Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have seen every form of small group emerge: school "cohorts", family "bubbles", and more. The latest trend we are noticing is an increase in coworker workouts and small office fitness spaces. You work together, why not work out together?
You don't need a big budget and a massive corporate wellness center to get started. All you have to do is invest in a few simple pieces of equipment to make your office workouts successful.
1. Start with the basics: Cardio and Strength
When planning your office fitness space, it's important to start with the basics: cardiovascular health and strength training. While both cardio and strength training can make you stronger and healthier, neither type of exercise is complete on its own.
Plans for breaktime walks or runs can be easily derailed by rain or snow, that's why it's important to choose the right equipment—so you can work out indoors regardless of the weather. A good treadmill is a great place to start building an indoor office workout space. For small office fitness spaces, we recommend: Spirit XT685 Treadmill.
The XT685 is Spirit's flagship X Series model and features large 3" diameter rollers with a 22" wide belt. This model utilizes a non-folding frame design and waxed deck system which is designed for maximum durability to stand up to the rigors of frequent running. With a long list of premium features and weighing in at 269 lbs, the XT685 is comparable to treadmills at much higher price points.
The American Heart Association recommends strength training at least twice per week as part of an overall exercise routine. The Inspire FT1 Functional Trainer is a great option for small offices.
The FT1 allows exercisers to have complete freedom of movement in any direction or plane while performing weight resistance exercises. These unrestricted exercises are designed to move the way your body naturally moves. Many of the freestanding exercises incorporate core, secondary, and stabilizing muscles, giving you a more efficient workout.
