At Fitneff, our purpose is to enable people to stay active while doing things that might otherwise require them to be sedentary. The work day is a time when many people are required to be seated at their desks for long periods of time. Imagine, after a long day of sitting at the office, you had to go home each evening and sit down again to study for hours.
This was the case for Mike Byrom of Calgary, AB. Happily, Mike found a solution for this conundrum. He heard about the WalkTopTM Treadmill Desk, which is designed to fit onto any treadmill. He is now able to walk while he works at home in the evenings. Here is his story!
Why did you purchase a WalkTopTM Treadmill Desk?
I'm doing my MBA. I didn't want to to sit at a desk for an additional three hours in the evening after a full day at work. Instead, I do most of my studies on my WalkTop. I was worried I would gain weight while doing my studies. Fortunately I haven't.
Have you realized any benefits since you started using the WalkTop?
I love the product. I use it an average of 4 days per week during semesters. I spend an average of 2 hours per day walking while working during the week, and up to 5 hours per day on the weekend.
What specific feature do you like the most about the WalkTop?
It is so easy to put on, and to take off of the treadmill. I have it on so that I can walk while I'm studying, and my wife finds it easy to remove when she uses the treadmill for a run.
Would you recommend this product to others? Why?
Yes! It has allowed me to stay active during a busy time in my life.
Thank you Mike for sharing your story!

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.
