The UPLIFT Treadmill Desk - Sit-Stand-Walk combines the benefits of a sit-to-stand desk with the added movement of having a treadmill at work. This workstation treadmill will get you on your feet and moving, resulting in increased blood flow and more calories burned. The LifeSpan treadmill's control panel sits on top of your UPLIFT height-adjustable desk, so you can monitor the distance you've walked, as well as your speed, time spent and calories burned.
Reap both the physical and mental benefits of an exercise desk. Even walking at only 1.0 mph - slow enough to still type or talk on the phone - you will quickly notice an increase in focus and energy. With the UPLIFT 900 desk's height adjustablitity range and sit-to-stand capabilities, you can go from sitting to standing to walking in just a few seconds. Don't go to the gym after work; save time and increase productivity by exercising at work with the UPLIFT Treadmill Desk.

*Please note that the up, down and memory keys on the keypad included with the desk frame operate as follows: The four memory keys allow the desk to move to one of four preset vertical positions with just one touch, meaning you do not have to hold down a numbered memory key to make an adjustment to a saved position. Please be sure there is adequate clearance above and below your desk, and check cord lengths to insure adequate length of all cords before adjusting the desk height using the memory keys. Or you can simply push and hold down one of the up/down keys until you reach your desired height, if you don't wish to use the preset memory keys.

We offer three LifeSpan Treadmill models, the TR800-DT3, the TR1200-DT3, and the TR5000-DT3. The TR800-DT3 is recommended for up to three hours of use per day, which is more than enough time for most people. However, if you do plan on using the treadmill for more than three hours per day, or if the treadmill will be used in a multi-shift application, we recommend the heavier-duty TR1200-DT3 model. For all-day or communal use, we recommend the commercial-grade TR5000-DT3 treadmill.

The UPLIFT Treadmill Mat is a must-have accessory for your walking workstation. The mat will help prevent dust and dirt from getting into the machinery of your treadmill, keeping your equipment safe. It helps to absorb impact, reduce vibrations, and protect your floor, and the textured, non-slip surface is easy to clean. The UPLIFT Treadmill Mat puts the finishing touch on your treadmill desk set-up.
LifeSpan Treadmill Lubricant is the grease recommended by the manufacturer for proper maintainance of the LifeSpan TR800-DT3. You should lubricate your treadmill's running belt after 40 hours of use or every three months. This bottle will come with enough lubricant for four applications or about one year's worth.
The Advanced Wire Management Kit is a complete cable organization system for your height-adjustable desk. We developed this kit after years of desk installations. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords. The kit includes the following:
Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UPLIFT Advanced Wire Management Kit:
The included cable organization tray forms the crux of your wire management solution with a sleek, black design that seamlessly blends with your desk's design and mounts securely to the desktop with two self-tapping wood screws or a strip of included double-sided tape. At 3.6'' wide, this tray is wide enough to accommodate cords, power supplies and the included power strip, minimizing below-desk clutter. While we recommend adding the entire advanced wire management kit for a full cable management solution with the most customization, this wire management tray portion of the kit can also be added to your desk order on its own.
10 self-adhesive wire mounts and 100 single-use cable ties allow for cables to be bundled and pulled taut against the bottom of the desk, eliminating hanging wires.
As your workstation develops over the years, it's likely that you'll need to re-bundle wires for routing or storage inside the wire management tray. A set of 10 reusable cable ties is also included, allowing for modification of cable bundling as needed without needing to replace individual cable ties.
Additionally, the Advanced Wire Management Kit provides a desk-to-wall cable organizer to organize wires running from an outlet or equipment to your desk in a single bundle. The desk-to-wall cable organizer's heavy-duty "spiral" design protects the cables inside from wear and tear, while also allowing cables to be integrated into the organizer or removed from it easily. An included quick wire add/remove tool rapidly and efficiently routes cables into the organizer.
Finally, if you need more power outlets close at hand, or just need an all-in-one power solution, a clamp-on surge protector with USB charger can be added to the Advanced Wire Management Kit or ordered as a standalone product. This unique surge protector features six power outlets with space for two large AC adapters as well as a pair of ports for charging USB devices. Capable of clamping onto any surface up to 1 3/8'' thick, this surge protector can placed nearly anywhere on your desk for convenient outlet access. Please note that this surge protector will not fit inside of the wire management tray and must be mounted on the desk edge.
