Exercising in the Workplace

Another study has been undertaken into the effects of exercise in the workplace.

Dr JC Coulson and colleagues, of the University of Bristol and Leeds Metropolitan University, carried out the research in three workplaces in the South of England.

Results of the focus group revealed both positive effects of exercise, such as better concentration and problem solving, as well as negative: some participants felt guilty about being away from their desks and perceived that colleagues judged them negatively for their absence.
