Workout at Work with TrekDesk Treadmill Desk

Lots of people complain that they just don't have time for exercise, what with work and a busy family life. But if you have a desk job, the solution might be found at the office.

The emerging field of “sedentary science” is sounding the alarm bells to corporations nationwide, explaining that keeping employees shackled to office chairs all day may be the number one reason for spiraling obesity rates and increasing levels of chronic disease in the United States. One potential answer to this health problem is to introduce innovations designed to keep employees moving while they work. KIRO News in Seattle, WA explored this emerging science today by focusing on one of the more popular innovations currently in use across the country, the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. The KIRO interview in its entirety may be heard here: http://mynorthwest.com/11/597449/Treadmill-desk-gives-you-workout-at-work.

Reporter Tim Haeck of KIRO FM News introduced the topic to his listening audience. “Lots of people complain that they just don't have time for exercise, what with work and a busy family life. But if you have a desk job, the solution might be found at the office. This is not sit and get fit. A Scottsdale, Arizona company is selling a workplace desk without a chair. Instead, the TrekDesk wraps around a treadmill. Instead of sitting all day, the office worker walks all day on a treadmill while talking on a phone and working on a computer.”

Haeck not only covered the reasons that employees are using the TrekDesk but also sought out a Vancouver, WA resident who actually won a free TrekDesk as part of their push for a “Movement Revolution” on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/trekdesk). Cindy Mayhak was searching for a way to workout at work when she discovered the TrekDesk. "[I was] trying to figure out how to fit in a little bit of exercise in my work day so that I have more time to spend with my family at the end of the day and not go home and worry about how I was going to fit in a workout."

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk treadmill desk is an affordable, full sized, height adjustable workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation. Workout at work with TrekDesk. No sweat!
