A New Kind of Corporate Workout
For most lawyers, the phrase "corporate workout" describes a complex financial transactional process, which brings to mind images of stressed out lawyers shuffling through documents or pedaling different versions of an agreement during negotiations. But at the Boston office of Roseland, N.J.-based law firm Lowenstein Sandler, corporate workouts have a more colloquial meaning, with lawyers shuffling on treadmills or pedaling on exercise bikes installed in their offices.
As this news video shows, Lowenstein has gone the extra mile to help lawyers and staff incorporate exercise into their day-to-day work routine. The video portrays lawyer Sarah Reed, dressed for success in a smart dress and two inch heels, striding on a treadmill that incorporates a stand fashioned for her computer, while another lawyer breathlessly chugs away on a recumbent bike while reading legal material. There's also a paralegal who jumps on a trampoline while discussing her cases. Admittedly, these lawyers look a little foolish working up a sweat in their business clothes or doing doorway chin-ups in heels and a dress, but more power to them. After all, getting fit at work beats having fits at work.
