According to the 2010 “Stress in America” survey just released by the American Psychological Association, 3 out of every 4 U.S. adults report feeling stressed with 25% reporting extreme stress levels. The top three reasons for stress reported were money, work anxiety and the economy however the researchers cited obesity and lack of exercise as major underlying contributors to the problem. TrekDesk Treadmill Desks offer a unique solution to battle stress and boost the health and mood of the nation.
Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, boost mood and reduce stress without taking any extra time out of their day.
“Lack of movement causes most of the health concerns in America today including stress. The APA reported that U.S. adults cited lack of time, motivation and energy as the top 3 reasons they do not engage in healthy activity even though they knew exercise would dramatically decrease their stress levels and health risks,” stated TrekDesk CEO Steve Bordley. “TrekDesk takes these three concerns off the table requiring no additional time out of the day, motivation or will power. Simply walk slowly through the day while completing normal office tasks.”
Walking has been proven to reduce cortisol levels (a hormone produced by a body under stress) and increases good mood hormones such as serotonin and dopamine, similar to a “runners high.”
Walking throughout the day also enhances health, prevents disease and reduces medical costs. “47 million Americans do not have health insurance but that does not mean they have to remain at risk, the best health insurance policy is keeping the body in motion,” stated Bordley. “Considering that 84% of all medical claims are the direct result of poor lifestyle choices and lack of exercise Americans have the power to turn our current health care crisis around quickly. Our Movement Revolution is designed to raise this awareness. We must stop waiting for the government to solve a problem we have created.”
