Stay Active at Your Desk:
A Deskercize Class
Sitting at a desk for long periods of time can lead to muscle imbalances and decreased physical activity, which can have negative impacts on overall health. However, it is still possible to incorporate movement and exercise into the workday with Deskercise.
Deskercize classes are designed to help employees stay active and reduce stress while working at their desks. With our experienced instructors, your employees will be equipped with stretches, movements, and exercises that can be performed throughout the day whilst working at their desks.
Deskercize classes are structured physical activity sessions that can be performed at a desk or workstation. These classes are led by certified fitness instructors and are designed to improve physical and mental well-being. Each class lasts 30/45/60 minutes and can be delivered at different times during the workday to accommodate varying schedules.
Participants will need only a comfortable pair of shoes and a chair to participate in the classes. A typical class includes:
- Warm-up stretches
- Upper body exercises using desk items (e.g. water bottles, textbooks)
- Lower body exercises using a chair
- Stretches to improve posture
- Cool-down relaxation techniques
- Improved muscle strength and flexibility
- Increased energy levels
- Enhanced focus and productivity
- Prevention of muscle imbalances and injuries
- Stress relief
- Opportunity for a mental break from work tasks
Physical Health Disclaimer:
Participants should consult a physician before starting any fitness program, especially if they have any pre-existing medical conditions. Physical activity, including virtual and onsite fitness classes, carries an inherent risk of injury.
