Top public health researchers from around the globe including the likes of The Mayo Clinic and the Sydney School of Public Health continue to report on one of the biggest health risks of contemporary work life, prolonged sitting. Metabolic disease and diabetes are just some of the potential repercussions of excessive sitting. Study after study shows that the solution is to get up and move throughout the day to avoid multiple hour stints of sitting. “Gadget” solutions such as standing and treadmill desks while potentially beneficial may not be financially or operationally feasible for most organizations and generally have a low rate of adoption. CoreFitnessByJana has devised a simple, low cost solution that can be seamlessly integrated into corporations of any type or size without disrupting workflow. Got A Minute For Your Health is a series of 1-2 minute exercise videos, and soon to be released mobile app, designed for exercise in the office, hotel room or plane to improve circulation, tone muscles, reduce stress and re-energize.
Health and wellness programs to date have done a good job with discrete programs such as smoking cessation and with disseminating information about health risks and the value of exercise in reducing risks. They’ve not, however, been as successful at engaging employees and delivering a call to action for fitness. Many people, especially those who have tended towards being sedentary, while intellectually grasping the need for exercise, don’t have the knowledge or dedication to it to fully embrace and integrate it into their lifestyle. CoreFitness Got A Minute For Your Health 1 minute exercise videos incorporated into a corporate wellness website or available through upcoming mobile app can proactively remind employees to move and lead them through specific exercises.
"The Got A Minute series was developed as a proactive solution, with emphasis on 'active', to combat effects of sitting and infuse exercise into the workday," says CoreFitnessByJana founder, Jana Sanford. Got A Minute For Your Health videos can be licensed for quick and easy integration into broader wellness programs. The key to success for workplace related efforts to foster healthy lifestyles is providing a catalyst for employees to take action. That is exactly what Got A Minute For Your Health offers.
