***Desk Job? Sit too Long and Often? Did you know sitting can be deadly in the long run?
********* StandApp Helps Combat "Sitting Disease" ********
Millions of Americans lead sedentary lifestyles (sitting for 9+ hours a day) due to desk jobs, or inactivity. Recent studies performed by the CDC(Center for Disease Control and Prevention) suggest that sedentary lifestyles lead to a host of health risks.
These risks include; obesity, cardiovascular disease, poor cholesterol, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and overall higher mortality rate. Due to the high health risks of compounded extended sitting, it's time for people to take a pro-active approach to maintaining a healthy and active life.
StandApp promotes healthy living by providing an alarm reminder to stand up and take a break from your desk.
StandApp includes 15 easy exercises anyone can perform at their desk during their standing breaks.
You can set the reminder interval to a custom time, we recommend a break at least every hour.
Experts say avoiding the sedentary life is mostly about remembering to be active. Even people who work a desk job for 60 hours each week can still work movement into their days — getting up for a cup of water instead of keeping one at your desk, walking down the hall to talk to a colleague rather than sending an email. StandApp keeps you accountable to this task.
What's New in Version 1.1
Custom Set Alarms
New Exercise Videos-30 Total
Really like this app! I set it to remind me every hour because I get so engrossed in my work I forget to get up & walk around. They have different things to do (like toe touch, leg swing, etc)
Good app, but buggy
I like the concept and the exercise videos, but the app gets stuck on Ankle Stretch every few days (even when that exercise is removed from the list) and only way I have found to reset is to delete and reinstall app.
Wish the exercise videos cycled per my settings
Great app for long hours at work; just wish videos cycled through better; it's stuck at ankle stretches ...
