Fanboys strike back for fitness

starwarsfitnessToday is a good day for fanboys around the world. First Lego business cards and now light sabor fitness classes. It’s like someone died and went to heaven. For the record, that someone is not me. For me to die and go to heaven I would have had to be casted as the voice for some super smart and sassy cartoon chick that becomes a major blockbuster! Hey, it’s my fantasy and this is my blog!! Back to fanboy fitness – star wars light sabor fitness classes are real. I couldn’t make this stuff up if they paid me. And I wouldn’t mind at all being paid to make stuff up. I’m just saying.

So, here is the scoop:

A new lightsaber-wielding fitness regime lets you work out and geek-out all at the same time. That’s right, the favorite weapon of the Jedi knights (and your little brother) is now the focus of an exercise craze. Longtime Stars Wars fan Master Flynn, 38, is the creator of New York Jedi, which holds lightsaber classes in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The workouts are a mix of martial arts, fencing and play acting — complete with costumes and lightsabers.

Instructors at New York Jedi, who have backgrounds in a variety of martial arts disciplines, help Luke Skywalker-wannabes re-enact fight choreography from their favorite sword-fighting films like “Blade” and, of course, “Star Wars.” They also help participants advance their combat skills in strenuous two-hour sessions.

Would you take a light sabor fitness class to get in shape and learn to defend yourself against your run-of-the-mill siths or storm troopers. Hey, it could happen. I’m not judging. Anyway, here’s a video for you to check it out!
