Summary: Fitness dice are an entertaining novelty that get around the fixed nature of workout schedules – by adding a random element. These are relatively cheap – making them ideal gifts for the fitness fanatics among your friends and family. They are an ideal way to break the routine. Perfect for those who love to mix things up a little!
I have covered three popular sets of fitness dice on this page. They can be used in group training situations, as well as individually.
These dice are the best-selling example. They are regular 6-sided dice, though much bigger than those you might have played snakes and ladder with as a kid. They are 6.5cms square, bright orange and come with rounded corners. They are made from vinyl, keeping them sweat proof and easy to clean.
Here is how they are organised:
The idea is that you roll them both together, getting a fresh combination each time. Feedback is hugely positive, with many mentions of buying them (or receiving them) as a gift.

Unless you play Dungeons and Dragons, 12-sided dice will probably look strange to you. This format works brilliantly when it comes to varying your workouts. LifeM has put them in sets of 3, each one will a different set of exercises and number of reps. They are colour coded for easy, medium, or hard.
Exercises you can roll include crunches, jumping jacks, push ups and squats. Rep counts and time counts are used depending on the exercise. As you can stick with one dice, or move up through them to go from a gentle to a tough workout.
Again, positive feedback – with more than one person noting that these dice made their workouts a lot more interesting!

Another brand which has gone with the 12-sided option. These dice come in a pack of 4 (an alternate pack of 3 is available). They are bright green, with colour-coded writing and pictures on them which makes them easy to tell apart.
What is different about these fitness dice is the exercise types covered. While the others focus on cardio / HIIT, these dice have everything from yoga and pilates to strength exercises like dips. They do not separate the reps / times – as each exercise needs it’s own number assigned.
These big. Bold dice have received a lot of positive feedback. Several people note that this is a great set for the family. With the exercises varying, you can each pick your favourite one. The ‘cute bag’ also got a mention.

Summing Up: Fitness dice are a novelty item that proves more entertaining and useful than many buyers first imagine. You can get them to vary your own routines, as a gift, or as something to vary your family / friends group in the gym or park. The 12-sided options give you even more flexibility.
Once you try, you will almost certainly be recommending these dice to fiends!
