Workout at work? TrekDesk Treadmill Desk’s Facebook contest makes it possible. TrekDesk surpassed 13,670 new members today on its Facebook page due to growing awareness of the health dangers facing sedentary employees. Once TrekDesk Treadmill Desk reaches 14,000 followers on its Facebook page, dedicated to advancing their “Movement Revolution”, a member will be randomly selected to win a free TrekDesk.
Two years ago a workout at work and the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk were viewed as a mere novelty within the context of employee wellness programs. That novelty has evolved into a growing base of converts and supporters among employees, students, health professionals, universities and corporate wellness providers alike. “Our mission is to educate America about the extreme health dangers posed by sedentary environments both at work and in schools. Facebook has been a very successful medium for us to promote the message of daily movement allowing its message of health to spread virally among students and employees,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks.
“This is a grass roots movement. Employees are realizing they are mortgaging their health by sitting all day at the office and lobbying their employers to integrate movement into the office space allowing them to workout at work.”
TrekDesk Treadmill Desks are in use in home offices, Fortune 500 companies, schools, universities, and health centers across the country and internationally.
