Below, we compare the top treadmill desks or “walking workstations” for 2017. Keep in mind that many treadmill desk reviews include under-desk treadmills can be purchased separately. Therefore, you can create the workspace you really want depending on the furniture you need. In addition, you can also build your own custom DIY treadmill desk around exercise equipment you already have. You can save $100’s, plus this DIY project is actually not difficult to do. Sometimes, people opt to make a desk and put their money toward a better quality treadmill.

Why Should You Care About My Treadmill Desk Reviews?
First of all, I use a treadmill desk myself (the Exerpeutic). As you’d expect, my own experience can help other people find the desks that they want. Plus, you can even find information on how to build a treadmill desk yourself and save money.
In my opinion, the NordicTrack and ProForm Thinline models rate a close second. I say this because they are much more affordable than other versions, plus they are more compact and make efficient use of space. However, these workstations were not available when I bought my treadmill desk.
When I first started shopping for a treadmill desk, I had no idea what to expect. Could I actually walk while I worked?
With so many unknown factors, it was hard for me to justify spending $1000 for a piece of equipment/furniture. Should I simply cross my fingers hope it would work? Hence, I personally find treadmill desk reviews very helpful.
Now that I own one, I can say that I am really glad I made the purchase. I love it and use it all the time.
That said, standing desks take some time to get used to, not to mention walking while typing, etc.. Therefore, be prepared for a few weeks of uncertainty while you switch back and forth from sitting to standing/walking. Most people experience this same transition.
(By the way, I still sit and work sometimes. However, I now find that I get antsy after about an hour and want to move around.) I can’t complain about that!
Treadmill Desks have More Benefits than I Thought…
Lastly, after that initial “getting-used-to-walking-while-working” stage, I found that I stayed more active throughout the day. For example, walking at my desk helped me burn more calories and get more done both on and off the treadmill.
I hope that the information on this site helps you, especially if you are like me and want to get off your butt. =)
