Those in the fitness industry who’ve wanted to see a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk in action and try out the innovative online weight control program from dotFIT will have the opportunity to do both at the 2012 IHRSA convention and tradeshow in Los Angeles March 14-17, 2012.
IHRSA, the ‘International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association’ is the trade association serving the health and fitness club industry. IHRSA’s mission is to grow, protect and promote the health and fitness industry, and to provide its members with benefits that will help them be more successful.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to show how regular, low-impact activity, such as walking on a treadmill while using a TrekDesk during the day, can have a tremendous impact on your overall health and fitness,” said Kat Barefield, Corporate Dietitian for dotFIT.
A sedentary lifestyle has been shown to be a huge contributor to weight gain in recent decades. The TrekDesk, which functions as an accessory to most treadmills, allows users to walk slowly while they work, talk on the phone, use their computer or watch TV. The benefits of walking while working can be life changing and include weight loss, disease prevention, health restoration, mood improvement, and productivity increases.
“Of course, using a TrekDesk doesn’t make up for a vigorous cardio workout or resistance training, but we believe it can be a game-changer for those people who work out but feel like they aren’t getting anywhere with their weight goals. And at the IHRSA show we’ll demonstrate not only what a difference continuous activity can make, but also how motivating it is to capture and see that activity through our online program,” said Barefield, who’s also a certified personal trainer.
On Friday, March 16, dotFIT will raffle off an online program package (which includes a body-sensing device), valued at over $300, as well as a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk, valued at over $500.
“We are excited at the opportunity to pair up with dotFIT Worldwide at the IHRSA Convention, “ stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks. “TrekDesk combined with dotFIT Worldwide’s range of health tools and products offers a complete health solution for trainers, employers and individual health enthusiasts alike.”
