Abstract: Sedentary behaviors are associated with a higher risk of mortality as well as deteriorated metabolic health. Interruption of sedentary behavior appears to have beneficial effects on health and well-being of people. Few studies have examined the effects of alternatives to sitting on well-being of employees at work. Using semi-experimental protocol, the potential of active meetings on ergocycle have been quantified and evaluated with 30 employees of Université Laval. The results showed that it is possible to perform an active meeting of 60 minutes at an intensity varying between low and moderate without reducing the quality of work. Active meetings seem to have the potential to reduce perceived stress during cognitive effort, without compromising productivity. In our opinion, it would be in the interest of public health to focus more on interventions that reduce sedentary behavior in workplace.
