Clark Howard is a nationally syndicated consumer expert who advises consumers how to save more, spend less and avoid getting ripped off. His radio show is heard every day on more than 200 radio stations throughout North America. He is also co-host of HLN's nightly news program Evening Express with CNN's Ryan Smith. "Save more and spend less" is more than just a motto for Clark; it's a way of life. As a successful lifelong entrepreneur, media star and best-selling author, the Atlanta-based "consumer champion" is dedicated to helping Americans of all means get ahead in life. This week Clark introduced his listening audience to an affordable invention designed to keep them healthy: the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.

 

Clark reported on one of the significant drawbacks to the idea of a treadmill desk initially, the cost. “The big problem with work treadmills has been the cost, which can be upwards of several thousand dollars. But now an entrepreneur has come out with an affordable treadmill desk. TrekDesk.com offers a $479 desk that goes over your existing treadmill. The Washington Post reports that people who sit on their rear ends all day suffer health problems regardless of whether they exercise three times a week as most nutritionists recommend.”

 

“Our mission all along has been to educate Americans to the health hazards inflicted by sedentary environments,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. “We were gratified to hear that Clark recognized the value of sharing this information to his national audience.”
