What is Move@Work Challenge?
Participating will help you FEEL BETTER at WORK!
It's a daily Saara video with new movements you (or your employees) can do at work.
The Move at Work Challenge Program is an online membership program including a library. Meaning you always have an option to move even if you don't want to do the video of the day.
How does it work?
Every weekday you'll get an email with a link to a movement video, if you don't click the link you will get a text reminder to move later that day. If you don't want to do the workout of the day you can log into the membership platform and there is a library of exercises. No equipment is needed, except sometimes a desk or chair and movements are meant for all levels. It takes less than 7 minutes a day and it will help you feel better.
As HUMANS we were meant to move. This program is for ALL humans (especially the deskbound ones) and you can even make requests. On Friday's I assign homework (i.e. try a new vegetable) and give out prizes.
This will help you feel energized during the day, may help reduce pain, increase your productivity and improve your mood- you may even laugh.
My name is Saara and my passion is to get humans moving. I believe that little bits of good throughout your day will help you feel better. I actually know this to be true- here's what others have to say:
- "I found Saara's Move@Work program to be informative and helpful in maintaining accountability and helping improve my flexibility in core areas of tightness aggravated by long periods of sitting and interacting with computers."
- "I sit at a desk all day and fall victim to the 2:00 slump. The MOVE@WORK challenge program improved my afternoon energy and made me more mindful of how movement during the day improves my energy and productivity, even after the challenge. No two days are the same, Saara keeps the movement varied, so it's always fun to login and see what the day's "workout" will be. Not to mention, Saara is hilarious so I always get a laugh which is fantastic for overall well being. Thanks Saara!
- "These work outs were easy to follow and the variety made it fun. Would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to add a little extra movement in their day, whether at home or work. I also liked the online comments, they kept you motivated"
- "Saara has endless enthusiasm and creativity. I thoroughly enjoy the MOVE@WORK Challenge program. Even though it was only about 5 minutes a day, I had a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day and even more at the end of 30 days. The follow along made it easy, and her background scenarios changed daily making it even more fun. The program gave me something to think about in movement every day. While I have a fairly physical job as a hairdresser, I was also moving muscles that I don't usually give any extra attention to or in ways that I don't usually. All of this led to taking on more exercise and movement throughout the week, which was what I wanted!"
First of all, this isn't like any other program you've done.
It's just Saarafied moves that you can do at your desk right now.
It it easy to get started and you can do it in less than 5 minutes. You can actually feel better after the first video.
Look, you get one body to live in. One time on this planet- and you WERE NOT MEANT TO SIT ALL DAY. If you don't take care of it who will?
And It's About MORE Than Just Moving and Exercise.
I truly love to change lives and I'll give you other pointers that go beyond the daily videos, like how to use your core while talking to a colleague and how to make better choice when you go out to eat. We also take time to work on strength, balance, improve flexibility, stretch, breath and laugh. I also try my best to change up the scenery (parks, boats, planes, parks etc.) and keep it entertaining.
I also like to give as many get healthy tips, tricks and hacks as possible because you have to take care of your body it's the only place you have to live.
Guess what? You have control over what you do, so go ahead and try it out here.
