Got Fit?

Looking for a way to get a daily workout that is guaranteed not to get stale and boring?

Do big gyms with steep monthly fees full of exercise maniacs intimidate you?

What if you could get your KIDS excited about exercise and keep your entire family fit?

We’d like to introduce you to fitness poker! Draw five cards from a standard deck, match them to the corresponding cards on the Fitness Poker sheet and perform the exercises listed!  You’ll likely never get the same hand twice and the exercises are easy to get done either all at once, or spaced throughout the day.  They target all the major muscle groups and can give you a full body workout every day.

Dr. Erik started with an idea to challenge his kids to exercise before they sat down to watch any TV this summer.  In a discussion with the guys in his Bible study, he found out the idea had already been on the popular TV show “Shark Tank” as the FitDeck – available at www.fitdeck.com.  We cannot sell this idea to you, but we can offer our version of it to you for free.

Download your exercise sheet HERE and start having FUN getting FIT!
