It’s all about the workout! Welcome to 1SpeedTraining, a new fitness and wellness website. For today’s first post, I would like to talk a little bit about “sitting.” Because in order for you to improve your fitness levels, well… you’re gonna have to actually move!

Did you know that according to some studies, that globally speaking, people sit – on the average – 7.7 hours a day, and SOME people up to 15 hours?? People, that’s not good.

As difficult as it is to remember to get up and move around – especially when you’re in the middle of a project that’s taking all your concentration, you really should consider setting a timer every hour and just getting up to move around.

Also, you can use a standing workstation. In fact, to follow my own advice, I’m currently standing as I type this post.

So, the first step towards better fitness is to be cognizant of how much you are sitting down every day, and then the next step is to change your behavior so that you stand and move around more.

Discuss this with your boss if you’re afraid that he or she is going to have an issue with you standing. I’m guessing that they’ll be totally fine with letting you move around a bit more.

Try it! Take that first step.

Then, come back for more, right here.
