Kirklees is the first athlete to take part in a new health and fitness program that teaches people to keep active by getting them to sit down, stretch, and get their hearts pumping with the help of a machine.
The exercise machine was developed by the fitness startup, which has been running at its Sydney headquarters for more than two years.
The program is designed to help people maintain their fitness levels while they’re working out.
“It’s not about running for the sake of running, it’s about making sure you’re getting a good workout, whether it’s walking, running, biking, or just sitting around,” CEO, Alex Kirklees, said.
It’s about giving people a chance to get fit without getting injured, and Kirklees said the machine was designed to get people to sit at a comfortable and safe pace.
“We have this very simple machine that we have in our office that’s basically a treadmill that is turned on for a couple of minutes every morning,” he said.
“It basically does all the work for you.
You get to sit in a chair, you sit on a chair for 10 minutes, you get your heart rate up and you get up and get your legs moving.”
The machine works by automatically sending out a message to your smartphone telling you to sit up and move your hips.
Once you get the hang of it, you’re able to stretch your muscles and get a little cardio in without having to sit on your couch.
The fitness company also had an in-person event where it was able to help hundreds of participants at its headquarters.
This year, Kirklees hopes to help more people through the program, which runs in three phases, starting with basic stretches and getting progressively more challenging and more challenging.
“If you can stay up for a bit longer than what we suggest and stay in the right groove, then you can get the benefits of this machine and then, when you get back to bed, you’ll be ready to work out again,” he added.
Kirklees hopes that people who are interested in starting the program can sign up to help run at their workplace.
“People are going to have to work hard, they’re going to need to be very focused, and if you want to be fit, you have to stay fit,” he explained.
“And I think this is something that we can do with our employees, and we can really make it accessible to everyone.”
