By now, most people know that sitting all day is bad for you. CNN has cited numerous studies finding that sitting for 8 to 12 hours a day increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 90 percent — and is even linked to developing a chronic disease or having a shorter lifespan.
Unfortunately, most people have no choice but to work all day in a cubicle — sitting. Marc Santa Maria, the national group fitness director for Crunch Gyms, noticed that when people aren't at work, they're heading to bootcamp-style workout classes that, while beneficial, are also hard on the body.
To give people a way to rehabilitate their bodies, he came up with a class to relieve muscle tension, massaging and restoring the body. "[MOTUS] is a workout, but also feels good for your body,” Santa Maria tells us.
He shared three moves that office slaves can do at work, plus one bonus move to do at home.
