World’s First Marijuana Gym is in (Where Else?) California

McAlpine, who is already hosting Power Plant boot camps, wants people to know this isn’t going to be “a stoner gym.” While cannabis use is welcome, the focus is on fitness, he said.

“For the people that it affects the right way, cannabis can make working out fun,” McAlpine said. “If you make it more fun, people are going to do it more.”

McAlpine said personally, cannabis helps him control his weight and focus during workouts. But, he said this isn’t the case for everyone.
