Looking for reviews on a treadmill desk? If you find yourself on the fence about a treadmill desk or TrekDesk specifically we would encourage you to read the actual reviews of individuals who actually use them. We have noticed a lot of opinions posted by people that do not spend their days with a treadmill desk so we thought we might shed a little light on the topic by sharing some reviews from some of our actual TrekDesk users.
CM of Phoenix, AZ posted the following review of the TrekDesk on Amazon.com: I LOVE MY TREKDESK! As soon as I saw the TrekDesk online, I knew it was for me. I bought it immediately and my TrekDesk and I have been in love ever since I set it up, around two years ago. It arrived in perfect condition (the packaging is very smartly done), the quality is great, it was easy to assemble, and the desktop size is spacious. I wanted that spaciousness because I work from home and it provides room for everything I need.
I will also admit that I’ve folded laundry on it, as well. I love the two cup holders that come with it. (There are also some additional accessories.) It fits really well with my treadmill and, having moved twice since buying it, I can safely say that the desk is easy to fold up, move, and then put back up. What takes some doing is moving my treadmill, which is a giant sized, heavy professional model, not a lighter home one.
What I also like is that it still looks brand new, two years and two moves later. I place my treadmill and TrekDesk alongside a large window and the electrical cords go to one side, toward the wall with the window. I keep it close enough to the window that no one would walk along the window and so the cords do not get in anyone’s way. This is a full-time desk for me, though sometimes I’m just standing, with the treadmill turned off.
Originally, I mainly wanted to have a standing desk and thought the treadmill would be a plus. Originally, I was not certain I’d be able to walk and work (keyboarding) at the same time, however, I quickly found a speed that doesn’t interfere with anything I want to do – it’s like I’m sitting but much, much better. If the TrekDesk is for you – you know you want it and just want to be assured it is as it seems – I would definitely recommend it.

BH of Golden Valley, MN has been a TrekDesk user for sometime and summed up his thoughts succinctly: I’VE HAD MY TREKDESK FOR FOUR YEARS. IT’S ONE OF MY BEST PURCHASES EVER!
Joyce from Knoxville, TN had this to say about the TrekDesk Treadmill Desk: THIS DESK IS BETTER THAN ADVERTISED! I work remotely from my home and was concerned about the 2 pound a year I was putting on with not eating any more than I usually do. At 54 years old, I knew the answer was to increase my exercise and speed up my metabolism.
I purchased the TrekDesk and today is my first day using it. First let me say, I am a single girl and put the desk together by myself. I did look at the video one time to be sure I was placing the hinged support bracket in the correct direction. It took me about 45 minutes to put it together from start to finish!!! The directions are easy to follow and the pictures make it a very simple process to construct. I put it together in my living room (which has hardwood floors) and then took the support struts off to move the desk into my office and put it back together in less than 5 minutes.
I set up my desk and have plenty of space for writing, opening a manual or spreading out papers. I have a printer, laptop and external monitor which I have sitting on top of the file tray. The external monitor is the perfect height for me now; I used to have it sitting on 3 reams of paper!!
I don’t have a treadmill yet and plan on buying one in the next few days. I am tall, 6′, so the height of the desk on the lowest setting was perfect for me to stand at and work. I just marched in place throughout the day. I know this isn’t as beneficial as using a treadmill, but I wanted to be sure I was pleased with the desk before I went to the expense of the treadmill.
I move my office downstairs in the summer because it gets too warm upstairs for me to work there. I love that it is easy to remove two pieces from this large desk and the desk folds almost flat. It is heavy, but not too heavy; I know that in the fall I will be able to carry this up the stairs when I move my office for the winter. I can honestly say, this desk EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATION!! It is solid, sturdy, and spacious. I’m so looking forward to getting my treadmill so that I can use this desk to its full potential. I will write another post in two months to tell you how my weight loss is coming along. I believe you will love this desk when you get it and will not be disappointed.
