A job that requires you to sit all day can be a detriment to your health. If you work in an office setting you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Along with sitting all day, you’re probably snacking on everything in the break room to keep your mind focused on completing those eight hours of chaos. It’s about time we break those prolonged periods of sitting on your seat cushion because your next stop could be the casket.
A study found that one hour of even the simplest of physical activities with the lowest levels of rigor can alleviate your risk of developing illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The study showed that people who sat for eight hours or more each day and had little to no active movements were 59 percent more likely to die. All of that from sitting in a chair? Yes, your life depends on getting regular exercise, so we called in an expert to help us out with our wellness goals.

60 Minute Circuit Training Workout!
This circuit training workout will keep your heart pumping with a mix of cardio and strength exercises. The key is to move quickly from move to move non-stop for five minutes.
If you need modifications, simply complete the moves without jumping or perform squats and lunges halfway if you cannot get your legs parallel to the floor just yet. Choose weights that will challenge you, but keep in mind that performing the exercises without weights will still be effective.
Work out with a friend and see who can complete the most rounds in each circuit!
- dumbbells (5 – 20 pounds)
- Yoga mat
- Food is very important too. We get into the food you should eat on the next page
Complete as many rounds of each circuit (three circuits) as you can for 5 minutes with no rest between
