We’ve all heard that sitting all day is the new cancer. And that explains why standing desks and treadmill desks have become so popular in the last couple of years. But what about those of you who don’t want to or can’t stand for an extended period of time? Should you just give up and make a reservation at the morgue? Don’t give up just yet. There is another way that you can add more movement to your otherwise sedentary day and burn up to 20% more calories while you’re at it.
I’m talking about the HOVR under the desk active-sitting device. HOVR is kind of like a swing set for your feet and comes in two styles. One that attaches to the bottom of your existing desk, and one that comes with its own frame that sits on the floor under your desk. Both styles provide a place for your feet to rest to provide a non-distracting way to move all day without even thinking about it.
