    Trying a standing desk can help. With a standing desk you can even throw in some body weight squats every few minutes!

    I keep telling my clients and students that sitting is the new smoking. Just as toxic.

    These are scary statistics! I teach a corporate workshop for people who sit at a computer all day, and this Fitnographic is part of my handout packet. It's amazing to see the reactions.

    I couldn't agree more. The body was made to move. Get up every hour you are awake and move around. Better yet, find some exercises that you can do anywhere that will benefit your health.
