How about going for a quick walk or run during your breaks? If you work with a few people you might even find one or two join you.

I would love it but I work in a really bad neighborhood


About 6 weeks from now though I will be working mostly from home if all goes well!

Here are great exercises you can do at work

1 Incorporate standing as often as possible into your work routine. It restores many of the vital metabolic activities that slow down or stop when you sit. Consider standing when answering the phone and even holding standing meetings with your colleagues.

2 Every 20 minutes or half an horu or so, perform a couple of micro-exercises - see below for an exercise list from Cameron Neil, our Fitness First trainer.

3 If you've got access to a stairwell, walk up and down stairs for a couple of minutes - this is a seriously good bang-for-the-buck activity, according to Finnish researchers.

4 At lunchtime, go for brisk walks. Studies show that walking fast is more beneficial than ordinary walking pace.

5 Consider a height-adjustable stand-up desk. But don't try to stand all day, says Dr Thorp from the Baker IDI Hear Institute. About-to-be-published research by the institute has shown that alternating between standing up and sitting down works best. Like sitting on a balance ball, standing all day will unnecessarily tire all but the fittest people and lead to bad posture.

Every time you get up from your desk - whether it be for a coffee, lunch or toilet break - make sure you do some subtle twisting and stretching. When you are in the toilet cubicle is an excellent chance to do some. Even for only a minute or so.

I endeavor to get to work 15 minutes early and have a stretch and walk before I enter the building. Likewise after work. Luckily there is a park directly across the road.
