Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
The office desk has never had a good reputation – especially with studies confirming that sitting all day is bad for our health. The standing desk was a healthy step forward. Now LifeSpan is bringing those standing desks up to speed with a treadmill base and Bluetooth controller that turns any standing desk into a treadmill desk, putting control of your wellness at your fingertips.
The new LifeSpan DT-3 display sits conveniently on a standing desk and plugs into a LifeSpan treadmill base. Its familiar treadmill controls show speed, distance, steps taken, time spent and calories burned. It also allows you to synchronize this data over Bluetooth with your Mac or PC – which in turn synchronizes the information with an online account where you can set goals and track progress.
“If you wanted to walk 10,000 steps a day while you’re at the office, or lose weight without making any other changes to your lifestyle, this is the way to do it,” said LifeSpan President Peter Schenk. “The idea is to take all of your results, automatically track them for you and make it real by presenting it visually over time, against your goals. We have computers sitting in front of us all day, while we’re trying to stay active at work. Now LifeSpan is the bridge between your treadmill and computer.”
The online account that holds the synchronized data is the LifeSpan Fitness Club. Data from treadmills and a range of other LifeSpan products is transmitted here and shows a complete picture of your physical activity. It also allows users to speak with certified trainers and offers videos of suggested exercises. A trial membership to the club is free with the purchase of any compatible LifeSpan product.
The LifeSpan DT-3 comes with one of three LifeSpan treadmill bases, is compatible with any standing desk and costs between $799.99 and $1,899.99 at lifespanfitness.com.
