The truth about today's workplace

by ron bettin October 30, 2015

Research shows that humans currently spend 21 hours per day in sedentary activities such as sitting and sleeping. Our bodies are not meant for this level of inactivity. This inactive lifestyle, which is facilitated by most workplaces, comes with risks that include heart disease, obesity, diabetes and depression. Even regular exercise cannot offset the risks associated with long periods of sitting.
For employers, prolonged periods of physical inactivity that come with sitting at a desk for 8-10 hours per day can result in absenteeism, lost productivity, turnover and a high cost of benefits.

The solution starts here:

At FitneffTM our mission is to make it easy to incorporate regular movement into the workplace. We allow companies to enable employees to maintain productivity while standing or walking. By creating a healthier workplace, your company will realize greater overall benefits:

  • Increased mental capacity & focus
  • Improved job satisfaction
  • Improved memory
  • Greater productivity & creativity
  • Better time management
  • Euphoria!

FitneffTM offers a suite of products that can be easily incorporated into the workplace and are designed to allow regular low-impact movement to break the cycle of sitting. Some examples include:

by Heather Lielmanis March 08, 2017

Today, on International Women’s Day, I have chosen to profile Laurel Walzak, the female co-founder of Fitneff Inc. Laurel has been successful in so many areas of her career - first as a trailblazer in the sports business industry, then as an entrepreneur and most recently as an Assistant Professor of Sports Media at Ryerson University. 

Laurel also spends a great deal of her time and energy outside the office in efforts to advance the careers of young women who are making their start. I asked Laurel some important questions about the role of women in business, and the role that she plays in advocating for other women in her life.
