Treadmill Desk
Keeping Fit and Healthy Whilst You Work



What's a Treadmill Desk? 

In a few sentences...

A Treadmill Desk is simply a desk and a treadmill - combined.

Anyone using a treadmill desk would walk slowly on the treadmill, whilst continuing to work normally at their desk, carrying out tasks at a PC or on the telephone.

The aim is to combine gentle exercise with everyday tasks, thereby preventing the bad health which would likely be a result of a sedentary lifestyle.

At the sort of speeds a treadmill desk runs at, the normal office tasks should be able to be carried out without any difficulty.

A treadmill desk normally operates at 1-2mph - the ideal pace to work successfully.

So what really are the benefits of a treadmill desk?


Benefits of a Treadmill Desk

A number of studies have shown that prolonged sitting at a desk could be linked to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and early death.

Doing no activity at all can be as dangerous as smoking.

It's reckoned that by replacing an office desk with a treadmill desk for 2-3 hours per day, the average person could lose 20-30kg per year.

Simply walking less than 2mph whilst carrying out your normal office duties can burn an estimated 100-130 calories/hour.

So it's clear that using a treadmill desk can have massive health benefits.
