17 Treadmills Desks Designed To Help You Walk Miles While You Work
We all spend too much time sitting these days, which research has shown to be harmful to our bodies in more ways than one. And while it’s recommended to sit less and move more, it’s not always easy to get out of your home or office to stretch your legs. Enter desk treadmills, which make it easier to get some steps in while still catching up on all your emails, letting you be more efficient and healthier during your workday.

Whatever option you prefer, here are 17 of the best treadmill desks to make it easier to turn working from home into working out (while working) from home.
