With nearly 70% of the nation’s adult population overweight and half that number obese, health officials are scrambling to find ways to reverse the tide and put America back on a healthy track. The number one culprit according to many experts? Sedentary lifestyles. Sitting is now equated with smoking in regards to health risks. Health conscious Colorado companies and individuals have turned to a more common sense approach to the problem. If sitting is to be blame than standing and walking is most likely the solution. They are using TrekDesk Treadmill Desks to workout at work.
AR of Lake Mary, Florida was intrigued by the idea of walking and working the moment she saw it. “When I first came across the TrekDesk advertisement online, I thought “Wow, how wild is that?” I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I went back online to read reviews and watched the videos of current customers. I wanted one! I made the commitment and my husband reorganized my home office to accommodate the TrekDesk and my treadmill. I can type, write, answer the phone, etc. just as I normally would sitting down. My desk faces the window so it’s like I’m strolling in the park all day. I feel more productive…and I’m burning 600+ calories every day. My goal in using the TrekDesk is not weight loss per se but more so avoiding weight gain and keeping my metabolism balanced. This effort is for long-term maintenance.”
LM of Pompano Beach has been a user of the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk for the past year and definitely qualifies as a power walker. While TrekDesk recommends walking at 1.2 -1.5 mph, she walks at 2.8 mph all day long. “I get on my TrekDesk at 8:30 every morning, Monday through Friday, and usually don’t get off until between 6 – 6:30 PM with a short lunch break. I typically log between 10 – 13 miles per day at pace of 2.8 miles per hour and have logged over 1,500 miles in the year since I bought my TrekDesk.”
MK of St. Augustine, Florida just recently starting to workout at work with a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk offered this review on Amazon.com, “LOVE THIS! Delivered on the day it was promised. Excellent condition. Have used it every day – working and walking is extremely easy!”
