The prototype works better then anticipated.  We can now raise the bridge (desk) out of the way to allow the tread part to raise up for cleaning etc.

 

Table Up, and Treadmill Up

Computer Desk Over Treadmill Version 2.0

We’ve been using the ComputerDeskOverTreadmill for over a year now.  It does what it is suppose to do, but there are certain things about it that we find annoying.  I have proposed another concept which mounts the keyboard on a shelf (desk) that allows movement of the keyboard away from the treadmill control console.

This is to allow the user access to the treadmill control console when use of the keyboard is not necessary. This also allows the treadmill’s tread to be folded up to save space during cleaning and storage.

I’ve already completed the prototype and am now testing it.  I will get some photos and video to show you details of one neat setup.

The ComputerDeskOverTreadmill is a Lifestyle change, it’s about blending and disguising exercise into your life while doing the activities and entertainment that you love to do while saving time.  If you are an experienced fitness buff, and you try the ComputerDeskOverTreadmill.  Exercise is no longer a separate commitment. You can combine exercise, entertainment, and/or office work and get three times as much done.

I go on the ComputerDeskOverTreadmill sometimes over 2 or 3 hours if I am watching a really good movie that I am really engrossed in it. This is in addition to the  other things which take  additional time. I spend an hour or two answering or communicating e-mail. And as I wrote before I also spend time with the computer games.

I probably should tell you that my ComputerDeskOverTreadmill is associated with a specific computer. That is I have only one treadmill and other computers without treadmills.

While watching a TV commercial for a piece of exercise equipment, one of the participants in the commercial exclaimed the she could burn 800 calories in 30 minutes while using the machine. Tom who was in the room with me exclaimed, “So what? I can eat 1,000 calories in 10 minutes!

Long Ago And Far Away

It was Long Ago And Far Away in a country on the other side of the planet “Earth” that a nutrition concept was reaffirmed.

Physical activity or exercise is not a governing or absolute factor in weight control. As Tom puts it, “Eating is.”

Tom walked into the Company Headquarters’. There he met two gentlemen that were in the process of putting together a detached service team. They outlined what the team was up to and invited him join.  Four or five months of playing football full time and still getting paid sounded like a fun thing.

The work was strenuous and intense getting into shape and learning all the plays. Each day in the morning the team was given a break and Tom would go to a coffee shop nearby and eat some Danish rolls and drink a cup of coffee. It was a good life. That is until Tom and his teammates noticed that Tom’s spare tire was getting bigger and bigger.  Here Tom was doing all of this physical activity training with the football team and he was gaining weight. The coach noticed the weight gain and rearranged Tom schedule so he could not ever get to the coffee shop again.

About a week later (while scrimmaging) a teammate fell against Tom’s leg. The doctor said that it was a “spiral lateral fracture of the tibia and fibula.” This put Tom into the hospital for about six months. This was an interesting experience because it involved lying around in bed with no physical activity. Tom lost about 50 pounds while going from 240 to 190 pounds. Nevertheless Tom still devoured everything he could get his fork into but they didn’t give him anything. There was no way he could get to where there be food.

The answer to WHY may or may not be found at  http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/calories/index.html .

The reason I say, may or may not, is because I’m suggesting that the number of calories you consume is related to your current weight.
