I wanted to include another great addition to the future of health/fitness in the work/home office and classroom settings. This focus area will be highly successful as the need can be handled very easily by Walking, while you’re Standing, balanced with time Sitting. Really! The best part is it will impact one’s work productivity, one’s health, one’s motivation and much more in an incredibly positive ways. This will become as important as the development of the PC was to technology on our lives. We will work, balance health and fitness physically in the same moment in time.
Ron Wiener – CEO of Thermo Genisis Group wrote a recent article that will begin to paint the picture of the future – The Next Revolution in Office Fitness: Sit-Stand Conference Tables
Mr. Wiener’s purpose and vision is umbrella-ed in the ThermoGenisis Group with its motivation to reverse the effects of the “sitting disease” among millions of modern-day workers whose jobs entail many hours of sedentary inactivity, typically in front of a computer, in a scalable way – is in my professional opinion leading the way, in fact all the way. They are building on much more than the current offerings which includes the ground floor WorkWhileWalking and iMoveR. I anticipate as well that the ThermoGenisis Group is positioned and clearly on track to make many more contributions whether this is at work, home or even in classrooms of the future. As an active contributor & participant myself of the largest trends in Health & Fitness Industry over the past 40 years I am flat out excited at what is to come. A solution like this which will improve your health and fitness outside of the traditional methods will become a well timed life changing trend.
In conjunction with today’s traditional Corporate Wellness programs; which are made up of many vendors providing employees a multitude of avenues, with the hoped for Healthier Employee. I foresee that visiting sources such as WorkWhileWalking with reviews and resources to be a first stop in determining the next step. The ease at which one can Walk or Stand intermittently during an average 8 plus hour work day will be a trend that grows because of the positive employee results.
On a personal note: I am active with one of the largest wellness companies in the world as a spouse of an employee. They provide the same programming, support and benefits to me in order to reduce our family’s health insurance needs and cost. I remain hopeful with the programming offerings, yet know that to compartmentalize my work day in to Fitness, Nutrition and other programming comes with challenges. So of course it makes sense to add this new product area in to a partnership.
My conclusion: This emerging workplace product movement trend will be adopted quickly by these wellness vendors as the benefits reinforce their clients’ success. The office and classroom work day of the future will become an intuitive environment that envelops the human experience with technology for improving ones health and fitness right where you walk, stand and sit.
