Women who exercise regularly spend as much time sitting as women who don't, according to a new Northwestern Medicine study. Emerging research shows that prolonged sitting has significant health consequences---and the new study suggests that being a dedicated exerciser doesn't prevent women from spending too much of their day sitting.  Good solution may be the treadmill desk - build your own for $39 (not including cost of treadmill).

Ever tried a treadmill desk or a standing desk?
