7 Ways To Work Out At Work
Plan walk-and-talk meetings
Instead of sitting down at a table, take a brainstorming stroll with a colleague. If you need to keep notes, book a distant conference room.
Get fit on the phone
Stand up to double your calories burned while you chat. Pace or march in place and you can blast about 225 calories for every hour you rack up throughout the day.
Use a small water glass
You’ll boost your step count getting up for refills and bathroom breaks. Bonus plateau-breaker: Use the facilities on a different floor.
Buy a desk stepper
Burn around 91 calories in 20 minutes (without standing up!) with an under-the-desk cardio machine that works like a mini stair-stepper.
Start “e-mail-free Fridays”
Walk messages to colleagues as much as possible. The habit may stick the rest of the week, helping you lose weight faster.
Find fitness buddies
Challenge coworkers to a friendly step-count competition. Wear pedometers to see how much you walk in a week—winner gets a coffee.
