We have seen people use the WalkTop Treadmill Desk in many different office settings, from lawyers to banks and CEOs to customer service support. But we had never seen a radio host use the WalkTop while on air live - until now!
Gord Gillies, morning host of News Talk 770, was tired of sitting for hours while on air. On Sept. 25, 2017, this typically sedentary radio studio was turned into a walk-friendly office space with the addition of the WalkTop Treadmill Desk. We wanted to give Gord a taste of what his life could be like if he got moving within his work day. Although being a morning radio host may seem like an exciting job, it requires a lot of sitting (as most office jobs do). Adding the WalkTop into this small space allowed Gord the chance to sit, stand or walk throughout his morning.
WalkTop’s CEO and inventor Ron Bettin got the chance to speak with Gord Gillies live on News Talk 770 to see how the WalkTop was working out. Watch the full interview below!
