Many modern indoor workspaces are shifting toward pleasant, comfortable and artistic aesthetics. Startups often promote physical activity with standing desks and ping pong tables. Natural light even gets included on the list of perks on some job postings nowadays.

Although these contemporary offices may not resemble the infamous cubicles of the late 20th century, they still cannot fully overcome the primary downside to office work, namely, a sedentary routine. All the tweaks and adjustments do help, of course. People are growing more and more aware of the need to take breaks from their work for short interruptions with physical activity.

The length and substance of those breaks may ascend to another level in the new decade, if the new app WebFitness proves to be successful. The app targets office workers with its online personal training, according to a recent press release, which notes:

According to Dr. Edward R. Laskowski, “an analysis of 13 studies of sitting time and activity levels found that those who sat for more than eight hours a day with no physical activity had a risk of dying similar to the risks of dying posed by obesity and smoking.”

It is easier to get fit with WebFitness’ online interactive live fitness classes. People, who may not be able to get to a gym, now have an alternative way to get fit from their home or hotel room. WebFitness’ interactive group sessions are led by a LIVE certified trainer who monitors each class member to make sure that he or she has proper form during each exercise.

WebFitness trainers are particularly skilled in motivating class members to go the extra mile!

WebFitness offers members:

  • Variety of different types of fitness classes 
  • Ability to track progress towards fitness and dietary goals 
  • Customized dietary advice for each member 
  • Classes at times that are accessible to people who are in different time zones …

WebFitness also offers diet and nutrition coaching and monitoring. Members can use the WebFitness app to snap a picture of their meals and snacks with a simple click. WebFitness’ dietitian then reviews meal choices and gives specific dietary advice. Members are seeing positive results because WebFitness targets both exercise and diet.

Perhaps, with the help of apps like these, the stigma of monotony surrounding office jobs will be replaced by one of heart-pumping excitement.
