The TR1200-DT Treadmill Desk was designed around how people work. It includes a sturdy work surface to easily support a laptop, printer, computer display and other electronics devices. The treadmill console is conveniently located in the front of the desk so it doesn't take space away from the working surface. The display panel shows distance travelled, calories burned, time walking on the treadmill desk and the Intelli-Step™ feature works like a pedometer and counts steps taken while working and walking.
“Exercise is medicine,” says Dr. Paul Kennedy, Wellness Director for Leisure Fitness, “As human beings we were built to walk, and Americans sit way too much.” In corporate wellness seminars presented by “Dr. Paul”, he regularly stresses the effects of inactivity on health and wellness and more importantly the benefits of adding a reasonable exercise plan to the daily schedule. “The Treadmill Desk is a great way to add activity into busy daily lives.”
