I have a BSc degree in human biology (with psychology and physiology as my main subjects) and a Master's degree in exercise science. I have always believed that the value of continuous activity throughout the day is an under-appreciated factor in general health, especially today as we are becoming more dependent on technology and computers. After working for more than 10 years in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, I also started working more on a computer and became aware of how important knowledge about the “sitting disease” really is. I started developing potential interventions based on my own practical experiences and theoretical background. I believe there are exciting changes ahead and technology will have a positive impact on our working environments if we have the right attitude and approach to workspace design.
