A Workout of My Own

Punk rock fitness, currently already in progress in places like the Lower East Side in NYC, has hit the metro area.

From Metro Times:

“If you have been avoiding the gym because you just can’t stand the J-Lo and disco music…then look no further—musical respite is here. Punk Fitness is a low-impact workout set to the sounds of bands like the Clash, the Sex Pistol [sic], and Sham 69…Put down the PBR, fatty, and get some exercise at Small’s (10339 Conant, Hamtramck); call 313-873-1117 for futher information. Select workout songs from 8-8:20 p.m.; exercise begins at 8:30 p.m.”

Now if we could get something like this going in Ann Arbor.



  1. Hard to imagine there is a huge market of punk rockers who stopped going to the gym because of the music. Neat idea though.

  2. I’m curious as to what their idea of ‘punk’ is.

  3. I find that my iRiver IFP-880 does a wonderful job of providing whatever genre of music I desire during my time at the NCRB. Neat idea, if you’re into the group work-out thing, though!
