FitDeck Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the chance to review FitDeck.  I chose the body weight one since I work out at home and love body weight exercises.  It comes in a handy little case that you can store the cards in when not using them.  I like that a lot.  There are lots of different decks to choose from including prenatal, pilates, soccer, cross train, and boso-ball.

FitDeck, Inc. was founded in 2004 by fitness entrepreneur and inventor Phil Black. Black came up with the idea to create FitDeck after combining the fun of a card game he used to play in college with the rigors of his Navy SEAL training.

My deck is color coordinated into four categories
  • upper body
  • middle body
  • lower body 
  • full body
Some of the moves were very common ones that I had heard of before like pushups, lunges, jumping jacks, and crunches. Others were new to me like belly angels and lizards.

There are lots of ways to use the cards.  Here are a few they suggest:
  • Choose a set number of cards and do a different card every 60 seconds (including rest)
  • Perform 10 repitions of each exercise without resting in between
  • Perform 1st card at beginner level, 2nd at intermediate and 3rd at advanced, then repeat the cycle
  • Draw one card every hour and perform the selected exercise
  • Do all the cards of one set, meaning just the upper body or lower body, etc.
You can create your own ways to use them too.  I have used them a couple times in interval workouts.  I pick 4 to 6 cards and perform the exercise for 30 seconds rest 10, then go on to the next.  Each exercise gets performed 4 to 6 times.  Or until exhaustion.

Here are some other FitDecks that I think I need to try now.

Want to try one for yourself? These decks cost about 14.95 each, though some are a little more.  They would make great stocking stuffers!
