The TrekDesk Treadmill Desk

By Rick Garnerthe-trek-desk2

WCTV Boston recently aired a health news segment entitled “Death by Desk,” chronicling the health hazards of sedentary office environments. Their solutions to the problem focused on creative ways to stay moving during the day including walking while working with a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.

The news segment warned that sedentary office environments are crippling the health of American workers of all ages and are leading to sharp increases in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancers, and even the risk of an early death. TrekDesk Treadmill Desks were featured as an innovative way to combat the sedentary nature of the work environment.

“WCTV joins FOX, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR and numerous other local and national stations who have brought TrekDesk treadmill desks to the attention of American employers and employees,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks. “We invite everyone to join into the ‘Movement Revolution’ we have been promoting since 2008 hoping to increase the average number of daily steps taken by Americans from 5,000 to 10,000 within the next five years. The impact on the health of our nation would be extraordinary. Thousands of employees across America are now reaching this goal in as little as three hours a day using TrekDesks.”

The American Heart Association: Walking 10,000 steps per day can help reduce initial heart attack rates by 90% and the risk of stroke by 70%.

The American Diabetes Association: Walking 10,000 steps per day can help reduce rate of Type II diabetes by 50%

National Institutes of Health: Walking 10,000 steps per day can help reduce cancer rates by 30-70%

Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized 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.
