Hey all you 9 to 5-ers. You'll have to come up with another excuse for not working out besides "I don't have time." This new Walkstation allows you to walk while you work. The Mayo Clinic experimented with the vertical workstation and now it looks like it might be coming to the masses.
A treadmill attached to a desk? This could be a genius idea, aside from the fact that a lot of times I use exercise as a mental break from life and work. I suppose though if you can't fit a good workout in because your job takes up so much of your time and energy, that this could kill two birds with one stone.
Steelcase, the makers of this machine, feel that the Walkstation will encourage more daily movement, and burn more calories, even walking at only 1 mph. Not only could it help people lose weight, but exercising can reduce stress, increase productivity and improve focus. Maybe the $6,500 price tag would inspire you to walk more briskly.
What do you think? Would you be into walking using this treadmill desk?
