Exceeding the Government's Minimum Health Guidelines with a Treadmill Desk
Date:12/5/2008

The CDC reported today that 1 out of 3 American adults do not engage in sufficient levels of daily exercise. Treadmill desks provide an answer to the two reasons most cited for these levels of inactivity.

Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) December 5, 2008 -- Survey results from 399,000 Americans conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans released today showed that a third of adults do not engage in the minimum recommended amounts of daily exercise. Previous studies by the CDC cast two thirds of American adults overweight with 50% of this group classified as obese. Americans cite lack of enough time in the day and will power as the two main culprits for not exercising, unaware of a solution that requires no additional time or will power: a treadmill desk.

"Treadmill desks allow employees to walk while they work at slow speeds, without sweating and delivers significant health benefits without the burden of taking extra time out of their day," states Steve Bordley, President of TrekDesk, a treadmill desk manufacturer. "The biggest burden employees face is finding the time and motivation to engage in exercise, treadmill desks take away those challenges. Just turn it on and go to work, at the end of the day they have burned between 800 to 1400 calories. That equates to a fat loss of 1-2 pounds per week."

Americans just are not moving as much as they did in the past. On average an American adult burns 700 calories less per day than they did just 40 years ago, yet consumes approximately 100 calories more. That 800 calorie daily increase adds up quickly considering 3500 calories accounts for one pound of weight gain.

Working with TrekDesk at 1.2 mph and adjusting the elevation level of the treadmill to 6 will burn those 800 calories in just three hours. "Walking at 1.2 mph it is easy to type, talk on the phone or perform nearly any work activity," stated Bordley. "The weight loss will occur naturally but more important are the additional health benefits of walking including disease prevention, increases in energy, production and overall mood." TrekDesk's website at http://www.trekdesk.com contains excerpts of numerous research articles focusing on the benefits of daily walking.

The CDC report further found that exercise participant rates were lowest for those with less than a high school diploma (52.2%) and highest for college graduates (70.3%). The CDC admits that the information guidelines may be confusing and that "additional efforts are needed to further increase physical activity."
While obesity rates climb Americans are inundated with information and products to lose weight. Consistently they learn of yet another new breakthrough in the lab that may someday lead to a cure for obesity yet just 40 years ago there was little talk of an obesity crisis. Approximately 2,380 years ago Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, termed walking "man's best medicine".

Perhaps it is time to consider that the most important steps we can take for our health are our own.
