It’s probably not a great idea to be walking/working at the same time, especially NOT on a treadmill. But that’s exactly how Eric Wilheim and some of his employees work at Instructables. I actually have a manual treadmill by my side, you can take a look at my setup here. Maybe when I move… I will try this. Um…
This week's FarmVille Freak of the Week is a very deserving KMDomino! As we all know, our addiction to farming can take up hours of our time. Since FarmVille can be time consuming and working out can be boring, wouldn't it be nice to farm and exercise at the same time? Our FarmVille Freak of the Week found out how!
I spent the afternoon getting a new treadmill, for the purpose of making us a computer treadmill combination. Turned out, it was dirt easy.
I used to have a stand-up desk at work. Then that got replaced by a pair of standup workstations above a more normal desk. Then I moved offices and switched roles from sysadmin to programmer and got the most normal desk ever.
TrekDesk treadmill desks fit virtually any treadmill and allow employees/students the opportunity to walk slowly while they work without sweating or extra time out of their day. The Surgeon General recommends a MINIMUM 10,000 steps per day (5 miles) achievable in 3-4 hours with the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. Benefits of a healthy lifestyle and walking 5 miles per day with a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk include:
The more Americans engage in one of their favorite pastimes — sitting around — the shorter their average life span, a new study suggests.
The effect remained even after researchers factored out obesity or the level of daily physical activity people were engaged in, according to a study of more than 120,000 American adults.
Just because you have a desk job doesn't mean you need to watch your waistline grow year after year. If you can walk, you can use a treadmill desk. It's a surefire way to burn extra calories and feel healthier while you get your work done.
A Treadmill Desk is a working desk built around a treadmill. A person using the treadmill desk walks slowly on the treadmill while continuing to perform office tasks at the desk.
There are several types of treadmill desks available on the open market. Some incorporate a traditional treadmill with a desktop built over it, while most are now commercially built for this specific use.
The aim of a treadmill desk is to integrate movement and gentle exercise into the working day of an otherwise sedentary office worker. Rather than sitting all day in a chair, a treadmill desk allows desk-based workers to stand and take a slow walk while working.
We all know that physical activity is important for good health—regardless of your age, gender or body weight, living an active lifestyle can improve your quality of life and dramatically reduce your risk of death and disease. But even if you are meeting current physical activity guidelines by exercising for one hour per day (something few Americans manage on a consistent basis), that leaves 15 to 16 hours per day when you are not being active. Does it matter how you spend those hours, which account for more than 90% of your day? For example, does it matter whether you spend those 16 hours sitting on your butt, versus standing or walking at a leisurely pace? Fortunately or unfortunately, new evidence suggests that it does matter, and in a big way.
When a new fitness fad pops up, I'm skeptical. One that allows people to incorporate their workouts into the workday without even changing their suits or breaking a sweat sounds too good to be true.
ROCHESTER, Minn. — Sitting at their desks is about the last thing workers would do in Dr. James Levine's office of the future.
Instead of being sedentary in front of their computers, they'd stand. But instead of standing still, they'd walk on a treadmill. And instead of meeting around a conference table, they'd talk business while walking laps on a track.
Lifehacker emeritus Gina Trapani recently took the standing desk plunge that she's written up many times before, and, after a few days and some adjustments, is digging her new, healthier setup. Here's how she, and others like her, made the transition.
