Get movin’!

Mayo Clinic has developed a treadmill desk. I’m not kidding.  Mayo tested the desk and found that by making people creep along at 1 mph while working they could increase the number of calories burned by about 100 per hour.

Someone could conceivably lose 66 pounds if they worked at the desk for a year. That’s a big if, I’m afraid.
Imagine how much weight someone could lose at 10 mph.

One thought on “Get movin’!”

  1. Hello from atop my Treadmill,

    I have a blog devoted entirely to the “Treadmill Desk”. It’s designed to guide users in the design, construction and operation of their Treadmill Desks.

    I don’t sit at my “normal” desk anymore unless I have to, like when I’m doing my tax return and there’s lots of papers.

    Here’s the URL:

    Don’t miss the movies and slide shows!
