Introducing the desk bike: an end to sedentary working

Numerous studies have identified a sedentary lifestyle as one of the biggest risk factors for significant health issues such as cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. As the average office worker spends 6-8 hours sitting each day, these warnings have led to many people starting to change the way they work.

Regular movement has been shown to increase metabolism, strengthen core muscles, improve posture and boost concentration levels. The most effective way to combat a lack of physical activity while working is to vary between sitting, standing, walking and low-intensity exercise throughout your workday.

That’s why AJ Products has launched a desk bike, designed to add another level of movement into your daily routine. With a desk bike you can move as much as you want without having to take time away from your desk, allowing you to increase productivity and well-being at the same time.

Using a desk bike is not about cardio training but rather maintaining a low steady speed to boost circulation and keep your body moving. This low-intensity workout breaks the damaging cycle of a sedentary lifestyle, yet it is easy to pedal several miles a day without feeling fatigued. By replacing sitting or standing with this type of activity, you can increase your metabolism and burn more calories; there is also a positive impact on your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Low-level physical activity throughout the day is the only way to combat the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. The more movement you fit into your day, the better it is for your health.

AJ Products focuses on ways to solve the problem of a sedentary workday. As a member of ukactive, the company is committed to making workplaces healthier and more active through an innovative and ever-growing range of sit-stand furniture.
