn’t put in my usual offseason work routine. I think that all caught up to me, with my Achilles problems.”

― Patrick Ewing

“I was never a singer; I can’t play any instruments; I had no training. Plus, I was brought up in a time when all the great rock stars were male. I didn’t have any template for what I was doing. I did what I did out of frustration and concern.”

― Patti Smith

“I did eight months of training for ‘Wimbledon,’ and then, by the time I finished the movie another four months later, I was like, ‘That’s me. I’m done with tennis.’”

― Paul Bettany

“Haiti is always talking about decentralization and nothing has been so obvious, perhaps a weakness, as the centralized nature of Haitian society as being revealed by the earthquake. I mean, they lost all these medical training programs because they didn’t have them anywhere else.”

“The problem with these UFC fighters – and they’re all fantastic athletes, top of the line in the entire world – is that they wear their bodies down in these training camps. All these guys that are cutting weight are just destroying their own bodies.”

― Paul Heyman

“Before I was ever a baker, I was a teacher. Or, at least, that is what I thought I was going to be. After O-levels, I went to art school in Wallasey on the Wirral, and my mate Cavan and I did a teacher training course.”

― Paul Hollywood

“Jazz is a way of life, and you have to learn about it on the street, so to speak. But the training comes in by giving you the tools to work with.”

― Paul Horn

“The diagnosis was immediate: Masses matting the lungs and deforming the spine. Cancer. In my neurosurgical training, I had reviewed hundreds of scans for fellow doctors to see if surgery offered any hope. I’d scribble in the chart ‘Widely metastatic disease – no role for surgery,’ and move on. But this scan was different: It was my own.”

― Paul Kalanithi

“When women are provided with training and entrepreneurial opportunities in distribution networks, they become role models in their communities, showing it is possible to challenge limiting norms and stereotypes, and to succeed.”

― Paul Polman

“The best goalkeeper I played with at United was Schmeichel. He was a phenomenon in training, never mind on match days. He just never wanted to concede, and he would do everything to stop you scoring.”

― Paul Scholes

“If you want a measure of how private a place the dressing room was when I was growing up at Manchester United, consider this: even Sir Alex Ferguson would knock before coming into the dressing room at the Cliff, the old training ground. The dressing room is for the players – and the players only.”

― Paul Scholes

“Endurance training is so mental. You just do it. You just can, and you just will, and you just run that far because, you know, I get tired at the first mile. I feel heavy and all of those things, but now I have developed, it’s hard to explain… It’s a very satisfying place to get into.”

― Paula Hawkins

“The journalism, I was a financial journalist – it’s very good training as a writer. You have to write for deadlines; you have a certain economy of phrasing. As a training ground as a writer, it’s fantastic. I also think it teaches you to be observant, to listen to people, and gives you an ear of dialogue from doing interviews.”

― Paula Patton

“From my training I can get a good idea of what I’m capable of.”

“I deliberately returned slowly to training after Raphael was born and everything, apart from being bitten by a dog whilst out training in Monaco at the beginning of the year, has gone pretty well.”

“To a considerable extent we are faced by a technology arms race with terrorists. The communications revolution has made it easier for terrorist groups to reach out to vulnerable individuals with their violent extremist ideology and propaganda. It has also facilitated fundraising, recruitment and training.”

“None of the teams that actually probably were offering me a job from the getgo, actually in spring training, are in the playoffs right now.”

― Pedro Martinez

“I had only played five games in my senior year in high school. I was not large enough. Hell, when I graduated, I was about five foot four and weighed 120 pounds. I didn’t go with the Dodgers until spring training of 1940 and I weighed all of 155 pounds soaking wet.”

― Peter Agre

“The dangers of TATP bombs can be seen in the case of Matthew Rugo and Curtis Jetton, 21-year-old roommates in Texas City, Texas. They didn’t have any bomb-making training and were manufacturing explosives in 2006 from concentrated bleach when their concoction blew up, killing Rugo and injuring Jetton.”

“What I do say is that I can write verse, and that the writing of verse in strict form is the best possible training for writing good prose.”

― Philip Pullman

“That human behavior is more influenced by things outside of us than inside. The ‘situation’ is the external environment. The inner environment is genes, moral history, religious training.”

