Celebrate American Heart Month with a Treadmill Desk
Date:1/28/2009

Yet another reason to use a treadmill desk to prevent obesity: heart health.

Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) January 28, 2009-- Beginning in 1963 Congress mandated the President to proclaim February as "American Heart Month". Typically this is the month of the largest funding drives for the American Heart Association and when most Americans are reminded about the causes of heart disease. A critical component to heart health and the biggest challenge facing most Americans is acquiring sufficient amounts of daily physical activity to combat the onset of heart disease. Treadmill desks represent a unique solution that allows individuals the opportunity of obtaining sufficient amounts of heart healthy exercise while still completing their work responsibilities at the office.

Treadmill desks are currently in use at many Fortune 500 companies and small businesses across America. The current challenge for most employees is finding a solution that is affordable since some treadmill desks retail between $4,500 and $6,000.

A treadmill desk manufacturer based in Phoenix, AZ is releasing a product that offers some unique benefits, priced at 1/10 the cost of comparable models. TrekDesk is a full sized, height adjustable workstation designed to attach to an existing treadmill.

"We originally designed TrekDesk to be used by small businesses and home office users but have had significant interest from corporate users as well due to cost efficiencies." states Steve Bordley, owner of TrekDesk. "Allowing users to add TrekDesk to an existing treadmill or to select a specific brand of treadmill has many distinct advantages. First, the cost basis is much lower. TrekDesk also offers users the opportunity of capitalizing on the incline features of a treadmill, the other treadmill desks do not offer this feature. In essence an employee can burn 2x the amount of calories walking at the same slow speed while working. An added benefit for home users is the dual use capacity of the treadmill, they can walk during their work day and use it later as a running machine if they so choose."

The heart healthy benefits of daily walking are well documented. Previous studies have shown that overweight individuals who engage in regular exercise have even less heart risk than normal weight individuals who are sedentary however more recent studies spotlight the need to both stay active during the day and lose excess pounds.

"Chairs are the enemy," states Bordley, "once employers realize this and adopt measures to keep their employees moving during the day they will see a boost in productivity and a decrease in sick days and health care costs. Many companies are rotating employees on two hour shifts to treadmill desks, the health benefits are becoming obvious."

Daily use of a treadmill desk can also help prevent many major diseases, increase productivity, boost mood, and restore health. "People seem to focus most on the weight loss achieved by using a treadmill desk which can be significant however the health restorative, mental and mood enhancing benefits are significant as well," states Bordley.
