If you ever wanted to combine your “wake and bake” with your “rise and grind,” Ricky Williams has an idea for you.
The former NFL running back and marijuana enthusiast is launching a weed-friendly gym in San Francisco this fall, according to Time magazine.
Granted, the 49ers better not be caught there, since the NFL and NFLPA’s collectively bargained drug policy prevents players from enjoying that which is legal in two NFL cities.
But if the idea of a little pot with your kettle bells appeals to you, you now have an option.
The gym will be called Power Plant Fitness, and encourages customers to vape cannabis or consume edibles, though there are plans for a smoking area on an outdoor balcony.
“It won’t be a place to get high and just screw around,” said Jim McAlpine, founder of the 420 Games and Williams’ partner. “We are focused on the athletic side, not the cannabis side.”
McAlpine is also pushing some science, offering a “cannabis performance assessment” to determine how marijuana affects workouts.
“We will be helping our members figure out how is best for them to ingest their cannabis,” McAlpine said.
There’s no word as of now whether Williams and McAlpine will also be opening a Taco Bell next door.
