We all know how hard it is to stay fit at work, particularly those of us who spend much of our time with BIC (Butt In Chair) in front of a computer. The hard thing about it is that you have to stop working if you want to stay active because, well, it's awfully hard to type on your computer when you're running up and down the stairs or doing jumping jacks in the bathroom (which I used to do in my office days, causing no end of embarrassment when co-workers walked in on me).
I'm a firm believer that we all need regular activity breaks from the computer, both for mind and body, but there's something out there that may allow you to exercise while you work. It's called a FitDesk and it's awesome.
I never thought I'd use the word awesome when describing a stationary bike but, in this case, it's true. In fact, I'm actually typing this as I pedal on my FitDesk bike. Yes, my cats stare suspiciously at this contraption and my husband thinks I'm weird, but it really is a great idea and very well-executed.
Now there are other choices out there - a treadmill desk comes to mind - and it won't work for everyone, but if you work at home or you have space in your office, it's one more way to stay active while you work.
