More companies holding walking meetings for workplace exercise

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Many people spend more than eight hours a day sitting and recent studies show just how unhealthy that can be.

Research finds sitting for long periods can lead to obesity, cancer and cardiovascular disease.  Now many companies are holding meetings that get workers out from behind their desks and onto their feet.  The Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health in Washington even has an indoor track for employees.

Antigone Peyton, an attorney, said, "If we can get outside and get the blood moving, we feel like we can come back to the office refreshed and ready to work again."

If you are interested in starting walking meetings with your co-workers, experts say it's best  for small groups.  Also, make sure it's scheduled in advance so everyone knows to wear comfortable shoes.
