The nature of work has become increasingly sedentary and we are paying a huge global health price as a result.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
In a recent article entitled “The Cubicle Workout” Australia’s most read newspaper, the Sydney Herald, educated employees Down Under about how to workout at work. TrekDesk treadmill desks were featured as a unique innovation that could positively impact the dire health issues faced in Australia which are a direct result of inactivity at the office and at home. Australia has overweight/obesity rates similar to that found in the United States according to studies done by the World Health Organization. The affiliated health care costs are soaring out of control just as they are here.
“People are surprised to learn that obesity is a growing global problem, existing in alarming levels in every developed nation. The nature of work has become increasingly sedentary and we are paying a huge global health price as a result,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks.
Australia has taken drastic measures to fight their growing obesity problem. In 2008, the government of New South Wales announced a plan to fund bariatric surgeries for morbidly obese patients within their district in an effort to contain out of control health care costs. The national government has given tax subsidies to fund gym memberships and are banning junk food advertisements targeted at children as well.
“All of these initiatives are impressive in their intent,” related Bordley. “However the systemic issue revolves around inactivity and until that is addressed, no nation is going to reverse their obesity epidemic.”
