Long hours spent sitting at work, at home and commuting increase the risk of a multitude of health conditions including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and musculoskeletal problems, such as back and joint pain. Worryingly, regular exercise cannot undo the negative effects of this sedentary behaviour. However, reducing the time you sit by standing up during your workday has been shown to have a positive effect on your overall health. It stands to reason then that moving would be even better.
That’s why AJ Products has launched a desk treadmill designed to be easy to use while you work. Switching between sitting, standing and light exercise, such as walking or cycling, is a great way to boost energy levels. With a walking treadmill for your desk, you don’t have to go fast or work up a sweat in order for your body to experience the benefits. A slow steady pace is enough to improve your fitness levels. With a maximum speed of 6.0 km/h, an entry-level treadmill from AJ Products encourages walking rather than running. It allows users of all levels of fitness to keep moving and get their heart rate up without breaking a sweat. This type of gentle exercise increases blood circulation and burns more calories than sitting or standing still, which in turn boosts oxygen and energy levels.
Small changes make all the difference to your overall wellbeing: doing low-intensity exercise at your desk, walking to work, taking the stairs instead of the lift…the more movement you can 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.
