Do you have any idea how your colleagues will feel or say about you if you are not even able to complete one set of exercises? This question is most of the time enough for people to push harder than their limits because the fear of being laughed at or feeling embarrassed can make anyone do extraordinary things.
When you will see that your colleagues are just standing behind you and watching your workout you will naturally give your best and will push your body to the limits so they can see you are not just some computer guy that sits all day. Nope! You are a fitness freak!

Offices are the places where you cannot talk or hangout openly without your boss breathing down your neck. As a result, most people remain conservative and do not mingle a lot.
Exercising with your colleagues in a place where you have the freedom to speak your mind and talk about how ever you like can really allow you to connect with your colleagues.
