I HATE excercising. I mean hate it! I hate knowing I have to do it after work or have to wake up and do it. So, staying on a consistent fitness plan for me is nearly impossible.
I started toying with the idea of doing some exercising at work. Has anyone tried this?
Or does anyone else have an “exercise” routine for the office? I would love to doing a few minutes here & there throughout the day and be done with it!

OK I have a ball chair- and it’s totally NOT “excercise” sure, it’s a bonus helps your core strenghth and feels nice on the back. But sitting on your butt (on a ball or not) isn’t any sort of excercise.
Moving on, I have a full on mini gym at work which I frequent every day. You may or may not. But I do know a lot of folks around the plaza (business plaza) who go for dily lunch walks. You can do as hard or as easy as you like. I see runners who put on their full running gear and run around for 20-60 mintues. They wipe themselves off with damp papertowels and head back to work. It’s not as “nasty” as it sounds. Wipe your pits, put on fresh DO and you’re golden. If the running is too hard core there are plenty of walkers at lunch 10 mintues to hald hour whatever you can fit it. It counts.

I occasionally do lunges around my office, park as far away from the door I can so I walk a few extra steps every day, always take the stairs instead of the elevator.
ETA: If I had a lunch break I would go for a walk as well.

I walk to work, a mile each way. It’s not a lot, but it’s something. I don’t know how far you live from your job, but maybe you could start biking or walking to work.

I do my circuit training during the day– I have a set of exercises (squats, lunges, push ups, sit ups, etc.) that I do every time I stand up. I go for 10 reps, and I cycle through each exercise. I have a relatively private office, so I don’t care about getting on the floor and things, but there are lots of exercises you can do while being a bit more discrete too.
But this way– I’ll get 100 reps or more in per day, and it honestly doesn’t take any real time, since I do them in 1-2 minute blocks whenever I’m getting up anyway.
I also try to stand up and walk from one end of the office the other every hour at a minimum. This keeps me from getting stiff, and just moving in general. Hope that helps!
