A recent study 1 from Berkely shows that people who walk for excercise get the same health benefits in terms of blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease as people who run IF they burn the same amount of calories - i.e. you have to walk longer to get the same health benefit because running burns calories quicker than walking.

This provides additional evidence that low intensity physical activity, such as using activeLife Trainer™, is beneficial especially if done for extended periods of time - like the time you spend sitting at your desk ... or sitting at home!
