Rebel 1000 Under Desk Treadmill

 

  • Fits under a standing desk
  • Comes fully assembled
  • Lightweight design
  • Extremely quiet machine

The Rebel 1000 Under Desk Treadmill should fit under any standard sized standing desk. The Rebel offers a simple yet attractive design that will allow you to walk and work so you can become more productive.

It is safe to use, and it gives you some time to adjust on it by starting to move really slow. You can choose the speed; it goes from 0.5 to 2.0 mph. We usually walk leisurely in the range of 0.8-1.3 mph.

The product comes fully assembled, and can be used for as long as you wish with no limitations. The motor is extremely quiet and is controlled by a console that tracks your time, how many miles you walk and how fast you go.

We really like the warranty that comes with this product. You get one year on all parts, electronics and labor, two for the motor, and 20 years for the frame. Also if you’re not happy with it, you can return it in 30 days, no questions asked.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Most customers that bought the Rebel say they love how quiet it is. They say their steps on the belt are louder than the product itself. All of them recommend it for use in the office. It also cannot be heard on conference calls.

It does take some time adjusting to it, so some customers warn you to start by using it 1-2 hours a day. Also since it’s so quiet while running you might forget to turn it off when you walk out, so be careful about that.

WHAT WE LIKE

  • Good-looking design
  • Silent while working
  • Responsive customer care

WHAT WE DON’T LIKE

  • Takes time to get adjusted to it
  • Doesn’t turn off automatically

LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk

LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk

 

  • Treadmill base combined with a standing desk
  • Spacious desktop platform
  • Added wheels for mobility
  • Sync your station with your Smartphone

The LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk comes as a whole working package. You get the treadmill AND the desk that comes above it. The desktop platform is height adjustable and it should work for most people.

A bit faster then the previous model, LifeSpan can go form 0.4 up to 4 mph and it measures your steps, the calories you burn and your daily distance. Unlike our previous model, the LifeSpan won’t allow you to leave it on, because it will turn off automatically if not used.

The treadmill and the desk are not connected and the movement of one does not affect the other. The desk comes with a cable management option allowing you to direct the cords down through its frame. This treadmill is a bit bulkier and heavier than the previous one, but since you also get a pre-made desk, you won’t need to match any sizes.

You get one year labor warranty, two years for the parts, and three for the motor. The frame gets a life warranty. Sweet.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

Most people are happy with the LifeSpan workstation. They find it quiet and easy to work with. Due to its higher price range some of them recommend to try a standing desk first and see if you feel comfortable working while standing, and then switch to this one.

The assembly is something to prepare for. Some people say you’ll need at least one more person to help with the lifting of the desk, while others require up to 4 people.

WHAT WE LIKE

  • Practical set up
  • Roomy desk space
  • Automatically shuts off when not in use

WHAT WE DON’T LIKE

  • Higher price range

Titan Fitness Under Desk Walking Treadmill

Titan Fitness Under Desk Walking Treadmill

 

  • Larger track for comfort
  • Safety disconnect pin on the control console
  • Stay active while you work

The Titan Fitness Under Desk Walking Treadmill is a big as the name promises. This model is definitely made for people that wish to have more room for walking, or 18’’ of belt width. We understand how thinking how you walk can distract you from work, so we believe the Titan solves that issue.

The treadmill is electric and motorized which sounds like it might be a bit noisy. The speed goas up to 4 mph.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

When speaking about the smoothness of movement, people compare the Titan to the machines they use at the gym. They like that it is heavy and doesn’t wiggle at all.

On the downside, all the useful info you get while walking such as steps, speed or calories gets lost after you’re done with your workout, or have to step away for a while. If there was only a way to store that data.

WHAT WE LIKE

  • Gym grade quality and movement
  • Wide belt
  • Strong and sturdy

Many people and companies talk about the health benefits of desk treadmills. Let’s see what the research shows.

According to James Levine, a former Mayo Clinic doctor advocates strongly for walking while working. He suffered from obesity in his younger years, and found the desk treadmills to be quite helpful.

The treadmill has helped him lose weight but he also wanted to see how it affected the accuracy of medical transcriptionists. His research proved that the treadmill doesn’t impede your accuracy while typing.

At this point you might be thinking that it could be good losing some calories while you work, while staying healthy and active, but how much calories are we talking about?

Take a look at this informative article about the number of calories burned on treadmill per hour.

Basically, if you walk with the speed of James Levine, which is 1mph and you weigh 200 lb you will burn 125 calories an hour. Double the time you double the calories burned.

If you’re into modern design, and need a treadmill that will save you space, this might be a good choice for you. What’s unique for this treadmill is the self oiling system.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

All of the customers that got the Fitbill simply love it. They use it regularly and find it refreshing to be able to store it away. The app works pretty decent, and what’s important you can generate and store important data on your phone.

IPO Treadmill Smart Walk

IPO Treadmill Smart Walk

  • Award winning slim design
  • Foldable and portable
  • Smart speed control

The IPO Treadmill Smart Walk has a unique belt; it is divided in three areas:

  • The upper part where you walk if you wish to speed up
  • The middle area to hold constant speed
  • The slow down area

It is an interesting concept that also allows a third step start that basically works on the same principle, except you take two steps and then the third activates the treadmill.

Yet another interesting part about this gold medal winner is the handrail that can also be used to control speed. This treadmill will actually allow you to jog by simply raising the handrail and getting to 4.97 mph.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

The customers love the ‘no assembly’ part of the purchase and are ready to use it straight out of the box. Some customers recommend to apply the lubricant before you use it the first time.

It has a safety feature where the belt stops moving if you move away from it. This is a very helpful feature for most people.

A thing to take into consideration, this treadmill doesn’t run as smoothly as others on our list. It take some time to adjust to speed changes. Also, the cord to plug it in might be a bit short so make sure you’ve got an extension cord ready for this one.

WHAT WE LIKE

  • Smart technology
  • Jogging feature
  • Easy to store and move around

WHAT WE DON’T LIKE

  • The cord’s a bit short at 2 feet
  • Doesn’t change speed smoothly
