Need a reminder to stop working at your computer and move around every once in a while? I sure do.
Flow Software ($30) does just that. Every 15 minutes to two hours (the frequency is set by you), a small window pops into your screen inviting you to “sit-exercise.” You can engage in as many 5-minute exercise sessions as you wish, while sitting at your desk. All exercises are designed to be performed in a sitting position and cover all big muscle groups including chest, abdominals, biceps/triceps, shoulders, back, legs, and full body stretching. Still not convinced? If you schedule a five minute session every hour, that means you'll get in about 35-40 minutes of activity you normally wouldn't have each workday. Check it out at here.
