Train like the King of Pirates at Shibuya’s new 'One Piece' gym

If you want to be the King of Pirates in the world of hit anime and manga "One Piece," one might argue what's most important is a killer Devil Fruit or mastery of haki, but it sure doesn't hurt to have a physique like Kaido. Fans of the epic pirate saga now have a chance to aim for those gains while showing their love for Eiichiro Oda's masterpiece, as a new fitness gym inspired by the world of "One Piece" is opening in Tokyo.

Located on the first floor of the Shibuya Modi building, One Piece Fitness BragMen is a gym made for fans of "One Piece," with many decorative and workout-related nods to the popular series all around. For instance, gym guests can workout with dumbbells and barbells shaped like the hunk of meat on a bone that Luffy loves to chow down on, as well as a weighted Shanks vest and a lat pulldown machine with a handle shaped like Whitebeard's beard. The gym even has a one-on-one training plan in which a trainer dressed as a navy officer trains crew members (registered gym members) in individual sessions tailored to their needs.

A pre-opening event saw the gym offer original goods such as a "One Piece" themed shaker, as well as protein powder with flavors inspired by the famous foods of islands the Straw Hat Crew has visited during voyage. Hopefully, these are in regular stock at the gym going forward.

One Piece Fitness BragMen will open on January 13th on the first floor of Shibuya Modi. While pre-registered customers seem to take priority at the moment, those hoping to sign up with the gym and find a swole pirate plan perfect for themselves can do so at the official website.

I'm gonna start at the Hello Kitty gym, then work my way up to the One Piece gym. Maybe by way of the Conan Boy Detective gym.
