Americans sit almost 10 hours each day (on average)

In recent years a variety of major international research has produced compelling evidence that sitting for more than 4 hours each day leads to:

  • Enzymes responsible for burning harmful blood fats shutting down
  • Reduced calorie burning (Metabolic rate)
  • Disrupted blood sugar levels
  • Increased insulin and blood pressure levels
  • Leg muscles switch off

Irrespective of your level of physical activity, the result leads to increased risks of:

  1. Heart disease
  2. Diabetes
  3. Obesity
  4. Cancer
  5. Back ache
  6. Dementia
  7. Depression
  8. Muscle degeneration

We recommend you calculate the hours you spend sitting on an average “working day”.
Make sure you include your sitting time whilst at work, commuting and at home.
