Bring the Olympics to Your Office With These Fun Ways to Sneak Exercise Into Your Day
Wishing you were at the Olympics instead of your desk job? Wouldn't we all love it if our job was to be active? Or if we had enough time and money to travel to Russia to watch the games? If you're busy grinding away at your 9-5 I have a great way to turn your desk job into something more active and fun... as long as you're not afraid to look a little silly :) Read on to see how you can bring the Olympics to your office and sneak some exercise into your day!
Set up your teamsThe first step is to get some coworkers in on the action. Set up teams of two or more. You could even have different departments compete against each other.
Pick your eventIf you have a lot of people, you can have teams of 4 and each team member will compete in one event. If you have less people, each team member can compete in all events. The possibilities are endless! Here are the competition areas:
- Chair dips
- Desk push ups
- Chair knee tucks
- Walking lunges to wherever you need to get to
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator (I work on the 15th floor, so maybe I'll just be taking the stairs down after work)
- Anti-gravity jump lunges
- Wall sits
- Stall squats
- High knees
