Working from home has become the norm. I think it can be seen as a blessing and curse. A blessing that you get to rock the “business mullet”…you know professional up top and pajama pants below… but also a curse in that you are at your desk ALL DAY for endless meetings which means a sedentary lifestyle, aka LESS MOVEMENT.
Once I transitioned into full-time fitness and coaching from home I ran into the same issue. Working on the back end of my business meant hours and my desk. I began to notice a new type of fatigue and soreness from sitting all day. My posture was starting to round forward and my back and core felt weak and my hips were always tight!
Now, keep in mind I still do commit my daily hour workout - but that was just about the ONLY movement I was getting all day. That means I was averaging less than 3,000 steps a day (I can’t believe I just admitted that on the internet). I tried setting reminders to get up and walk around the block or stretch but I swear they always came at the most inconvenient stopping time or mid-meeting. I knew that something needed to change, so I started researching some desk treadmills that would not break the bank.
I found the Gallelife 2 in 1 Under Desk Treadmill on Amazon for under $250 and I jumped on it! After spending 2 weeks using it at my desk I have a list of pros and cons of both the general product and my personal results to help you decide if you should make the investment in one. Spoiler alert…I think you should.
