Work, Pedal & Be Happy
You might have heard how bad sitting can be for your health.

Unfortunately, you might be spending most of your time sitting at work, and you might find it difficult to stay active throughout the workday.

What if there was a way to get some exercise in while you were at the office?

By providing workers with a portable pedaling device, researchers have discovered that inspiring office employees to be active at work could be as easy as pedaling a bike... and they don't even have to leave their desks.

Listen in as John Higgins, MD, discusses what a portable pedaling device is and how it can help you stay active throughout the work week.
