US Companies Adopt Exercise During Work
“Eat your greens, do your exercise!”
Sounds like mum, doesn't it? Well it's actually someone who you’d least suspect.
There are some companies who are undertaking a policy for their employees to exercise and eat healthy.
Outdoor clothing company L.L. Bean, Inc. shuts down its manufacturing line three times a day for mandatory five-minute stretches, designed to prevent the most common injuries the workers suffer.
Apparently, the major companies have been under pressure from employees who attempt to sue them for injuries during the work time.
Susan Tufts, of L.L. Bean, Inc. said: "It's a safety measure, just as we would ask someone to wear safety glasses if there's a danger of hurting their eyes,"
What would your reaction be when your boss tells you: "Turn off your monitor, drop to the floor and give me 20!"
Just don't forget to bring your gym bag with you to work from now on!
