Great investment in your health Review by East Coast Walker

I have been using this desk for 4 months. It is definitely part of my work day, and not banished as a coat rack like my elliptical. I have this in the office and got this model because I assumed I would share it with coworkers, but after a few weeks it was moved into my office because I use it so much. I never adjust the height so if I had known I was going to be the only user the manual one would have been fine, but the electric adjustable is a nice convenience, and people to want to try it out. I have reduced 9 hours of sitting to 2-3, every work day. When I am not walking, I am standing. I have reached a "plateau" where I am not losing weight but it really isn't for that purpose. It has gotten rid of the afternoon slump for sure and I sleep much better at night. I find that stretching is a MUST to avoid shin splints and back pain (or maybe just for us over 40), but worth it; my legs are in great shape. When I spend a week away on business I squirm in my chair because I am not used to sitting, I actually miss it. I can't get above 1.3 and do any real work (I can read at faster speeds, but not use the mouse well), and forget hand writing anything, but I have had no problem handling my work load on it, I spend about 4 hours a day actively walking. The first month I was out of breath on calls but now I am not. If you are in an office with others, warning, it is a very quiet machine, but once you are walking on it, the footfalls do make noise, so I would make sure you are not using it in a "quiet" area.
My knees don't hurt anymore Review by A. Scientist

I've had the TR1200-DT7 treadmill and desk for 10 months now. So far it's great and I love it. I don't sit on my tail at the office for 3 hours straight anymore and my feet and knees are a lot better thanks to all the extra walking. I use the pushbutton control enough that it was worth the extra 500 clams over the DT5. I'm only giving it 4 stars because the bluetooth quit working after a few months and the manufacturer didn't respond to my email about it. For me the bluetooth-based mileage tracking was fun but not important - might be different for someone else.
Excellent "Walking Office"! Review by ME

Great way to walk and work on computer, read, do homework, etc. Really like it! Table adjusts quickly and easily. Definitely worth the extra money to get the electronic adjustment, unless you are the only one who will EVER use it. Extra slow speed nice for a very slow "mosey" while typing/writing. Use the higher/faster speeds for reading.
Now if I could just get my husband to stop STANDING on it while he takes conference calls....
I love this desk and the idea behind it Review by Kinzer

I love this desk and the idea behind it. I knew I needed to do something as I spend a lot of time at my home office desk, sometimes not even getting out of the house all day. After a lot of research I choose this treadmill desk for the quality of the treadmill and the desk top working space.

One of my main concerns was would I use it and make it my permanent work station and part of my lifestyle. It's a lot of money to just sit around and take up space. Fortunately, I love it and since getting it set up nine days ago I've averaged 3.5 miles per day which is about 3 miles more per day exercise than what I was getting before. I have this near my sitting desk and share the monitors with it, use a wireless keyboard and mouse (I'm typing this at 1.8 miles per hour - 4.08 miles so far today, 636 calories burned per the desk top display).

I'm 57 years old, 5' 11" tall, 220 lbs. and barely squeeze into 38" waist pants (and have even broken down and bought some 40" pants. I still have some 36" stashed away and am looking forward to getting into them by summer. The real benefit is health. My doctor recommends walking 3 miles per day, but until I found out about the treadmill desk I just didn't see how it was going to be possible. I looked at this as an investment in my health, something many of us don't appreciate until we don't have it anymore.

I have the TR1200=DT7 which has the electric adjustment for up and down on the desktop height. Its a nice feature, but if you are going to be the only one using the desk, then you might be ok with the manual adjustment. Its a pretty substantial price difference. Either way, this desk works for its designed purpose; to be able to walk and work at the same time. I'm glad I have it. I intend to get up to 5 miles per day as I continue to acclimate myself to working at the desk and further build up strength and stamina. I love it! I have no regrets about purchasing this desk... the counter now reads 4.62 miles for the day, I'm not stopping until I get to five!
Assembly not quite as advertised. Review by R Foster
Value

Good: It comes in two boxes that are fairly lightweight (for treadmills) so it can be set up by one person but two are better. Great for hopping on and getting some work done. If you spend two hours throughout the day dealing with e-mails, it adds up. Ten minutes here, ten minutes there, and pretty soon you've got your 10,000 steps done.

