[Product] Bring Your Workout Anywhere With Exercise Cards; The Simple, Flexible Fitness Solution
Fitness can quickly morph into an absurdly complex, multi-tiered, overly complicated hellbeast. But it doesn’t always have to be that way.
For most people, working out is a habitual, familiar routine. Disrupt that ecosystem, though, and your AM sweat session can easily unravel into a scatter shot, vagabond, inefficient mess.
Think about any time you’ve been airdropped in a remote country, displaced in a miscellaneous hotel, or snowed in without access to a legitimate gym — unless you’ve magically cultivated a full-blown mental encyclopedia of bodyweight exercises, devising an effective workout plan on-the-fly is a massive challenge.
Exercise Cards is a smart, brilliantly simple solution for the times when life tries to disrupt your workout flow. And best of all, it fits squarely in your pocket, purse, or gym bag.
Exercise Cards — Fitness. Simplified.
WorkoutLabs is aiming to streamline fitness with Exercise Cards; an elegant, portable, brutally simple way to bring a stack of workouts with you — anywhere — on the back of calisthenics and bodyweight movements.
Every deck contains 50 exercise cards (41 bodyweight exercises and 9 stretches) — including everything from mountain climbers to walking lunges — that serve as individual building blocks for 5 pre-built workout routines. All cards display a professionally-illustrated exercise demo, easy-to-follow instructions, and sit on top of HQ Bicycle card paper; ensuring that they’ll always hold up against wear-and-tear, reckless kombucha, or spilled protein shakes.
Pre-set workouts run as long as 20 minutes, but don’t be afraid to go rogue and spice things up — draw a set of cards at random for a spontaneous, original, improv workout that changes every time. Pull 8 cards per workout and it equates to 536,878,650 different potential combos (or over 21 trillion different permutations).
Good luck with that one.
And if you’re snowed in with a group of friends and feel like sweating up a storm, throw a workout party. Inherently, some cards — burpees, air squats — are more excruciating than others. You’ll burn a ton of calories, build lean muscle, AND torture your friends in the process.
We asked Artem Lapitski, Founder of WorkoutLabs and Exercise Cards, about what sparked the idea:
“My fiancé and I came up with the idea for the Exercise Cards thinking about what other tools we [could] create for the WorkoutLabs audience — fitness beginners and enthusiasts looking for simple ways to incorporate exercise into their lives [who the deck is geared towards]. Using our beautiful exercise illustrations, the Exercise Cards deck is something simple that will make it very easy to get a workout in anywhere you happen to be.”
The bodyweight deck is only the beginning. If Exercise Cards is successfully funded, expansion packs will follow, including one for yoga and gym exercises.

Exercise Cards is currently live on Kickstarter and, if funded, due to ship in time for Christmas 2013 — $22 per deck (with a 110% money-back guarantee).
