The Treadmill Desk

I have recently had the distinct opportunity to provide a service for a new manufacturer of the much-touted treadmill desk. While LifeSpan has dominated this technology, other companies have tried hard to compete. I have been increasingly amazed that major commercial manufacturers ignore this new technology. I will not divulge the company that I did service for, but my sentiments remain. The old saying goes that a person can not walk and chew gum at the same time...but they can walk on a treadmill, no matter the max speed, and complete work? I am an experienced athlete. I walked on this treadmill desk for a few minutes and concentrated on simply hanging on, but there are no handles!! Bottom line is that if something goes wrong, the user falls and generates a work comp claim that would ordinarily not be present. While I agree that sedentary works hurts, adding a dimension that some people simply aren't capable of can hurt them even more. And, insurance companies are always looking for reasons to deny claims. This gives them a perfect reason. My bottom line? Give your employees times to work out at a gym or company gym. Most corporations I have dealt with have either incorporated a company gym, where users are allocated time to workout, or, are given credit for outside gym use. A desk where an employee is expected to take calls, etc and be able to perform motor skills is a recipe for disaster. 

The new ATP

ATP is announcing a change to the company logo. Unfortunately, we have become confused with the ATF (alcohol, tobacco and firearms) of the US government. While we consider our business to be very important, we can not compare ourselves to a government agency. Welcome to the new ATP!

     Wow, where do I begin with this one? Let's start with my education. I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Kinesiology-Exercise Science from California State University, Long Beach. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be involved in the fitness industry. I have much life experience from very physical jobs.Why have I given you my background here? I am not just some Joe Schmoe offering mindless commentary. I do a lot of research in my field to keep abreast of ideas and innovations.
