Fit for a Zombie



  • Stacey Greenberg

Just in time for the annual Memphis Zombie Massacre — this Friday at 6:30 p.m on South Main — you can learn how to survive a Dawn of the Dead.

For those of you just as interested in zombie moves as zombie movies, this month's Wired magazine brings us this fun, little class: the St. Charles, Illinois, ZombieFit.

"To prepare for Z-Day, students do cardio, lift weights, and practice parkour maneuvers in a foam rubber mock-up of an urban environment.

'It's about being quick and efficient with your movements,' explains instructor Jess Randall."

To remain healthy — and alive — participants practice climbing, falling, hurdling, and breaking away from a zombie's death grasp.
