Physical activity in the workplace

Resources to help you create a more physically active workplace.

The Heart Foundation and active workplaces

The Heart Foundation sees the workplace as an important location for workers to be more physically active and reduce sitting. Workers can spend a large percentage of time at work so to exercise to, at or from the workplace is an excellent way to achieve enough activity for heart health benefits.
