As we are all aware, being active is vital. Not only does an active lifestyle benefit our physical health, it aids our mental health too.
Okay, so we know that the last thing that is on your mind after a hard day’s work is to go to the gym and work out for 2 hours. What we all would prefer is going home straight after work, sitting on the sofa and watching the tele-box – but also gain those dream pins!
Did you know that you could do exactly that?
Jobar have created a magnificent device to help you get those pins you desire whilst you’re sitting down; whether you’re at work or at home. Not only does it help you achieve toned legs, waist and hips in as little as an hour a day, it increases the circulation through the legs and feet, reducing swelling and prevents numbness whilst you are sat for long periods of time.
Whilst sat comfortably, at your desk or reading your favourite book at home, use a pumping action with your feet on the Sitting Stepper. This will help boost the circulation around your legs and feet. Do find you have swollen feet after a long day? Are your feet always cold or numb no matter how many pairs of socks you wear? These are sure signs of poor circulation that need addressing.
Sit and step – that’s all there is to it!
You can also use the Sitting Stepper to relax and relieve feet – simply rest your feet on the foot plates as you would if you were going to exercise but this time, instead of pumping like your climbing 30 flights of stairs, just relax and let the Sitting Stepper rock your feet back and forth. This is great a great way to cool your muscles down after exercising with the Sitting Stepper or even to relax after a long day on your feet.
The Sitting Stepper can be folded and stored away, which also makes it easy to carry around so you can take it with you to work or even on long journeys.

Why sitting down for too long is bad for you
How long do you think we spend sitting on our bottoms per day? It’s been calculated that, including sleep, we spend an outrageous 19 hours a day being inactive. Just think about it – those who work at the office from 9-5 every day, that’s 8 hours alone. Leave work; driving home, eating tea and then catching up on Corrie with a few brews and then you go to bed.
It all adds up – our bodies are spending an excessive amount of time being inactive, even if we are exercising on a regular basis, unfortunately it is not enough. Those who sit down for the majority of the day have a higher risk of health disadvantages such as, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, being overweight and even obesity. These disadvantages can also lead to a premature death.
How else could you improve your fitness at work?
Along with using the Sitting Stepper, there are other ways you can lower your risk of developing health problems: Instead of sitting on a chair with a back support, sit on a yoga ball or a stool. Even though your office chair provides you with back support and nice cushioned comfort to your bottom, you could end up with an unhealthy posture. A yoga ball or a stool forces you to sit upright rather than relying on a back support. If you choose to use an exercise ball, this could also help work out your abdominals, back muscles and also improve your balance.
How many of you take a real lunch break? When we say ‘real’ we don’t mean, sitting at your desk with your BLT sandwich and finding out what’s trending on Twitter. We mean, actually leaving your desk for 15-20 minutes. A slow five minute walk can reduce any harm that might be caused to your leg arteries, improving blood circulation and reduces swelling. Not only is a short walk good for your body; leaving your desk for 15 minutes can also help boost concentration and improve energy levels throughout the day. Refusing to take a break actually reduces your creativity ability.
Now, there’s an excuse to leave your desk for 15 minutes!
