Fitness trainers, frustrated by clients that complain about not achieving the physical gains they desire, have a new tool in their arsenal: the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.
"One of the largest challenges facing fitness trainers centers on what their clients do after their session is over for the day," states TrekDesk CEO Steve Bordley. "It is difficult to achieve a high level of fitness in 30 minute sessions, 3 days a week. Because of this we have seen a sharp increase in interest from fitness trainers in the TrekDesk."
Ron Deangelo is the Director of Sports Performance at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (one of the most recognized experts in physical training, handling many NBA and NFL All-Stars in his illustrious 20 year career).
Interviewed by ABC News Pittsburgh (WTAE) regarding the TrekDesk, he cited the problems employees and athletes alike encounter sitting for prolonged periods each and every day, "they end up getting cemented into those positions, so the hip in particular is usually the problem." Ron noticed an immediate difference with a previously desk bound tri-athlete client using the TrekDesk: "As soon as we got him up and moving (with the TrekDesk) he made huge, huge strides."
"TrekDesk is very popular among trainers, tri-athletes and runners," stated Bordley. "They often grasp the concept quicker than the general population that health is dependent upon movement but you don't have to be an athlete to walk slowly at your desk all day to reap the same benefits."
Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized workstation that allows individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.
