I got the opportunity to test out Break Pal. This marvelous little creation is a widget that pops up and reminds you to exercise at regular intervals when you are working on the computer. You click through the pop up into a list of quick exercises and stretches that can be done in a small space (such as your cubicle), many while you are still sitting in your chair.
Desk Exercises let you get in Shape Right at Your Desk!

Finally A Solution- Office Exercises
I realized that if I had this problem, with the opportunity to work out merely 20 feet away, then it must be 1000 times worse for the average desk worker. That's when we came up with the idea. Build a software program that would not only remind you to take a few minutes to exercise every 30 minutes, but would actually teach you a new full body workout right at your desk.
Together, my husband and I designed Break Pal, the world's only fitness at your desk software. It was an absolute breakthrough. It was exactly what I needed. My fitness level increased dramatically, my productivity shot through the roof, the aches and pains from sitting at my desk too long, all went away.
I received a Premimum membership, and on day 1 started to notice a difference. Luckily for me I work for a fitness company, so no one thought it was strange to see me stand up and do some stretching exercises in the middle of the day (there were 4 people in visual range when I did it the first time, and no one gave me a second glance or asked what I was doing). About 5 hours into that first day, I noticed that I had a lot of energy, and had to make myself sit to work. If my desk had been higher, I'd have stood up the whole day. After a few days of using Break Pal, I realized my back wasn't hurting as much, and my wrists weren't bothering me like they normally do after a long day at the computer.
