Working @ 100 Calories Per Hour
I'd like to make sure I can do my work while walking, but I haven't found any places where I can try out working and walking. any suggestions of where I could go in NYC that has a computer set up?
I don't know specifically about NYC but some of the exercise equipment stores sometimes has treadmill desks. I think the only specific treadmill desk store is around Seattle WA.
thanks steve! i called one store, but they don't have computer setups, just treadmills. I wonder how other people tried it out or whether they just bought the materials without trying it out...
I doubt many places have computer setups. Maybe if you brought in your laptop computer (preferably with a separate keyboard and mouse) they would let you try it that way. It might not be perfect but would give you some kind of an idea.
I have mentioned this before but I really like my Kinesis Freestyle 2 keyboard on my treadmill desk. It allows me to have my hands further apart than typical with most other keyboards. I find this much more natural when on a treadmill.
Hope you can figure it out before you buy. I am not sure your application but even using a treadmill desk a few hours a day can make a difference. I am guessing with your being in NYC you have limited room for both a regular desk and a treadmill desk?
Yes, it's true about the space being limited. i'll have to look into the smaller treadmills.
you might be right about bringing a laptop with keyboard and mouse to an equipment store. (unless anyone from new york has an idea to post here).
thanks for that keyboard advice.
If space is limited like I think it is, I would suggest you consider splurging for a desk that is adjustable in height. That way you can use the same desk for both sitting, standing and the treadmill.
In my configuration I have 2 desks and monitors and go from one to the other but probably have more space than you do.
