DIY Walking Treadmill Desk and Shelves Installed
From the Archives:
Remember the $800 Treadmill I found at the Thrift Store for $150? Well Friday I installed the shelves for our monitors. This DIY treadmill desk is easy to make.
You know, I love my power tools. 🙂 Hubby telecommutes 2-3 days a week and he will also be walking while working. We have it set up with 3 monitors total. The one in the middle is for TV. We can watch the news while working or even our favorite shows. Below is a picture I took while hubby was setting up.
Yesterday was the first day my husband had a full day of work on the treadmill. He got in 20,000 steps on his Fitbit simply by walking at a slow pace while working! I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit jealous that he reached it before me. I’ll walk about 45-60 minutes and then take a break. This seems to work well for me and I’m not sore. I do have the treadmill at a bit of an incline (chiropractor says it helps with shin splints). I also put my weights on my desk, so I can use them with my arms when I’m just watching TV.
We are still working out details, like raising our keyboards to a comfortable level.
