Bring physical activity back to the workplace simply by walking at slow speeds or pedaling during the work day....read more about proactive wellness in the workplace
For years physical activity has been engineered out of the workplace with the objective of improving employee productivity. Automation has replaced manual work, and advances in information systems and computing have made us more productive and sedentary at the same time. According to the Mayo Clinic, occupational related daily activity now burns 23,000 fewer calories annually than in 1960. This is equivalent to 6.5 pounds of weight gain per year simply from moving less while at work. Research results associated with inactivity have become increasingly clear that our sedentary lifestyles and general lack of physical activity is unhealthy and leads to obesity and many chronic health conditions. In fact, inactivity has been labeled as the new smoking for our generation.It’s time we start rethinking how we work.
Most everyone has activities during the day that can easily be performed while walking or pedaling. Phone calls, email, reading, webinars and conference calls are easy places to start. You will find that getting 6,000 – 10,000 steps a day is easier than you think just by starting with these simple tasks.You can add treadmill desks or bike desks into your personal office. Place them in common areas like lobbies, cafeterias and meeting areas to be shared by groups of people or add them to a fitness area as a light activity option.
If you already have a corporate wellness program, SMARTdesks Fit@Office products can help improve participation levels. Our treadmill desks automatically count steps walked using a patented technology, and our bikes count pedaling revolutions in the same way, with each revolution counting as the equivalent as a step. Both activities can easily be incorporated into your wellness program. Results can then be easily tracked with an online account, since all of our consoles include integrated Bluetooth communications.
Our SMARTdesks Fit@Office line includes products designed for individuals, as well as, products intended for groups of users to share throughout the day. Individual use products make a great addition to a traditional office, or can be used with a standing desk to add activity to an already healthy desk choice. Group use products can be placed in lobbies, activity areas, cafeterias and other general community areas commonly shared among employees, guests or clients.
