Thermogenesis Group Announces Launch of SitLess™ Office Fitness Store
New Flagship Demonstration Showroom for Standing Desks and Treadmill Desks Opening in Bellevue, WA
Bellevue, WA – September 16, 2016 – The grand opening of the new SitLess™ demonstration showroom in Bellevue is scheduled for September 20th, 2016. The new store is a second-generation concept evolved from three years of experience with the company’s WorkWhileWalking & WorkWhileStanding trialing center, which was located in a business park only blocks away from the new store’s high visibility location. Consistent with its former store, the new showroom affords visitors the opportunity to try out many models of sit-stand desks and tables, treadmill desks, and other office fitness gear—as well as a wide assortment of ergonomic accessories such as monitor arms, keyboard trays, and anti-fatigue mats.
“While the trialing center served us well as the destination store for customers throughout the Pacific Northwest, it did not have any retail visibility, and we really wanted to perfect our retail business model before rolling out SitLess stores nationally,” said Ron Wiener, CEO of parent company, Thermogenesis Group, Inc. He adds, “What we’ve created with our new showroom is a place where prospective buyers can see all the different workstation models available, customize to their office decor and available space, select all the options, and have their complete, personalized workstation shipped out of our factory in Grand Rapids within one week.”
A unique aspect of the SitLess store experience is that the staff members have deep expertise in what makes a good ergonomic workstation in this new age of working while not sitting. Andy Rosenbaum, CTO of Thermogenesis Group, explains, “By and large, the office furniture industry hasn’t really figured out the differences between what was taught in ergonomics class—which was all about sitting in front of a computer—and the special ergonomic requirements of standing or walking while working at your computer. That is what our highly-trained workplace wellness solutions specialists really bring to the table.”
The SitLess store also serves as a showroom for another Thermogenesis Group company, iMovR—maker of the broadest and most technologically-advanced line of office fitness products in the industry. Other leading vendors’ products offered at SitLess in addition to iMovR include Ergotron, Ergo Desktop, Right Angle, Focal Upright, Humanscale, Innovative Products, Ergo Tech, Matias, Kinesis, and Fitness Cubed, among others.
The new store is located at 14100 NE 20th St, Suite 203, Bellevue, WA 98007. Store hours are 10am to 6pm Mon-Thur and 10am to 5pm Fri. Other times are available by appointment only.
