Warlocks and Workouts

Blog News and stuff!
  1. Attention adventurers and soldiers! HQ has just issued new orders and it’s time to pack up our gear and move out. We’re relocating our primary communication channel, the **Warlocks & Workouts Discord server**.

    Effective immediately, all operations will be carried out from our new base, found at https://discord.gg/rupSUd7eYA.

    Why the move? 🚛

    This decision wasn’t made lightly, but it’s a necessary change. Our new server is better equipped to handle the way we want to communicate. Our mission to build the ultimate fitness gaming community remains the same.

    What about the old server? 🏚️

    The old server will remain accessible, but no new updates or announcements will be posted there. Make sure you join the new server to stay in the loop.

    What’s next? 🎮

    We’re incredibly excited to reveal what we’ve been working on for Squat Ops. This game is a revolution in stealth fitness. Imagine, each squat you perform propels you through an immersive world, challenging your stealth and strength in equal measure.

    Squat Ops is slated to launch on iOS, Android, and Steam later this year. We’re also currently investigating the possibility of a Nintendo Switch release.

    So grab your gear, and report to the new server ASAP. We’ll see you there, soldiers!

  8. Raid a long abandoned temple for treasure while working up a sweat at home, or wherever you work out. Warlocks and Workouts is an audio adventure series which is half personal trainer; half audiobook.

    Each chapter is a 20-30 minute HIIT (high intensity interval training) bodyweight workout designed to kick your butt and burn a bunch of calories. You’ll discover rooms riddled with ancient traps, fight though hoards of goblins, and face down bosses with their own unique style of descruction.

    Listen to new episodes of the debut first adventure in the series for free wherever you get your podcasts right now, with new episodes every Friday.

    How does it work?

    Warlocks and workouts is all time based, so its just a matter of starting the chapter and following the instructions of what happens. eg. “You squat low to avoid the low hanging vines, covered with bright thorns dripping with venom. 1, and 2, 1, and 2”

    The start and end of each set is clearly called out, so all you need to focus on is the story, and your workout. Just make sure you bring a set of comfortable shoes and some water!

    How long is the story?

    The first adventure in the series is 19 sessions, or around 9 hours of total exercises. That’s about a month of exercises if you’re working out 4-5 days a week.
