Wednesday, April 3rd is National Walking Day and the American Heart Association is inviting the public to get out and show their support against heart disease by taking the pledge to increase their daily walking. The problem for most working adults is that they will be confined to a desk all day. TrekDesk Treadmill Desk offers a solution to the problem.
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 daily exercise to lose weight, maintain health, reduce stress, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.
The Surgeon General advises Americans to take a minimum of 10,000 steps per day yet according to studies from the University of Tennessee the average American adult walks less than half of that amount. This level of yearly inactivity has led to many of the health problems now facing America and other developed nations around the globe. It is estimated that the cost of obesity related health conditions costs American employers in excess of $225.8 billion in productivity losses however the human toll exacted is much greater. Inactivity more than doubles the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death in this country.
“National Walking Day hopefully reminds our nation that the major health threats we face could be diminished significantly simply by moving more and controlling the types of food we put in our bodies,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. “Our hope is that employers will recognize the productivity losses caused by sedentary office environments so that they will incorporate more measures that encourage movement throughout the workday.”
