Did you know that small changes really add up when you’re trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle? Being active requires 10,000 steps daily. The benefits of moving more at work offer you increased productivity and concentration, and an enhanced work environment, as exercise helps release the happiness hormone (serotonin). Physical activity also strengthens your immune system and actually reduces absenteeism. In this article, I will suggest a few simple tricks to help you stay active between coffees at the office and to help you get in better shape.
I hope these ideas have inspired you!

I am an enterprising young woman who has had the chance to follow sports teams and work in physical training since 2011. I have been into sports since childhood, and am always looking for new challenges. I love travelling and taking part in outdoor activities. As a competitive person, I also love showing my clients that they are stronger than they think. Having just completed a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and a graduate diploma in athletic therapy, I am up-to-date on all the latest research and technologies related to physical training and musculoskeletal injuries. As a health professional, I strive to promote healthy lifestyle habits through my passion for physical activity and athletic therapy.
