Summary: A Recent study proves that moderate activity such as walking may assist in the likelihood of conception while vigorous exercise was shown to have the opposite effect.

TrekDesk Treadmill Desks offer an employee the opportunity to walk slowly through out the day. This ability to walk daily provides some tremendous health benefits including weight loss, disease prevention and productivity increases. A new study on the benefits of walking show that TrekDesk Treadmill Desks may help in another surprising area: conception.

 

Pregnancy Enhanced by Exercise

The new study involved 3,000 women and was conducted by Boston University’s School of Public Health. It found that moderate activity such as walking benefited the fertility rates of women with all body types while intense, vigorous exercise lowered the chances of conception for normal weight women (no impact for overweight women was found).

The study further found that moderate exercise was associated with slight decreases in the term of pregnancies. Vigorous exercise five or more times per week in normal weight women delayed conception in a given month as much as 50%. The study authors made it clear that further studies were needed before drawing major health conclusions with one main exception: regular, moderate physical activity has health benefits for all women and body types.

“The impact of walking on health is well documented,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks. “The challenge in today’s society is finding the time and motivation to walk a minimum of 5 miles a day for health. TrekDesk allows an employee to do this in as little as 3 hours without leaving their desk.”
