Our modern lifestyles - long sitting hours, slouching over desk/laptop/phone, long driving hours etc - continually disrupt the natural biomechanic balance of our bodies!
We are simply carrying the daily accumulating effects of this un-natural lifestyle into everything we do, including our workouts!
Do not let it accumulate! Simple!
Do not let the stress of these unnatural positions accumulate for more than a few hours continually.
We should aim to get up from our desks every few hrs during the day and give our bodies the gift of simple but essential 2-5 minutes natural movement workouts!
Especially helps with neck and back pain if your lifestyle includes long hours of sitting
Studies show that a 5-minutes of HIIT workout session is much more effective than a 45-minute gym session. Test your fitness with this 5-minutes HIIT workout session!
Our modern lifestyles are increasingly making our joints stiff and injury prone. Do this workout everyday to keep your joints happy.
Sitting for long hours with slouched posture continuously weakens our core muscles leading to back pain, cervical, and overall body instability. Plank, a very simple exercise, if done a few times during the day, can help with many of these issues!
Running is great! But do you know how easy it is to get injured? Do this workout daily to run injury free!
Squatting, one of the most natural positions for human body, when done every few hours, helps restore mobility and balnce lost due to modern lifestyle.
Yes, I am happy with my weight and overall health, but I am also aware of the dangers of my long hours of sitting and working behind a laptop.
And the key for me to mitigate the effects of this stressful and sedentary lifestyle is to get up every hours, even at work, launch up O'Coach and do a quick no-equipment 2-5 mins fun workout routine!
I don't like going to gym. I just don't want to go to gym. I don't want 6-pack abs really.
But I do want to remain fit enough to keep sitting on my chair without neck/back pain. And I think that the only manageable solution for me for the same is to get up every few hrs and break the sitting patterns with simple exercises! And O'Coach is designed to help me do exactly the same!
My years of struggle to keep away postural problems and remain pain-free, all the while maintaining my sedentary lifestyle - occupational hazard really - ended in the acceptance that the only way to counter the ill-effects of our
long sitting/slouching hours is to NOT sit/slouch for long hours, simple!
O'Coach is designed to keep me motivated for the same by appreciating for those small movement breaks that I take during the day. I look forward every morning to win that elusive Golden Trophy!
I am a Shivananda Yoga Certified Practitioner and Teacher. All my practice over past one decade has taught me one thing - it is not possible to keep your neuro-muscular structure balanced by doing anything for 1 hr, when we spend
the majority part of the day continually re-enforcing the same imbalances due to our modern sedentary lifestyles!
The acknowledgement of the same principle and the resultant approach to motivate everybody to do those small natural movement exercises multiple times a day is what I loved about O'Coach!
O'Coach, is a fitness app with a vision to cater to the problems caused by our modern sedentary lifestyles, keeping in due consideration the limitations imposed by the same modern lifestyles!
Simple and effective! Yeah?
