Kelly Olhausen, a CCR graduate, was featured in an Arizona newspaper last month. The article is about how standing up at work can greatly improve your health. Kelly talks about her standing desk, why she needed it, and how it has improved her life.


We spend a lot of money every year trying to figure out how to get healthier. But the answer could be very simple, even when you're on the job. Just stand up.

 


If sitting is the new smoking, more and more people are looking for ways to stand up.
"My job requires me, not only to sit down at my job all day, but it also requires me to sit down for more hours at night transcribing my transcripts," said Kelly Olhausen.


Olhausen is a freelance court reporter. She bought a standing desk last year and now spends more of the day on her feet. "You actually find that you actually work harder and you get more work done than if you're sitting down all day."


That's one of the reasons why standing desks continue to grow in popularity in offices across the country. It's hard to argue with the health benefits.


"You just stand up and you burn an extra 20-50 calories all the time and just by standing up throughout the day, for a week, it's the equivalent of running a 10K," said Jason McCann, CEO of VARIDESK.
Trainers agree, because whether or not you can make it to the gym every day, the simple act of standing can make all the difference.


"Chances are if you're standing you're gonna be more apt to do something and move around than if you're sitting, you're probably going to stay there," said Seth Thurston, Owner & Master Trainer of Thurston Fitness.
Kelly Olhausen may be living proof, because after a few months with her standing desk, she now has more energy and less back pain. "It's good for your health," said Olhausen.

 

If you don't have a standing desk at work, here are three ways to get similar health benefits, courtesy of Thurston Fitness:


1.Sit on an exercise ball instead of a chair to help strengthen core and correct posture.


2.Standing calf raises increase circulation.


3.Lunges are a great way to burn fat and improve circulation in your legs.
