There are many problems associated with not getting enough exercise, and that includes both physical and psychological problems. Because of lack of exercise, these problems can arise, especially for those who work for long hours behind a desk. However, those problems are a thing of the past, all thanks to the LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk. This desk-treadmill combination aims to provide desk workers a chance to keep up with their fitness routine without interfering with their work schedule. So, if you’re looking for a treadmill system that would help you get on your feet while you work, then you might want to give this one a shot.
The Design and Deck Features:
This ingenious desk-treadmill system is designed to be sturdy enough to not only bear the weight of the user but also that of the various components to be placed on the table. The system measures 74” long, 30” wide and 56” high and can support user weights of up to 350 pounds. The desk top measures 31” x 46.5” and its height can also be easily adjusted to match the user’s height. The height easily fits individuals with a height range of 4’10” to 6’8”.
A generous walking surface of 20” x 56” has been provided for the user’s safety and comfort. The deck has been fitted with 6 elastomers cushioning system for a more effective workout without the additional joint stress. The belt can reach speeds within the range of 0.4 to 4 mph, making it suitable for a comfortable walking pace while working. A 2.25 HP motor is responsible for the belt speed.
The Console and Programs:
Despite the simple design of this superb system, it is equipped with enough features that allow it to be at par with, or even exceed other desktop treadmills. A simple console is fitted right in front of the desk to easily give you access to various adjustment options without being an obstruction to your work. It is fitted with a LED digital display that shows time, calories, distance, number of steps, and belt speed. There are two exceptional features on this system that gives this treadmill an edge over the competition. One is the built-in Intelli-Guard that automatically pauses the treadmill after 20 seconds from the moment you step off the belt, thus contributing to the safety feature that this system contributes. Another feature is the Intelli-Step, which automatically keeps track of the number of steps and displays it on the console.
In terms of downsides, I can only find one. The fact that this system cannot be folded makes this somewhat unsuitable for those living in places where space is limited.
In a nutshell, this system is easy to use and is highly recommended for those who want to keep fit without compromising their work productivity. If you are a desk worker and couldn’t find the time to exercise, then this system is just perfect for you.
