Keeping kids in shape is very important to most parents, but for kids on the spectrum it is especially important because it’s very easy for them to lose muscle mass. FitDeck Junior is a totable deck of exercise cards designed for kids ages 4-14. These cards require no extra equipment and can be done anywhere, anytime. They make exercise simple, fun, and convenient.

These cards are great because you can shuffle the deck to make it more interesting. Plus, you can make games with them or other incentives to get kids moving. Each card contains the name of the exercise, a picture of it, various levels for size and fitness level, suggested reps and other exercise ideas. The cards are fun and easy to use and Quinn has had a blast learning new movements and I love that it’s keeping him in shape and building muscle mass for him.

FitDeck Junior can be purchased from the Therapy Shoppe’s website at This deck retails for $14.99.

Thank you to the Therapy Shoppe for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon.

    This does sound like fun. I have been trying to keep exercise as part of my daily routine. I have a cardio app on my Kindle which does basically the same thing. It is great for fitting short workouts into the amount of time that you have.

    This is a great, fun way to get the kids excited about excercise and show them that it can be fun too. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea.
