Game of Tone: How to stay fit while watching Season 7

Personally, I like to yell “more wine, girl!” at my significant other while watching Game of Thrones (who’s actually a grown man but did get Arya in that Facebook quiz everyone took, so…).

Game of Tone founder Emily Schromm
Emily Schromm created Game of Tone. Spear, sword, dragon, not included.

But there are healthier ways to enjoy Season 7, like replacing your drinking game with this workout game created by Denver-based star Reebok trainer Emily Schromm.

Schromm loves the show and initially developed the exercises for fellow fans to use while binge watching previous seasons before the premiere, but she helped us tweak them so you can now lunge at the Lannisters all season long.

“People assume fitness is all or nothing—30 minutes to an hour, or not at all. Life is too busy to think that way, and my favorite way to incorporate fitness is to tie it in to the things I love,” Schromm says. “Think out of the box and have some fun. All movement, no matter the setting, will make you happier and healthier.”

All you’ll need is a chair (or the iron throne) and a towel to sweat through the episode. Good luck getting those Khal Drogo abs.
