New "Office-On-The-Move" Treadmill desk

The Recreational Sports & Fitness Center has a new walking treadmill desk called "Office-On-The-Move"! Recently, a news brief on CBS This Morning was titled: "Sitting as unhealthy as smoking, health nonprofit says". Stating that sitting for hours raises your risk of heart disease. The new Office-On-The-Move is a great way to get up and move! New evidence from the American Heart Association emphasizes movement over time is very important and to get up every 30 minutes to move around for at least 5 minutes. Bring your work and get on this new treadmill desk - equipped with a Mac computer and workspace you can type, check email, search the internet, do conference calls, read, and study. Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center patrons are welcome to come try it out; reservations call 994-5500.
