Introducing the desk treadmill: a revolution in the way we work
Walk and work at the same time with a desk treadmill
In recent years, numerous studies have underlined the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. The many hours we spend sitting at work, commuting, in front of the TV, etc. are increasing our risk of a multitude of health conditions including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and musculoskeletal problems, such as back and joint pain. Worryingly, regular exercise cannot undo the negative effects of this behaviour. We don’t just need to do more exercise, we need to sit less.
Standing up at your desk has been shown to have a positive effect on your overall health. It stands to reason then that moving would be even better.
Stay in shape by doing light exercise during the workday
Switching between sitting, standing and light exercise, such as walking or cycling, is a great way to boost energy levels. The walking treadmill from AJ Products is designed to be easy to use while you work. You don't have to go fast or work up a sweat in order for your body to experience the benefits. A slow steady pace is enough to improve your fitness levels. With a maximum speed of 6.0 km/h, this entry-level treadmill encourages walking rather than running. It allows users of all levels of fitness to keep moving and get their heartrate up without breaking a sweat. This type of gentle exercise increases blood circulation and burns more calories than sitting or standing still, which in turn boosts oxygen and energy levels.
Physical inactivity also has a negative impact on mental health as well as productivity at work. By boosting your oxygen and energy levels, walking can make you feel less tired and stressed and help you to focus on your work.
Easy to use in the office
One of the biggest benefits of the desk treadmill from AJ Products is its lightweight and flexible design, which allows the user to fold it up and store it out of the way between uses. You may find that some tasks are easier to do while standing still or even sitting. Used in conjunction with a sit-stand desk, how you work is up to you. Because it’s so easy to wheel into position, the treadmill can be moved around the office so that several colleagues can use it during the day.
It’s easy to turn your workplace into somewhere that encourages greater levels of physical activity instead of contributing to the problem of a sedentary lifestyle. Remember that small changes make all the difference: doing low-intensity exercise at your desk, walking to work, running up and down the stairs instead of taking the lift…the more movement you can fit into your day, the better it is for your health.
