For decades, office workers have been leading a sedentary lifestyle due to a lack of physical activity at the workplace. As a result, they often feel lethargic and are at risk of multiple health problems such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and sometimes even death. Fortunately, using desk exercise equipment provides an opportunity for office workers to improve long- term health, without having to take a break from work. Listed below are some effective and affordable in-office exercise equipment that can help you get started on an effective workout at your desk.
1: Resistance Bands
These exercise bands are discreet enough for your desk and can give you a thigh, hip and core workout without having you leave the comfort of your chair.
2: Hand Exercise Balls
Squeezing these exercise balls not only helps strengthen your wrists, hands, and forearms but also helps relieve stress and tension.
3: Stability Wobble Cushion
Also known as stability discs, these inflatable cushions keep you a little off balance when you stand or sit on them. As a result, you are forced to use your muscles to remain still and balanced. The cushions can be used to activate your core while you sit on your office chair.
Using desk fitness equipment can get you physically active at work, helping you to think more clearly, focus better and feel more refreshed all through the day.
