Lets face it, some of us need to park ourselves in front of the TV on occasion and sometimes more often than we’d like to admit. So, why not turn that time into an opportunity to exercise while watching TV from the comfort of your own couch! There are all sorts of ways to use Excy as a full body workout to exercise while watching TV, but we thought we’d strictly focus on some movements to get moving from the couch!
Why does this matter? Sitting Disease is Real!
There’s no short amount of research showing that sitting sedentary increases the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. On average, American adults are watching five hours and four minutes of television per day according to Nielsen. When you count how many hours you spent sitting at your desk, that’s a lot of sitting. According to a poll of nearly 6,300 people by the Institute for Medicine and Public Health, it’s likely that we spend a stunning 56 hours a week planted like a geranium — staring at our computer screen, working the steering wheel, or collapsed in a heap in front of our high-def TV.
Of course, there are several ways to break up this sitting by trying to stand and we should try to take every opportunity to stretch and walk at work too. But for those moments where you just want to chill, watch TV, maybe Netflix and binge, explore these fun ways to get moving with Excy and exercise while watching TV from your own couch!