Bad: Assembling the desk is NOT a one man job, and the people that came up with this assembly should be strung up by their toes. There is NO WAY a human being can slip their fingers into the tiny space underneath the desktop and actually connect the electronics. The only way to do it is to get two people to hold the desk up above the mechanism, and have a third person do the connections. So it takes three people to do that part. There is no way to set up bluetooth with your iPhone and if you want to use their app you have to PAY MONEY to have an account. No thank you. I've just spent over $2K on your product. On their website, this table shows that the only compatible app is the Active Trac and it's only compatible with Android (http://www.lifespanfitness.com/apps).
An amazing new aspect of my life, but even still has room for improvement, Review by larsfox

This is a great new tool in the kit for getting myself into better shape. My blood pressure has dropped, and I've lost 10 lbs in 4 weeks. I often don't even notice that I have walked 5 miles, it's that painless. I work very long days, and so needed something I could do •while working•, and this allows me to do that.

I would highly recommend it to anyone, to everyone. The instant height adjustability of the DT7 over the DT5 is worth the price difference, I change desk heights a few times every day.

Heck, I'd give it 6 stars if they could add in a few things:

1. Speed presets. As it is, you have to beep through .1 mph increments one at a time all the way up to whatever speed you want, and it gets old quick.

2. Resume speed. If you stop for a quick break, when you start up again it's at .5 mph, and again, its a one-at-a-time button poke back up to speed.

3. A much better app to go with it, or being able to direct it to whatever app you choose. Whoever designed the app needs to review the rest of the world and catch up! The machine has bluetooth built in, and so could report your stats directly to, well anything, but instead works only with Lifespan's "Fitness Club", which I find to be seriously lacking.

But, those items aside, I still give the DT7 5 stars, enthusiastically!
Office Treadmill Review by Jeffrey A. Beal

This is an excellent unit and I definitely recommend the adjustable desk being automatic and not manual. Quiet unit for walking while on conference calls and great for working on laptop. The unit was extremely easy to assemble; quite a pleasant surprise. Definitely worth purchasing together and not buying separate units as recommended in some of the reviews I have read. Amazon shipping and delivery was a plus as well.

I love this treadmill! Now I can do the family finances, read and send emails, shop online, set up homework for our kids and more while I get a few miles in at the same time! We had trouble with the two screws on the control panel during the set up. My husband, a super handy guy ended up having to drill them out and put in new screws! Even though it wouldn't have changed the results for us, (those screws were no way coming out by normal methods) I would suggest doing this step BEFORE attaching the desktop contrary to what the directions say. Just to make sure you can loosen them and save you from having to remove the desktop if you have the same trouble we did.
Changed my life! Review by Lprhoads

I am a lawyer and I spend at least 8-9 hours a day on email and writing/reviewing documents on my computer. A friend recommended this and after doing some research, I purchased this six weeks ago. I was worried about typing and reading- not at all a problem at all on either front. I started out during the first couple of days at about 1.6 mph and now am at 2 mph. I can read and type without any issues at all. It does not effect talking on the phone either. I am averaging about 5-7 miles per day without even thinking about it and feel so much better than when I was sitting all day. The electronic desk movement (up and down) is key- I wouldn't buy one without that feature. My only "complaint" is that the desk height controls are in the middle of the hand rest on the desk so occasionally I accidentally hit it but it's not a big deal. Just strange that they didn't put that feature out of the way with the other controls. I absolutely love this product and wish I'd been using it sooner!
Stiull getting used to it but this is a great thing! Review by NotSleepyInMontana

I don't remember where I came across the information on how bad for you it is to sit at a desk all day but I was especially struck by the fact that your body kind of shuts down so you don't even produce the same fat-burning enzymes as you would if you just stood up instead of sitting down. I decided that I needed to do something different, I work at a computer 8-10 hours a day. Luckily I own my company so trying out something like this was possible.

The LifeSpan treadmill and desk were easy to assemble, I did it myself in about an hour. All pieces and parts are heavy-duty and very solid. I had ordered a desk-mount computer stand at the same time, once I had that added on, I was ready to go. I have used it every day this past week. The treadmill counts your steps and minutes. I am working my way up to doing the whole day walking, the most I have done so far is three hours which makes you sorer than you would think. The other hours of the day, I turned off the treadmill and just stood. While walking, typing and generally concentrating came easily to me. Using the mouse is the hardest thing to get used to. I still turn off the treadmill, for instance, if I am working on a document where I have to cut and paste a lot because selection is hard. I was fit before I started this, could easily hike or walk for miles but I am stiff and sore at the end of the day on the treadmill and took Advil the first couple days, but each day is easier.

One of the oddest parts of this is getting to the end of the day having done all my exercise, what's left to do? =)

I am considering putting these desk treadmills in at my office so everyone can take advantage. I think there is some loss of productivity but the health benefits for everyone will outweigh that.
