Dance Dance Revolution and Wii Fit are two of many games that get you moving around, and playing away the calories.
Here is a trick employed by good racket sports players to build up forearm strength. Cover a table or smooth surface with a sizable sheet of newsprint. With your dominant hand, the paper should be crumpled up for 30 seconds. Do this two times and then go to the other hand and do it once. You should do it a total of 4 times on your dominant hand. Swapping your desk chair for an exercise ball can be a great move, so long as you are able to balance upon the ball safely. When you sit on a ball you can help your core muscles tone and improve, and you do this while sitting right at your desk. You can use your fitness ball to perform a number of exercises at or near your desk during the day.
