More people exercise at work to avoid 'sitting themselves into a coffin'
WASHINGTON (AP) - Glued to your desk at work? Cross that off the list of excuses for not having the time to exercise.
A growing number of people are standing, walking and even cycling their way through the workday at treadmill desks, standup desks or other moving workstations.
Others are forgoing chairs in favor of giant exercise balls to stay fit.
Walking on a treadmill while making phone calls and sorting through emails means "being productive on two fronts", said Mr Andrew Lockerbie, senior vice president of benefits at Brown & Brown, a global insurance consulting firm.
