It's all in the cards for kid-friendly exercises

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fitness trainer Michelle Yeager Turner says fitness is all in the cards this winter.

If you have kids of any age, most likely they will be home for several weeks for the winter break.

Teachers loves this, but many parents get nervous about cabin fever and keeping their family entertained. Fitness Trainer Michelle Yeager Turner shows us how a simple deck of cards can bridge education, fitness and fun together!

Here's how it works:

Use a deck of cards. Each suit will represent an exercise. One person selects a card. Whatever the number, everyone does that number of exercises with the corresponding exercise. If the joker is selected - everyone gets to rest for 60 seconds. After going through the entire deck, you actually end up doing 85 of each exercise.

About Michelle Yeager Turner:


Getting active and motivated is tough for many women--especially after having a baby. But Michelle Yeager-Turner had many challenges to bring her beloved son Maximus into the world. Gymnastics as a child, cheerleading in high school and even competitive bodybuilding couldn't prepare her for the toll it took on her body. Add ten weeks bed rest, and Michelle was ready to get moving, after her son arrived.

But she found it difficult to work out because not many gyms were sympathetic to her son crying in daycare. So Michelle found another way. She created her own at-home workouts. She learned a lot about herself and what it takes to get back on track.
