Sitting is not quite the new smoking, but sedentary lifestyles and smoking have much in common regarding morbidity and early mortality. Research shows that being sedentary throughout the day is so bad for you that even a daily hour-long workout won’t save you from many chronic diseases if you are inactive for the other 23 hours! In this session, we will review the research on being sedentary and how lifestyle changes beyond—and sometimes instead of—an hour in the gym can help save so many of our clients, family and loved ones from pathologies rooted in being rooted to our chairs.
