Manchester gym launches Star Wars inspired Jedi fitness class

Lightsabers in the ready – a Manchester fitness center is starting a Star Wars motivated class to celebrate May the Fourth.

The Jedi Workout will see gym-goers swap their lycra and weights for lightsabers and robes as they master the motions they’ll need to conquer a Sith Lord, should they run into one.

The course will be on the timetable for one day just in David Lloyd Manchester, in Trafford City, on Thursday May 4.

Manager Jake French said: “We know that many of our members – young and old — are huge fans of Star Wars and what better day for them to participate in a Star Wars themed work out than on May 4th, ” Star Wars Day?

“Whether you are a die-hard enthusiast or not, then the work out claims to get the heart racing and will have everybody ready to equal Luke Skywalker using their light saber abilities. May the fourth be with you in David Lloyd Manchester.”

Sessions will take place at 11am for adults, with all household sessions for all those with children aged five to 11 in 4.30pm and 5pm, and over-11s at 6pm.

May 4 is now celebrated as Star Wars Day all over the world, evolving from the movie series’ short term phrase: ‘Will the force be with you’.
