Shake Off That Midday Slump (Literally!)

It’s 3:00 PM, and you’re stuck at your desk. There’s a conference call in an hour and a deadline right after, and you realize—again—that the gym isn’t happening. What’s an employee to do?

If your office has a my7 FitStop from Power Plate, you literally shake off that midday slump in as little as 3 minutes.

A natural evolution of workplace wellness, the my7 FitStop provides an easy (and space-efficient) means for workers to work out without ever leaving the office. The my7 is designed specifically to revitalize drooping desk jockeys and reverse the negative effects of sedentary office life. It features Power Plate’s signature pulsating platform that stimulates whole-body muscle response through vibration training.

Encouraging your employer to place emphasize activity may be more important than you think. According to the World Health Organization, physical inactivity is the fourth-leading risk factor for death for people all around the world—since studies show that a sedentary lifestyle (ahem, office work) can lead to death from cardiovascular disease and cancer as well as cause chronic conditions like Type 2 diabetes.

To fight back, FitStop comes pre-set with four programs to beat the midday blahs—Rejuvenation, Focused Relaxation, Cardio Boost, and QuickStop. Each program consists of simple stretches and movements aimed at alleviating common problems caused by sitting at a desk all day. Best of all, FitStop includes easy-to-follow instructions, intuitive touchscreen controls, and it can be used in normal work clothes.

Would FitStop be a welcome addition to your workplace? So far, employers who install the FitStop are happy with the results. “Today, you’re more likely to see a Roth team member grabbing a midday pick-me-up on Power Plate than making a two o-clock trip to the coffee pot or vending machine,” said Ted Roth, president of Roth Capital, an investment banking firm in Newport Beach, CA.
