Office Workout and Stretches

Office workers often spend much of their day sedentary and operating office equipment. Australian statistics show that 68.5% of the workforce are either sedentary or have very low levels of activity. Essentially we go to work and sit for eight hours and that fact is having serious effects on our health.

Regular activity helps improve your overall health and fitness. It also reduces your risk for many chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and obesity.
