Does your office allow work place workouts? Some places of employment encourage this and some do now allow it.
I know of a few places that the employees have rallied together to workout in the office after business hours. They bring a change of clothes and some tennis shoes and sweat it out doing P90X videos together. I think it is great to see people coming together and trying to improve their health. I am sure it is a lot more motivating to workout when you know everyone else around you is going to, and maybe it makes some feel a little more obligated to join in.
I have seen some people do their calisthenics while in their cubicle. They have their head set on and taking calls while doing lunges in front of their desk. If nothing else it is entertaining to watch and the person doing it is burning some calories. I just think about the person on the other side of that phone call hearing them breath heavily and random grunts throughout the call as their legs start to burn even more. It can keep things interesting I guess 🙂
Sitting for long periods of time is not good for any of us. Even if you are not keen on the idea of exercising at work. You can walk the steps during your lunch break or around the block. Every hour try to take an extended bathroom break, get up and walk around, stretch in the bathroom, drink water, freshen up.. just get the blood flowing! This goes for long plane flights as well, try to get up and move every hour or so if possible.
Do you partake in office workouts? Does one of your coworkers hold planks while reviewing proposals? Please do tell 🙂
