• A Treadmill Desk May Be Your Home Fitness Answer

    Like most people, you are either working from home a little or a lot. And, in this time of crisis you are not going to your local gym. And, just maybe going for a long walk or run does not appeal to you because of social distancing. Many people are turning to home equipment, and while that satisfies to a degree the workout need, what about work?

    Enter maybe the first serious treadmill desk. You can walk on it while you work with a large work surface. With a nifty flip feature, the treadmill console turns into a desk and back again. So, you can place your work and walk at a pace that is conducive to your work.

    What also makes this product appealing is under the hood; this is a serious exercise treadmill. It features a 3.0 HP motor, and speeds which range from .3 to 10 MPH. And for those who want to jog or walk up hills, the incline goes to 12%. Those statistics translate into a treadmill that will fit just about every user from casual walker to serious runner.

    It features a suspension system to make it easy on the knees. And the feature that really makes it cool is it is serious treadmill that also folds up. With that feature, it can fit many more places in the home or the home office.

    Treadmills aren’t for everyone, yet if you need one that also functions as a workstation as well as a serious exercise device, this might be the fitness ticket. What I also like about this is the company, BodyCraft will ship it directly to your house. Out of the box, and in nine minutes, whoosh, instant treadmill after you secure a couple of parts.
