Quick Workout

Lunch Time Workouts You’ll Love!

For many of us hard at work, lunch hour couldn’t come any sooner. However, instead of protesting that there’s never enough hours within the day to hit the gym or go for a jog after work, why not use your lunch break to complete some easy exercises. Sitting all day can be cause injury to your posture, leaving many of us aching or clicking our backs and necks every hour or two.

So we’ve come up with a solution, prepare a meal the night before so it’s ready to go after you’ve finished exercising. Luckily for us the sun is here so a quiet park or empty office room is the best place to set up your exercising spot, you never know it might even result in becoming the new cool area for all staff members to join in with the exercise too.
