Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) November 14, 2010
TrekDesk Treadmill Desk has been cited by U.S. News & World Report as a “fitness splurge worth the money”, joining other leading national publications including Forbes, Fitness Magazine, American Fitness, and HR Magazine recognizing the health merits of TrekDesk.
U.S. News & World Report polled top fitness professionals nationwide to identify intelligent health products that were most effective and worth the investment. “As a leading authority on health institution ratings in the U.S. we were especially pleased by the recognition from U.S. News & World Report,” stated CEO Steve Bordley. “Our goal is change the sedentary mindset and environment in America and improve the health of the nation through a movement revolution. This recognition helps spread the message.”
Researchers at leading public/private health institutes and universities have cast dire projections regarding the health consequences of sedentary lifestyles and their link to more than 58 obesity related diseases currently crippling the health care system including the nation’s top 3 killers: heart disease, stroke and cancer.
Leading a healthy lifestyle and walking 10,000 steps a day would reduce the initial rate of heart attacks by 90%, stroke by 70%, type 2 diabetes by 50%, and cancers by 30%-70% in the U.S. (source: AHA, ADA and NIH).
Despite the curative powers of walking, a recent report out of the University of Tennessee showed Americans walk less than 5,000 steps per day, citing lack of time and motivation as the top two reasons for sedentary behaviors.
Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, boost mood and mental abilities, and prevent disease without requiring additional time or extra motivation.
TrekDesk is currently available for sale online at TrekDesk.com for $479.00 including free shipping.
