Get out of your chair. No, really.
According to the CDC, prolonged sitting is the #1 contributor to chronic diseases, with negative effects beginning after just one hour of sedentary behavior.
Just one hour of sitting is as unhealthy as smoking 2 cigarettes.
All the latest research points to a single direction… Sitting is the New Smoking. Don’t take our word for it. Read more about the effects of sedentary behavior on the body.
You can reduce your risk of many chronic diseases by getting active.
Just a minute or two of activity each hour is enough to reduce the threat of many diseases, including:
Type 2 Diabetes
UtiliFIT gets you up and active throughout your day.
Using small physical challenges spaced throughout the day, UtiliFIT disrupts the negative effects of prolonged sitting with micro-bursts of activity that activate the major muscle groups, raise the heart rate, and provide needed flexion to the joints.
UtiliFIT’s challenges vary in activity types, with intensity intelligently matched to your player level, and most won’t take longer than a minute or two. That might not seem like a lot, but those minutes add up.
In addition to having fun, users report increases in concentration, productivity, energy and yes, even weight loss due to the sustained metabolic increase associated with being active over being sedentary.
