TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk
- Product Review (submitted on July 1, 2013):
I LOVE my treadmill desk. I tell everyone about it. I had been thinking about something like this for several years. Did a bunch of research, figured out how it would fit in my tiny home office and finally decided on the LifeSpan. I work on average 10 hours a day and many days more. I work weekdays and weekends. Always, found it hard to make the time for a little exercise.
I usually walk my dog about 2 – 2.5 miles in the morning, then hop on my treadmill desk for about 3 - 4 hours. I do mostly computer/phone work and I’m averaging about 2.8 miles per hour, and still being able to type/talk with no problems. When I’m on a conference call, that I only have to listen in on, I ramp it up to 3.5 mph. If I’m going to have to do any talking on the call, I usually keep it about 3 mph. My goal is to just keep moving during the day. I’ve had a “desk job” for about 8 years and I feel like it really takes its toll in a number of ways.
I work from home, so the concerns of some about sweating throughout the day, don’t really apply. My dog doesn’t care as long as she gets her walk first
I haven’t “retro fitted” it with anything special like a lot of posts I read. I work off a laptop and just move it from the treadmill to my docking station and back as needed. Really need to convince my company to get me a wireless printer!
That’s about it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Worth every penny!
