Walking while I work has been a big step forward

By Logan Lafferty

I first came across the idea of a treadmill desk around seven years ago, when I covered the research of Prof James Levine, a Briton working at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He had done studies to show that weigh loss was not just a matter of diet and strenuous exercise but the calories we burn as we go about our lives, whether walking up stairs or strolling to chat with a work colleague rather than emailing them.
