The Holidays are over soon and you’ll get back in the office looking bloated. Come on, you know you are. But that’s ok, because it’ll be the new year and you’ll be full of motivation, determined to lose that gut. But how can you? You spend your entire day at work, sitting in front a desk, not burning any calories. Send your boss this article and explain just how much more productive the office would be if you all had this. It’s called the Steelcase Walkstation and is a workstation that happens to be a treadmill. For one, you’d cost your company less in health insurance. Also, after a while you’d have more energy since there’d be less of you to carry around. Heck, we don’t need to sell you on the benefits of being able to move all day vs. sitting. The Walkstation has a top speed of 2mph and is very silent, as it should in an office. One of the listed features is actually a little funny: “Motor designed to withstand the rigors of slow speeds and possible higher weights for long periods of use (our emphasis).”
Now… they aren’t cheap. $4,400 and up, depending on the sort of accessories you buy with them, such as the movable monitor arm, or other organizational elements; it is an office workstation after all.
