MUSING – The Trek Desk: Exercise, Work, and Lose Weight
An increase in sedentary work has contributed to bulging bodies. People struggle making time to exercise, and many complain of stiff joints and other aches and pains. A new invention, the Trek Desk, just may be the answer to losing weight, increasing mental acuity and restoring energy if you spend much of your time working on a computer.
The adjustable workstation which fits over most treadmills provides a no sweat work out. Steve Bordley, real estate agent turned entrepreneur, invented the Trek Desk while recovering from an accident that threatened to leave him disabled. This may not be so “new” as some famous historical figures such as Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill were known to use “standing desks.’ No doubt they realized there is less load on the back when standing rather than sitting. Individuals who walked 5 miles per day at the recommended one to two mile per hour pace for six months lost two to three pounds per week and saw a 15% increase in memory and cognitive ability.
You might be thinking this seems difficult, but reports indicate you develop a rhythm and do not fatigue with the slow steady pace-and you can still multitask! So, this might be your solution to staying or getting fit. For less than $500 and with “some assembly required,” you can be on your way to lubricating your joints, increasing your mental acuity, and shedding aches, pains, and pounds. VISIT THE WEBSITE
