About Alan

About AlanHi there and thank you for visiting. My name is Alan. I live in Cleveland, OH. The best way to get to know me is to read my personal mission.

I am dedicated to being the best person I can be through continuous learning and sharing my findings with those who have similar interests. What good is knowledge if it is not shared to help each other?

So why a community about standing desks?

Because I have witnessed agonizing back pain, the burden of poor posture, and other health issues aggravated by a sedentary lifestyle and want to help people live happily and free of pain.

My father has a bad back since his teenage years, and I have always been looking for ways to avoid developing one. I started out by using an inversion table, and I love it. The first time I saw someone using a standing desk I thought to myself “that has to be much healthier than sitting on your rump all day long.”

Soon after, I began researching to see if there are proven benefits from standing while you work. After becoming convinced that sitting all day is not a healthy practice, I converted my desk into a stand-up desk, and I could not be happier.

…Did you know you can find a cheap standing desk converter and build yourself a standing desk in 15-20 minutes? I was shocked to find such a useful and sturdy desk kit on the cheap. It is cardboard and not the sexiest desk kit out there, but the pieces are cut and interlock cleverly, so it is very rigid and highly functional. The color is also pleasant.

I am 5’11” and bought the large size. It is at perfect eye level for me. They also offer small and medium sizes. I strongly recommend watching the assembly videos rather than using the written instructions. It will make things easier and quicker for you.

All you need to do is pick one up for $15-25 bucks, depending on the size you choose at Spark by Ergodriven – The Perfect “Start Standing Now” Standing Desk.