Grommet holes can be added to your UPLIFT desk to allow for through-desk cable routing or monitor arm mounting, or can include a power grommet with two AC power outlets. The holes can be drilled at the rear edge of your desk on either the left, right or center, or a combination of the three. Corner desk grommet holes are drilled 3.5'' from the left or right side and 2.5'' from the rear edge, with central grommet holes placed in the center of the desk 2.5'' from the rear edge. For custom grommet hole positions, please call us at 1-800-531-3746.
Each grommet hole includes your choice of a black or chrome grommet hole cover, or an UPLIFT Power Grommet. Black grommet hole covers feature flip-top tabs that cover the cord slot when not in use. UPLIFT Power Grommets feature two UL-approved power outlets, a small hole for wires, and a 58" cord. These power grommets give you easy outlet access for peripherals, and allow power sources to move up and down with your desk when going from sitting to standing. Standard grommet holes with covers are 3" in diameter, and power grommets are slightly larger at 3.125" wide to accommodate your outlets.
The UPLIFT Treadmill Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four - two for each leg. They can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but easily unlocked when you need to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5 inches of height to your desk.
The attached stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic or adjustable; using a monitor arm will allow you to maintain good posture, avoid eye strain, control monitor position and save desktop space. Most people who purchase a monitor arm come back and say they should have done so years ago.
The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a stylish, pneumatic monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement. These arms support monitors weighing up to 17.5 lbs. and feature an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for easy adjustment. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, we also offer the UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, for two monitors up to 17.5 lbs. each.
Add an UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat to your desk order, and receive an additional $10 discount off the regular mat price. Our UPLIFT Sit-Stand anti-fatigue desk mats are extremely durable and comfortable. The padding is an inch thick and the surface is puncture-proof to withstand high heels or even the wheels of your chair. Choose from a 2' x 3' size or a 3' x 5' size.
Note: If you wish to use your UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat as a chair mat as well, you will need the 3' x 5' size.
The Two-Drawer Mobile Pedestal is a great addition to your sit-stand workstation, offering you additional storage space for your documents and office supplies. It includes casters for easy movement and a locking top drawer for security and privacy. The pedestal can be ordered in a maple, mahogany, cherry or black finish to match your laminate desktop, and it's available at a discounted price when you bundle it with your UPLIFT Desk!
When using a sit-stand desk, we recommend mounting your computer beneath your desktop to prevent cables from being stretched and pulled out of their ports when moving the desk from sitting to standing positions. We don't recommend leaving your CPU on the floor, as most cords aren't long enough to stretch from a computer placed on the floor to the standing height of your desk. While one option is to place your CPU on top of your desk, a CPU holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space. For an adjustable CPU holder at a discounted price when bundled with this desk, our own UPLIFT CPU Holder features a 360° swivel mount and a gliding track mechanism for easy access to your computer.

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT desk, giving you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk. A keyboard tray will also relieve the strain caused by over-reaching to type and is an excellent way to manage repetitive stress issues. An UPLIFT Desk is available with your choice of two keyboard trays. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side. For those who prefer more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with two surfaces: a 19.75'' wide platform for the keyboard and a separate 9'' diameter surface for the mouse. The mouse platform can easily move to the left or right side for ambidextrous mousing, and is also depth adjustable, allowing you to position your mouse closer to your body or farther away without adjusting the rest of the keyboard tray.
Though they have different platforms, both keyboard trays offer the same intuitive adjustability, wide range of ergonomic features and simple installation. With their easy lift-and-release, knob-free locking height adjustment that adjusts a full 8'', wheel tilt adjustment, and easy-to-read height and tilt indicators, both UPLIFT Keyboard Trays allow you to position your keyboard and mouse in a healthy, comfortable spot, whether seated or standing. The 0.25'' thick phenolic keyboard trays both feature a removable foam palm rest, a foam mouse pad and a cord manager for easy routing of your cables. Either of the low-profile, heavy-duty platforms will get your keyboard and mouse even closer to your lap, allow for compact storage and comfortably fit most keyboard and mouse combinations. These high-quality keyboard tray systems are available at a discounted price when bundled together with your UPLIFT Desk.
