Posted by Dejan Stojadinovic on May 29, 2018 3:28:55 AM

People today are spending more time in office-related jobs and more hours at work. Due to this, individuals are sitting for longer periods of time (less daily activity), increasing the chances of poor posture, muscle imbalances, and poor cardiovascular conditioning.
