Are you wondering why you feel sluggish and uninspired at work? Could the problem be your environment; specifically, your chair?

We will explore the benefits of sit and stand environments. We will learn about the positive effects a sit-stand office can have on your health, creativity and also your waist line. We will outline specific recommendations that you can implement for yourself and on your next design project.


By end of the course the participants will be able to:

– Outline top health effects on the human body caused by prolonged sitting

– List the economic effects associated with extended sitting

– Develop and create healthier offices using recommendations as addressed in the course
