Move over traditional aerobics classes: The Takafuji Ukon Samurai Camp is the new and fun way to shed the pounds. Located in Japan, the Samurai Camp is a gym where people learn how to use a Katana sword to lose a few extra pounds.

Takafuji Ukon knew that dance has always been a great way to take care of those extra inches, but Ukon says that no one has previously combined dancing with swords. The Takafuji Ukon Samurai Camp has helped people lose up to 11 pounds in just one month. This gym sounds pretty awesome to me--lose weight and learn how to use a sword at once!
