Importance of staying Active
All around the world more than a billion adults are overweight or obese
(Robroek et al., 2009). Being overweight or obese, as well as inactivity, are all risk factors for developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Exercise and physical activity have incredible health benefits seen to reduce the risks of these diseases.
Why the workplace?
The workplace is a great setting to reach large amounts of individuals who are likely to be sedentary due to their job. This location is a great place to begin promotion of these programs all within a social environment.
