New York Sports Club is again offering a Hunger Games-inspired fitness classed. Dubbed "Train Like a Tribute," the twice a week classes (Mondays at 1:30pm and Fridays at noon at the 61 W 62nd Street club) are free and open to both gym members and non-members.

The gym offered the class last year when the first Hunger Games movie came out. "The second movie is a little bit more intense and so is the program," NYSC master trainer Eli Ingram told the Post. All of the moves reference the movie, including using a bow like Katniss to work the upper back and biceps, cracking a whip like the citizen-punishing peacekeepers, and running intervals on the treadmill with the highest include possible "so it mimics running outside alongside a mountain."
