I've always noticed that I do my best creative problem solving and original thinking when I am in motion, but until I got my Unsit treadmill desk, most of my best ideas got away from me. Now, I can remain in a flow state of optimum thinking as long as I want, and the back and neck problems I had from years of being a psychotherapist are a thing of the past. Unsit is a great product and it's a great company to do business with as well. I only wish I had found them sooner.
My journey began six years ago. I was experiencing lower back pain when sitting for long periods of time. I upgraded my chair to an adjustable Aeron chair. My new chair was very comfortable, but my posture remained poor and pain returned to my lower back.
Around the same time, I read several articles about how “sitting was killing us” so I decided to “save myself” and with a new standing desk. Wow! What a positive difference standing made on my lower back pain, but after a while, I started feeling aches, pains and stiffness in other places. Getting up out of my chair helped but standing turned out to be only part of the solution. I was committed to working on my feet, but I needed to add some movement as standing felt static and my legs ached.
Coincidentally, my brother’s company, ActivEd had produced a new program called WalkAbouts, an active learning platform for schools. WalkAbouts was further proof of the positive physical and mental benefits of moving compared to sitting and it validated my thoughts about moving while working.
So I started researching under desk treadmills. I wanted a treadmill that was built for slow speed walking. To fit with my desk I needed a treadmill wider than a traditional treadmill and much shorter. I thought I’d never find what I needed, until I came across the UnSit. In my first week with the WALK-1 Under Desk Treadmill I averaged 5 miles a day and I can already tell how movement solves the downsides to standing. I can do everything I normally would do at my desk while walking. The iOS app is a great motivator as it tracks your progress. Rob and the entire UnSit company have been awesome to work with!
I work at my computer all day long, and often get headaches from sitting the entire time (and of course staring at the screen). Since I've bought the UnSit treadmill, I no longer get headaches while I'm at work! Beyond that, I'm easily hitting my personal step goal for the day, and feel good about sitting down and relaxing in the evening, because I've been walking all day at work. It is the best purchase I've made this year.
I have been coveting the Unsit desk ever since I saw a demo a few years ago. This desk was unique in it's size, design, philosophy, and delivery. I was so impressed with the passion & science behind the product, the local family owned business, and the attentive customer service BEFORE I ever made the purchase. They were genuinely interested in my learning everything necessary about treadmill & standing desks and there was never any pressure -- just very helpful information. I learned that the disadvantages of sitting all day are FAR more than posture and lack of exercise. Read up on some of the latest science on the impact of long hours of sitting and it's quite compelling. The financial investment kept me hesitant at first, but now that I have finally purchased the desk and have been using it for 3 months I am SO HAPPY !! It is worth every penny and then some. It's rare when you feel that a single purchase has really changed your life. I'm in the software and RE sales business and I have spent decades and LONG hours in front of a computer. Now, what a difference in my work day, my mood, & my physical well being!!
There is a mild learning curve in the first couple weeks as I type and walk (conference calls and reading emails are easy, and fantastic to be walking and talking). I am notoriously uncoordinated, but very soon I had the hang of it and it's great. Gotta love a new motor skill to add to my list :) My Unsit desk is next to a large window so I get a nice perspective when I'm walking and talking, and but then I appreciate that I can get focused on my computer in an ergonomic way. I love that I can move the desk to different heights, and the treadmill moves at different speeds. The speeds are created for walking and working, so I set the dial a bit slower when writing/typing, and move it up when talking/reading. The UnSit App helps me track my mileage during the day. Wow. I hope that this kind of desk becomes the standard of the workplace.
I'm a 45 year old consultant who is desk bound 90% of my workday from my home office. I wanted to turn 8-12 hours of daily sitting into at least 4-6 hours of walking. I was dreading putting a LONG and ugly black treadmill under my very cool looking standing desk. Not to mention the floor space I would loose. I was "just" about to pull the trigger on a $1,500 iMovR ThermoTread, when I thought I would try searching Google one more time for "shortest under desk treadmill". UnSit came up and I knew immediately this product was designed with my needs in mind. The wide but short platform is exactly the right size. It looks great compared to anything else out there. The motor makes no sound...zero disruptive sound. A small amount of sound comes from the friction of the belt as you step on it. The controller is analog and I love that. I tap it and I'm walking. No booting it up or connecting it to the internet. It goes when you hit the control knob. A huge bonus is that you can connect their Android app to the tread directly through Bluetooth. I've tracked over 8,000 steps that I've taken today alone...as I write this review. The app connects automatically. You don't have to mess with it. You can leave the room, stand still, or keep walking and it keeps track of all three types of activities. I can't say enough good things about this product. OK, there is one unexpected thing that isn't great. I actually feel a bit dizzy after walking for about an hour. When I take a break and step out of the room, I feel like I'm still in motion. It's a bit like feeling car sick. I'm hoping I adjust to that because I do not want to give this up.
This treadmill is great! My mood and energy level is improved compared to when I sat all day. The dimensions of this treadmill are much different than a traditional fitness treadmill and it makes total sense when I put it at my standing desk. People told me it would be too short but its not. I walk slow so I never get near the back of the treadmill. It would be difficult to do desk work walking any faster so it’s perfect. It might be a good idea to splurge for the adjustable height desk. I put it under a fixed standing desk and had to prop that up a bit because the treadmill made me 6” taller. The App is cool, a little finicky to re-connect after you have been away, but it works and its inspiring to see how many steps you’ve taken. Double check all of your desk dimensions before you buy to make sure it’s going to fit. The is MUCH better than standing all day.
I am a big fan of Unsit, and hugely grateful for the stellar product they have designed. I had a static stand up desk for about a year before upgrading to my Unsit desk and treadmill. I remain amazed at the difference in how I feel during the work day. With my adjustable desk and treadmill, I have all the options I need. I can stand, walk, and sit (occasionally). Some of the benefits to my health and well-being that I have noticed are; 1) A reduction in my stress level, 2) I am more alert, 3) My energy level is higher and steadier. I couldn't be happier!