All necessary mounting hardware is included, including an 11'' track that allows your keyboard tray system to be mounted without interference from the desk's support beam underneath, and a 21'' track that you can use if the crosspiece is removed from the desk. While the 11'' track length will not allow you to fully store your tray along the track under your desk, we find that most users never fully retract their tray even if they have that capability. For users with a 60'' or wider desktop, you can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform around underneath the desktop for storage, or achieve a fully-retractable keyboard tray along the track by removing the crosspieces to form an UPLIFT 920 Desk with no crossbar interference and mounting the full 21'' track under the desk.

Adding an UPLIFT Desk Modesty Panel & Cable Management will give your UPLIFT desk's minimalist design an extra level of privacy. This modesty panel easily attaches to your desktop, traveling with it as you move from sitting to standing height, and features a mesh pocket for convenient wire management. The UPLIFT Modesty Panel, available at a discount when bundled with your desk, will help increase under-desk privacy while maintaining your desk's clean, open design, and is available in three different sizes to correspond with our 48'', 60'' and 72'' desktops:
For a little bit of extra storage, add an UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer at a discounted price when bundled together with your desk. This half-circle-shaped, swiveling drawer easily attaches to the underside of your desktop via a central mount and pivots in either direction, rotating out to give you quick and easy access to smaller accessories that you don't want cluttering up your desktop. Featuring pen and pencil trays, a notepad slot, a tape dispenser, and storage compartments, the 13.6'' W x 7.4'' D x 1.3'' thick UPLIFT accessories drawer will help keep your height adjustable desk cleaner and more organized.

Prices may differ depending on the circumstances, but you will always be contacted for prior approval in the event of any pricing discrepancies. Feel free to call us at 800-531-3746 with any questions not addressed below or to discuss further what delivery option will work best for you.
With the following Standard, Lift Gate and Limited Access delivery options, your order will typically arrive 2 - 5 business days from shipment, depending on your location within the Contiguous US. When your order ships, we'll send tracking as well as freight carrier information so you can check on when it's arriving. With these options, the products will remain in their original packaging with no assembly provided. Freight deliveries do not require a scheduled appointment beforehand. Once you receive tracking, you can call the freight company and ask for the 4-hour window they expect to be in your area, and you can request that they call you when they are an hour from delivery. If you are unable to receive the shipment or it has to be held in storage, fees may be incurred.
The delivery agent will pull up to your loading dock or office at ground level, and you are responsible for taking the items off the truck and into your business, either with the help of a forklift or a few of your employees. Typically, a shipment will weight approximately 200 - 270 lbs. for a single full desk. The top and base are packaged separately on the pallet, allowing for easier movement of the components. If you do not have a loading dock, we suggest upgrading to Business Lift Gate delivery below at no additional charge.
The delivery agent will park wherever is most convenient at your business and has a device to get the shipment off the truck and to the ground for you. Sometimes they will have a pallet jack that, while unable to go up stairs or steep inclines, may be able to move the shipment a reasonable distance. However, for the most part you will still be required to get the shipment up to and into your office.
The delivery agent will park the freight truck in front of your residence, and you are responsible for getting the items off the truck and into your home. For most customers, this delivery method is manageable with the help of one or two family members, friends or neighbors. Typically, a shipment will weight approximately 200 - 270 lbs. for a single full desk. The top and base are packaged separately on the pallet, allowing for easier movement of the components.
Lift gate delivery is the same as residential standard curbside delivery, but the freight truck has a device to get the shipment off the truck and to the ground for you. Sometimes they will have a pallet jack that, while unable to go up stairs or steep inclines, may be able to get the shipment to your front door or garage. However, for the most part you will still be required to get the shipment up to and into your home.
Limited access locations include schools, military bases, prisons, churches, nursing homes, hospitals, construction sites, storage units, remote farms or ranches, golf courses and country clubs, utility sites, or any business with specific requirements such as certain times when you can't accept deliveries. These locations can vary widely in receiving availability and capability. If any extra charges are incurred, we will inform you as soon as possible and will not proceed with the order until these charges are approved by you.
