SIT ON IT? No more, Fonzie!

In the morning we sit at our breakfast table. We drive to work and sit in a car, bus or train. Then we sit eight hours a day at our desk. Drive home and sit at the dinner table. In the evening the couch is our seat. In short: we sit out a large part of our lives… which is bad for our health. We have to move more and sit less.

What? Sit on it? No more, Fonz! We have to start moving again, like our ancestors did. And I have found a solution, even two:

Take a look at the Treadmill Desk:

And the We Bike Desk:

Isn’t this something?

Here’s the Treadmill Desk in action:


Can you see yourself sitting walking and biking at your desk? The construction doesn’t seem to be that hard to assemble. No more dieting or expensive fitness subscriptions, no. We work, we move. With the We Bike, we even produce energy.

  1. I love the idea… in my career I was more on my feet than my derriere and it has stood me in good stead… I love the idea… and one can create our own electricity from it as well.??

  2. Just sitting around is certainly what most moderns do a lot of.
    They should link those up to generators and get the workers to produce their own electricity for lights, computers and aircon.

    1. Het ziet komisch uit, maar niet lachwekkend. Het idee vind ik zelfs prima, Knutselsmurf. Jij hebt het al in praktijk gebracht las ik, staand achter je PC. Krijg je geen last van je rug?
      Ik zit zelf met zware rugklachten en de enige houding waarin ik geen pijn heb, is zittend. Maar de hele dag zitten is niet gezond. Vandaar mijn interesse in deze materie.

      1. Ik doe het nog steeds; die PC is niet meer teruggegaan naar het bureau. Ik had de eerste paar dagen spierpijn, maar dat ging over. Die loopband op de plaatjes is natuurlijk onzin. Laatst was ik bij de beheerder van OBA ( Ina ) en toen pas viel het me op hoe erg ik gewend ben geraakt aan staan. Ik kon geen toets vinden en de muis vond ik ook onhandig.
