Foot steps – how many in a day can you do? A better question might be, “how many are you missing?” Conventional wisdom holds that exercise complements sedentary behavior – well no, it is to replace it! After lying down to sleep at night, we want to be up all-day for activities. Why then are so many finding it irresistible to park their legs in chairs at every opportunity? An easy answer is that they don’t know of another comfortable use of body weight. Let’s replace all this sitting with comfortable aerobic activity and relieve stress-related disorders that increase with sedentary lifestyles!
Instead of knocking ourselves out trying to ‘get fit’, let’s learn to comfortably use the ‘fit’ we have to get ever ‘fitter’. Comfortable workouts without shock impact or strained muscles and tendons can be effective whenever and wherever you wish to stand. How does it work? Just use large muscle groups of your legs, hips and back to support and move your heavy body. Body weight acts in endurance activities like running and walking to require large muscle groups to exert moderate forces as muscle fibers lengthen or shorten. The portable StandingSteps™ elliptical platform is the perfect equipment choice for weight-bearing endurance activity. Have all-day work-outs while you are complying with all the other activities you now do while sitting. Stand and deliver more oxygen within large muscle groups and you can be sure of more fitness in response to your weight-bearing movements.
