Congratulations to Dustin from Guelph, ON, the winner of our ergonomic workstation prize package! We are thrilled to give this away and caught up with Dustin to learn more about him and how he will integrate this desk into his workflow.
Q: How did you find out about the Fitneff Contest?
I heard about the Fitneff Contest through a link shared on Facebook. I have been in the market for a stand-up desk, so I entered even though I usually don't enter contests.
Q: How do you plan to use your new sit-stand desk combination? Work? Home?
I will be using my new desk in my home office, and possibly even bring it into my day job (when my new office is ready!).
Q: Have you had experience using a standing desk before?
I have never had the pleasure of using a standing desk, but I have been looking at purchasing one.
Q: What do you think some of the benefits are to integrate movement into your life?
I am at my computer for nine hours a day, five days a week, and my back suffers tremendously. Utilizing the option to stand and still work will no doubt improve my level of discomfort, and subsequently my every day-to-day life.
Q: Anything else that you would like to share that our readers would be interested in knowing?
I work as a marketing manager for a large corporate auto dealer group in Southern Ontario, where I am at the forefront of new exciting campaigns. We are always trying new things, and my workload is forever increasing. This keeps me basically locked into my chair, even during lunchtime. When I get home to my three little girls I am often too sore to engage in play with them, and I hate that. I am only in my early thirties, but years of working in the Alberta Oilsands before switching careers has left my back vulnerable to injury.
Thanks for sharing Dustin and we can't wait to hear how this ergonomic desk set-up will improve your work flow.
The prize pack includes a WorkFit-TL Sit-Stand Converter along with a compatible monitor mount of the winner's choosing and an anti-fatigue mat. All of these items are from our Ergotron line, which contains a wide variety of active solutions for both the office and the classroom. If you were not the contest winner, we encourage you to take a look at the many products we offer in this line to help you make your health a priority. After all, height-adjustable desks and ergonomic set-ups have been shown to increase focus and circulation while decreasing back and neck strain.
Congratulations to Dustin again and thank you to everyone who participated in our contest. Check out our Ergotron products today!
