AJ Products joins ukactive in the fight to get more people more active

AJ Products is proud to announce that, as part of our commitment to healthy and active lifestyles, we will be a member of ukactive from September 2018.

ukactive is a not-for-profit organisation comprised of over 3,500 members and partners from across the UK active lifestyle sector from multinational brands to local leisure centres and community activity organisers. Their aim is "to get more people, more active, more often". They are "committed to improving the health of the nation through promoting active lifestyles" .

At AJ Products we think staying fit and healthy should be something that anyone can do. Given the long hours many adults spend sitting down while at work, it is essential to combat this issue in the workplace. We encourage office workers to get fit at their desks through our range of affordable sit-stand desks and active office furniture.

There’s extensive research to suggest that a sedentary lifestyle can lead to health conditions including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease and musculoskeletal problems, even if you do regular exercise. On the other hand, standing up for just a few extra hours a day can have huge benefits to your health. A study conducted by the University of Chester measured the effects of standing for at least three hours a day for a week. It showed that by doing this every day for a year you burn "about 30,000 extra calories…the equivalent of running about 10 marathons a year".

AJ Products has a broad range of products that can help employees to be more active and sit less at work: from sit-stand desks and standing meeting tables to active seating and anti-fatigue mats.

Our aim with our standing desks was to introduce a range of easy-to-use electric desks at affordable prices so that good ergonomics could become part of every workplace. They are now our bestselling product. To complement the desks, we also have a range of active sitting chairs, sometimes known as a balance stools, which are designed to keep your body moving even when you are sitting, strengthen back and core muscles, and improve your circulation. The latest addition to our active furniture range is a unique height-adjustable meeting table that makes it easy to switch between sitting and standing meetings, boosting both productivity and fitness. At AJ Products our solutions make sure you never sit still at work!

By becoming a member of ukactive, AJ Products can help to get the message out to more people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. We want to make every workplace happier, healthier and more active!
