- Workplace sitting time to be reduced [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Workplace sitting time will be reduced by 60 minutes across an 8 hour work day and this time will be replaced by standing.
- Total sitting time will be reduced [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Total sitting time will be reduced by 30 minutes across a 16 hour day. Decreased sitting during the weekday will not be fully compensated for by increased sitting during nonwork hours.
- Energy expenditure will increase [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Energy expenditure will increase across an 8 hour workday and a 16 hour day.
- Health behavior change of consuming a lower fat diet [ Time Frame: 12 months ]The non-targeted health behavior of consuming a lower fat diet will co-occur with standing behavior. Increases in standing behavior will be inversely correlated with changes in total dietary fat intake.
- Body weight, BMI, and fat mass reduction [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Body weight, BMI, and fast mass will be reduced by 6 months.
- Changes in musculoskeletal symptoms [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Increases in standing behavior will be correlated with changes in musculoskeletal symptoms.
