DIGITAL marketing worker Craig Freeman, 31, is from Reigate in the UK. Craig trialled a standing desk for just one week for an article in a national newspaper.
In just one week he saw benefits. His blood pressure was above normal before the test and within normal limits after.
This is what he said…“Having spent the past week standing in an office full of 20 other people sitting, I’ve actually really enjoyed it – despite the stick I’ve been getting!
“It felt most beneficial mid-morning and late afternoon. Those are the times I feel like I need a stretch when I’m sitting at a desk.
“I normally suffer from back pain but, after a week of standing, it’s felt better. I’ve felt more productive, too.
“It’s good to know I will be burning more calories if I keep standing at my desk.”
So there it is straight from a normal guy in an every day office. The benefits are there for everyone. Let’s spend less time in the chair and more time active working.
Standing desks work!
