On 2/7, Gym Source marketing director Tom Richard appeared on Miami’s ABC affiliate, WPLG Local News 10, to demonstrate the LifeSpan Fitness Treadmill Desk as part of the station’s ‘Making a Difference’ campaign. Local 10 teamed up with LifeSpan to auction off an incredible package to raise funds for the construction of Gratigny Plateau Park in Northwest Miami-Dade County. The Treadmill Desk, which is winning raves from consumers as an effective way to add exercise to the workday, was a key part of the package.
Tom showed correspondent Jen Herrera how easy it was to walk and work with the LifeSpan Treadmill Desk without breaking a sweat. “Here’s the best thing about this desk,” explains Tom, “You’re getting your work done. You’re doing what you normally do—and the next thing you know, you look down and you’ve gone two miles. You’re burning calories; you’re adding activity where you would normally be sitting—and there’s really nothing better than that. It’s a great, genius invention.”
Thanks to LifeSpan’s contribution and Tom’s showcasing of the Treadmill Desk on-air, the WPLG auction was a huge success. The treadmill desk package bidding closed on 2/8/13 with a winning bid of $2,472.00. What’s more, 100% of all funds raised go to the Parks Foundation of Florida’s Miami-Dade County to benefit Gratigny Plateau Park.
