I might be late to the party (seriously, why haven’t I heard of these before!), but I’m in LOVE with Fit Decks! A friend of mine recently ordered the bodyweight deck and we played with it this morning. Ah-mazing! We got sweaty, had lots of fun, and personally, I liked not having to pre-plan the workout.
Fit Decks are an inexpensive way to take the thinking out of your workouts, and mix things up from time to time. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you can use Fit Deck pretty much anywhere to get a challenging workout. Most decks cost between $10-$15 and can be used over and over again.
Shuffle & go OR use the cards as a circuit maker. You can play with friends, solo, bring it to the park/gym or use it while you travel.
Hot Fit Decks Work
Fit Decks are unique decks of Exercise Playing Cards which come in 56-card and 26-card Booster decks.
56-card FitDecks specialize in bodyweight-only exercises (i.e. Bodyweight, Junior, Senior, Yoga, Pilates, Stretch, Prenatal, and Postnatal).
26-card Boosters may require certain equipment (i.e. Exercise Ball, Pull Up bar, Dumbbell, Office, Travel, Kettlebell, etc.).
Boosters can be used as a standalone workout or they can be combined with other FitDecks to create an even more challenging routine. Shuffle cards before every workout to get a random sampling of upper, middle, lower, and full-body exercises.
Modifications for ALL levels: Each card has three fitness levels to accommodate different abilities (beginner, intermediate, advanced).
Its confusing to know what equipment and which products will help you reach your goals faster. I’ve invested in tons of at-home equipment, but more isn’t necessarily better. There are only a few tools that I use on a regular basis.
