After consuming a healthy and balanced morning meal and sipping back your coffee, you should feel stimulated enough for the day ahead. So after the commute you make your way to your work desk to take charge of the days business demands. But here is the problem. The chair. It can be the cause of a lot of your health and posture problems. How come? Because you just sit there all day. Being healthy is about diet, movement, and mental state. Take your day back and start using a standing desk.
You’ve been sitting eating your breakfast that morning (if you had the time). Then you go from walking to the car, to sitting again. Then you arrive at work, once more, to sit again. We are meant to be active, and sitting is the cause of most of our back pain. It makes our shoulders hunch forward, our backs round and destroys our posture. Bad posture is responsible for imbalances in the body. Over time the body responds by tightening up our muscles and we lose the elasticity in our psoas, which destroys our spinal mobility. No wonder people in the West are always at the pysio, chiropractor or off sick.
Poor posture and a loss in hip and back mobility ironically also leads to fat storage around the mid riff. That’s why people who do an active honest days work (manual labor) and don’t sit a lot during the day feel more energetic. So what is the solution. Stand all day? Ditch your job and revert to manual labor? This is not practical if you need to work at a desk. But there is a revolutionary way of now working out at your desk as you work. Introducing the Rebel 1000 Treadmill Desk.
How The Rebel 1000 Treadmill Desk Can Help
This office treadmill is placed under a standing-height workdesk. The main control console rests neatly on your top of your working desk. Once you start it up it will gently increase speed from a barely noticeable .5 mph and increase it in tiny increments up to 2mph. The top speed is restricted so you don’t come a cropper during a conference or whilst running a spreadsheet. This walking treadmill operates smoothly and it’s compact enough to ensure it assimilates neatly within your workplace.

It weighs 88 pounds by the treadmill has transport wheels underneath it that aid in maneuvering the unit around with ease. The treadmill can accommodate users up to a maximum weight capability of 250 pounds. This nimble exercise tool, was built to fit into today’s busy office complex environments.

Are Under Treadmill Desks Safe?
The top limited to 2mph so if you have balance issues you will not be going at a frenetic pace.

The idea of a treadmill desk is fantastic in principle. Anything that gets you up out of sitting for hours on end is going to be a great asset for your back, even if you only use it for an hour per day. It also depends on the nature of your job. If you have to run around constantly and aren’t specifically tied to a desk you might not get the benefit.
The Rebel 1000 is a fantastic product, it’s sleek, the control console measures the size of a small envelope (8 x 3 inches), so it won’t clog up your desk space. The motor is also good and it is also safe. You can also take a 30 day trial if you like the idea but don’t know if it will suit your office environment.
