We have a few treadmill desks on display in our showroom. People tend to freak out when they see them. “You mean you’re supposed to run while you work? How do you do that?” they ask. That’s a common question we get, and the answer usually is: Our treadmill desks aren’t really made for running at your desk; they’re designed to keep you up and active – walking at a comfortable pace that keeps your heart rate steady and helps burn calories. You can set the speed at a more brisk pace for more intense workouts as well.
Treadmill desks are catching on. We’re selling more than ever this year as more and more studies show that sitting all day is very bad for your health. Using a sit-stand adjustable height desk is a great way to combat the harmful effects of sitting, and a treadmill desk is one of our best solutions to keep you healthy while you work.
And, like I said, treadmill desks are really catching on. Actress-writer-brilliant and geeky web celeb Felicia Day, who spends a lot of time working at a computer, uses one every day.
In an interview with Lifehacker, Day calls her treadmill desk “literally the best purchase I’ve ever made.”
After using a treadmill desk for several weeks in our office, it’s easy to see why Day, who created the web series ‘The Guild,’ loves using one so much. If you spend all day at your computer, there’s really no better way to stay active, boost your energy and burn calories all at the same time. Treadmill desks offer a great way to stay healthy while you’re stuck at your desk all day.
We offer a few different treadmill desks: The Uplift Treadmill Desk, Lifespan Treadmill Desk TR1200-DT, and the Steelcase Walkstation (or the Sit-to-Walkstation). You can also order the Uplift Treadmill or the LifeSpan Treadmill on their own if you already have an adjustable height desk.
Combat obesity, poor circulation and heart disease and get more out of your work day with one of our ergonomist-tested treadmill desks. Call us at 800-531-3746 to discuss the benefits of a treadmill desk and find the one that’s right for you. You can also email us or join us in live chat.
