It probably comes as no surprise that sitting too much is bad for your health, but did you know that half of Canadian women and just slightly fewer men (44 percent) are considered inactive?

That leaves them at risk for premature death, chronic disease and disability. And health experts are now saying that working out during your off hours isn't enough to let you reap the health rewards of an active lifestyle. Considering the sedentary nature of a typical office job, you'd better get moving while you're on the clock too: according to the Canadian Council for Health and Active Living at Work, regular moderate to vigorous activity and reducing sitting time are the key. So what's a cubicle-dweller to do? A potential solution is the TrekDesk ($400, amazon.com), a desk that fits over your own treadmill and allows you to walk slowly throughout the workday. This new product is being credited for everything from slowing the aging processes to helping users reduce stress and depression symptoms — and can even help you lose up to 70 lbs in a single year without restrictive dieting.
