At Fitneff, we carefully select products that will allow you to stay productive while you integrate movement into workday. Many of us are faced with the same challenge every day – we need to get our work done, but studies continue to show that sedentary behaviour is bad for our health. At Fitneff, we believe that you can be active without sacrificing productivity.
The IntegrateTM Desk Pedals are extremely effective at allowing us to do just that. If you have to be seated, why not allow yourself to keep moving? This product allows us to make otherwise sedentary time healthier by working leg muscles, engaging core muscles and burning calories.
While seated, place the IntegrateTM Desk Pedals in front of you. Place the balls of your feet on the non-slip pedals and just start moving! The pedals work in both forward and reverse directions to target different muscle groups, and the adjustable tension controls allow you to increase or decrease resistance levels. The fluid motion is silent, and the monitor tracks strides per minute, total strides, use time, and calories burned.
The IntegrateTM Desk Pedals are designed to fit under your desk, so it is possible to use them while working on your computer. However, the truth is that they can be used in the office and in the home. Anytime you are seated, you can pedal!
We are extremely proud to share these examples of how IntegrateTM Desk Pedals have provided a solution to many different kinds of challenges:
So, if you have to be sitting, make the most of it with IntegrateTM Desk Pedals.
Today, on International Women’s Day, I have chosen to profile Laurel Walzak, the female co-founder of Fitneff Inc. Laurel has been successful in so many areas of her career - first as a trailblazer in the sports business industry, then as an entrepreneur and most recently as an Assistant Professor of Sports Media at Ryerson University.
Laurel also spends a great deal of her time and energy outside the office in efforts to advance the careers of young women who are making their start. I asked Laurel some important questions about the role of women in business, and the role that she plays in advocating for other women in her life.
You could say that Jim Wachtel occupies a front-row seat in the corporate health and wellness industry. And, because of his job as a health care cost-containment strategist, he spends a lot of time in that seat, whether it’s in his office, in his car, or on an airplane travelling for work.
Now, he's literally taking steps toward better health without compromising his productivity. Read how he's no longer sitting down on the job with the Walktop Treadmill desk by Fitneff.
