"Prolonged sitting is associated with blood-glucose issues and increased risk of heart disease. Working standing up will increase your heart rate by an average of 10 beats a minute, the University of Chester has found. Do that three hours a day , five days a week for a year , and, in terms of calories burnt , that's the equivalent of running 10 marathons". Sunday Times, 12 Jan, 2014
Why sit and gain weight when you can stand and stay fit?
The Office Fitness Fixed Height Standing Desk; the revolution in office furniture and a solution to end the harmfulness of all-day sitting.
Many studies show that being sedentary for extended periods is damaging for a number of reasons; not least early death (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-18767278). Getting to your feet and standing typically raises the calories burned per hour ( for a 1501b person) from 60 to over 100. Introduce a balance dome or stepper and you are looking at nearer 200 calories per hour. Continued for 2-3 hours a day and you will burn way in excess of anything that can be achieved in the weekly three x 40 minute gym sessions. The Office Fitness Fixed Height Standing Desk is perfectly suited to both home and work offices and for stand up meetings.
