Rise young Jedi Padawan. Your training is about to commence.
It can be difficult to be motivated during this really weird time. Personally, I find turning to the dark side of exercise to be a snooze-fest, and I’d prefer to stay frozen in carbonite (and stuck to my laptop screen).
However, for you Star Wars fans that can’t make it to the gym and want to resume your force training, we’ve got you covered. Star Wars fitness is an increasingly popular trend online, as training in the style of everyone’s favorite Jedi or Sith like Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader is fun for the whole family.
If you’re looking to get your nerd fitness on and need a Star Wars workout, look no further than the below videos. Who needs a gym when you have a Jedi training you in the ways of the force. Just remember what Jedi Master Yoda says;
‘Do or do not. There is no try’.

Phew, I think I need a Death Star-sized glass of water after that! I’ll need to get my Han Solo yoga mat out of the attic. These martial arts-inspired workouts are perfect for any would-be Princess Leia or Boba Fett, so give them a try today!
