Who here likes to break up their workday with a killer workout?! Okay, maybe not everyone. But the folks who helm the operations at Polka Dot Design certainly do. When they’re not running the show and making sure your favorite invitation and stationery company is running smoothly, they’re getting in a good sweat and making sure to stay fit and fabulous.
Working out in the middle of your workday can be a HUGE stress buster for many. Spending long days at the desk, under fluorescent lights, barely getting up from your chair can be tolling both on the mind as well as on the body. Many people even laugh off the idea of getting in a workout after work because at that point they’re either too tired or too mentally drained to even consider it.
But there is hope. Working out in-office doesn’t necessarily mean laps around the conference table and typing with weights on your wrists. You can use YouTube and find a few videos that encourage quick, full body workouts without spending hours at the gym. Besides, working out with your coworkers may just bring you even closer than ever before.
The first three workouts are from famed body guru, Christine Salus, while the last two are from the fit girls at Tone It Up!
