Health & Fitness

By Kim Taylor

If you’ve dreamed of a product that helps you get in shape on your own terms, at the location of your choice, with the minimum amount of fuss to boot, then the Sane Fitness QuickStart Kit is the bearer of great news. This lightweight and portable deck of cards comes with a long, attachable chain for keeping fitness instruction cards at the ready as you work out. The Sane Fitness cards are an awesome personal trainer in a deck – and far less expensive.

Cards are color and number coded for easy organization by workout type, and each card describes the proper technique for a given exercise in addition to positions you should avoid. For example, two things to avoid or to double-check when trying a dumbbell squat would be: keep your chest lifted and shoulders back, and don’t arch your back. The photographed examples of proper stance on the deck’s cards are clear and helpful.

The Sane Fitness exercises range from simple-but-effective to the challenging, and the technique cards can be tucked into your purse for a mid-day workout behind a closed office door. This is an ideal way to squeeze fitness into a hectic schedule, and the deck makes a great gift for everyone. Give yourself a few weeks with the deck, and soon friends will be begging to know your secret. Tell them you’ve gone completely Sane. Available at for $25.
