Thanks for stopping by StandUpWorkStyle.com!
I’m Billie. My search for treadmill desks started with back pain I was having. I wanted to get rid of the back pain I was having – but also prevent it from coming back. I work long hours on a computer, so I needed to find a solution that would essentially… work while I was working.
I started by getting an ergonomic chair, which then turned into sitting on an exercise ball at my desk, which led me to building a standing workstation which eventually took me to treadmill desks.
For me, the treadmill desk is the perfect solution to keep my back healthy. However, I did not know that it would help me stay more focused while working. I started getting a lot more done, which I didn’t expect. I stopped eating at my desk (a bad habit I had developed), and I of course stopped getting stiff legs from sitting for hours at a time.
Just like standing desks, walking workstations take some getting used to. I started with small sessions and eventually worked up to longer time periods – actually without really thinking about it. I still sit occasionally, but I really prefer standing.
Through my own experience and research, I gained some valuable insight into the world of treadmill desks and standing workstations. Hopefully I can shed some light and answer your questions so that you can easily find the ultimate work set up that you want. I tell you – it makes working a lot more fun.
Anyway – if you still have questions that aren’t answered on the site, please ask. I am happy to help if I can.
