We do exercises in the workplace


Change forgotten since the days of the Soviet Union physical activities comes to corporate fitness. Large companies can assist their employees that “charging”, not skimping on costs: invite coaches, equipped gymnasiums, be awarded monetary prizes especially active employees and Vice versa, fine, not too sporty.

But not everyone can boast of such a caring boss. And therefore it is better to take care of himself.

As not to undermine their health, working for the company for a few hours, without leaving your armchair?

And why it is necessary to warm up?

People forced by duty to lead a sedentary lifestyle, quite a lot. Their number is constantly growing and already exceeds 90%. We sit in traffic on the way to work, at work, during lunch, and then again in transport on the way home, home for dinner, watching TV, etc. But if at home we can relax and take a comfortable position, then in the office we occupy a static position. This mainly concerns those who work in companies with strong corporate ethics on everyone’s mind, and maybe even under the gaze of the chief. Yes. there’s not a relax!

Even in ancient times people believed in the miraculous power of the movement. Military surgeon of Napoleon always said that the movement can substitute a different medicine, but no medicine will not replace the movement.

Such workers can lead to General fatigue. Also sitting for a long time fraught with diseases of the spine and internal organs. In addition, vision suffers, because now all the jobs are mostly equipped with computers. Gradually accumulated fatigue and malaise, and, consequently, reduced quality of work and increases the time to run it. Hence the delay in the evenings at work, work in the strengthened mode the next day or catching up on weekends. Even greater fatigue. Vicious circle.
