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.
