Walk off those calories and meet deadlines simultaneously.
Spend most of your day at a desk? We feel your pain (literally). Let's make sitting while working a thing of the past. Sure, a standing desk is great for improving your posture, but those won't help you get any closer to your goal of 10,000 steps every day. With a treadmill desk, you can walk and burn calories while you work.
Dan Gaz, a physical activity and assessment program manager at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program in Rochester, Minnesota, told Forbes that treadmill desks are a great way to incorporate more movement into normally sedentary situations, adding that "your low metabolism may be caused by your job, rather than your genes." Exercise has also been proven to increase the production of neurochemicals and boost neuron numbers to improve memory and thinking abilities.
A treadmill desk is the perfect solution to help you achieve more movement throughout your workday. When you’re shopping for one, keep in mind that you can mix and match components. As long as your standing desk has a high clearance and no cross bars for added support, chances are it'll work with an under-the-desk treadmill.
To make your search easier, we've listed our favorite under-desk treadmills. It's worth mentioning that few include the treadmill and the desk, so you may need to pick and choose depending on your needs and budget.
