We are made to move.

We are firm believers that movement matters, and the research is backing us up. People that incorporate more movement into their daily life report higher energy levels, increased productivity, and a better mood. Most importantly, the science is beginning to prove that avoiding a sedentary lifestyle can help reduce the risk of many common diseases.

Stand when you can


Adding standing to your work day has proven to help back, neck, and joint pain as well as improve productivity and energy levels. There are many options depending on your goals, time and budget to give sitting a break. We created our resources to help you find the best standing desk for your needs.

Sit when you need to


Finding the right chair for your home or work office can dramatically reduce the side effects of your extended sitting time, help you maintain better posture and generally increase comfort. Our guides help break through the noise and help you find the right fit.

Move any chance you get


When most people think of not sitting all day, they often assume they must be standing. There are other options such as walking or biking at a slow speed at your desk. Our tools will help you decide if this is right for you.

Stay aligned all day


When it comes to causes of pain, staying out of line throughout the day is a top cause. Our resources help highlight many of the ways you can gain proper alignment and prevent common pain causes.
