Former Marine offers ‘Hunger Games’ training
Are you ready to train like a Tribute?
The New York Sports Clubs is offering a workout designed after the highly anticipated movie “The Hunger Games.”
It was put together by a former Marine and is said to give a little taste of what entering the deadly Hunger Games arena would be like.
First, you have to sprint for your workout supplies.
Then, you go through a circuit of exercises, including weightlifting and bow and arrow drills.
And, in keeping with the spirit of the Games, the class is also a contest.
The so-called tribute who does the most circuits gets a mockingjay pin like the one Katniss Everdeen wears in the book.
Fortunately the punishment for losing isn’t death, just a great workout.
The class is free for anyone through April 25th at Sports Clubs in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington.
The “Hunger Games” opens in theaters at midnight.
