I have decided that I am going to start taking active steps in becoming healthier in not only in my body but my mind as well and I’ve been told many times by lots of different people that Yoga is one of the best ways to workout not only your body but you mind as well! So I have been taking a Yoga class to go along with my daily exercise routine to help maximize my results! While surfing the internet for helpful exercises products I happened to come upon FitDeck Exercise Playing Cards and I thought that these would be perfect to help me incorporate different exercise routines during the week to keep it fresh and new!
About FitDeck Exercise Playing Cards (Taken From Website):
FitDeck is a unique deck of 56 playing cards containing illustrations and instructions describing over 50 different exercises, stretches, and movements.
These ‘no-equipment’ FitDecks contain exercises that require only your bodyweight to perform. ‘FitDeck Bodyweight’ is our flagship product in this popular series of ‘no-equipment’ FitDecks.
Choose any of these eight FitDeck titles and enjoy the freedom to workout when you want – where you want.
These FitDecks can be used on their own -- or they can be mixed into other FitDecks or FitDeck Boosters to create hundreds of interesting cross-training opportunities.
I was sent three decks of FitDecks Exercise Playing Cards to review, the FitDeck Yoga, FitDeck Junior and the FitDeck Bodyweight!
The first FitDeck I tried out was the FitDeck Yoga and I have to say I love this deck of Yoga cards! I love that I can either pick out a few cards and shuffle them for a unique custom Yoga workout just for me or I can shuffle the whole deck and play them through until I get tired of doing Yoga. I love that each of the cards not only has step-by-step pose instructions but they also offer images showing the pose so you not only read how to do the pose you also get to see it. I’m also loving the different levels in the top right corner of the card and the number of breaths you should hold the pose for your expert level!
I’ve really enjoyed using the FitDeck Yoga on days that I don’t have my Yoga classes and as a pre-workout warm up when I do my daily workouts!
We were also sent the FitDeck Junior to review and I love this deck to do with my little “Bug”! He wants to do Yoga and workout with mommy but it’s so difficult for him to keep up so I do a few of these cards with him a day just so he feels like he is getting to workout with mommy! I think these cards are so fun, they have such cute and fun names that I feel really keep “Bug” interested and makes it so fun for him. Now, he is only 2 and the deck is for ages 5-15 and of course he doesn’t do the exercises just perfect but it does get him up and moving and out from in front of the TV for a while and he seems to have a lot of fun flipping over the cards and trying to imitate the pictures on the card!
The last FitDeck we were sent was the FitDeck Bodyweight cards and I’m really enjoying using these cards along with the Yoga FitDeck we were sent to make my daily workout do double duty and I could not even imagine before that working out daily to get into shape could be so much fun and the fact that I can use FitDeck exercise playing cards to switch it up and mix it up daily makes it something I look forward to daily! The thing I love most about the FitDeck Bodyweight is that I don’t need any equipment what so ever just use my own bodyweight to maximize the exercises. This FitDeck also includes a guide for beginner to advanced so that you get your perfect workout!
I am extremely happy with all three FitDeck Exercise Playing Cards that I was sent to review! Not only do they help shake up my daily exercise routine but it makes it fun and it’s something I’m now waking up looking forward to doing! I love that with the FitDeck Junior I also get to let “Bug” feel like he is working out just as hard as mommy and the last 3 weeks since I’ve been mixing the FitDeck cards in on my daily exercise routine I have lost almost 6 lbs so what could be better!
If you are looking for not only a challenging but fun workout I think you should really check out the FitDecks offered, you have lots of different FitDecks to choose from so now you really don’t have an excuse not to get up and work out!
