Welcome! 

DeskWorkOut
Multi- Tasking & Fit !

You only have one body and that body has lots of muscles. Muscles that need to exercise to stay fit and healthy. Your fitness is important and we’ll provide you with healthy exercises and workout routines and that will help you achieve and maintain your fit lifestyle. 

We don’t want this to be a quick fix for a special occasion, but a lifestyle change. And we want to be an asset to you during your journey.

Stress can kill you!

We will provide you with weekly information and some motivational tips to keep you on track. Why? Because as they say, we’ve “been there, done that” and started to pay the price for too much desk work and not enough movement. We want to help you avoid that pain.

Now, don’t get me wrong, this website helps keep us motivated and active too! Blogging about exercises has been informative, not to mention the products we’ve been buying for our home gym so we can recommend them.

So, follow us to receive notifications of our weekly Fitness Posts (click on the Follow button), look for exercise information and exercises on our Fitness and Exercise pages and even shop our Fitness Shopping page for great workout stuff.  We would love for you to visit us daily – it’s our journey too!

Fitness Tips:

  • Check with your Dr. before starting an exercise routine.
  • Eat something within an hour of waking to kick-start your metabolism (a half banana will do)
  • Breathe correctly when exercising:
    • Cardio / Endurance Exercises – take deep breaths and get into a rhythm
    • Running / Endurance Exercises – breathe deeply and in rhythm
    • Weight / Strength Training – breathe out when your muscles are contracted (this is the hardest part of the exercise) and breathe in when you return to the starting position
    • Stretching / Flexibility Exercises – breathe deeply and in rhythm
  • Stretch after you have completed your workout
  • If you must spend a lot of time sitting, be sure to stand up and move around every 30 minutes

 Sitting isn’t your only option for a productive day at the office – Visit our Fitness Shopping page to get some ideas on desks that offer other options. Also be sure to read up on whether a standing desk is right for you before you purchase. If you still decide to purchase a stand up desk, be sure you have a good mat for your feet and space for your work materials – papers, mouse, pens and desktop supplies like paperclips, etc.

  • It is important to balance your routine with exercises that work opposing muscles

After your ab crunches be sure to do lower back exercises. Same for your arms and legs – exercise the front and the back muscles. Strengthening muscles together helps you keep not only your strength, but your stability.

  1. Do you happen to have a section for older people? We are not all able to do the same exercises as when we were younger. There’s bad joints, arthritis, spinal stenosis, poor circulation, COPD – well list is just endless [thank goodness I don’t have them ALL]

    1. Hi GP,
      The important thing is that you speak with your doctor – if you have a printer, click on the right of any exercise to print it out and take with you to your next visit.
      For starters, look at those marked ‘Easy’ – if they use weights, bodyweight exercises are the big thing now.

      Look at are the flexibility page and dynamic stretches . Dynamic in that you don’t stretch and hold (no counting to 30) – and remember with stretching not to bounce.

      I will also work on a Seniors page and let you know when it’s ready, I have ideas for them and now that I know there is an interest, the team will work on them.

      Thank you so much for your support and visiting us. Please let us know your thoughts and progress – even small steps can make a big difference!

      Wishing you the best of health GP!

        1. That will help – look through and see what you’d like to try – printing them will show the Dr. what you mean. Remember to follow the steps, having proper form and remembering to inhale before exertion and exhaling during exertion (lots of people concentrate so hard they don’t realize they are holding their breath). Exercising shouldn’t be painful so definitely speak to your doctor about what you can do and can’t – as you said, there are a lot of contributing factors (thank goodness you don’t have them all :) ).
          Good luck and the best of health!
