The ultimate solution for a healthy office: Keep moving with an under-desk treadmill.
We spend massive time at our desks. And we’ve all heard “sitting is the new smoking“. So what are you doing about it?
I’ve had this under-desk treadmill since 2018 and simply could not live without it. Starting a business is no easy feat – I’ve spent countless 70-80+ hour-weeks at the desk. One thing that keeps me sane is walking while I work! (and yes, of course, eating clean too!)
The treadmill’s quiet motor and adjustable speed allow me to walk and talk on phone calls, and even video calls. (If you’ve had a video meeting with me, you know this is true!) I often walk while writing and watching video content.
I aim to walk a minimum of 1.5 hours total each day at the desk.
It’s near 1 pm, and I’m walking as I type this. I’ve already hit 9,645 steps, with a total of 1 hr 28 minutes, so I’ll likely hit closer to 2 – 2.5 hours today! That said, 6k+ steps a day on this thing is great for most anyone.
If we’re going to live Healthy Anywhere – we need to take a close look at how we’re working!
A few technical notes:
- I bought the smallest model (i.e. base model, “TR800″), so I could easily fit both the treadmill and a chair under my desk, which is 60” wide and adjusts vertically for sitting to standing.
- The intermediate model is 2″ wider – so if you want a wider base, check it out. The premium model is 2.5″ wider than the base model and has a more robust motor for all-day continuous use (e.g. if sharing a workstation). There are also options that come with a desk if you don’t already have one.
- The display console tells you exactly where you’re at with time, step count, and more – simply hit reset each morning to start fresh!
- Make sure to purchase 100% silicone lubricant to keep your treadmill in good working condition. Application is needed after ~40 hours of use, so I put a ticker on my calendar every 20 days to spray the treadmill belt. (It’s easy – just be sure to buy lubricant! Available on Amazon if soldout in Lifespan Accessories)
- I once had dust accumulate around the motor after many months of use, so I now check under the hood every few months and quickly wipe it down with a dust rag to prevent accumulation.
- I learned the necessity of using the lubricant and keeping the motor clean when my speed sensor died after a year of negligent use (no lubrication care!). The service department was wonderful in sending a new sensor, for free, and I was able to easily replace it myself. BUT – the days I went without the treadmill were tough! Avoid my plight and take good care of it!
- If you don’t have a wood or hard-surface floor (e.g. bamboo, etc) then you’ll want to get a mat. You may want one either way to protect your floor and add extra sound-dampening. (For the record, I have a hard floor, and don’t use one of these).
- I have my treadmill underneath an adjustable desk. You’ll ideally want to vary sitting and standing throughout the day. If you have any questions on, email me: leigh [at] healthyanywhere [dot] [com].
Desk jockeys, rejoice – you can “move often” while you work!
