In anticipation of his Super Saturday matchup against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, LeBron James hit the gym for an early morning workout session with fitness star Lais DeLeon.

Under the guidance of trainer David Alexander, who is apparently a witness like the rest of us, the two celebrities went through a myriad of exercises together outfitted in what else but Nike attire.

DeLeon was named Alexander's protege earlier today and her first test under the super-trainer was a workout with King James. Lunges, free weights, and resistance training with a four-time MVP, two-time NBA champ and two-time Olympic Gold medalist? Talk about a tough first day.
