Sit Down, Start Walking

One of my favorite things to do here at FitEDM is search out the latest and greatest gear. When I saw the HOVR, I couldn't wait to share this with you. I have a friend who has a treadmill desk, and she loves it. But she complained that she could only use it while doing certain things. The HOVR seems the perfect non-intrusive device to incorporate onto your desk. 

HOVR comes with support and validation from both the Mayo Clinic and the University of Illinois at Chicago. After extensive testing, HOVR was certified NEAT. (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenisis) NEAT plays a major role in sustainable weight loss and improvement in overall health. The University of Illinois performed an independent study and confirmed that using HOVR burned significantly more calories than sitting. HOVR was found not to cause any mental distraction. 

HOVR BENEFITS

1. Burn Calories- Burn 17% or more calories that sitting

2. Unconscious Movement- HOVR produced motion is not distracting

3. Improved Circulation- Pump blood back into the body

4. Walking While Sitting- HOVR is the closest activity to walking while sitting

5. Cognitive Productivity- Stay mentally alert throughout the day

6. Activity Tracker- Track your activity with the mobile app

HOVR offers an optional device for tracking movement. Set goals for yourself and measure how far you've travelled, how many calories you've burned, and your daily progress. iOS, Android, and smartwatch versions will be available.

How HOVR works?

There is no wrong way to do it. Just get on your HOVR and move at your own pace. HOVR is made for everyone, and can be used while you work at the office, or while you watch TV at home. Keep active everywhere

Beyond NEAT activity, HOVR is also designed to provide moderate to vigorous brain boosting aerobic exercise. Mounting research is showing that "exercise is an effective, low cost intervention for improving both affective and cognitive health."
