You Doc’s Dr. Michael Roizen Urging Americans to Move More - Does it Daily from His TrekDesk Treadmill Desk
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 24, 2011
In a bold attempt to move America, Dr. Michael Roizen has recently urged America to start exercising more or risk dire health consequences that will threaten its economic livelihood. The Chief Wellness Officer of the Cleveland Clinic is now stressing the economic impact of our current health crisis. Dr. Roizen walks the talk daily, walking while working using a TrekDesk Treadmill Desk both at the Cleveland Clinic and at home.
Dr. Roizen’s message warns the high cost of health care is already hampering America’s corporate competitiveness and the rate of chronic disease in this country will make us economically uncompetitive unless common sense health changes are adopted encouraging more movement during the day.
“We totally agree with Dr. Roizen’s message and have been mounting a Movement Revolution over the last year to educate more Americans about the importance of walking toward overall health,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desks. “We know of many high profile health professionals using the TrekDesk including Dr. Roizen and are very pleased that he practices what he preaches, it is a great example. The challenge now is getting corporate America to understand the need to change the work environment to integrate more employee movement.” (Link to photo of Dr. Roizen on his TrekDesk Treadmill Desk).
Dr. Roizen is a big fan of the treadmill desk concept and chose the TrekDesk because of its affordability and the ability to walk faster than other models. “Love the chance to walk at breaks and do conference calls while walking with my TrekDesk Treadmill desk…—really an easy way to get healthy and try to lose 10 (lbs) while also trying to quit diet sodas.”
Designed to fit any existing treadmill, TrekDesk is an affordable, full sized workstation allowing individuals the opportunity to gain the necessary amount of exercise daily to maintain health, prevent disease, strengthen muscles, boost mood and productivity, without requiring additional time during the day or extra motivation.
