The Office Fitness Walking Treadmill designed to be used for steady and effective indoor walking workout using a quiet and efficient electric motor that offers a marked contrast to cheaper non-motorised models. In an office setting, treadmill usage as seen as increasingly effective alternative to being sedentary when combined with either a standing desk ( see Office Fitness Sit-Stand Electric Desk) or Laptop Stand. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19910888
Walking rather than prolonged sitting offers significant health benefits; considerable weight loss ( 200kCals/hr at 4mph), disease prevention, cardiovascular improvements. Studies show that walking can increase blood flow to the brain, helping improve your memory by as much as 15 percent in a six-month period. At the same time, walking on a treadmill promotes healthy restorative sleep patterns, which in turn decreases your stress levels.
Multi-function display ( Speed, Time, Distance and Calories Burned). The Office Fitness Treadmill is a purpose-built walking treadmill ( not a running machine), maximum speed 6mph which equates to a brisk walk requiring full arm swing. As with all Office Fitness products, comes with one year warranty
Unlike conversions of standard treadmills from many rivals, the Office Fitness desk walker is the only purpose-built compact walking machines designed specifically for office environments
The revised Office Walker designed for steady indoor walking now uses a new quieter and more efficient electric motor. Form factor size ideally suited to walking but compact enough to be pushed under the desk when not in use. No overhang means no trip hazard which is a key factor if the treadmill is permanently under your desk. The space-saving 38cm runway offers the more practical option of a chair alongside offering variation between sitting, standing and walking. For most people, this is more than wide enough for the natural walking gait but just to be sure, we advise marking out two strips of tape, 38cm apart and observing whether the lines are crossed when walking and looking ahead.
Studies have shown that exercise routines become habits when the equipment is to hand and convenient to use. Unlike longer converted running treadmills which extend beyond the desk, the Office Walker allows for both a chair and treadmill side by side ensuring that it is always ready for use at a moment's notice.
