this is toooo funny.. how can u run and work or use laptop at the same time?? i guess it would be good if u want to watch a movie or show while you are running... but it would take up a lot of space.. so i will pass
This is seriously a great thing for anybody to do.
I setup my stand-up work desk with a treadmill in April this year and have walked 121 days for a total of 373 miles (avg of ~3.1 miles/day). The week before last I walked 26.5 miles (5 days), last week I walked 18 miles (3 days), and today I walked 7.5 miles. I have not changed my eating habits a bit (if anything I'm eating a little more), but I've still noticed my pants being a tad bit looser around the waist. It was always very difficult to motivate myself to go to the gym, and there was no way I'd walk around town... walking is soooo boring to me. Now, I can walk at 1.5mph without having any affect on my work. I'm 6' 3" so a shorter person may need to knock a couple tenths off the speed to avoid distraction. With a couple herniated discs in my lower back, sitting for long periods would cause back and leg pain, so I took the leap into a stand-up desk. However, it didn't take too long before I was being lazy and just sitting at a drafting chair at my stand-up desk instead of standing up.
With an unused treadmill in the room I would be remodeling for a bedroom, I decided to hack it apart, mount the display in a separate box, and wire up a custom control box. I probably spent 20 hours and about $100 hacking the treadmill electronics to get a treadmill desk without the easy height adjustment and the low-speed option of this. My treadmill (and I think most regular ones) go between 1 - 10mph, but this one's .4 - 4.0.
This could be a great and healthy Christmas present for my wife, who spends all day at a desk like I did.