The following White Glove delivery options require a four-hour delivery window between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday - Friday. We'll send tracking once your order ships, and, depending on your location within the Contiguous US, a typical freight shipment will arrive at its destination terminal in 2-14 business days from shipment. Once your shipment has arrived there, the delivery agent will call to schedule your four-hour window for delivery, or, in the case of Platinum services, assembly. Deliveries and installation outside normal freight hours require prior arrangement and may incur additional fees. Please contact us if you need to schedule delivery or assembly outside of these times, or if your building requires a Certificate of Insurance. COI requirements may result in a fee of up to $50, and failure to alert us beforehand may delay delivery or assembly.
Bronze level delivery means that the delivery agent will bring your shipment up to the first dry area, such as a porch or garage, including up to two flights of stairs (15 steps per flight maximum; contact us for any additional flights). The products will remain in their original packaging with no assembly provided.
Silver level delivery means that the delivery agent will bring your shipment into your room or office of choice, including up to two flights of stairs (15 steps per flight maximum; contact us for any additional flights). The products will remain in their original packaging with no assembly provided.
Platinum level delivery includes delivery to your room or office of choice, as well as assembly of the desk and any desired accessories. This excludes chairs and wire management kits, as well as any electrical or component hookups.

Love this desk
October 30, 2014
The ease of pressing a button to adjust the desk height is a great feature. I'm very happy with the quality of the desk and treadmill. If you plan to work at a variety of heights, the monitor arm is a plus. The online videos were extremely helpful to figure out which options to purchase and how to optimize the wire management system (necessary). My laptop mouse went a bit crazy with electrical interference from the treadmill; this was easily solved by using a wireless mouse. Very happy with this purchase!
Great Desk - As Advertised
June 18, 2014
I've had this desk for about a month now. Love it. Does everything it says it will. Hardest part about setup is hiding all the wires to your PC after it's installed. But hiding wires is tough on any desk setup as most desks have a nest of wires behind them. Get the advanced wire management kit to make hiding wires possible. It matches my other office furniture almost perfectly. I am completely satisfied.
I love my work station!
May 20, 2014
The desk is really well put together. Great design and looks amazing; better than the online pictures. There is nothing better than getting some exercise while working. Instead of sitting most of the day, I now stand or walk almost 6 out of my 8 hour work day. Working on the computer while walking is a small adjustment...I would recommend some sort of gel wrist rest in order to stabilize your hands while typing. The best thing? You don't even realize you're exercising! It's truly awesome!
I LOVE THIS DESK
March 3, 2014
This is a fantastic way to get movement into my day. I am a doctor but see patients only half of the time; the other 4 hours are spent doing administrative work on the computer. I got this desk as an attempt to get over the achiness that I felt at the end of 4 hours of sitting in a desk chair. I'm consistently using it 2 hours/day (the other time spent in meetings, where I now often stand!), logging about 8000 steps/day. I have more energy and feel better at the end of my work day. SETUP: Took about 2 hours, with two other people helping some. You need at least two people to get the desk together. It was easy to do with basic tools. DOWNFALLS: Although the LifeSpan fitness club is a great way to track data, the Bluetooth connection is pathetic--you have to have a Bluetooth-enabled device next to the treadmill console all day for it to record the data. The console does not store any data. I am fairly computer-savvy but the instructions were unhelpful, although customer service at LifeSpan was very helpful. I've decided just to manually add in my steps/calories/mileage at the end of every day, since I'm stepping on/off the treadmill a lot. TheHumanSolution went out of their way to ensure that the desk came to me and was great. If you're concerned about cables hanging down in the back, you should probably purchase the extra cable holders called advanced cable management. It does come with basic cable management. I keep meaning to get around to putting up some cable holders of some type but haven't yet, and it's pretty messy-looking. POSITIVES: Really, about everything else. I love it! I have turned my desk chair into a holder for my bag and coat--I never use it except for eating lunch at my desk. I love that I have presets for sitting/standing/walking. The desk is well-made, sturdy, and difficult to scratch or mar. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Easy way to get 10k steps in a day!
December 16, 2013
Once I began using this set up, I was easily walking 3 hours a day. That translates to well over ten thousand steps at 1.5 mph. One thing to consider is working with a traditional mouse was difficult so I switched to a trackball, but I normally prefer the trackball anyway. The Human Solution also told me that the Evoluent mouse works well for precise mousing while walking because you can anchor the side of your wrist (on the boney part) on a gel wrist rest and this will allow you to keep your hand steady. The desk operates very smoothly and quickly goes up and down. It all looks great and I'm thrilled with all of it.
