Fun + Fitness

Who doesn’t want to have fun while working out?  We sure do so we’re changing it up today.  You’ll need a deck of cards  and yourself to make this workout a success.

Here’s How It Works

Each suit (hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades) represents a different exercise.  Each time you draw a card, you complete the exercise that correlates with the suit and perform the number that is on the card.  (Jacks = 11 Queen = 12 King = 13 Ace = 14) You continue drawing cards until the entire deck is gone! This workout can start out deceivingly easy, but by the time you reach the end of the deck, you are definitely feeling it!

Part of the fun in this workout is, you never know what is coming.  Sometimes you have a few easier patches throughout the workout – if you get lucky and draw a few low numbers back to back – followed by face cards that have you working your butt off. Sound like anything else you’re familiar with, like, oh say, life?  Some easier patches mixed in with some times of struggle?  As much as we try to plan our day and our life, there often are curve balls thrown in.  We can either fight it or accept it. What choice will you make?

Take that go with the flow attitude with you from

the workout to your day. We dare you!
