Purpose of Study 

The rates of sedentary activity are increasing. Studies have shown that time spent on doing sedentary activities is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Prior studies have shown that interrupting inactivity improved the body's handling of blood glucose and gene expression. The investigators plan to explore this further by examining the effects of interrupting 4 hours of inactivity with 2 minutes of moderate intensity exercise every 20 minutes on the following metabolic parameters: blood pressure, cortisol, C-Reactive Protein, glucose and insulin levels.
