Low-Intensity Fitness Training (LIFT), from Meglio.
Personal Trainer Emma Taylor has crafted 10 easy-to-follow exercises to enable you to do a complete full-body workout at your desk.
Here at Meglio, we’re passionate about helping you get fit and stay fit for life. So, with the LIFT programme, we’ve developed a suite of bite-sized exercises to fit into daily life. We all need to make lasting changes, for long-term health.
Office-based workers are at a greater risk of ill health than those with active jobs. Studies have linked excessive sitting with obesity, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, and early death. So, get LIFT-ing!
Emma says: “We want to make it as easy as possible to fit segments of exercise into your daily life. These 10 quick office workouts can be used as a whole, or you can pick and choose based on the time you have available. The important thing is just to do something.
“A healthy lifestyle isn’t a short-term aim – it’s a lifelong journey. It takes three weeks to create a habit, and three months to create a lifestyle. Stick with it and you’ll reap the rewards.”

LIFT Body Coach Emma explains why resistance bands are perfect for exercising at work: “Resistance bands are perfect for use in the office – they’re low in cost, super efficient, lightweight, small enough to fit into a briefcase or handbag, and you can do a multitude of exercises with them that will get results.
“What’s more, there are 5 different levels of resistance band tension … so not only is there one for every ability, but you can work up to tougher tension bands as you get fitter, if you want more of a challenge. It really is the best all-round piece of kit for taking wherever you go.”
