Considering a treadmill


It will have to be a smaller profile one, but I think i've got enough room to install a treadmill desk

(maybe something like this  http://www.trekdesk.com/ ) if I remove a recliner.

That leaves me with only one recliner and one desk chair for seating, but I'm single and don't entertain at all. And I'm a full timer but not a traveler, I'm mostly parked for months at a time.

Most of my days are spent working on-line and many days I am too busy to get to the gym.

I'm not thrilled at all with the thought of a treadmill in my living space, but if I can walk a few miles a day while studying I guess that's a good thing.

Anyone else use a treadmill?

Like you I spend most of my days on-line, working, at least M-F. I've gotten pretty good at sneaking in a "lunch hour" walk, now that might be at 11 am one day, 2 pm the next and 5 PM the next day, etc, etc. We try to stay places where we have at least a chance of an interesting walk/hike in state/county or national forests. It totally depends on connectivity, but I shudder to even think about a treadmill or health club again. They were "things" I gladly gave up for this lifestyle and the ability to move every 2-6 weeks and follow reasonable weather. Are you able to be in climates that might allow you to get a daily walk in reasonable weather?

Personal opinion here. I wouldn't go there. Better to work in an outside walk like NWescapee said. I can't make myself go upstairs in the sticks and bricks to use the treadmill when we are at home. Doh.   Pat K

There are researchers and health experts who say there are real advantages to the treadmill "walking" workstations. As a person who has trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time, I would be concerned about safety... much less my typing accuracy!

I would have to try it before buying. My DH has a basic treadmill (no motor) and the belt won't move for me, I'm too short and too light. I have to look at my monitor and write while working and would be afraid of losing my balance. When it comes to physical activity like walking, talking and taking notes, I'm definitely not a multi-tasker... Some people love it, some don't.
