You train hard, but then sit in a chair for 9+ hours a day?

Don’t be an active couch potato:Stay Upright and Engaged

Serious and amateur athletes alike know that the key to a winning performance is taking care of your body. So why would you work out and then sit in a chair for 9+ hours a day?

Even if you get the recommended 30 minutes of daily physical activity, you’re still awake for another 1000 minutes, exercise-free. Leaning seats and standing desks promote Low Intensity Physical Activity (LIPA), which can transform those extra hours into productive time, allowing you to burn calories throughout the day and recover quicker from your workouts.

Whether you’re a triathlete, soccer star, or just a casual jogger, LIPA might just be the key to unlocking your next fitness goal, avoiding injury, and keeping those abs steely.


FOCAL FIT:Leaning Seats

Focal Upright’s leaning seats turn any standing height desk into an athlete’s dream. Reduce pressure on your lower back, remain upright and engaged, and stay active throughout the day.

You train hard. You’ve woken up at the crack of dawn, you’ve gone running in the cold, and you’ve said no to chocolate cake on more than one occasion.


It’s time you treat yourself to a work setup that cares about your body as much as you do.

Upright Lifestyle:Mark Sisson

Author and blogger, former distance runner, both triathlete and Ironman competitor, plus healthy mayo creator, Mark has been busy on his Focal Upright desk and Locus seat for over five years now.

“It’s the only desk I work at. Besides just being very comfortable and versatile, I notice that my hip mobility stays exceptional and my former back pains have disappeared because I never spend long times in a seated position.
I also work barefoot, standing on a pebbled mat, so just about everything in my work space is designed to enhance the creative experience. I actually look forward to ‘work’ sessions because I’m not confined to a sitting desk.”