― Philip Zimbardo

“My focus in the training sessions is always about movement to create openings and opportunities. When you don’t have the ball, you still need the discipline to know where you should be, who you should be marking, but when we have the ball, it is important to be able to move around.”

“So, for me, I make no difference whether I’m training with my shuttle crew or the Expedition crew. Of course, I think I want to take more care of the Expedition crew, because they’re going to stay there for a long time.”

“I had been here five years already, training very hard, learning about the systems, the shuttle, the station systems. But, everything really became real when I started to work with them.”

― Philippe Perrin

“I have been very lucky, and I think it all goes back to state subsidy for the arts. I gained my training and confidence and credentials in the not-for-profit world, and in England, that does not mean on the fringe of things. It means right at the centre.”

“I don’t lift weights at all. Every muscle on my body is for an actual task; there is no muscle that I train for show. If I want to be able to do a certain move or action, I train really hard until I can. And with all of that training comes muscle definition, so it’s really an afterthought.”

“Mostly, I was into powerlifting when I was in high school. And I just continued to train the same way I was taught – to powerlift. Once I started doing bodybuilding, there were no real differences, just different exercises. A different way of training with more repetitions, but it was still the same lifting of very heavy weights to get stronger.”

“I went to Afghanistan in ’96 to write about terrorist training camps south of Jalalabad and Tora Bora, in the mountains. I was there right before the Taliban took over, literally a few weeks before they took Kabul. The frontline wasn’t terribly active, but it was definitely there. And they swept into power.”

― Sebastian Junger

“I decided to start a medical training program for freelancers, only freelancers. They’re the ones who are doing most of the combat reporting. They’re taking most of the risks. They’re absorbing most of the casualties. And they’re the most underserved and under-resourced of everyone in the entire news business.”

― Sebastian Junger

“We hope that through these trade arrangements, through collaboration in training, in manpower development, and what have you, ASEAN in, say, ten years’ time, will be a very different ASEAN.”

― Sellapan Ramanathan

“We provide transit facilities, we cooperate in equipping the Afghan army and security forces with arms and helicopters, we cooperate in training officers for law enforcement agencies.”

― Sergei Lavrov

“When I joined the Marines, I went to Quantico for training. One of the first things I learned is that you can drop out of a run, a couple runs. You can fail the test or a couple tests in a row, and they’d give you a second try. But if you lied about anything, you were gone that afternoon. That’s how important integrity is in the military.”

― Seth Moulton

“It shouldn’t be easier for a company to get a tax break on buying another robot than training their employees to gain new skills for the modern economy.”

― Seth Moulton

― Seth Numrich

“Over the course of three years or so, I’ve been able to create a nice little Rolodex of CrossFit gyms. I’ve ingratiated myself to the community, and that allows for a much more accessible training session as far as privacy is concerned.”

― Seth Rollins

“Before I discovered CrossFit, I was really just doing regular bodybuilding, didn’t understand athletic training and movements. I didn’t even know how to squat, necessarily.”

“Every day, I do training. Sometimes at midnight I train, sometimes 4:30 in the morning as well.”

― Shahid Afridi

“I believe the term ‘head coach’ has been misunderstood, though not by Slavisa nor nearly every one of the other candidates we interviewed. Slavisa avidly embraces the concept of head coach, which is to be on the pitch, training, organising, planning, and everything that comes in preparing for and leading the Club on match day.”

― Shahid Khan

“Musicals are not something I have had vigorous training in. But it’s definitely something that I want to do. I don’t like to be afraid of anything. I don’t want to feel like there’s something that I can’t do.”

― Shalita Grant

“When I was young, it was fun being in the locker room and shagging balls in the outfield in spring training. But I couldn’t keep my attention on the games for more than 30 minutes. I would sit there with my Game Boy the whole game.”

― Shane Larkin

“Bringing exercise bands, ankle weights, and a jump rope is a great way to work out while you’re traveling. You can find amazing workout videos online to help with your training.”

― Shanina Shaik

“My father talked about training as being more about the human spirit than just about your muscles.”

― Shannon Lee

“We can have skills training in mindfulness so that we are using our attention to perceive something in the present moment. This perception is not so latent by fears or projections into the future, or old habits, and then I can actually stir loving-kindness or compassion in skills training too, which can be sort of provocative, I found.”

