Welcome to ‘Zombie of the Week,’ folks, where each week we’ll present you with a different brain-eating member of the undead that has captured our fancy. There is no methodology to our Zombie Awesomeness meter, just our own piqued interests. Got a zombie we should see? Comment below. No zombie is too small, too short-lived, or too gross.

There’s nothing like spring to shed some light on the fact that all I did this winter was eat. (But I was cold. Pasta is delicious. Did I mention the cold?) Now, I’m attempting to drag my achy limbs around Brooklyn as I try to make it more than a mile without walking. (Keyword: Try) Hey, I’m a work in progress.

But even my muscles (or serious lack thereof) can be coaxed by a zombie-centric workout. ZombieFit is the brain child of a Chicago-area group of parkour practicing zombie enthusiasts. (Parkour = Art of physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment.) Where else will this particular brand of physical prowess prove itself more useful than during a zombie apocalypse? With workout regimens updated daily and tutorials posted on the site (this ain’t your mom’s exercise video), I think its safe to say your odds of surviving a zombie attack will skyrocket. (Ha ha, yoga fiends.) If anyone knows where I can try this in NYC, let me know.
