Summary: Health conscious employees realize that their sedentary occupations are a major health risk but often feel powerless to affect change in the office. TrekDesk Treadmill Desks are proving to be a valuable solution.
Dee Rubina, had already made drastic life changes which led to a weight loss of 110 lbs before accepting a position with FiltersFast.com in Monroe, North Carolina but gravely feared a sedentary desk job would unravel her health progress. Her solution? A little research led her to the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk allowing her to lose an additional 40 lbs while walking at work and maintain her health.
Dee, explained her initial concerns with accepting a position that involved a sedentary office environment, “I was about 40 pounds away from my goal weight and struggling with a new office job where I sat for 8 to 9 hours every day. I started to think that there had to be a way I could walk. But where to find that kind of time? After researching online, I found TrekDesk.com and it all clicked.”
