CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Should the zombie Apocalypse ever really happen, it’s important to be prepared to run.

That’s why Rich Gatz created ZombieFit, an exercise class that teaches flabby folks how to shape up in a way that’ll keep them safe if the walking dead escape their graves in search for juicy brains.

The fitness program is based on parkour, which trains people to overcome any obstacle in an urban environment with fast movement and physical strength.

Gatz assures that parkour is not only the way to truly get fit, but will also be very useful for humans in the event of a zombie uprising, or if more realistic danger is afoot.

He says, “If we can prepare for something that is probably never going to happen, we’ll be prepared for anything that will happen.”

However, should someone encounter a zombie that has a background in parkour, Gatz admits they’ll “be in a lot of trouble.”
