The O.C. Body Shaper started out with the realization that sitting at our desks all day was making us miserable. After long, sometimes stressful days at our desks we were more often than not feeling mentally and physically exhausted.
That realization led us to another; that if we were unhappy and exhausted after a day at our desks others probably were too. When we found out that nearly 86% of the workforce in the U.S. sits at a desk all day it dawned on us that there are a lot of people leaving their jobs unhappy and exhausted every day.
When we began researching a solution we had no idea what it would lead to.
What we found was life changing.
"Sitting disease" is the term given by the medical community to the cumulative effects of prolonged sitting and sedentary lifestyle. Negative effects that include increased risk of breast and colon cancer, cardiovascular disease, circulatory maladies, type 2 diabetes, obesity, depression, early onset dementia and more. The human body was not intended to sit for such long periods of time and as a result years of prolonged sitting is literally killing us.
That's when the O.C. Body Shaper mission was born. It is our passion to improve the country and eventually the world we live in one desk workspace at a time. Raising awareness of and counteracting sitting disease is our goal. We all dream about doing something that will change the world and the O.C. Body Shaper is our opportunity to do just that.
We know that if everyone was exercising regularly while at their desks they would feel better at the end of the day. We know that feeling better at the end of the work day would change the way they live the rest of their lives. We know that millions more people feeling energized and invigorated and happier every day will change the world we live in.
Happier people make a happier world and a happier world is a better world.
We want to be a part of that change and we hope that you do too.
