​Research has shown that sitting for more than 6 hours increases your risk of premature death by 37%; not to mention that inactivity also increases your risk of obesity, cancer, and diabetes. Engaging in physical activity is one of the most effective ways to boost your overall health and lose weight, but let’s be honest, not everyone has time for structured workouts or gym activities.

That’s ok, because you can still reduce your risk of death and disease as long as you participate in enough physical activity throughout the day. And this is where the Fitbit Zip can help. The FitBit Zip is a small pedometer that tracks how many steps you take, total distance traveled, and calories burned throughout the day. With the FitBit Zip, you will know precisely whether you have moved enough, or if you need to take a few more laps around the office. It’s great for increasing your overall fitness and losing weight, since you will know exactly how many calories you’ve burned each day. Check out this short video review to learn more about the FitBit Zip, and see if it could be just the motivation you need to get moving.
