THE “Sit­ting Disease” is be­com­ing a global con­cern as our life­style has been mod­ernised with the lat­est tools and gad­gets that bring con­ve­nience in daily tasks to suit our hec­tic life­style.

The in­creas­ingly seden­tary life­style or “sit­ting disease” de­scribes an in­di­vid­ual who does not en­gage in enough phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity to be healthy.

Re­search has linked sit­ting for long pe­ri­ods of time with a num­ber of health risks, which in­cludes obe­sity, di­a­betes, high blood pres­sure, cancer and also cardiovascular dis­eases. It is no secret that mov­ing more helps us stay fit­ter and health­ier – the rec­om­mended 30 min­utes of ex­er­cise a day can boost our gen­eral health and well-be­ing.

To re­duce sit­ting too much es­pe­cially in the of­fice and at home, the new NordicTrack Deskmill will be the pre­ferred choice that lets you ex­er­cise while you work.

This US brand NordicTrack Deskmill is rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ily the best of both worlds to date, in­cor­po­rat­ing a work­ing desk and a tread­mill, mak­ing it a ver­sa­tile in­no­va­tive fit­ness equip­ment that al­lows in­di­vid­u­als to walk or jog in com­fort on its long cush­ioned deck while get­ting work done at the same time.

You can even fold it up and turn it into a stand­ing desk po­si­tion or a sit­ting desk po­si­tion for both home and of­fice set­ting.

Other in­no­va­tive fea­tures in­clude:

Smart ver­sa­tile de­sign

Easy tran­si­tion from sit­ting to run­ning – the revo­lu­tion­ary SpaceSaver de­sign al­lows Deskmill to fold up ver­ti­cally when you sim­ply want to sit or stand and then comes back down when you are ready to run. Power-ad­justable in­cline Deskmill’s 10% in­cline can be ad­justed dig­i­tally with the touch of a but­ton. Raise the in­cline to ac­ti­vate spe­cific mus­cle groups and burn more calo­ries.

Ad­justable desk height

Find the per­fect desk­top height for you – the desk­top is ad­justable be­tween 26 and 42 inches to ac­com­mo­date mul­ti­ple user heights for sit­ting, stand­ing, walk­ing or run­ning.

Easy reach desk­top con­trols An easy-to-read LCD con­sole dis­play is built right into the desk­top. Three read­outs dis­play your time, dis­tance, calo­ries per hour, in­cline and speed. Sim­ple con­trols ad­just your speed and in­cline on a clear, con­cise dis­play so you can eas­ily mon­i­tor your progress.

Classy ma­hogany wood grain desk­top

Dura­bil­ity and aes­thet­ics live on the 40-inch by 18-inch, sta­ble desk­top work sur­face.

A one-inch flat, solid com­pos­ite desk­top is pro­tected with at­trac­tive ma­hogany wood grain lam­i­nate for a sur­face that looks great and per­forms beau­ti­fully.
