Many of us have a home office that we use to accomplish a large portion of our work. Home offices are a great set-up that allow more flexibility and personalization in design, but still typically promote mostly sedentary behaviour.
With a WalkTop Treadmill Desk, you can take your home office to the next level and make health and wellness a priority in your home environment. Check out our top five reasons why you should have a WalkTop in the home:
1) Decreases Sedentary Time
Okay, so this one is fairly straightforward. As shown through a large body of research, extended periods of sedentary behaviour can lead to some serious health risks, including cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. If you’re spending the day working from home, or even just spending a few hours of your evening working overtime, the WalkTop gives you the option to walk while you work. Instead of feeling sluggish and lazy, you can increase your step count and put health first.
2) Puts Your Old Treadmill Back to Good Use
Lots of us know the story: you bought a spiffy new treadmill thinking you would get all kinds of use out of it and get into great shape, but then it just ended up sitting in your basement collecting dust because you never seemed to have time for it. Sound familiar? With the WalkTop, you can transform that beautiful treadmill into something useful again! Rather than just aging out of sight, your treadmill can become a fully functional workspace and have new life once again.
3) Increases Productivity
Sometimes sitting at a desk all day (particularly when you’re at home surrounded by distractions) can make it difficult to focus and be productive. The movement encouraged through the use of the WalkTop allows you to channel excess energy out in an efficient way, making it easier to focus on the task at hand. Plus, rather than having to complete your work and your workout separately, now you can do them at the same time!
4) Useful for a Variety of Activities
The home is a place where you have the luxury of enjoying a variety of your favourite leisure activities, like reading, writing, drawing or watching Netflix. While all of these are great pastimes, they’re also all unfortunately sedentary, and after a long day of sitting at the office the last thing you want to do is sit for a few hours more. The WalkTop allows you to enjoy these hobbies to the fullest while getting in valuable steps at the same time, pushing you closer to that coveted 10,000-step mark.
5) Allows Greater Flexibility in your Work Flow
Having a WalkTop in the home adds another workstation to your repertoire, making it that much easier to change positions throughout your day. This means that you have a lot more flexibility in your work flow. If you feel like walking and working, you can do that. If you feel like standing and working, you can do that too simply by bringing the treadmill to a stop. And of course, if you want to take a turn sitting, your traditional desk is there for that too. Work the way that you want to!
