Video Blog: Office Workout for February

Feel like you need to move more at work?  Want some fun exercises that you can do at your desk? Want to work some fitness into your day? Want to burn more calories than those you merely burn breathing?

Well…join the Associate Wellness Committee as we show you a fun new exercise a month that you can do at work in less than a minute!  We’ll also give you a few frugal pieces of equipment you can buy and keep at work to add a little bit more to your mini workouts.  If you stick with this, and learn one new exercise a month and keep up with it, you’ll have at least 12 new fitness tools you can do no matter what you are wearing to work!  We’ll be traveling around and asking people in different departments and facilities to be part of our quest!

Check out our videos and try the exercises…even in four-inch heels!   Challenge your co-workers to get on their feet and jog their metabolism mid-day never leaving your work station.

Here is this month’s exercise…wall push ups!

 

 

You can work on your upper body bone density while toning your arms and pecs.  If you want to add a fragile twist, use a physioball against the wall and push off the ball!  Balls are available at the Agnesian Health Shoppe!
