I have worried for years that I am too sedentary due to working in front of my computer for sometimes 10 hours a day, so I was so excited to see this product. I've been using for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. It took a few days to get used to and I felt a little dizzy when I wasn't using it the first couple of days but your eyesight and body adjust to being in motion and looking at the computer screen. I can walk 3 mph and still work and not sound winded on the phone which can add up to a lot of miles by the day's end. The one day I walked almost 20 miles without even realizing it. I would say use in moderation at first. I used it so much in the beginning that my feet were covered in blisters after the first week. lol. I don't due anything in moderation. The only thing that I dislike is that it won't go over 4mph so I can't run on it when I'm not working. For the amount you pay it should be dual use in my opinion. Also, the width of the belt may be small for some. I am a slightly built woman and the width of the belt has been tight for my gait. For a larger person this may be an issue. All in all, an amazing invention that I think may add years to my life!!
I am a lawyer and I spend at least 8-9 hours a day on email and writing/reviewing documents on my computer. A friend recommended this and after doing some research, I purchased this six weeks ago. I was worried about typing and reading- not at all a problem at all on either front. I started out during the first couple of days at about 1.6 mph and now am at 2 mph. I can read and type without any issues at all. It does not effect talking on the phone either. I am averaging about 5-7 miles per day without even thinking about it and feel so much better than when I was sitting all day. The electronic desk movement (up and down) is key- I wouldn't buy one without that feature. My only "complaint" is that the desk height controls are in the middle of the hand rest on the desk so occasionally I accidentally hit it but it's not a big deal. Just strange that they didn't put that feature out of the way with the other controls. I absolutely love this product and wish I'd been using it sooner!
I bought this as I spend a lot of time on conference calls and wanted to get some steps in. My husband works in the room below the treadmill and was very worried that he would be able to hear the treadmill but he can not at all. I am very happy.
This is an excellent product and has lasted a year and a half with zero problems. My only complaint is that Overstock took weeks to get it to me with internal errors. I would have preferred paying the taxes and purchasing on Amazon. Love the desk though!
