12 ways to work on your fitness… at work!

Posted: June 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

Just found out that I have been nominated for the 40 under 40 by the Orlando Business Journal this year.  What an honor!  

Since HART incorporated is somewhat of a social hybrid organization, with half of our business coming from medical practice development consulting and half of our services devoted to workplace wellness, I know how hard it can be to make the work out on a regular basis.  The business community is one of the most challenging to improve one’s wellness and live a healthy lifestyle… Here are a few exercises to keep you well, even at work!!!

Some of these are completely unreasonable… some are attainable.  But the key is to simply stay aware of your health needs while in and out of the gym. It is imperative that a healthier more active lifestyle becomes a habit, NOT a hassle!

Here is one of my fave exercises that can be done at work (as long as you are not wearing a skirt! lol)

 

Chair Toe Touches: targets your abs, core muscles while sitting anywhere… work, home, gym!

Instructions:
Sit on the edge of a chair, holding sides of the seat for support, lean back and press upper back firmly against the chair.
Lift legs off floor and bend knees to 90 degrees with calves parallel to the floor.
Slowly lower toes to touch the floor, be sure to use your abs to keep back from arching and keep upper body in place throughout the move. Return to start position and repeat.
