Movement is life.

☠ A number of studies confirm the correlation of sedentary lifestyle with obesity, cardiovascular diseases and even some forms of cancer.
Despite the fact that everyone knows about danger of sedentary lifestyle people are spending more and more time engaged in sedentary works. Intellectual workers spend more than 90% of their working hours by sitting in the office.
