Magic Moves

There's no other way to describe it—pure magic.


Imagine a wizard proposing a deal: "Want to slash the chances of cardiovascular-related death by 50% and cancer-related death by 40%?" You're excited and ask, "But what's the catch?" The wizard reassures you: "Just 9 minutes of exercise a day."

For instance, right now, stand up from your desk and do 20-30 squats, jumps, or "burpees" for a few minutes. In the city, take the stairs instead of the elevator, jog instead of walking, or have a call with a client on the go.

Exercise snacks tackle modern problems.

First, ditch the guilt of long desk hours. A quick exercise snack speeds up your heartbeat, gets your blood pumping, and lets you break a tiny sweat.

Second, no need for fancy gear or a gym membership.

Third, anyone can spare a few minutes a day.

Seems like a good deal to me. What do you think?
