Calling all working moms who want to take on the challenge of getting fit and trim while still maintaining your duties at your day job. There are loads of ways to incorporate simple methods for weight loss and exercise into your daily workday routine that can go a long way to accomplishing your personal goals in categories such as nutrition, losing weight, balance, strength-training and toning, aerobic activity, or endurance. In an effort to find some helpful gear to make your endeavors easier to accomplish, here is a list of gear to lose weight and get fit while working weather it is a corporate job or a stay at home job:
Gaim Classic Balance Ball Chair
Utilizing a balance ball to sit on at work at your desk instead of a regular office chair can encourage more toning and strengthening and improved posture. It’s a practical way to help boost weakened abdominal muscles.
DeskCycle Under Desk Cycle
It can be really challenging to find the time to get up and stretch, or do a few exercises at the office when the phones are ringing off the hook, or your boss keeps checking in on your work. One way to accomplish staying at your desk to get things done and still manage to put in a good amount of exercise each day is to purchase an under-the-desk exercise bike. Simple to use and easy to store under just about any size desk, this mini stationary bike can help you work those leg muscles and burn off calories while you are on the job. Set goals for endurance and burning calories, then watch yourself soar past them while still getting things done on the job!
Sunny Health & Fitness Twist Stepper
For a fun, full body workout that fits under a desk, in a closet, or in a gym bag, try a mini twist stepper. These are durable and sturdy with wide, non-slip slots for your feet. The adjustable resistance bands are removable. You can cater to any muscle group using the resistance bands and the twisting motion of the stepper.
Seated Under-Desk Elliptical
Trying to lose weight by burning calories and getting in shape, but need to find a very quiet activity that won’t be distracting or noisy in the workplace? Another helpful product which is very similar to the under-the-desk cycle is the under-the-desk elliptical. This particular model is whisper quiet to ensure a comfortable workout that won’t distract anyone else in the office or disrupt your phone conversations with any clients.

Beyond your wildest expectations there lies a fabulous new trend that helps reel in the fruits of your own labor and refocuses your fitness and nutrition goals in an incredibly organized way. Imagine yourself achieving your weekly and monthly goals faster than ever before and all because of this one important task that you have to do daily in order to achieve the desired results. What is this amazing trend you ask?
In the coming months you may find you feel more comfortable making other little changes in your daily routine that can really benefit your body’s mission to keep health and wellness a top priority. You could consider walking or biking to work each day. If there are stairs in your workplace, choose the stairs instead of the elevator at least once per day. Drink more water by actively stopping to take a drink each time you have to walk by a water fountain whether you are thirsty or not. (You can never have too much water, right?) Create nutritious snacks to keep at work, and make sure to start your day with a well-balanced, nutritious breakfast. Pack a delicious and heart-healthy lunch to bring with you to the job. Keep in mind you might need some renewed energy near the end of the day, so don’t forget to bring a protein bar (I LOVE these and they come in so many yummy flavors) or other protein-rich snack to eat when your energy is running low – especially if you plan to do workouts at the office that day. Get creative, eat nutritious meals, keep a nutrition and fitness journal going daily, pick up a few new gadgets to help with easy fitness practices at the office, and drink lots of water. You’ll find yourself slimming down back into your favorite pre-pregnancy jeans in no time! Here is another post with workout equipment suggestions!
