“Office Stretches” features

Office work day in, day out can be stressful and takes its toll on your body. Prolonged sitting in one position is harmful for your muscles and leads to growing stiffness. Short stretches at the desk are an effective way to prevent or reduce stiffness and pain, and avoid some major health problems.
Don't underestimate those short breaks for daily stretches - simple physical exercises (if you are doing them regularly) will keep you healthy and comfortable at work!
Ratings and Reviews
More bugs than a ghetto kitchen
While the exercises are nice (I feel much better after performing them), this app is too buggy. Sometimes, the woman in the app will decide to just sit there and not do anything. It makes me wonder why developers would launch an app with such a flaw.
Medical selected exercises with cool videos. Recommend!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
