I'm a pretty active guy and go to the gym about 3-4 times a week. When I heard about this Treadmill Desk called The WalkTop, I was definitely intrigued.
I attended the media launch last week to check and try out The WalkTop. It's from Canadian company Fitneff (Fitness & Efficiency) - dedicated to creating active solutions for productive lives, making it easier to add daily activity into your busy schedule.
The WalkTop Treadmill Desk is stylish, light and compact -- designed specifically to attach onto the majority of popular treadmills currently on the market. It can be installed in minutes and adjusts effortlessly to individual height requirements so users can position and reposition the desk for optimal ergonomics and comfort. Unlike most treadmill desks, the WalkTop can be set at an incline to be used when reading or when using a tablet.
The WalkTop Treadmill Desk provides lots of health benefits. It reduces sedentary time and chronic diseases associated with "sitting disease", such as heart diseases, cancer and diabetes. It's also good to have at the office - helps increase work productivity by boosting physical activity linked to increases in mood, memory and attention.
I really liked the WalkTop - what a neat idea! It's great for people, like me who enjoy multitasking - allowing you to get work done while getting some exercise at the same time. At the launch event, I tried using both a tablet and laptop on the WalkTop. It was comfortable when using the tablet: reading and flipping through pages was easy. However, when using the laptop, it felt a little weird when typing while my feet was moving at the same time. It took me a few minutes to get use to. Overall, it was a fun experience.
