ActiveLifeTrainer - Prof. Christoph Leonhard, Ph.D. ABPP

Christoph Leonhard, Ph.D. ABPP 

is professor of clinical psychology specializing in behavioral medicine at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, LA. After five years as an instructor at Harvard Medical School he accepted a professorship in Chicago where he has been researching and developing seated elliptical exercise machines to help sedentary office workers to be active at work. The main aspects of his developments are protected by international patents including in the US, China, and Germany.

The efficacy of the elliptical exercise machines developed by Dr. Leonhard, such as activeLife Trainer™, has been proven in several independent scientific studies at well known universities and research institutes in Germany, the US, and the Netherlands. Please find a reference list below:
