Exercise was never meant to be a chore. When we were kids, recess was the best time of the day because we could run and play to our heart’s content. Through active play, we learned how to move our bodies, build friendships, and overcome obstacles. As grown ups, many of us lose touch with our love of exercise. We start to think of it as something we have to do, rather than want to do, and we make every excuse not to do it.
The goal of PlayOut is to remind adults that exercise is fun, and to teach kids how to get fit for life. With PlayOut: The Game of Fitness, you can exercise anywhere, anytime, without any equipment, and you can play with friends and family. What could be better than achieving your fitness goals while having fun with your loved ones? 3-5 minutes of PlayOut a day will make you stronger, faster, more flexible, more focused, and more capable in your physical activities and daily life.
So whether it’s playing a game of PlayOut: The Game of Fitness, or playing your favorite sport or active hobby, find what makes fitness fun for you, and reconnect with your inner child as you exercise. Jump in, have fun, and enjoy each moment. Why workout when you can PlayOut?!
The Upper Body allows us to push, pull, throw, and grab objects. The exercises in Playout focus on your pushing, throwing and grabbing muscles, so you may want to supplement these movements with pull–related exercises like Pull-Ups.
Core muscles connect the lower and upper body, and are therefore the most important muscle group for coordination and athleticism. Core muscles also recover faster than any other muscle group, so you can do these exercises every day!
The Lower Body exercises build a stable foundation for all physical activity and ground sports. Caution: If you have any knee issues, we recommend modifying or removing the jumping exercises.
Stretches keep the body healthy and increase our range of motion. When we stretch, we bring oxygen and nutrients to our muscles, and that keeps us from getting too sore. We recommend doing at least 5 stretch cards after each exercise session. Note: Be sure to breathe deeply into each stretching pose for 5-15 breaths
WildCards add modifications onto the exercises to increase difficulty and intensity. Players can play a WildCard on their exercise to get more points, or play on opponent’s exercises to slow them down. WildCards are worth the same amount of points as the exercise they are completed with.
MiniGames are quick competitions that test your strength, endurance, and willpower. Use these cards as tie-breakers, or play them after any game to increase the intensity and competition.
