It may be nearing the end of February, but that doesn’t mean that your New Year’s resolution can’t just be starting. But if that resolution was to start getting to the gym more, you might want to hold out a little bit longer - at least until Power Plant Fitness opens San Francisco’s first cannabis-friendly workout space.
Power Plant is the brainchild of Jim McAlpine, who says that cannabis and working out have long been intertwined, they just haven’t had a platform to interact.
“Cannabis has been part of athletic lifestyles for a long, long time. It’s just been hidden,” McAlpine told RT News.
Those worlds will come together at Power Plant Fitness, where McAlpine says there will be a consumption room on-site, with trainers available to advise on the best ways to get the most from your high, and your workout.
“For people who are new to this, we’re going to have a very hands-on approach that helps them understand how much cannabis to take, when to take it, and why it’s applicable to them,” McAlpine said. “We’ll work out with those people who want to use cannabis and help them figure out if it’s something we want to recommend to them, and then we’ll help them figure out their appropriate dosages.”
Power Plant Fitness already has a home picked out in San Francisco’s Mission District, where the gym is expected to open this May. Memberships will cost about $150-$170 and members will be able to either bring their own weed, or purchase cannabis as a supplement at an on-site dispensary.
