Get fit @ work

These days it seems we’re more likely to slog away hour after hour with our bums stuck to our seats.  But, a desk job doesn’t necessarily have to mean an inactive lifestyle.

So, what’s a worker stuck to the desk to do? And what if you could actually work out at work? Here at Raw Gear, we’ve put done the research and here are a few fun ways to keep your fitness levels up whilst at work:

  • Take a Walk: Take a walk down the corridors to catch up with colleagues or instead of sending emails to your boss, get up and go see him/her.
  • Printer Calf Raises: Waiting for all your piles of documents to print on a slow printer, why not do some calf raises whilst you’re waiting.
  • Chair Swivel: If you’re lucky enough to have a turning chair, sitting upright and with the feet hovering over the floor, hold the edge of your desk with your fingers and thumb. Next, swivel the chair from side to side.

Whether you want to learn more about your general physical and mental health, or just to find a new fitness activity, you’ve come to the right place. Stay tuned for more awesome articles, and be sure to visit our website at
