Was skeptical - now a convert!,
This review is from: TrekDesk Treadmill Desk - Walking and Standing Desk for Treadmill - Perfect Treadmill Workstation (Sports)I purchased my TrekDesk about 6 months ago but it sat in it's box for a few months before I got around to pairing it with the Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill (also bought from Amazon). I was pretty skeptical at first - especially after reviewing the most negative review video.
I work mostly at home as an IT consultant and have lived a very sedentary life as a result and have put on at least 50lbs too much and really needed to make a change in my life. If I was going to do this - I really needed to 1) keep it under budget (we have 5 kids at home etc.) and 2) I needed enough space to hold all my stuff (I use three monitors with my PC) and it had to hold it all steadily. It's now been 8 weeks since I started using my new desk/treadmill and I wanted to tell my experience.
Pre-workout and building courage phase:
Once I received my treadmill I was finally forced to open the box for the desk and to begin to build it. I was pleasantly... Read more

The Best Desk on the Market!,
This review is from: TrekDesk Treadmill Desk - Walking and Standing Desk for Treadmill - Perfect Treadmill Workstation (Sports)
I researched various desks, and the TrekDesk provided the most space for my double monitors and office supplies. Yes, it is an investment, but so is your health!
I canceled my gym membership, because I never had time to go to the gym. I was getting about 2,000 steps per day. Now with my TrekDesk, I am hitting my goal of over 10,000 steps per day by noon! All while working!
I started out at 1 mph. Then, I moved up to 1. 5. I sometimes get to 2 mph, but I have found the best pace for me is 1.8 mph. At this pace, you can still type and operate your mouse very smoothly. I'm sure everyone has their own "perfect pace", but remember to start out slow.
Wouldn't it be great if every classroom and every office in the country offered these as an option for students and staff? Imagine the productivity and healthy benefits!
I want to convince everyone that this is a great purchase, and I have not regret it for one moment.

great product, a bit overpriced,
This review is from: TrekDesk Treadmill Desk - Walking and Standing Desk for Treadmill - Perfect Treadmill Workstation (Sports)Assembly requires the end user to drive a lot of screws into place into areas that do not have pre-drilled holes. The idea is, the screws will be able to be driven into the designated spot, which is very difficult as the plastic is hard and thick. If the holes were pre-drilled, assembly would have been very easy and quick. One piece does not fit correctly, the holes are over 1/8" off, making it impossible for pieces to be put together.
Very good solid design
Lots of work space
A bit overpriced
No way to contact the company by phone
Holes not predrilled for assembly
I chose the Trekdesk because of it's generous work surface, overall stability and ease of storage when not being used.
Seeing it endorsed by so many news outlets and companies in general, and considering the price, led me to believe that I’d be receiving a quality product that is... Read more
