John Krasinski, “The Office” actor turned buff action star, may have met his workout match with Dwayne Johnson. 

Krasinski told a story on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Wednesday about his experience visiting the private workout setup Johnson takes with him on the road. 

“It’s not a trailer, it’s a full gym,” Krasinski explained. “Emily (Blunt, Krasinski’s wife) just did a movie with him and I said, ‘Could I ever just work out at your place?'”

Johnson said yes – and it turns out, that was a much bigger deal than Krasinski thought. 

“I met the producer for dinner the next night and he said, ‘You know, no human being has ever been in that gym. Will you report back and tell me what it is?” Krasinski recalled. 

He said yes, expecting a gym like any other. What he found instead: “It was like alien spaceships had landed.” 

“He has, like, 40 pieces of equipment that I’ve never seen in my life,” Krasinski said. 

Both actors shared videos on Instagram of their workout day. 

Together they completed the Murph Challenge, a workout challenge and Memorial Day fundraiser created in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan in 2005. The workout entails: a mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats and another mile run. 

“There’s a dude that works out my gym named Dave who wanted to do it with me,” Krasinski says in his video, before Johnson steps into frame. 

“First of all, it’s my gym,” Johnson responds. “And I’m Dwayne.”
