Get Moving Tips

Danielle Rheault interviewed for articleDanielle Rheault, co-owner at Fortitude Health + Fitness, was recently interviewed by the Hippo Press for their article Love your work space: 7 steps to boost  your 9 to 5 life. Danielle had fun sharing some of her best tips for how to stay refreshed and energized in your work space. Below are her top tips for how to Get Moving!

“Exercise is like an elixir. I think a lot of people don’t realize the importance of it mentally,” said Danielle Rheault, co-owner at Fortitude Health and Training, via phone.

She can see the effect of exercise in her clients, especially those who come in at noon Monday through Friday. They arrive with scowls and leave with relaxed shoulders and smiles.

“So many people have said to me, ‘I’m much more effective at work after a workout. I feel refreshed, rebooted,’” Rheault said. “I see it all the time, and I feel it myself.”

Don’t have time for a 45-minute workout? There are little things you can do throughout your workday without ever leaving the office. Like using the bathroom on the floor above or below, if you work in a large building. Or, instead of emailing coworkers, get up and go to talk to them. If you’re on a conference call, stand up, walk around or perform simple exercises as you talk.

“Most people are on a Bluetooth device — you can sit with your hands on the back of a chair and do lunges while talking on the phone, or squat while holding on to the chair,” Rheault said.
There are exercises you can do sitting down, too. Rheault suggested one that involves holding a water bottle in one hand while raising that arm in front of you — voila, a shoulder workout! You can tap your feet to work your calves, raise your knees to work your quads or sit tall and think about contracting your abdominals for a quick core workout.

If you’re able to get out of your chair for a minute, throw in a 30- or 60-second exercise — lunges, push-ups or planks in the hallway, or wall-sits near your desk.

Feeling self-conscious?

“That’s fine! Do them in the hallway or the stairwell. Do something in the bathroom. Do something for any period of time. It’s not like, ‘Oh my God, I have to fit a 45-minute workout into my day.’ Little bursts add up,” Rheault said. “Some people don’t like doing these kinds of things at work. But you can find a buddy. … Challenge somebody to a wall sit in the hallway. … You can make it fun.”
