Walking Treadmills

http://media.soundmedicine.org/segments/111013_5.mp3

As part of the “Help Yourself” series, Sandy Roob investigates the effects of treadmills for those working in a sedentary environment. Kate Shoup is an Indianapolis-based freelance writer and editor who doesn’t like to exercise. But after setting up a treadmill in her office, she walks up to eight and a half miles a day while writing, researching and Facebooking. Although the initial investment was hefty, Shoup says getting a built-in workout every day is a great investment in her overall health.
