EP171: The Dangers of Sitting with Juliet Starrett


I know by now we’ve all heard that sitting is bad, but I was shocked to learn that for every hour we sit, we lose two hours of life. 

Yes, it’s THAT bad. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, sitting too much is the 4th biggest preventable killer - contributing to 3.2 MILLION DEATHS annually. 

So if you’re still sitting for the majority of your day (like many Americans) drop what you’re doing and listen to today’s podcast with the amazing founder of (which has revolutionized how athletes think about human movement and athletic performance) and Standup Kids (a NFP that has converted 95,000 kids from sitting to standing), Juliet Starrett. 

We talk a little bit about the dangers of sitting and a lot more about what you can do about it (even if you have a desk job) in 3 simple steps. 

I promise you, you need to hear this! Sitting IS the new smoking, after all. Don’t forget to share this important info with anyone you love!
