These 9 Best Treadmill Desks Let You Walk While You Work

Walk off those calories and meet deadlines simultaneously.


Spend most of your day at a desk? We feel your pain (literally). Let's make sitting while working a thing of the past. Sure, a standing desk is great for improving your posture, but those won't help you get any closer to your goal of 10,000 steps every day. With a treadmill desk, you can walk and burn calories while you work.

Dan Gaz, a physical activity and assessment program manager at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program in Rochester, Minnesota, told Forbes that treadmill desks are a great way to incorporate more movement into normally sedentary situations, adding that "your low metabolism may be caused by your job, rather than your genes." Exercise has also been proven to increase the production of neurochemicals and boost neuron numbers to improve memory and thinking abilities.

A treadmill desk is a perfect solution to help you achieve more movement throughout your workday. When you’re shopping for one, keep in mind that you can mix and match components. As long as your standing desk has a high clearance and no crossbars for added support, chances are it'll work with an under-the-desk treadmill.

To make your search easier, we've listed our favorite under-desk treadmills. It's worth mentioning that few include the treadmill and the desk, so you may need to pick and choose depending on your needs and budget.

Best Overall
Unsit Treadmill Desk
InMovement inmovement.com

Whether you're in search of a treadmill desk for employees to share at the office, or you just need something for the house that you can trust, the new InMovement Unsit will do the job. Sure, it's pricey, but it's an incredibly sturdy combo that will last for years.

The commercial-grade treadmill has a silent motor that won't drown out your meeting, and it has a unique design unlike any other treadmill desk we've seen. Rather than being long and rectangular, it has a squarish design. Longer treadmills can be potential trip hazards since they stick out of busy walkways.

The Unsit features a Bluetooth app that tracks your steps, distance, and calories. We appreciate that some of its parts are backed by a lifetime warranty and that it supports up to 400 pounds. Our only complaint is that we wish it were a little faster, since this one tops out at just 2 miles per hour.

The One That Comes With a Desk

This model even features Bluetooth speakers that you can pair with your phone to keep you motivated while you work and walk.

A Reliable and Whisper-Quiet Model

This treadmill includes a control console that can be placed on any desk, which features a USB charging port for your electronics. If you want a slightly more durable model, opt for the TR5000-DT3 or the commercial-grade TR5000-DT7 instead.
