How have I not known about this? This really was the next logical step in the fight against obesity and in gaming. A desk, on top of a treadmill. It’s so simple. If I was a “larger” human and needed to lose weight without sacrificing videogames or my computer, I’d get this bad boy in a heartbeat, that’s if my heart was still beating.
Paris over at EpicReviewsTech has a TrekDesk and it helped him lose a lot of weight, check out the video below. “TrekDesk has helped me to lose over 40 lbs and improve my health significantly. I play StarCraft with my brother nightly and when using the desk (TrekDesk) I don’t even realize I am walking,” stated Paris, of EpicReviewsTech.
He lost weight, while playing StarCraft. My head hurts just thinking about how wrong that sentence sounds, but it’s true.
“While many user stories focus on the work application of the TrekDesk Paris’ comments reflect a growing awareness among adults that combining inactivity at work with inactivity at home is a recipe for a health disaster,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. “Walking while gaming or engaging in any online activity is one solution to this expanding problem.”
Designed to fit any existing treadmill and is fully adjustable, the TrekDesk can fit into most lifestyles. Lose weight, maintain health, prevent diseases, fight obesity, play videogames, do work on your computer, eat a
cheeseburger healthy snack, watch tv, all while walking on a treadmill. You can even have it at your workplace, if you’re one of those people who REALLY don’t care what other people think.
All jokes aside, this thing is really neat and it’s just a fantastic idea. However, at a price of almost $500 I can not say this thing is affordable, if a treadmill came with it I would have bought 3 by the time I finished writing. If you’re looking to lose weight and don’t want to give up some World of Warcraft time to do so, then this is the product for you.
