An article in the Daily Telegraph on the 28th July reported on a major Lancet study. The article highlighted the facts about how dangerous the sedentary lifestyle of the typical office worker can be and urges people who spend most of their days sat at a desk to take a look at their daily routine, encouraging them to try to fit more activity in and around the working day.
'Shake Up September' is a national activity logging challenge run by Workplace Challenge and supported by County Sports Partnership Network, aims to encourage employees to bring physical activity into the workplace by trying out as many Olympic or Paralympic sports as possible throughout the month.
