A recent long term study of ca. 17,000 Canadians found that the more you sit still, the more you are at risk from dying from any cause. This study found a very “nice” linear relationship, that is even sitting still for a bit longer definitely increased participants’ risk of death.

Of course most of us don’t just sit for leisure, most of us have little choice because our work demands that we work at a computer or use a phone – we’re chained to our work stations.

This is where activeLife TrainerTM comes in. activeLife TrainerTMconverts your office from a 'death trap' to a wellness tool because it allows you to gently move your legs while being securely seated on your comfortable chair. With activeLife TrainerTM you can truly exercise at work to improve your wellness. The exercise is very low intensity – about doubling your calorie consumption vs. sitting still – this ensures that you do not sweat and do not become breathy while you use it. Unlike with treadmill desks, when you use your activeLife TrainerTM you are comfortably and safely seated so your hands and eyes are steady.

activeLife TrainerTM is the innovative way to increase wellness without taking you and your employees away from work duties.
