-- Filters Fast LLC, the largest online retailer for water and air filters, began offering its employees a unique way of staying fit and getting in shape, while working. Using a TrekDesk, which is a treadmill desk, employees can walk slowly while they work and burn calories without sweating. The TrekDesk adds vitality to the monotonous routine you go through daily and makes it fun to exercise as you work.
According to the American Heart Association, walking 10,000 steps per day can help to reduce your stroke rate by 70% and reduce your initial heart attack rate by 90%. TrekDesk is proven to be effective for weight loss, boosting your mood, disease prevention, increasing productivity and cognitive functions without leaving your desk.
Studies show that sitting six hours or more per day, makes you up to 40% more likely to die within 15 years than someone who sits less than 3 hours, even if you have a weekly exercise regimen. Sitting at work for extended periods of time during a seven or eight hour work day, at five days per week increases obesity and reduces energy levels. Walking burns three to five times more calories than sitting. The human body is not designed to sit for long periods of time.
TrekDesk is an exciting and innovative way of exercising while increasing your energy levels and productivity at work. This workstation will make a huge impact on workers to increase the required amount of exercising needed to reduce the sedentary nature of the work environment.
Since 2004, Filters Fast remains committed as an authoritative resource to let consumers know about the importance of changing their air filters and water filters. By simplifying a sometimes mundane, but very necessary task, Filters Fast LLC strives to add to their customer’s overall quality of life by offering first-rate products at the best competitive prices.
