Today’s special guest is Rob Jacobs. Rob is a leader in the walking for health movement. Back in 1986, the former fitness instructor founded The Walking Center which pioneered the use of motorized treadmills to pace people, making walking an effective form of exercise.
Today, he is the co-founder of Unsit (http://www.unsit.com/) which is a company that created the first ever treadmill you can use under your standing desk at work.
His WALK-1 treadmill has even caught the attention of some celebrities such as former California first lady Maria Shriver, who is an ardent health advocate and former long-distance swimmer and Dancing With The Stars contestant, Diana Nyad.
During the interview, Rob and I discuss:
- How moving while you work and think benefits your creativity by 60% and enhances your productivity
- Why sitting too long has similar effects as smoking
- Why walking is a great way to problem solve
