Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
DeskFitness.com is announcing the launch of a free exercise website. The fitness based site encourages men and women to stay in shape through a series of short, detailed work-out videos and extensive screen shots. Each easy-to-follow video has been created to be performed either next to a desk or in a small hotel room. As a result techies, members of the media, and the administrative workforce now have an opportunity to stay in shape and save money without ever leaving the office.
DeskFitness.com was created to assist desk jockeys who want to either maintain (or regain) his or her shape. The website provides a simple, yet innovative, technology based approach to exercise meant to compliment the lifestyle of today’s web 2.0 culture. The free website allows individuals to work on all the areas of the body including biceps, triceps, back, legs and even abs.
“Being glued to your desk shouldn’t be an excuse for not exercising.” says James Rose, the Vice President of Marketing for DeskFitness.com “Our website was created for real people under actual working circumstances. Gyms, personal trainers and the alike cost money and require time-something most office professionals are already short on. DeskFitness.com provides free exercises to the masses while maintaining an aspect of practicality and convenience.”
CNN recently did a feature on the negative physical elements that accompany having a desk job. The researchers found too much sitting is linked to “back pain, repetitive stress injuries, obesity, and an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.” These work-related medical reports, such as what has been reported on CNN’s website, are exactly the reason why DeskFitness.com was developed. The creators wanted to consider each working person’s long-term preventative health, space, and time issues when creating exercises for the website.
As far back as the late 1950s, a study found that people with sedentary jobs (bus drivers) were twice as likely as those with active jobs (mailmen) to develop cardiovascular disease. DeskFitness.com has acknowledged the growing trend of longer work hours and more travel among today’s working class. With the launch of DeskFitness.com millions of people now have a chance to work on their physical health, positive self-perception, and even their mental health.
ABOUT: DeskFitness.com officially launched in October of 2011. The free website allows users to perform a variety of exercises from the convenience of his or her desk or the comfort of a cozy hotel room. As an added courtesy, the website offers individuals a simple way to track their progress.
