Treadmill desks are the ultimate solution if you're looking to maximize the movement and health of your desk time. They are undoubtedly more expensive than a traditional standing desk alone, but the value added to your life is impossible to put a price tag on.
By creating a steady state of movement, a treadmill desk helps boost thermogenesis in the body, helps keep blood and other systems pumping, helps boost good hormone production, and encourages the body to maintain an ideal posture.
That last point is one of the lesser known benefits of using a walking treadmill. Whereas many standing desk users report fatigue after a certain amount of time standing, treadmill desk users typically do NOT. The slow and steady walking motion forces the body to stay in good posture and actually contributes to energy creation, as opposed to using it up - allowing some users to stay on their feet for most of the day. Many have been known to walk 5+ miles in a day, without feeling any kind of energy crash. It might sound counter-intuitive, but a body in motion stays in motion.
And for those of you that might be concerned about being able to work while you walk, we suggest taking the leap and trying it out. You'll be walking at a very slow pace (typically between 1 mph and 1.4 mph), so it's quite a bit easier than you would think.
If you already own a sit-stand desk, then we suggest you choose from one of these options which can be paired with virtually any standing desk.
Just keep in mind that most of these treadmills raise you 5" - 8" off the ground, so it's important to pair these with a taller desk. We suggest a 50" maximum height adjustment or better, depending on your own height.
Below is a list of our top recommended and best-selling treadmill desks. Each of these come with an electric sit-stand desk bundled with the office treadmill.
Please note that all of the options below come with electric height adjustable desks. If you're looking for something a little less expensive, you could look into the Lifespan desks with the DT5 manual standing desk, but we don't generally recommend this option.
