Working And Loosing Weight

By Aaron Miller

Perhaps you’ve never heard of it, but office-walking, or work-walking, is a slowly but steadily growing movement of people who are literally sick and tired of being forced to sit all day in front of a computer!

They’re literally sick and tired because recent research, particularly from world-famous Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, indicates that sitting for hours on end day in day out bears dramatically detrimental effects on the body, such that even those who exercise regularly – even daily – will be adversely affected when compared against people who do not sit so much. Indeed, the evidence is clear that by sitting so much, the beneficial health effects of an otherwise healthy lifestyle are almost wholly negated!

Such data has significant implications for our busy modern 24-hour lifestyles, and several have, in the past five years since these findings were released, been taking matters into their own hands. How? By pairing treadmills with their workstation set-ups! Hence the work-walking or office-walking movement (yes, pun intended).

It’s really simple to do, now that a handful of businesses have sprung up to capitalize on this emerging market that combines serious work and leisurely strolls for a holistic approach to modern life. Signature Furniture sells a treadmill and desk combination, while TreadDesk offers its treadmill and desks separately or as a package. At the very high-end of the scale, Steelcase’s Workstation offers what’s regarded as the best treadmill available specifically developed for walking, which unfortunately is only sold along with a desk.

Aside from those prepackaged solutions, it’s possible to combine a regular treadmill with something like the TrekDesk, which provides a spacious desktop for your monitor, keyboard, and everything else typically found on a desk. Height-adjustable Geek Desks are also popular in this movement, with various sizes and the option to install your own desktop. There’s also the Air Desk for individuals who cannot afford the cost of a full-fledged desk or who do not have the space for one.
