I love the new deskReview by Mary Anthony Merchant, JD PhD
I love the new desk and have incorporated it into my work day. It certainly
has raised a lot of questions from people and many people want access to
Currently I am probably walking about 1-2 miles a day. This is worth promoting!
It's Great!Review by Zell Lewis
I purchased the Lifespan treadmill workstation as part of a New Year’s resolution to move more. I’m a 25 year corporate travel agent and doing what I love I spend a lot of time in the office.
This has brought a brand new outlook at work. I have more energy and clarity during the day. It’s great! In a month’s time I’ve clocked over 100 miles.
Just this week I placed the unit on a ¾” sheet of composite board to give it a little more stabilization. I have it upstairs in my home office which is carpeted. This way I can clean and lubricate it without worry of the carpet.
I recommend it anyone who’s looking to mix it up while they work.
Goodbye, bad habits.Review by Heidi Worth, M.D.
My husband, Ross Dickstein, and I purchased this treadmill desk for our personal use in our shared medical office. We put it against a big window looking out to the mountains and walk on it between patients, while we read charts or make notes. It is a great way to keep moving through the day--very smooth to walk on and the desk is the right size for a few personal effects and for us to switch lap tops when the other person is in the mood to walk. I am happy to be part of this web-site. As doctors, we have been keeping up on the literature about sedentary office workers and worried that we would be setting a bad example for our own patients as well as allowing our own aging bodies to fall into the same bad habits we preach against.
We are glad to be part of this movement! We really wish more desk-workers would learn about this simple and fun change to their day-to-day routine.
Good medicine!Review by Jonathan Cluett
As an orthopedic surgeon, I see every day the repercussions of a sedentary lifestyle, weight control problems, and lack of physical conditioning. Busy schedules can be to blame, but simply changing the way you manage your day can be the solution. Moving more at work can help manage the imbalance of physical activity and work schedules. I don't sweat more. I can type and read without problems. I am not short of breath on the phone. And most importantly, I have more energy at work.
Yes, I do get chuckles from people who see the desk. The laughs are quickly followed by questions. And the questions are almost always followed by requests to give it a try. My office staff is lining up to use my desk when I am at the hospital!
Changed my life...Review by TitanFlyer
- I have been fighting the battle of the bulge my entire adult life, and tried everything with little success. This wasn't because nothing worked, but I just simply gave up as I get bored or I get tied up at work. I have a desk job where I work from home unless on the road. I needed a complete change of thinking, one where I was working out WHILE doing what I had to do. The treadmill desk seemed perfect so I purchased the 1200DT from Lifespan as it seemed like the best setup for the money (not into building something myself). I was right, this thing is solid a rock and works exactly (if not better) than described. I can't comment on support as I haven't needed any, which in my opinion is a comment on its own. Thanks LifeSpan, this has changed the way I work and actually 3 of my friends have purchased them after hearing about it or seeing mine. Well worth the money and the commitment.
