Treadmill Fits Under Your Existing Standing Desk

The TR1200-DT3 is designed to work with most standing desks. Simply place the console in a convenient location on your desk and plug the opposite end into the front of the treadmill and its ready to go. The TR1200-DT3 gives you the flexibility to choose the desk you want or use a stand up desk you already own and turn your standing desk into a walking desk. When selecting a desk, remember that a treadmill is approximately 4.5” of additional height above the floor so make sure the maximum height will support your needs plus 4.5”.

The digital LED display shows steps taken, walking time, calories burned, distance traveled and walking belt speed. The weighted console has a safety key that shuts down the treadmill when removed.

Deck Suspension Absorbs Foot Impact

LifeSpan treadmills use 6 independent shocks to hold the walking deck above the frame and absorb impact when your foot strikes the belt. If you plan on walking 10,000 or more steps a day, which we recommend, a good deck suspension will allow you to walk longer with less fatigue and without causing joint pain or injury.

A side benefit to isolating the deck with this type of suspension is a much quieter walking experience because the impact of your foot hitting the deck doesn't resonate to the rest of the treadmill.

Intelli-Guard and Intelli-Step Features

The TR1200-DT3 comes standard with two of LifeSpan trademarked technologies: The built-in Intelli-Guard™ automatically stops the belt if you step off during your walk for added safety and is a major development in protecting treadmill users and those around them. With the Intelli-Guard™, you no longer have to worry about leaving your treadmill running if you have to step off to take a call. When your foot no longer continuously strikes the belt surface for 20 seconds, your treadmill will automatically pause. Intelli-Step™ counts and records the number of steps you take and displays them on the console. More accurate than a pedometer, Intelli-Step automatically detects the impact of your foot striking the treadmill belt.

FoxNews: We Got a Treadmill Desk… Here’s What Happened

The January 2014 issue of Profit shared the following research:

"Sitting is killing us. At least that's what recent studies are warning. Researchers from Britain's Univerity of Leichster; for example, have concluded that sitting more than eight hours a day can raise one's chance of a heart attack or stroke by 147%. That's a touch break for cubicle dwellers... Meanwhile, a receint survey by Sun Life Financial found that Canadian employees consider a sedentary lifestyle to be one of the top two health risks for workers; suggesting they many be ready to start investing in putting staff on their feet. "We have the power to bring the calorie burn of a two-milerun into people's lives; all withing the time they're already of their desks."

Better than I expected... Review by bjm
I was worried about the noise and positioning on an existing desk. It's relatively quiet, I'm in an open area and so far seems to be ok. Speed adjustments are fine, can configure the display (and silence it). There are some options I haven't used yet (USB charging and bluetooth)

Like others have mentioned each time you restart it, it starts on the lowest speed. It would be nice to have it resume the previous speed and ramp up slowly. (Posted on 14-03-13)
Great Investment! Review by Jennifer

If you've been thinking about getting a walking desk, do it!! I bought this TR1200-DT3 treadmill base and got a standing desk from another company and am loving the combo. (The standard LifeSpan desk that can be bought with the treadmill wouldn't work for me without lots of addition to raise up computer monitors to eye level, etc.) The treadmill is solidly built, super quiet (my footsteps make more noise), and as sturdy as anything I've used at the gym.

Working and walking felt a tiny bit awkward for the first 30 minutes or so and after that I kept forgetting I was on a treadmill. I'm typing this at a leisurely 1.1 MPH pace and can pretty much do everything walking that I can when sitting at a desk.

I'm a grad student and work part time from home for a software company and was sitting way too much. I don't have as much time to go to the gym these days, so this is a great low-impact way to stay active, sneak in exercise, and help beat the mid-day energy slump. I'm really happy with the treadmill and am looking forward to using it for years to come. (Posted on 13-03-10)
Wonderful, Lifechanging Product Review by Steve

I've been using the TR1200-DT3 for about 1.5 months, and I absolutely love it. It's built very, very strong and is extremely quiet. I bought this version of the treadmill because I have a built in desk that doesn't move and because I have four monitors--so I can't simply plop a laptop or single monitor up on a desk such as the one that comes with the TR1200-DT5. Also, I want the option to sit when I want to, because I don't think I'll ever be walking 8-10 hours per day (and, in fact, these treadmills only support 6 hours a day).

The treadmill really is quiet. I often participate in conference calls and I use a Polycom speakerphone right from my 11' x 13' home office. No one on the call can hear that I'm walking. The motor itself is virtually silent and the only sound you hear is the belt slipping along the treadmill track (very quiet) and your feet hitting the treadmill. Because you'll be walking slowly, your feet don't make much noise at all (or at least mine don't). I walk barefoot on mine.

Also, it's easy to move. There are wheels on the front end, and all I do when I want to switch between sitting/walking is lift up the back end a bit and roll the treadmill away from my sitting area. I don't even unplug it, so it's easy to do.

I'm currently walking at 1.3 MPH. This may not seem like much, but for me it's a sweet spot because I have to do a lot of thinking for my job and a lot of typing, and this is a comfortable speed. The thing about a treadmill desk is that it's not really about speed--I get speed workouts in when I run and therefore tax my cardiovascular system heavily at that time--it's really about moving your body throughout the day. Walking at a slow pace accomplishes exactly what a treadmill desk is for--getting your body moving. There are a lot of muscles involved in walking at a slow pace. These muscles are all over, too: your feet, calves, thighs, hamstrings, groin, hips, glutes (your butt), obliques...honestly, all the way up to your head. Pain that I used to experience while standing up, say, in a long checkout line has vanished. I've got a pretty strong back but for some reason standing up in a still position would really bother me after even five minutes (and I'd be forced to stretch), and now that pain is gone.

Another thing that I notice in my situation is because I work in the downstairs portion of my home, which tends to be cooler than upstairs. During the colder parts of the year (I'm in the Boston area) I would have to wear a heavy shirt and heavy socks to stay warm, and even then I'd be a little on the chilly side. While walking on the treadmill I wear nothing but a t-shirt and a pair of shorts, with bare feet, and I'm plenty warm.

The biggest hurdle for me was that I have four monitors and a built in desk, and though I was hopeful it wouldn't be difficult, while walking my monitors were a little bit too low for me. This became annoying after walking for a while. I had to stare strongly downward at my main monitor and even my upper monitors were below my line of straight-vision. What I ended up doing was building a monitor stand that can raise/lower at the press of a button. I wrote a detailed blog post about it here, for those that are interested:!/2012/11/BuildingTheUltimateTreadmillDeskPartOne.html. It's a seven part blog post, so hang in there if you think my situation applies to you. I hope my posts inspire someone to go for it, because now I truly love my treadmill desk configuration. Honestly, it's not that hard to do even if you don't have a ton of carpentry skills. I purposefully kept the building of mine simple with the hopes of leading someone else to a great treadmill desk configuration.

Don't hesitate: start walking while you work!!! (Posted on 12-11-18)
