Piplup from Pokémon hits up Gold’s Gym in Japan for workout video series

Pokemon Pokémon Piplup hits up Golds Gym in Japan for a workout video series Gold's Gym

It’s a new year, and The Pokémon Company wants to remind us to stick to our New Year’s resolutions with a workout video series featuring Piplup at a Gold’s Gym in Japan. The series started as a project starring the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl water starter Piplup performing various activities.

The title of the first video is “yearning for a steel body ~Piplup goes to Gold’s Gym~ (beginner level).” It features Piplup and a Gold’s Gym trainer who teaches a simple training menu that you can do at the comfort of your home. The beginner level consists of three 30-second exercises that anyone can do. The first exercise is a squat for 30 seconds, followed by side lunges for 30 seconds. The third one is 30 seconds of elbow-to-knee twists.

Again, these were simple exercises for the beginner level. The next video will have intermediate level exercises, so keep an eye out for more.

Watch Piplup at the Gold’s Gym in Japan in the workout video below:

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is just over three weeks away from launch, so it might be a good idea to get some exercise done earlier so that we can be complete couch potatoes later. For now, learn more about the Diamond and Pearl Clans in our previous report or watch the original trailer if you have a lot of catching up to do.
