We all get bored of our usual workout routines. I am constantly trying to discover and build fresh routines for my clients, PE classes and bootcamps.
Here are 2 workout games you can bring with you anywhere. You just need a set of dice and/or a deck of cards. In all games all clients perform every move at the same time. Although each client gets a turn to roll the dice or pull cards this is an individual challenge.
Please ensure all clients perform a 5 minute warm-up prior to beginning games.
2 minutes light jog or stairs
30 seconds of: Walking Lunges, Body Weight Squats, Torso Twists, Butt Kicks, Leg Swings, Toe touch pulses
Roll The Dice
Equipment: 1 set of dice (2) & a piece of paper/white board and a pen
1) Write down 12 exercises
1 - Sprints
2 - Suicides
3 - Squat Jumps
4 - Plank Walks
5 - Sizzor Jumps
6 - Burpees
7 - Mountain Climbers
8 - Push-Ups
9 - Quick Feet
10 - Curtsy Jumps
11 - Sumo Walks or Jumps
12 - Walking Fwd or Bkw Lunges
2) Each client rolls the dice twice.
- First Roll indicates the number of sets of the exercise. One set is 20 seconds long
- Second Roll indicates which exercise
Body of Cards
Equipment: A deck of Cards & a piece of paper/white board and a pen
1) Divide the piece of paper/white board into 4 sections. Label each section with a card category (Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs, Spades). List 3 exercises for each category. Client must perform all exercises/category
2) Each card = the number on the card
Face cards = 10
Joker cards = pull again & clients must dbl that number of reps
Ace cards = Asshole Ace Holds: Add a 30 second hold in addition
Full Game Example (for the pretty ones)
Client Pulls 10 of Spades
*All clients perform 10 Push-ups, 10 Spider Push-ups & 10 Tricep Push-Ups
Next Client Pulls Ace of Hearts
*All clients perform 10 Star-Jumps, 10 Burpees, 10 Mountain Climbers & 30 sec bridge hold

Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. Join me and start moving and feel the difference. Read my blog to get motivation, try the exercises I've posted, contact me for personal training, bootcamps, workout cards or just go for a walk. Any activity is good activity.
