Darebee: Workout Posters for Any Exercise

Darebee: Workout Posters for Any Exercise | technologies | Scoop.it
Free no-equipment visual workouts for all fitness levels.
John Dalziel's insight:
It is helpful to have a visual reminder of personal workout routines. 
It’s one of the reasons why individuals watch workout videos or follow along with TV instructors to get into shape. 
But, to be fair, video isn’t for everyone. 
Darebee lets users put on their headphones and pump away, while simple posters guide their exercise. 
The Darebee site is full of workout posters that can be printed on standard A4 sheets, or on a larger A3 sheet as well. 
Users can choose from a variety of workouts, including some fun ones inspired by popular culture, like “the Batman workout” or “the Hunger Games workout”.
