Widespread Workout Innovations that push for constant exercise fight against sedentary lifestyles Implications - Longer work hours paired with heightened participation in sedentary activities is making exercise for the average consumer more difficult than ever, which is where solutions that make use of breaks, time on the couch and while commuting are being praised as a revolutionary way to satisfy desire for fitness.
