Escape Your Chair
Escape Your Chair by signing up to our challenge
This September we are inviting you to join in the ‘Escape Your Chair’ challenge, with the Irish Heart Foundation.
Throughout the month of September, we are asking people to break-up their sitting time by committing to move for just one minute in every hour of the working day.
Many people who work in desk-based jobs can unknowingly find themselves sitting down for more than eight hours a day.
When is the last time you did a jumping jack?
To help you take part in the ‘Escape Your Chair’ challenge we have developed a range of resources including a new movement idea for each working day of the month. From marching on the spot to heel taps, high knees, and jumping jacks there is no end to the movements you can do in just one minute.
Cardiovascular, muscle strength, balance, and mobility movements are included throughout the plan so you can improve all aspects of your physical fitness. Why not set a reminder and get moving with the Irish Heart Foundation throughout September.
