Spring is lurking in the near distance. You might think we’re pushing it a little by saying that we can feel the temperature rising, but honestly, we feel the change. With that comes the need to get back into shape. The season of fat-cakes and creamy soups is fast coming to an end and we all need to prepare accordingly. The “I don’t have time to go to gym” excuse is jaded now. Here are some innovative ideas to help keep your team fit as they work.
Not doing any physical activity is extremely unhealthy. This can result in a lot of health conditions, such as various heart diseases, obesity and many more. In actual fact, inactivity can be one of the biggest risk factors for cancer. Working an office job that requires you to be at your desk throughout your shift does not necessarily mean you should give up on being healthy completely. Walking desks are all the buzz in fitness circles. At the most basic level these are treadmill fitted desks, allowing you to walk while you work.
If your idea of keeping fit has less to do with actually moving, and more to do with sitting then getting a balance ball to replace your chair can be a fantastic idea. They are affordable and easy to maintain, what’s more? You get fit without even realising it.
Routine Exercise Bites
For those who are not afraid to push the envelope a little and be radical about their fitness. Taking routine exercise bites can be fun. You can either do 10 sets of lunges every two hours or replace the lunges with other moves that you may like such as jumping jacks and sit ups.
Whatever your taste, whatever fitness level you might want to reach, do make sure that you stay active. This does not require an appointment with a fitness trainer for the elite and distinguished, you can’t fast-track your journey to fitness today with small bouts of activity ever so often throughout your day.
