Workers dislike exercising during day

24th September 2010

A survey conducted by the British Heart Foundation has shown that many workers do not like exercising during the day because they do not want to get hot and sweaty in front of colleagues.

The charity surveyed more than 2,000 adults and found that 55% spent their working day sitting or standing still. From its findings, the BHF estimates 81% of UK workers fail to get the exercise they need throughout the week of 30 minutes on at least five days.
