We asked our retailer Gym Source why the LifeSpan Treadmill Desks are so important to their business. This was their response:
Here at Gym Source, we know that our business is to help our clients improve their physical fitness from any location: At home, the training studio, the gym, and more than ever—the workplace.
Much has been published recently about the long-term health hazards of sitting for prolonged periods at work. Not only does prolonged sitting been linked to a host of health problems like obesity, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome (excess body fat around the waist, high blood sugar, increased blood pressure, and abnormal cholesterol levels), and even cancer, but it’s also been demonstrated that people who spend four or more hours seated daily in front of had a 125% greater chance of chest pains (angina) or heart attacks.
That’s why we know the Treadmill Desk from LifeSpan is such an important technology to share in our showrooms. In this digital age of desks and computers, where extended sitting stints are part of everyday life for many, Treadmill Desk technology has the power to help our society transition toward healthier workplace habits.

Maybe it’s because the Treadmill Desk is the ideal combination of superior engineering and effective design. Maybe it’s because the product is an easy, affordable way to stay fit and stay productive simultaneously. Maybe because it’s because the Treadmill Desk is just plain cool.
The Treadmill Desk does take a little getting used to; you have to find the perfect desk height and the perfect speed and pace of the treadmill to allow for working and walking comfortably. But LifeSpan makes it easy with fully adjustable desks and a wide range of treadmill settings that are easy to configure.
