A treadmill desk is a treadmill and desk combined into one multi tasking, all inclusive machine. A treadmill desk must have an adjustable desk table top, and a treadmill track underneath to be considered a treadmill desk. When it comes to purchasing a treadmill desk you have to decide if you want to buy an all inclusive treadmill desk that comes with the desk or if you want to buy the track and desk separately and put the two together. Regardless of which kind you get, a treadmill desk will boost your productivity and daily dose of exercise. We’ve selected three highly rated treadmill desks that will improve and transform the way you work.


1. LifeSpan DT5 Treadmill Desk

The LifeSpan DT5 Treadmill Desk is an all inclusive treadmill desk. It comes with a treadmill track base and an unattached manual adjustable standing desk. A great feature about this treadmill track is that it’s made with a quiet HP motor and compression shocks that allow you to get your daily steps in without disturbing your coworkers. If you move workstations from time to time, it also comes with built in wheels that make it easy to move around. Unlike many other treadmill desks, this desk has a large desktop surface that can fit a desktop computer, laptop, paperwork and more. Another nifty feature this desk has is bluetooth syncing. If you want to get your workout results from your treadmill onto your phone all you have to do is hover your phone over the desk console and your data will sync.

PROS: Quiet motor that won’t disturb your coworkers.

CONS: Can only adjust desk height manually.

2. LifeSpan DT7 Treadmill Desk

The Lifespan DT7 Treadmill Desk is quiet enough so you can talk on the phone while walking, all without being disrupted by the loud sound of your feet slapping against the track. The only difference between the Lifespan DT5 and DT7 is that the DT7 desk is electronically height adjustable, where the DT5 desk’s height can only be adjusted manually. Adjusting the height of the desk electronically makes it significantly easier to set the desk height to your dimensions. Other than that one difference the DT7 is the same exact desk as the DT5 just a bit pricier.

PROS: Electronically adjustable desk height.

CONS: Only goes up to 4 mph.

3. LifeSpan DT3 Under Desk Treadmill

If you already have the desk you want and are just looking for a treadmill track to fit underneath it, the LifeSpan DT3 Treadmill Desk might be the best choice for you. This treadmill track is easy to use and set up. All you do is plug in the track to the nearest outlet and it’s ready to use, no pre-programming is required. Although the track doesn’t come with a desktop, you can still see how many calories you burned and how far or long you walked on the display. If anything happens to your treadmill track over time, you’re covered. The motor for the belt has a three year warranty, you also get a one year labor warranty, and lifetime warranty on the frame.

PROS: Cheaper than all inclusive treadmill desks, more flexibility on the desk you want.

CONS: The controls can make occasional beeping noises.
