The hour-long session will teach workers how to increase their physical activity while at work.
The Town of Longboat Key and Florida Blue will offer a deskercise class on Aug. 4.
The class will teach fun and easy ways to increase your physical activity during work — all without leaving your desk.
The event is for workers who spend much of their job sitting at a desk for eight hours or more per day. This sedentary routine can put people at a risk for muscle loss, carpal tunnel syndrome, heart disease and more.
The event is part of town’s initiative to promote healthier lifestyles, which offers workshops and programs for town employees, businesses and residents throughout the year.
