Finding time to exercise can be a challenge for anyone with a busy schedule. Why not work out while you're at work?

Here are five ways to make office exercise part of your routine:


1. Walk or bike to work, get off the bus a few blocks early or park farther from the door.

2. Look for opportunities to stand. Try a standing desk, or improvise with a high table or counter.

3. Trade your office chair for a fitness ball.

4. Organize a lunchtime walking group.

5. Conduct walking meetings.
