Sedentary Jobs Are Slowly Killing Employees & Crippling Our Economy

The Huffington Post reported yesterday on Pennington Biomedical Research Center’s contention that America’s obesity epidemic is directly tied to the loss of active jobs and a corresponding health crisis. The article titled “8 Ways to Prevent Your Office From Killing You” boldly features an innovative solution to office inactivity: the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.

“The more physical activity you do throughout the day, the healthier you are going to be — bottom line,” stated Tim Church of Pennington in the Huffington article. “When engaged, your muscles metabolize blood sugar, but when you’re sitting all day, you’re at risk for metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes and heart disease.”

Dr. Church’s research has revealed that sedentary jobs have increased exponentially since the 1960’s and the resulting casualty has been employee’s health.

“Our movement revolution has been warning of the health dangers of sedentary office environments since 2009,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks. “While the nature of work evolves increasingly sedentary we can counteract the health risks by implementing movement into the office environment. This is not rocket science.”

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk treadmill desk is an affordable, full sized, height adjustable workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.
