Which LifeSpan Desk Treadmill is Right For You?
Now that the standing desk revolution is in full swing, people have started to ask us how they can stay even more active while working. One of the coolest ways to get moving at work is to add a treadmill to your desk, and LifeSpan’s treadmills are some of the best on the market. LifeSpan offers two different desk treadmill models to meet different space limitations, user needs and budgets.
Both of LifeSpan’s standing desk treadmills include many great features such as a tethered desktop console that calculates distance, time, step count and calories burned, all viewable on a built-in LED display. This console is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing you to wirelessly connect to your Bluetooth-ready computer to automatically record and track results online with the included four-month trial membership to the LifeSpan Fitness Club.
There are some differences between the two LifeSpan desk treadmill models. The lightweight LifeSpan TR800 DT-3 Standing Desk Treadmill has a 300 lbs weight capacity, six compression shocks, and a 52” x 18” belt that allows it to fit into small office spaces with ease. LifeSpan’s unique Intelli-Guard technology automatically stops the belt if you step off the treadmill, and the quiet 2 HP motor is rated for up to three hours of daily use at speeds of up to 4.0 mph.
For heavy-duty use, there’s the LifeSpan TR1200-DT3 Standing Desk Treadmill. The TR1200 has all the great features of the TR800, but it includes a sturdier frame designed for intensive use. The weight limit of the treadmill has been increased to support up to 350 lbs, and a 2.25 HP motor provides increased power for longer use. The size of the improved two-ply belt has also been increased to 56” x 20”, providing more space to walk on a more durable belt. These heavy duty use features make the TR1200 ideal for users intending to use their treadmill for more than three hours a day.
Of course, if you don’t have a standing desk yet, LifeSpan’s great treadmills can be ordered with one of our gorgeous UPLIFT native wood or laminate desks or even a complete ergonomic desk package. Human Solution’s UPLIFT 800 desk has an extended height adjustment range, allowing you to position your work at the right height whether you’re sitting, standing or walking.
