TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
STAIRCASE WORKOUT

Stairs are tough. Simply walking up them can make even the fittest person huff and puff. But we also know taking the stairs over an elevator is a super easy and realistic way to fit in more exercise throughout the day. So what if you took that notion to the next level and actually used a staircase in your next workout?

STAND UP FOR YOURSELF
RISE UP AGAINST SITTING DISEASE
      
If you are like 75% of working Americans you sit a desk for the majority of your day. Sitting for long periods of time has been linked with a number of health concerns, including obesity, increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels. Too much sitting also seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
 
Find out great ways to combat this trend and stay healthier, even if you sit all day!
