I could not believe my eyes when I read my google alerts…I thought it was a joke, but no. This is a real desk created by Dr. James Levine, a doctor from the Mayo Clinic.
Is this what it has come to? Employees are now going to be walking at work for weight loss? Did anyone tell Dr. Levine that the body adapts to stress very quickly. So after the first eight hour day of walking you will have to walk eight and a half hours to expend the same amount of calories. Or you can increase the intensity and of course you’ll be getting so much work done while jogging.
It’s not a bad idea I just don’t think it’s practical. I could be wrong but I just don’t see a bunch of fat employees agreeing to walk on a treadmill all day at work. This is a link to the press release I received:
I would hate to see accidents like this one happening in the workplace