This changed how I view going to work
October 30, 2013
I have to say that using a treadmill desk at work has changed how I think about going to work. I used to be fine with going to work but now I really am happier that I get to walk while I work. I'm averaging about 4 miles per day and walking at about 2 mph. The UpLift Treadmill Desk is working perfectly.
February 10, 2013
I bought this desk, along with a treadmill and have been happy with it, overall. The shipping was fine, though it took a few weeks before the desk came back into stock. It's a solid piece of furniture, once put together--it feels much sturdier than I thought it would. It looks really great and modern. solid construction and quality materials. The only major issue I had was in taking the hour or so to put the desk together. It's much easier to put this desk together than an Ikea desk. Because I've been traveling, I've only had a chance to spend about a week on the desk and treadmill, but the two work very well together. I found myself walking up to 5-6 miles a day by the end of the week and I suspect that will only go up as I get some practice in.
February 1, 2013
I was a little disappointed when the desk was on back-order, but the customer service was wonderful with scheduling delivery of the rest of my order to coincide with the desk, and then later to track the delivery. I had the treadmill desk for about 3 weeks now and am up to an hour and a half per day, with a goal of 2-3 hours per day. Typing and reading are no problem while walking, although using the mouse is more challenging.
I walk, talk and work with ease
October 5, 2012
I am very pleased with the treadmill desk and use it 5 days a week. I get in anywhere from 4-6 miles per day on the treadmill in usually less than 4 hours. I go anywhere from 1.5mph up to 3 mph on it depending on what I am doing. Most of the time I am going at 1.5mph but when the computer needs to run a long task I will crank it to 3mph while I wait for it to finish.
Great value for the price - would recommend
August 5, 2012
I did a lot of research on sit-to-stand desks before purchasing this one. The Human Solution had the lowest prices I could find and all the functionality works well. I'm super happy with the desk (I got the 79" one) - it's nice looking and has room and support for a heavy printer, two monitors, and assorted other office stuff. However, I was disappointed that the desktop did not come either pre-drilled or with instructions on where to mount the legs/base (I just centered everything, but would have liked to know if there was a better placement to evenly balance the weight). I was very careful when predilling, but despite my best efforts, I still had one screw that went too far in and cracked the top side of the laminate. So, now I have an expensive new desk that will always have a divet.... On the plus side, many companies selling sit-to-stand desks only deliver to locations with a shipping dock and the Human Solution used a freight company that delivered to my residential address. You'll want to have an extra person on-hand to help move the heavy desk and treadmill from where the freight company leaves it. I like having the treadmill, but can't use it for as many hours a day as I thought. I'm usually multi-tasking (doing 1-2 things on the computer, while also being on the phone), and adding the walking is a little too much to handle. But, the treadmill works great when I limit my multi-tasking and focusing on one thing - either a phone conversation or something on the computer. The treadmill isn't silent, but it's pretty quiet hum. I wouldn't use it if giving a formal presentation, but it's fine sound-wise for normal business conversations. The control panel has great, big buttons making it easy to adjust while both working and walking. All-in-all, I am very happy with this purchase and glad to have options to change-up my day - sitting in a chair, sitting on a ball (lowering the desk further than when I'm in a chair), standing (which I do several times a day), walking (which I do ~once a day).
i'm walking and talking
June 7, 2012
I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It was easy to assemble and now I'm walking when I talk on the phone and I do that a lot in my sales role. It's easy to do simple mouse and keyboard tasks. My son is much better at computers (I'm old) and he has no problem typing whole papers and using the mouse while walking. I recommend this to all.
Speed is key to making the most of your UPLIFT Treadmill Desk - Sit-Stand-Walk. Most users find that walking between 1.0 and 2.0 miles per hour is the ideal range to maintain productivity and simultaneously exercise while you work. Walking any faster may inadvertently decrease productivity as you find it harder to concentrate on tasks like typing or talking on the phone. The LifeSpan Treadmill can go as fast as 4.0 MPH for cardio workouts, though you won't get much work done at this level. A 160-lb. person will burn about 200 calories an hour while walking at 2.0 mph.
