What Workout (Or Wellness Activity) Would Your Favorite Game of Thrones Character Do?

Barre
Kickboxing
Personal Training
Meditation
Interval Training

The countdown is *officially* on. Need something to distract yourself from the long-awaited season eight premiere this Sunday? 

Whether you’re loyal to Jon Snow or looking to channel your inner Mother of Dragons, here’s a list of workouts (and wellness activities) that your favorite Game of Thrones character would kill for, if they weren’t all fighting for the Iron Throne.

Daenerys Targaryen

Infrared Sauna: Heat under pressure

Clearly, this daring dragon mom can handle a little bit of heat, so she’d feel right at home during a session of infrared sauna therapy. While most people can only handle 30-minutes at a time, we’d be willing to bet Daenerys wouldn’t break a sweat for hours. It is known.

 

Jon Snow

Cryotherapy: Winter is here

While Jon Snow might know nothing about heat, he’s all too familiar with the cold. Whether he’s treating injuries from venturing North of the Wall or needs to release a few endorphins for that constant brooding, cryotherapy is the solution.

 

Cersei Lannister

HIIT: Power & control

Determined to win at any cost, this truly badass babe would be all about a good HIIT class. Extra disciplined, yet filled with inner rage, she could sweat it out while holding a glass of red wine, rolling her eyes at you for falling behind.

 

Arya Stark

Kickboxing: Train like a northerner

When she’s not fighting as a Faceless Man, the youngest Stark is all about high-intensity. Independent, adventurous, and unique, it’s clear her workout of choice would be something as intense and fierce as kickboxing.

 

Tyrion Lannister

Personal Training: A wise workout

With a quick tongue and razor-sharp wit, this son of Tywin Lannister knows all the things. The character with the most intellect and sage advice, we *definitely* want him guiding our next personal training session.

 

Bran Stark

Meditation: Find your zen

How did Bran become the Three-Eyed Raven? Meditation. JK, it’s magic but IRL we’d like to think he achieved guru status when it comes to inner stillness.

 

Jaime Lannister

Bootcamp: Strong & agile

House Lannister keeps it lean. Whether he’s fighting Daenerys and her dragons or taking a long journey with Brienne, bootcamp is the perfect workout to keep the Kingslayer crushing it all winter (and summer) long.

 

Sansa Stark

Barre: Damsel in distress no more

The eldest Stark daughter might have been all about a blowout in her early years, but heading into season eight, we’ve been introduced to a whole new Sansa. Cool, calculated, and confident. Basically, don’t get on her bad side. We think the Lady of Winterfell would fit in nicely at a barre class, tucking ever so precisely with the ultimate control and patience.

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
