Don’t Just Sit There!
That’s my rallying cry around office work. Sitting at a desk all day is unnatural. It’s simply not what we’re designed for, and it gets darned uncomfortable very quickly. In fact, I’ve written a whole book about this problem.
Here’s what we’ll work on in your office fitness personal training session:
- exercises specifically tailored to counteract painful desk work patterns
- postural awareness visualizations and activities to improve your body awareness exercises
- self myofascial release (SMR) and other self-massage techniques
- strategies to get you moving routinely at work – probably the most important thing you can do for your long-term health
Not only has “sitting disease” become as important a public health problem as cigarette smoking, we are also suffering neck, shoulder, arm, hand, back and other aches and pains at epidemic levels due to our workstyles and ergonomics set-ups.
The specifically tailored office fitness exercises as well as NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis ) routines that you’ll learn can help you keep you comfortable and fit at work.
My training sessions aren’t like what you’ll get from a trainer at the gym. We work in my massage office in the same clothes you wear to work. You’ll be exerting yourself, but most of the routines you’ll learn are designed to be done right at your desk or in a break room and shouldn’t keep you from getting right back to work.
