Exercise Bingo

This is a [Other] pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 13012)

This is a spin off from a bingo pattern I saw on here.

I took masking tape (makes it look more realistic) and taped off the floor in a bingo pattern. (don't forget the water break in the center of the pattern. :)

I then made up signs and taped them to each square block on the floor descibing what you would do in that block. I then photocopied bingo cards (same as what I had on the floor) and gave them out to everyone as they arrived.

I alternated the blocks so that you do one aerobic activity and the next would be a muscle conditioning. I then had a spinning wheel with the corsponding exercises on it. Each block was done for one minute during that time I would spin the wheel and what ever exercise it landed on who ever was doing that exercise they got to check it off their sheet. The first one to get a straight line wins bingo. I had bottles of water for prizes and time permitting you can keep going as long as you want. At the end of each minute you can instruct them to move ahead one block or back etc.

This was a great work out and included lots of laughs. I do one fun night at the end of each season.... winter, spring, summer and fall. You can use it as a instructor night off (while you walk around and make sure people understand what they are supposed to do, or depending on your crowd you can participate.

It was a crowd pleaser for sure and one I will keep adding to. Thanks for all the great ideas on here it sure keeps the people coming back.
