FIT IN SOME EXERCISE AT THE OFFICE IT’S
a lard day at the office for one in five workers who admit they take no
exercise at all, spending the nine-to-five hunched at their PCs and
nights sprawling in front of the TV. So Canon has come up with the Alternative Office Workout to get the workforce into shape. The photocopier giant suggests: Climb the stairs instead of taking the lift – 10 minutes a day burns 102 calories, that’s more than 500 during a week. Walk
over to colleagues, instead of emailing them and move the photocopier
or printer off your desk and walk over to pick up documents: 30 minutes
over a day uses 150 calories. Clean your desk: 10 minutes each evening burns 40 calories Make drinks for your workmates: a 10-minute tea-round uses 80 calories. Washing up later gets rid of another 26.
