Go Treadmill Desk

Go Treadmill Desk

  • 38.6 inch clearance to fit even largest home/office/gym treadmills
  • Compact design, small footprint to fit small spaces (48″ width, 23″ depth)
  • Height adjustable for users 5″ to 6″6′ tall. Can be used as a standing desk as well
  • Sturdy construction to ensure stability at any height. Desktop supports weight of up to 60 pounds
  • A set of wheels to easily roll away. Light weight: only 41 pounds

Go Treadmill Desk was designed to be simple, elegant and very compact with a limited footprint that doesn’t exceed that of existing office or home treadmills. Despite being the lightest treadmill desk on the market at 41 pounds, it is exceptionally stable, even when its legs are fully extended: the frame is powder-coated steel and the wood desktop is reinforced by steel beams. An innovative stability bar connects the desk feet and rests under the deck of the treadmill. Go Treadmill Desk easily fits multiple computers and leaves more than enough room for other office accessories. It can be easily rolled away from the treadmill using its pair of cleverly concealed wheels, and used as a standing desk, when the treadmill itself is used by another person. A study published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) reports that users burned an average of over 190 calories per hour walking at a speed of just 1 mph (compared to a 72 calorie per hour burn when sitting.) Go Treadmill Desk can be used comfortably while walking at a speed of up to 2.6 mph (the inventor of Go Desk uses it at 2.3 mph 4-6 hours per day.) If used for just 2-4 hours per day, weight loss of 40-65 pounds can be achieved within a year, as reported by BJSM. When walking this slowly, it is more than comfortable to use a computer and a phone. Go Treadmill Desk height is adjustable for comfortable use by those ranging in height from 5′; to 6’6″. It can be easily set up in 10-30 minutes (tools included.) Go is the lightest treadmill desk on the market (41 lb) and it carries a generous warranty.

    Solid value for the money!

    I use a treadmill desk at work (one of the ones on sale here on Amazon too), but lately I’ve been able to work from home 2-4 days per week, so I’ve been thinking about a treadmill desk for my home office for a while, though reluctant due to several factors: price, form, etc. Here is my thinking: Exerpeutic: bad Consumer Reports review – this thing is deemed not safe and it’s not even adjustable. TrekDesk is just enormous – waaay too big for my home and LifeSpan ($1500?? Really??) is for treadmills that don’t have control panels. Then there is SurfShelf, but who wants a sensitive electronic device like a laptop shaking with every step? You don’t have to be in High Tech to know this to be a pretty bad idea I don’t want my desk to be attached to the treadmill.

    So, I found this GO Desk on sale, took a plunge and I am pleased with my choice:

    Shipment: got it pretty quickly in a non-descript large box (some branding on it would be useful), though it was much lighter than I’d expected.

    Assembly: I doubted the stated assembly time, though in the end it did take me only about 20 minutes to put it together and it would be more like 15 min, if not for a few distractions. The only 2 required tools were included, which I guess is pretty standard nowadays. The unit assembles easy, despite a few minor imperfections. There a few different size screws and I was a bit confused as to which screw goes where, but not a huge deal, since instructions cover that. Still, screws should probably be marked somehow.

    Instructions: they have no words – sort of Ikea like – no complaints here, they are plenty easy to understand.

    Installation for use: the desk is quite light and has a set of wheels, so it was easy to roll it and situate it over my treadmill, despite the cross bar that connects the feet (it goes under the deck.) My treadmill deck has hydraulic lift pumps, so I just lifted the deck with 1 one of my feet for 1 second while rolling the crossbar under the deck behind the deck legs – rest is easy. I guess if your deck is super heavy and it doesn’t have hydraulics, you will need one person helping you to situate the desk for the first time use. Btw, when l shopped for a treadmill, I recall not seeing hydraulic pumps on heavy duty “gym size” treadmills only.

    Construction: got to say – the desk is way more solid than it looks (legs and support bars are thin, but they are steel.) I’d say, construction is smart:

    a) The desk fits over my treadmill arms easily, with plenty to spare for wider treadmills
    b) desktop has all the space I need for a laptop, some papers, books – I can’t see myself running out of space
    c) has an ergo cutout in the front and no sharp edges
    d) 2 support bars – I don’t know what people would want to keep on the desktop, but it would definitely support more than enough weight
    e) I like that’s it’s not too deep, so I can reach my treadmill panel and my water bottle very easily

    Adjusting: this wasn’t my favorite part since the top part of the telescopic leg could be easier to slide up and down – I would suggest some lubricant here. Luckily, you do it once, lock in place and forget about it. I am 5’5” and it adjusts to a comfortable height for me. My nephew who is about 6’4”, played around with it and it adjust to his height fine. Surprisingly, there is very little lateral wobble at that height – it pretty much non-existent.

    Color: I think it looks good – perhaps a bit underwhelming, but I like that’s it’s not loud and keeps focus away from itself.

    Multi-use: I’ve tried using it as a “standing desk”, separately from the treadmill, and it’s fine. The crossbar that connects the desk feet takes some getting used to – it’s not right under my feet, but close, so you have to be careful not to run into it if you are barefoot. I am sure that without it, the desk would rock when fully extended.

    Use: I can do pretty much anything walking 2.5 miles per hour or less, which is quite slow. I can also walk 3-3.5 miles per hour, but comfortable typing can get problematic at that speed (this has nothing to do with the desk itself.)

    I will post an update in a few months.

    I am quite excited about this desk – been looking at options for weeks, couldn’t decide between several others till I found this desk… on sale, which helps. I hardly have any time for activities outside of work, so being able to get workouts out of the way at the same time as work at home or watching some videos is awesome!

    I asked my neighbor to help me assemble it, but watching him do it, I realize that I could have easily done it myself – too him about 15 min: the instructions were in the style of my fav furniture store Ikea (just pics.)
    Pros: rock solid (all steel base), yet light, right-sized (so, it takes up just the right amount of space on the floor and has a ton of space on the desktop), ez assembly, nice shape and color.
    Cons: a small con is that without some grease, the legs take a bit of effort to adjust to the right height, so my friend applied some grease and it’s ok now, plus I doubt that I will have to adjust it that often – I will most likely be the only user.

    Walked for a few hours yesterday at about 1.9 miles per hour – surprisingly, you can do EVERYTHING at that speed – so it’s a pretty awesome concept. I can see myself getting hooked and losing some serious weight soon.

    I logged in to Amazon to buy a TrekDesk (even though I hate how huge it is) and after some last ditch effort searching saw this “Go” desk – looks like it’s new on here. Price and its compact size alone did it for me. Got it 2 days ago and have used it for a total of about 7-8 hours so far.

    I am a mechanical idiot, so was kinda dreading having to assemble it, but did it in 25 minutes or so. I suggest paying attention on the instructions sheet to the different screws – that messed me up a bit.

    The unit is very well built and has nearly zero wobble (I was worried that it would wobble as much as TrekDesk wobbles, from buyers’ reviews). As mentioned, I love that it doesn’t take much space and is easy to roll away, though if you plan on moving it in and out daily, keep in mind the metal piece that connects the feet and goes under the treadmill.

    Overall, aside from minor assembly annoyances it’s a great desk – I would recommend it. Thanks.
