OfficeGYM installed on a chair
It is well known that the sedentary life associated with long hours spent sitting, paired possibly with a wrong and uncomfortable posture, can cause many conditions like back pain, muscle soreness, blood circulation and cardiovascular problem, stress and a low job productivity.
With OfficeGYM one can perform a wide range of exercises to maintain fit main muscle groups as well as to maintain the blood flowing through the body in order to keep more alert and prevent pains and soreness in back and shoulders. The main advantage of the device is its versatility. If installed on the chair where one spends most time sitting during the day, it can be used in any spot of free time, without the need of leaving the chair or assemble and disassemble something.
OfficeGYM is used by grabbing the soft gripped handles behind the shoulders and pulling the interchangeable elastic cords in different directions, depending on the performed exercise. The handle bars can be set in two positions, up or down, to widen the possible exercise range. A complete guide of basic exercises and their specific benefits is available in the box with the unit and the company also promises to have soon available in their website a platform where to add new exercises and where users can suggest their own.
OfficeGYM is available for sale online at the official website www.officegym.com.
