Sitting… the new smoking?

Most of us have jobs that require us to sit for LONG portions of the day.  It’s ok, right?  Because you work out most days every week…  A new study suggests that may not be enough!  Read the Runner’s World Article here.  If you have a sedentary job, make sure to take frequent breaks from sitting: to the water fountain, to the printer, or just do a lap around the building!  “Active couch potatoes” might be the new “skinny fat people.”

    Thanks for a great class yesterday, Gretchen! You packed it to the brim with agility, strength and plyometric goodness!!

    Good advice! I don’t like sitting all day. A couple of us at work take laps around the building or try to walk at lunch, which helps a little. But I really wish I had a treadmill desk 🙂

    JD – what a fun group and great energy! That makes the class what it is 🙂 Though the music doesn’t hurt!