― Sharon Salzberg

― Shawn Johnson

“Training with Billy Robinson is just like any martial artist who would go to the old master of the art. He’s so knowledgeable.”

― Shayna Baszler

“I did some really heavy, intensive clinics with Billy Robinson. Anyone that knows anything about Billy, he was a mean old dude! I survived training with him and Josh Barnett, right in the same vein, my head coach for, like, 12 years.”

― Shayna Baszler

“I think seeing me cross over to pro wrestling and having fun – I get up in the morning, and I’m not a morning person. My alarm goes off, and I’m back out and training again.”

― Shayna Baszler

“It’s not like I’m training every day by doing an avalanche suplex off the top turnbuckle.”

― Shayna Baszler

― Sheila E.

“The training of the schools should be extended to the heart as well as the mind and hand.”

“To become comfortable with uncertainty is one of the primary goals in the training of a physician.”

― Sofia Vergara

“When I was at Hamburg, 17 or 18, Ruud van Nistelrooy signed, and he helped me a lot. He saw my first training session, and he talked to me. He told me I was a good player. He gave me confidence, and I want to thank him for that.”

― Sonny Bill Williams

“Beforehand you think, ‘Oh, changing nappies – I’m going to be up; I need to get sleep for training.’ But when it happens, when you’re there, as soon as you hear a wiggle or a cough or something, you’re up straight away. It doesn’t bother you.”

― Stanley Hauerwas

“I think that what’s happening is that girls are enjoying playing. It’s a lot more acceptable, and now we have a Women’s Super League with hugely dedicated female role models – really committed players who people can see are dedicated and training as hard if not harder than any male players – that’s all progressing the sport.”

― Steph Houghton

“When you’re training every day, recovery is so important. I find that foam rolling helps me to make sure I don’t get tight anywhere so that I keep mobilised and keep on top of things.”

― Steph Houghton

“Preparing youth for employment requires training that is demand-driven to meet the needs of companies and ensure that young people are taught marketable skills.”

― Stephen A. Schwarzman

“I think there have to be Bachs and Beethovens. We may have – there are so many more people. Musical training is available to so many more, but it may be that we’ve hit a right wall in terms of accessible styles and since we demand innovation as a criterion of genius, there may not be more innovative styles to be found.”

― Stephen Jay Gould

“The capture, taming, training and keeping of eagles is highly ritualized. Most of the birds, which have a life span of about 40 years, are caught when very young – either snatched from a nest or trapped in a baited net.”

“I approach spring training the same way every year.”

― Steve Clevenger

“I use a lot of balance training and functional training. Basically it’s where you add an element of instability to a regular exercise. So whether it’s on the physioball or the Bosu ball or just balancing on one leg, I try to incorporate an instable plane and/or movement to the exercise, so the body’s doing two or more movements.”

― Steve Nash

“On its surface, the HBO documentary series ‘Hard Knocks,’ about the New York Jets’ training camp, resembles another HBO series, ‘The Sopranos.’ Both star the stout patriarch of a New Jersey ‘family’ preoccupied with food, intimidation, and florid profanity.”

― Steve Rushin

“All musicians practice ear training constantly, whether or not they are cognizant of it. If, when listening to a piece of music, a musician is envisioning how to play it or is trying to play along, that musician is using his or her ‘ear’ – the understanding and recognition of musical elements – for guidance.”

― Steve Vai

“Nursing demands vigilance about people. The sights and smells that a patient offers, their movements and their offhand comments all contribute crucial information to understanding what they need. Training and experience heighten one’s ability to see what needs to be seen.”

― Summer Sanders

“Being a pro athlete doesn’t mean you treat your body right, even though it’s so important to what you do. Being a runner and training for important races has taught me more about how to fuel than swimming ever did. I realize it’s a process and part of the commitment.”

― Sun Yang

“I love working out at the gym, especially weight training. Therefore, my personal de-stress mantra is exercising.”

“We need to do teacher training to educate them about what temperament means. Shyness is painful and you want to help a child with shyness – but the underlying temperament of being a careful, sensitive person is to be honoured, valued and respected.”

― Susan Cain

“So I’m studying ballet every day and really training so people will see me as a ballet dancer, which no one’s seen before.”

