Here are a few moves that will get you moving and get your heart rate up, if you’re committed.

1.Jog in Place… Sounds simple right? Well, it is! Take a mini break every couple of hours and jog in place for at least one minute straight. Want to get your heart rate going? Get your knees up. (My fitness instructor calls them “high knees”). This is a great way to break up spreadsheet monotony!

2.Split Lunge Jumps… These will really get your heart rate going and will work your legs, buns and abs. With your feet hip-width apart, step the left leg back two feet and balance on the ball of your foot. Lower into a lunge and accelerate upwards into a jump. While you’re in the air, switch feet so you land with your left foot planted in front and your right foot is behind ready to lunge.

3.Wall Sit… These are great for building strength and endurance. With your back against the wall, bend your knees outward and slide your back down the wall until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold for 30-60 seconds at a time. Need to make it a bit harder? Try crossing your left leg over your right knee, hold that for 30 seconds and switch for another 30 seconds.

Last but not least, use the stairs! I don’t know about you, but I hate waiting for elevators, being crammed into elevators, and the weird social pressure to have a conversation with strangers because you’re stuck in a small space with them. You’ll be surprised how much taking the stairs can do for your endurance and overall fitness.

Happy Fitness!
