Have you ever used or heard these excuses:
I would workout "but" I'm too tired.
I would workout "but" I have too much work to do.
I would workout "but" I don't know anyone in the class.
I would workout "but" I don't have any workout clothes that fit.
MAKIN' MOVES wants to help you get off your "buts."
The US News and World Report released an article, by Health Day reporter Amanda Garder, that reads, "We need to encourage physical activity even more, especially given that we sit more during the day than we did 100 years ago," said Keri Gans, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association and author of The Small Change Diet.
"The demands of everyday life are competing with exercise." "We just have to make time for it."
Gans recommends that people move at work even if they have what amounts to a desk job. That could mean taking the stairs when you can, walking over to a co-worker's desk when you can and going for a walk at lunchtime. And if your company happens to have a gym or exercise program, by all means, partake.
MAKIN' MOVES at Work will help your employees move more at work and boost company morale with innovative programs such as:
The High 5 Fitness Break
