Exercise Block – A Funny Printable Gift


As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Here is a very simple project that should get a few laughs! I call it the “Exercise Block”, and before any of you tune me out, let me just say that this is funny, no exercise required!

NOT exercising is kind of our thing around here! (Ain’t nobody got time for that!) We’ve shared our Gym vs. Sweatpants Quote, our Chubby Unicorn Printable, as well as our Funny Dieting Quote, but this exercise block just might be our favorite “Anti-Exercise” printable we’ve created to date!

Funny Exercise Block Gift

Anyone else sitting here thinking that summer is about 2 seconds away from happening and yet, our body still isn’t “Summer Ready?” It’s ok, my friends, I’m right there with you!

This exercise block printable is a fun gift idea for someone who needs a good laugh or pick-me-up! I’ve made these in the past by sanding, painting and mod podging wooden blocks… but our newest design is even easier than that!!!! Simply download and print the file below, cut and assemble the paper to resemble a block, and you’re good to go!

Here is what the exercise block says –

Instructions – 

  1. Place block on floor.
  2. Walk around it in a circle.
  3. Repeat.
  4. Sit down.
  5. Relax and rehydrate.


You just walked around the block. TWICE!

and here is how to make it –
