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.

They told me to WALK THIS WAY,
This review is from: TrekDesk Treadmill Desk - Walking and Standing Desk for Treadmill - Perfect Treadmill Workstation (Sports)Pros: I do really like the concept of this desk but there is also room for improvements. The desk is large and can hold a lot. It is a nice thick plastic and height is adjustable. It is easy to clean and has different options to put the cup holders. It also states that it fits many treadmills and it did fit mine as well which is an older Sportcraft. I am only 5' 2" and the desk is on the 2nd whole and the treadmill is on the highest setting. This was a perfect fit to ensure my arms were aligned appropriately when typing. I did some research and this really seems to be the only option for a full size adjustable desk that I could find. All others appeared to either be fixed or much smaller.
Cons: You need power tools to put this together. You also have to drill into plastic; there are no pre-drilled holes. In paying this price, you would think it would be an easier assembly with holes pre-drilled. Instructions are easy to follow however not all items seem to... Read more