― Tanc Sade

“I think the reason Buddhism and Western psychology are so compatible is that Western psychology helps to identify the stories and the patterns in our personal lives, but what Buddhist awareness training does is it actually allows the person to develop skills to stay in what’s going on.”

― Tara Brach

“When I’m not training day in and day out I love to go out and dance, even though it is potentially in my contract that I’m not allowed to do that.”

― Taylor Phinney

“I studied philosophy, religious studies, and English. My training was writing four full-length novels and hiring an editor to tear them apart. I had enough money to do that, and then rewriting and rewriting and rewriting.”

― Ted Dekker

“I started playing around with GoPros on my own to get some cool footage. But it’s actually become a big training tool for my team and me.”

― Ted Ligety

“If history, philosophy and so on vanish from academic life, what they leave in their wake may be a technical training facility or corporate research institute. But it will not be a university in the classical sense of the term, and it would be deceptive to call it one.”

― Terry Eagleton

“I think what medical training does is it gives you the language, the tools to look up facts. I think medical training gives you a sense of how to approach a problem, how to look at symptoms and go down the list of what it might be.”

“Tasha Steelz, I’ve watched a few of her training videos, and she is super athletic.”

“After intensive body building for eight years, I went to the U.S. for training. There, I learnt the art of wrestling. Later, I went to Japan and joined a wrestling group.”

― The Great Khali

“India has plenty of talent. If they are imparted with proper training, the country will surely produce scores of wrestlers, better than me. I want more and more Indians to participate in the game.”

― The Great Khali

― Thomas Huxley

“Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?”

― Thomas J. Watson

“Back when the UFC first started, I wanted to see what MMA was all about; at the time, I was training with Tank Abbott, and so I went to see him fight. While at the fight, I saw this guy fighting that I just crushed in high school wrestling, and I thought, ‘Hey, I’m a street fighter, and I have a wrestling background,’ so I gave it a shot.”

“To realize President Obama’s vision of opportunity for all, it’s all about making the right match. The way we do that is through job-driven training – connecting ready-to-work Americans with ready to be-filled jobs.

― Tony Bellew

“For many years, I’ve always been attached to what they call the Great American Songbook, and Kern was a great leader of that because he had the classical training of Europe.

“I was training in Gleason’s Gym on 30th and 8th Avenue, where it was the Mecca of boxing, and a guy walked in who couldn’t rub two quarters together and said, ‘Did you ever think of being on TV?’ And somehow I ended up in ‘Taxi,’ which is the craziest thing of all.”

― Valentina Shevchenko

“When I was 12 there was a big shift in mindset and I realised that if I want to get something out of it then I need to work hard and focus all my energy just for this sport and that’s when I started training and taking things more seriously.

― Valtteri Bottas

― Vernon Wells

They will find themselves closer to their fans and will also get their word across more effectively.”

― Vijender Singh

― Vincent Cassel

“I remember having a discussion at some stage and saying a coffee machine would do well in the training ground.

“All men cannot go to college, but some men must; every isolated group or nation must have its yeast, must have, for the talented few, centers of training where men are not so mystified and befuddled by the hard and necessary toil of earning a living as to have no aims higher than their bellies and no God greater than Gold.”

― W. E. B. Du Bois

― Wesley Snipes

“At the secret CIA training facility called ‘The Farm,’ aspiring case-officers learn how to recruit spies and steal secrets. As a former CIA officer, this is where I was taught that in order to successfully recruit an asset, I must first understand what would motivate an individual to cooperate with the CIA in the first place.”

― Will Hurd

“I learned in my Ph.D. the discipline I needed to be successful. Most boxers are not that disciplined. They have talent, but the self-organization – the ability to schedule yourself and your priorities – is lacking. My studies were about the control of training on both the psychological and the physical side.”

― Wladimir Klitschko

“I run, but boxing conditioning is different, so you have to get used to running in the ring. Boxing movements are very different. Swimming is one of the best because every single muscle is working. I swim a lot. I train very hard at things that mimic boxing. I have to do mostly sport-specific training, such as lots of sparring.”

― Wladimir Klitschko

“The players often show much more qualities in training than we do in games.”

― Wojciech Szczesny

― Yami Gautam

― Zac Efron

“I never had any film training. I went to Northwestern. I studied education and theater. So it was all theater training.”

― Zach Gilford
