Stay fit while you work with an adjustable-height exercise desk available from The Human Solution. Treadmill desks and bike desks are designed to keep you moving throughout the workday, combating fatigue, obesity, poor circulation, increased risk for disease, and other health problems associated with prolonged sitting. The science is in, and it's hard to ignore: all-day sitting is killing us.
Obesity is now the number two cause of preventable death in the United States. Less than 17% of adults currently fall into the "normal BMI" range, and only 3-5% meet the minimum recommendations for physical activity. Exercise desks allow you to make a significant yet sustainable change in your lifestyle at work. These ergonomic active workstations pair our popular sit-stand desks with a treadmill, recumbent bike, or spin bike to provide an easy solution for staying active and fit at the workplace. Mayo Clinic researchers estimate that overweight office workers who use a treadmill desk for two or three hours per day, walking at an average of 1.5 miles per hour, can lose up to 66 pounds in one year. Walking reduces depression, lowers your risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, slows down the aging process, and improves cognitive abilities.
In addition to the considerable health benefits of walking, you'll find that the use of an adjustable-height exercise desk leaves you feeling more energized and focused, so you won't need that mid-afternoon caffeine or sugar boost. Finally, you'll likely notice an improvement in any back, neck, or shoulder pain you may have from all-day sitting. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to feel better in every way just by doing a little light walking.
