Director of Wealth Management, Evergreen|GaveKal
"I absolutely love my WALK-1 TREADMILL DESK, it has changed my entire mentality about going to work at the office. Within my job responsibilities, I'm fortunate that I'm able to pretty much work anywhere that has an internet connection. And, in the past, I strongly preferred working at my home office to eliminate distractions. Now, you can't keep me out of my office at work unless it's absolutely required.
"I feel more focused working on my treadmill desk. I have more energy throughout the day than I can ever remember having. And, if I'm too busy to work out, I'm certainly comforted by walking on the treadmill as much as possible.
"When I first purchased the WALK-1 I assumed there would still be tasks that required I sit to complete. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I can do everything that I need to accomplish throughout the day while walking. I can write thank you letters or even long and complex e-mails if necessary, walking hasn't hindered me in anyway. In fact, it's gotten to a point where co-workers are shocked to find me I sitting.
"I'm a true convert and an UnSitter for life.”
Director of Construction, Pacific West Builders Inc.
Simi Valley, California
"I am a Construction Manager and was spending way too many hours sitting in my car and at my desk. I wanted a healthier lifestyle. I bought the WALK-1 TREADMILL DESK for my office here in Simi Valley and right away the impact was positive. I feel stronger, healthier, have more energy and I'm sharper in the afternoon. Instead of sitting at a desk 8 - 10 hours/day I am now standing or walking.
I like the UnSit App too. I found it super easy to use and it helps me stay motivated. I set small goals each day like 7,000 steps and get excited when I cross those thresholds. In addition to having more energy and not being tired at the end of these, I find I’m getting more work done. The WALK-1 platform dimensions fit into my office better than a traditional treadmill would. I’m very happy with it."
Director of Sales, Trunk Club
"Keeping my Trunk Club clients looking sharp can be a lot of stress I’m on the phone and replying to emails all day. Nothing slows me down more then being stuck in a chair. When our CEO Bryan Spaly bought an WALK-1 TREADMILL DESK for our office here in Culver City California I was thrilled.
Not everyone in the office uses it but I’m on it a lot, replying to emails, returning phone calls, searching online for new ideas. I love that its wider and shorter and doesn’t look like a piece of gym equipment - it fits with our decor. While I still maintain a sitting desk, having a place to walk at work is indispensable to my lifestyle."
Founder & CEO, Desk Yogi
"I own Desk-yogi.com, an online program for helping people with desk jobs get some movement in their work day. I'm always trying new things and was searching for ways to get a break from sitting all day. I wanted a change of pace in my personal life as well. I was looking for something to help me get more movement in my work day. I chose the WALK-1 TREADMILL for my stand up desk because it looked cool and has a unique shape, much wider and shorter than a fitness treadmill. The width allows me to use my whole desk.
"I do wish it went faster and it is a bit noisy but does seem quieter than a treadmill in a gym. I like the App, it has a clean simple interface but I have had to re-launch it a few times to re-connect, but once up and running its motivating to see your step count.
"Since I was already using a standing desk, I didn’t have any trouble using the treadmill all day. I do pause and stand a lot and I take sitting breaks for lunch and to meet with people. I'd say I'm on it 80% of the day and sitting 20%."
"I am a designer here at Unisource. The owner brought in the WALK-1 TREADMILL DESK for everyone to try. Only a few of us are using it so far. I have a fixed standing height desk and a stool for when I need to sit. When I am feeling tired I will transfer my laptop to the WALK-1 TREADMILL DESK and walk for a while. Which is awesome because I can continue my work and actually burn some calories at the same time.
"I draft a lot of floor plans in AutoCAD so I keep the speed at the lowest but can open it up to a fast walk when I am on the phone. I’d say I use it three of four days per week. It’s very quiet, treadmill is short but wide enough so I can use the whole width of the desk. Also there is an app that track your steps which you can sync to your Fitbit!"

"I love this Treadmill Desk! Before, when I did my office work at a sitting desk, I would have to go outside on walking breaks to re-energize. If I didn’t I would get tired in the afternoon and doze off at my desk. But now I’m always up and moving at my desk. My circulation has improved, I’m sharper mentally and I’m getting more done. I’m burning more calories too which is an added bonus. These desks should be mandatory in all corporate office environments!"
