The Ultimate Staircase Workout for Serious Fitness Gains

The Ultimate Staircase Workout for Serious Fitness Gains | Occupational Health & Safety Hygienist | Scoop.it

We’re not talking about StairMaster workouts, though they might have their place. We’re talking about a good old-fashioned set of steps, be they the zigzagging flights in your office building or the well-trod bleachers at a nearby stadium. A staircase workout is an incredibly effective way to improve fitness and overall health: One study found that simply walking up 200 steps twice a day, five days a week, for eight weeks, can cause a 17 percent increase in VO2 max, which is a common way of measuring someone’s aerobic fitness

Staff fitness reflected in best work
New Zealand Herald
Perhaps alarmingly, the Randstad report also reveals that over a fifth of New Zealand employees don't feel as if they have enough energy to get up and go to work each day.
Holly DAVISON's insight:

Exercise has become a major part of my life. Since having my first child almost a year ago, it has taken me until now to get back to my pre pregnancy weight. I also believe that since exercising everyday, my motivation, energy, mind and body have all improved. Being fit and healthy has helped getting up for early mornings at work, with more energy at the end of day.
