Group Fitness Leader MOSSA Launches “De-Desk Your Body”

New sessions added to MOSSA On Demand show how the negative effects of sitting on the body can be alleviated

ATLANTA, May 23, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MOSSA, the developer of group fitness programs that have inspired millions to exercise, announces the launch of De-Desk™ Your Body. This series includes six guided sessions, available through MOSSA On Demand, that demonstrate stretching and mobility movements that help reduce the negative effects of sitting for long periods of time and improve one’s movement health.

According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four Americans spends more than eight hours a day sitting. Additional data suggests that increasing sedentary lifestyles lead to aches and pains from metabolic disorders caused by spending too much time sitting earlier in life. Sitting sickness, the term coined by the scientific community, encompasses this dysfunction, which can include carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain, as well as general aches and pains and decreased energy.

MOSSA On Demand’s De-Desk Your Body guides the user through targeted movements that help reduce the soft-tissue stiffness, tightness and pain that many people experience after sitting. There are sitting, standing and floor work sessions, all with the end goal of restoring postural balance, making you feel better immediately.

“We understand that many people have a desk job that keeps them in a seated position for most of the day. However, this is of concern when combined with decreased physical activity due to the pandemic or other factors, as it can lead to a variety of long-term problems,” says Cathy Spencer-Browning, VP of Programming & Training at MOSSA. “De-Desk offers simple Ways for people to get a few minutes of activity or “exercise snacks” throughout the day that can help reduce the pain and stickiness they feel from sitting in a chair for hours.”

The story goes on

A study conducted by the University of Utah School of Medicine showed that just two minutes of physical activity per hour of sitting can reduce the risk of premature death by up to 33 percent. MOSSA On Demand De-Desk Your Body sessions last only 5-7 minutes and can easily fit into a busy schedule.

“The goal of De-Desk is to get people up out of their chairs for just a few minutes every two hours of sitting so their bodies can feel and move better,” adds Spencer-Browning. “At MOSSA, we focus on movement health, which means moving with ease and fewer restrictions. We want everyone to have a healthy, happy body that’s able to move resiliently.”

MOSSA workouts and work-ins are essential to improve your own movement health. Work-ins, which include De-Desk Your Body and MOSSA’s NIMBL percussion sessions, facilitate recovery by reversing some of the mechanical and metabolic stresses on the body that occur during a workout and from sitting for too long.

De-Desk Your Body is now available through MOSSA On Demand. MOSSA On Demand is available for $9.99 per month at New subscribers can sign up for a 14-day free trial to begin their journey to better exercise health.
