Most of us spend most of our lives working and often times see our coworkers more than we do our own loved ones.
The promotion of health and wellness in the workplace is vital because work is such a major part of life for most, especially if the job entails sitting in front of a desk all day.
Ever since I started working from home, my activity level is not what it used to be when I worked in a hospital and was on my feet all day. My coworkers now also work remotely from home so I thought it would be great to implement a way to promote exercise and get us up and moving.
We are not able to meet during our lunch break to take a walk together because we all live miles away from each other so doing monthly workout challenges has been a hit!
The workout challenges usually involve a few moves each day so we usually follow-up with one another via instant messages on a daily basis to root each other on and feel proud about what we have been able to accomplish.
Working out with my coworkers, or at least talking about our workouts, has been a lot of fun and we have developed a greater bond with each other which makes working much more pleasurable.
I decided to share the workout challenges we have done to motivate each of you to find fun ways to incorporate worksite wellness to not only build a support system from the people you see most of the time, but also to increase job satisfaction as a whole.
We did a 28-day Squat Challenge and I got great results from it!

These workouts got tougher as the days progressed, but they incorporated the whole body. I also saw more definition on my legs.
Finished the Jiggle Free July Challenge (workout calendar previously posted) and I do see some added definition💪🏼 This month I started a new challenge. I'm going to drink 1 Skin Detox Tea daily for 30 days (as recommended) to see if it does make a difference with my skin.

My arms are the weakest part of my body and that is true for most women. Since all my coworkers that took part in the workout challenges were women, we all appreciated something that helped us build strength and trim a common trouble spot.
The following is a workout schedule that can be suitable for those who do work at an office alongside their coworkers:

Deniza from Ask Deniza posts amazing workouts for the week and how to perform them correctly. One of my favorites is the Bulgarian split squat because it helps to change up the routine from regular squats and works various muscles. Be sure to check out her blog for more workouts!
