Why not get your office work done and stay fit at the same time? The Unsit Treadmill Desk lets you comfortably combine 2 activities into one, and it may provide more health/work advantages than you think…
What Unexpected Benefits Can You Get from a Treadmill Desk?
1. Get Your Work Done Faster:
First of all, many people report having better focus when working at treadmill desks. In fact, I experienced this first hand for myself and started finishing my work faster.
I don’t know exactly why this is. Maybe standing and moving increases blood flow to the brain? Or maybe sitting still in a chair tends to make your mind wander?
In any case, getting work done faster while I burn calories at the office is a win-win in my book.
2. Improve Posture and Possibly an Achy Back:
Second, standing/walking at a desk job VS sitting can help improve posture. Consequently, some people discover that they can reduce or get rid of back pain that they get from sitting too long.
The following video explains how back pain and other ailments can occur from long-term sitting. In the early stages, you may not even realize it’s happening to you.
Note: By the way, you can adjust the standing desk to the exact height you need. This is also important for posture. FYI – You want the desktop surface at the height where your arms rest at a 90 degree angle when typing.
3. Maintain More Energy Throughout the Day:
Third, I find that continual movement throughout the day helps keep me energized. Even slow walking can help with this. In other words, you don’t have to get out of breath.
Having said that, I found that there can be a “learning curve” when it comes to walking while working. At first, I felt tired after an hour of walking. However, that simply takes getting used to.
And the same goes for typing while walking. Over time, it gets easier and easier. Plus, conference calls and webinars are super simple to multi-task.
Note: I have found that most walking treadmills run quietly enough that they don’t disturb phone calls. In fact, many callers don’t know you’re walking because they can’t even hear the moving belt.
How Unique Treadmill Shape Makes Work Easier…
InMovement’s under-desk treadmill has a unique shape compared to standard gym treadmills. This makes total sense, because you use a desk treadmill completely differently than you do when you go to the gym.
In contrast, this walking treadmill has wider, shorter dimensions. Therefore, you aren’t limited to walking in a narrow area where you can’t easily access all areas of your desk.
In addition, the shorter length enables the machine to fit better in offices. Plus, it eliminates the “tripping hazard” factor.
I personally use a short treadmill belt in my home office. I didn’t actually need the shorter length, but it sure makes the room feel more spacious.
Note: Did you know that you take shorter steps when walking VS running? As a result, you don’t need a long treadmill belt for working at your desk (even if you have long legs).
Ultra-Simple Console + Comprehensive Tracking App Give You the Fitness Data You Want Without Taking Up Space:
The Unsit treadmill console consists of a basic button and knob. Start or pause the belt by pressing the button, and adjust the speed by turning the knob.
This minimal set-up makes it super simple to operate your machine. Plus, the console doesn’t take up a lot of space on your desk.
That said, you can connect your treadmill with the Unsit App to track calories burned, distance traveled, steps, etc.. On top of that, the device works with Fitbit, Garmin and Apple Health devices/apps.
