Trekdesk Treadmill Desk putting focus on waistlines over bottom lines

by Will Godwin 

Consider how many hours you spend sitting down and how unnatural that is for your body.

In the past, humans spent thousands of years walking up to 30 miles a day searching for food. Nowadays, if you work at a desk, you might easily spend five hours seated per day. Add in time commuting, eating, and on the sofa. Then throw in a long vacation trip by car or airplane or just relaxing at home in a lawn chair. Chances are good that you spend more big blocks of time sitting than any of your ancestors ever did, unless they rowed a Roman galley or carved heiroglyphs.
