The purpose of this study is to evaluate the health and psychological effects of performing low to moderate intensity physical activity throughout the work day. We will facilitate this physical activity be providing study participants with integrated computer workstation and recumbent exercise bike (Active Desk).
We hypothesize that, following five months of using Active Desk, participants will have reduced weight and waist circumference, and improved blood lipids and fasting glucose levels. We also hypothesize that participants will exhibit improved mood, positive affect, and quality of life.
