It's no secret that today's sedentary workforce is part of the problem when it comes to the growing obesity epidemic in the U.S. What is less obvious is the role that our daily expenditure of energy and intake of energy plays in the weight Americans stack on every year. This session will detail the critical relationship between physical activity and energy worked off while on the job, and how an intentional increase in the most basic workplace movements (e.g., walking at the office, lifting boxes, sitting, standing) could provide an important supplement to the formal exercise (e.g., running, swimming, circuit training) most Americans are completing in their free time. The session also will take a closer look at the study's numbers that prove the close correlation between workplace activity and weight gain.
