Walking while you work?: The treadmill desk is a thing

treadmill desk

We’ve talked about standing desks before, and I totally see their benefit. But OMG check out this standing treadmill desk. I can’t tell if this is genius or ridiculous.

Part of me says, hey, all the benefits of a standing desk PLUS exercising while you work? That sounds rad. But then part of me says, I think I’d get extremely nauseous trying to type while walking.

So, anyone try this kind of setup before? Can you walk and work?

  1. I don’t have this specific setup but I’ve been using a treadmill desk for three years now and I love it! I’ve always thought better when moving and at low speeds – I never go above 1.5mph and usually not that fast – my typing is apparently unaffected. When the treadmill is working right I average between 30 and 40 miles/week, but my TreadDesk treadmill has been getting sicker and sicker so I’m getting a new LifeSpan setup. It’s quieter and nicer than the TreadDesk but wasn’t on the market when I bought my current one.

    The purpose designed ones aren’t cheap but I’ve decided my health, physical and mental, is worth the investment.

  2. I have the exercise bike version. I can’t work on it all day, but I spend about an hour or so using it while I check email and read for classes. I’m a grad student, so its really hard for me to find an hour everyday to do nothing but work out. This is a great way for me to get some exercise into my crazy schedule and I can already tell the difference from when I didn’t have it. Totally worth every cent.
