Fitneff’s WalkTop treadmill desk got plenty of attention when we set the stage May 13-14 in the pristine lobby of one of Calgary’s highest profile buildings – Eighth Avenue Place.
The two day “Give the WalkTop a Try” event engaged hundreds of curious onlookers and busy professionals who tried it for themselves, and attracted the attention of the city’s media including the Calgary Herald and its Financial Post edition, CTV, CBC, GlobalTV, and ShawTV. We were also proud to make Avenue Magazine’s “5 Great Things that Happened in YYC this Week” list.
As a North American hot spot for entrepreneurialism, commerce, and the largest concentration of head offices and small businesses per capita in Canada – we wanted to get straight to the point and ask Calgary: “Can you truly work at a high level – and walk at the same time?”
For health and well being, getting those 10,000 steps a day, improving creative thinking and performance – the resounding answer was YES!

Spring if finally upon us! With the opening of the windows and doors, along with sunshine and fresh air, we are greeted with so many new opportunities to get active that don’t seem so apparent during the winter months. Getting outdoors takes much less preparation and effort. Being outdoors is pleasant and easy (at least for those of us who prefer warmer weather). The benefits of being active in spring go beyond just feeling good and being healthy, and might not be what you expect. Let’s take a look.
I had the honour of speaking with Olive Myhre the day after her 105th birthday. Olive has lived through events that most of us only read about in history books, including two World Wars, the introduction of the automobile, the invention of the computer, and man’s first steps on the moon. I was able to learn about her life and her perspective on health and happiness. Here is our interview.
