Let me start by saying this: I am not a gym person. I’m generally in pretty good shape, but I am the first to admit that I would be in significantly better shape if I worked out. I justify the whole not-working-out thing by saying that since I live in New York City, I walk everywhere, so at least I get a boatload of cardio every day; but yeah. I should probably go to the gym. Then I saw the video of the Tempest Freerunning Academy over at Buzzfeed with its Super Mario-themed space. Yes, you heard me: A SUPER MARIO GYM. If I were capable of the remarkable feat known as freerunning, I would totally go to that gym. Here are some other video game-themed gyms that, sadly, don’t exist, but if they did, I would be the first one in line for them. Who’s with me?
