Making fitness fun

divider

The main reason why this book was created was to take the repetition and boredom out of fitness routines. Not everyone has the will power to push through multiple sets of sprints, jumps and pushups without starting to feel distracted or letting negative thoughts creep in.

Warlocks and Workouts distracts from the sweat and tiredness through storytelling. For instance:

  • Instead of Pushups, the hero is fighting magic hands which pull them to the floor
  • Instead of Burpees, the hero is ducking under and jumping over attacks from goblins
  • Instead of lunges, the hero is carefully moving along a rickety wooden beam
  • Instead of Planks, the hero is hiding in a shadow and trying not to be spotted
Goblin image

You Punch out at the goblin as you begin to feel the rumble of the canal gates close.
...It dodges several of your attacks then punches your stomach with its bony mitts.

Themes

divider
This story has been written with a young adult audience in mind. We used "Indiana Jones" style logic in a lot of the combat, leaning towards slapstick violence for encounters.
This means:
  • There is no death of humanoid creatures in the story
  • Whenever a fight occurs, blades miss or malfunction, causing them to be discarded
  • Enemy minions like goblins are dealth with through punches. When they're defeated, they are knocked out and start snoring
  • The defeat of monsters like one giant eel occurs out of the story, offscreen
  • Skeletal summons from Grizumund dissolve to magic
  • The worst word used in the entire book is 'Damn'

That said, there are spiders, snakes, skeletons, spikes, giant clockwork monsters, and weapons in the story. Consider your audience when introducing this content.
