In a nutshell: A 12-week worksite intervention involving twelve overweight sedentary office workers significantly improved their health and fitness. The volunteers had treadmill workstations installed in their offices for nine months. Positive outcomes included decreased waist and hip circumference and lowered cholesterol levels.
Another health study involved a larger group of workers, some of whom were normal weight and some overweight. These employees designed their own programmes, using a variety of resources such as weight-loss plans and fitness centres.
