MANHATTAN – Start Wars mania is taking over New York gyms with a special workout that’s full of the force, and it’s free.

The Star Wars themed light-saber workout is meant to awaken your body.

It coincides with the opening that film you may have heard about. New York Sports Club and Disney are working together on the project to get you healthy.

The classes start this Friday evening at NYSC in Chelsea and SoHo. They run until the end of January.

The classes are free for club members and non-members, all you have to do is show up and you get 45-minutes of a full body session.

Instructors say the class is perfect for all body types – your workout is at your own pace, they say having a light-saber while you sweat is the perk.
