An Open Letter to Deborah Roberts of ABC News
June 17, 2011
Thanks for your video report shown on ABC World News last night regarding the health risks of sitting all day long:
This may be a cliché already, but I'll say it anyway. Believe it or not, there's an app for that.
In early May, I released Sgt Fitness, an exercise reminder app, exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It's a workout coach for the Twitter generation, if you will, an app that displays reminder notices several times a day for you to do some sort of exercise. The sergeant will drill you with pushups, sit-ups, squats, stretching, balance, laps and stairs.
It's a great app for people who have those office jobs where they are typically sitting all day long. Sgt Fitness turns your iPhone into the dose of self-discipline you need to get up and move a little during the day.
You can find Sgt Fitness and more information about it:

- in my blog entries from May and June, 2011 http://dlrdave.blogspot.com
I encourage you to check it out. It just might be a part of the solution to the problem of "people stuck at their desk" jobs.
