I’ve let myself get really out of shape over the past few years. A combination of some nagging injuries, depression, marriage, job troubles, and so on have really put the pounds back onto me after I worked very hard to get them off. I’ve recently started doing DDP Yoga and making myself get up from my desk every hour or so to walk around a bit, stretch, and generally get the blood out of my feet and back into the rest of my body. So far so good; I haven’t noticed any weight difference, but I feel better and my life-long back problems have lessened quite a bit. However, that said, it’s easy to forget just what I’m supposed to do and when I’m due to move about a bit, so it might be time to consult a gadget to get my fitness levels up.
PC World has put together a slideshow of 10 gadgets to help you get fit at the workplace. I really love the idea of a workplace cycle, and I’ve been really tempted to try the ball seat for myself. A co-worker recently switched to a standing desk and he seems very pleased by that, but I don’t think I have that option since I’m not in the IT department. Still, maybe a convertible desk is in my future? That’d be fun.Technorati Tags: exercise, exercise gadgets, Gadgets, get fit at work, pc world, slideshows, work fitness, work fitness gadgets
