Convert Your Treadmill Into a Walk-While-You-Work Desk

Convert Your Treadmill Into a Walk-While-You-Work Desk

Sure, you could spend nearly $5000 for a nicely constructed Steelcase Sit-to-Walkstation to keep in shape while putting in those butt-expanding hours behind the keyboard. But if you already have a treadmill gathering dust in the rec room/garage, you only need spend about $20 to make your own walk-as-your-browse workstation as shown in the clip above.

The hack is pretty much securing a wooden plank across the side arms using Tornado E-Z Ancors most every treadmill ships with. This means no running, but walking and browsing should be no problem, and the project seems simple enough to install or remove depending upon whether you want a leisurely walk while reading Unplggd or a more serious jaunt without the DIY desk.
