#Getonyourfeet and win a Fitbit Charge 2

Sitting all day can have serious health consequences- it's time to #getonyourfeet. Start moving in the workplace and win a Fitbit Charge 2.

Modern working life can be very taxing on the mind as we sit at our computers all day desperately trying to hit the next deadline. However, it’s the effect that sitting down at the computer all day has on our bodies that we should really be worried about. Studies suggest that sitting down for a long period of time increases the risk of Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, some types of Cancer and even early death as well as a plethora of other health issues.

It’s time to get more active at work

Commercial flooring specialists Intrasystems, are encouraging people to become more active in their workplace with their #GetOnYourFeet campaign. The campaign includes a competition which is being run across their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles. It aims to get people moving in the workplace, whether that be by walking, running or cycling to work, having a walk at lunch time, morning yoga breaks or by pushing themselves to reach their 10,000 steps a day.

To be in with a chance of winning a Fitbit Charge 2, simply enter the competition:

  •  Like/Follow the Intrasystems Facebook or LinkedIn page.
  • Comment a picture of yourself ‘getting active’ in the workplace (or a picture of your pedometer showing 10,000 steps) on one of their campaign posts.
  • Use the hashtag #GetOnYourFeet

It’s as simple as that! The competition ends on November 30th, so you could have a brand new Fitbit Charge 2 before Christmas!

Don’t let work get in the way of leading a healthy lifestyle; take action and get active at work today; your body will really thank you for it! You can find more information on the competition including terms and conditions here.

Good luck!

Are you active in your workplace? Do you reach your 10,000 steps?

    My coworker just got a fitbit and swears by it! She actually offers to go pick up more patients now so she can get in more steps lol. I love that I work in an active hospital job so that I can keep moving more often!! Thanks for sharing the contest info!!

      Yes people really do get obsessed with their Fitbits!

    I work in an office environment that requires long hours of sitting. I always try to get up and move around, stretch, or even take the stairs when I leave on breaks. It never seems like enough! I think having a FitBit would be a great motivator to see how much I’m actually moving (or not moving enough). We have had a few standing desks installed, too.. which actually helps a lot! Thanks for the motivating post (and contest). 🙂

      Standing desks sound amazing! So much better than sitting all day. I agree, I try to get up often throughout the day, but it’s still tough to hit 10,000 steps

    Been so tempted to get something like this. I don’t really count my steps but I do look in my iPhone at the health app sometimes and I wonder how accurate that is.

    • November 25, 2017 / 8:27 pm

      I think the health app is pretty accurate, but I guess it depends if you are constantly carrying your phone all day, unlike a watch which would always be with you (if that makes sense)!

    Oh man, I gotta tell my mom about this one! She LOVES her fitbit, but it’s a really old one! haha this one looks awesome

    There are days I don’t reach 10k steps but I aim to achieve it as much as possible or keeping active – walking up the stairs, not the lift all the way to 5th floor at work, on my rest days seeing how far I can walk in 30-45 mins from work (then I catch the tube home!). That’s hard to do and there are days I feel so lazy. I used to be really good and go for a 30 minute walk during my lunch break at work but I don’t that anywhere as much as I should do now. Oopsy.

      I think I’ll be better once I start my new job in January, it’s in London so I’ll be getting the train and walking, unlike now when I drive to work every day
