It’s no secret these days that sitting down at your desk all day makes you fat, lazy and unhealthy. Okay, that may be somewhat of an oversimplification, but that consistent sitting, day after day, does contribute towards lower productivity, back aches and pains, and absolutely no method for burning any fat or calories. And don’t fool yourself into thinking that those short walks to the coffee machine make any real difference.
For some of us, the thought of going to the gym after a long, hard day at work is pure hell, and waking up earlier is just completely out of the question. So, allow us to introduce the Hamster Wheel Standing Desk – the solution to all your problems.
A bunch of ingenious guys created this spinning wheel as a means to boost productivity and facilitate overall health while in the workplace. If you’re walking and working at the same time, you can come home and relax, guilt-free, knowing that you’ve actually contributed to your body’s well-being and you’ve probably gotten more work done than you did in your pre-hamster wheel days.
The instructions are up on the Instructables website, so if you want to create this sleek and elegant-looking workout wheel you actually can (although you’re probably going to need some help). Let this incredible creation serve as a reminder for the need to keep active, since most of us are spending our days sitting still on uncomfortable work chairs.
