It is apparently an up and coming trend. Personally I think I would find it hard to concentrate on work. It is a tread-desk or better called a Walk station. The Walkstation, which a Dr. Levine developed , costs about $4,000 and comes in 36 laminate finishes with an ergonomically curved desktop. Its quiet motor is designed for slow speeds. People are putting in the miles while they work. Is it just me or is this a bit weird? Do you think you could multi-task like this? http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/18/health/nutrition/18fitness.html?no_interstitial

Good lord I don't think I could do that I would have to hold on to something or I would be falling off the back of it and what happens if they get a Charlie horse in their leg? Yikes..That is alot of miles to rack up on a treadmill at a office..I know I couldn't do it. I would just have to be one of those that spins their lunch hour exercising in a office gym..which would be the less costly thing to do..and breaks..and maybe even after work..better then all day.

That would be hard to use, I think. :)

I don't think I would get much work done on a treadmill all day long. I would be begging for a chair just to be able to sit down and get some actual work done. I would be too distracted.

I wouldn't be able to concentrate, either... But then again, I don't have a desk job so I run around all day anyway... I do think it's a bit weird, working out at your work(?)... Muti-tasking is one thing, that's going a bit too far... But then whatever works for people... It just won't work for me...

I saw that yesterday and I must admit it threw me for a loop. I'd be so busy walking or running that I wouldn't be able to get any work done. Not to mention, who wants to exercise in their office attire? I'm all for multitasking but that is a little to much for me. I'd settle for a treadmill in the break room or something like that, but definitely not one at my desk.
