Hey all, I've been walking/working on my treadmill desk for over 2 weeks and I'm lovin' it.  I'm so glad I took the plunge!Here's my setup: I got an IKEA Fredrik desk off of Craigslist for free…Continue

"Amy, thank you for the idea. I received my Confidence treadmill last Friday and set it up in less than an hour. The trickiest part was disconnecting the wire from the circuit board as they apparently glued it in addition to snapping it in. I already…"

"So after three years of regular use, my Confidence treadmill has just expired beyond any hope of repair, and I figured I’d share what I’ve learned from the experience.  First of all, I think it’s best not to remove the handles…"

"I just got my Confidence Treadmill and have set it up. I discovered a way of permanently shutting off the beeping sound that takes about 10 seconds and only requires a flat head screwdriver or equivelant tool. Simply place the scredriver…"

"Hello all. People still look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them about my Walking Desk... I assume I am not alone... I am moving up in the world from a DIY walking desk; To a Ikea Fredrik desk/Confidence Treadmill... I have read everything…"

"I noticed that the fix for turning off the sound wasn't mentioned. I really hated that annoying beeping sound (and so did everyone else in my apartment complex) so I figured out how to disable it. I made a little tutorial for it on my blog,…"

Chuck Paterson replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I purchased one of these mainly because I didn't want to spend the money for a tread desk until I was sure I would keep it up. I weigh around 190 and tried to walk 5+ hours a day at 2 MPH on the confidence. To get 2MPH I had to set up…"

"Fabulous Idea!  What is the height from floor to bottom of treadmill at the front?  I was thinking of using a hospital "over the bed table" for my keyboard and mouse at work.  Wondering if it would fit underneath the front…"

"Carol, I haven't seen Amy's reply to anyone since I got on board months ago. Here is my 2 cents. No, you can not lower the speed than 1 mph. Any desk should do well since you can take the console out of the handle bars. With you being in…"

Mike Reese replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I did the same thing! Have you noticed that the treadmill has a slight incline though? I used it for about 6 hours today and it seemed to be bothering my ankle to walk "slightly" uphill. I put a book to prop up the back and it seemed to…"

"Hi Amy, I had to problem solve to get Confidence Treadmill to Hawai'i - they wouldn't ship - but it is here now and I have a question.  I would like to start slower than 1 mph and then increase.  Do you know if there is any way…"

Jon Drucker replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"I would recommend buying a treadmill that is both quiet AND can adjust for incline.  After all, there's nothing magical or exclusive about Treaddesk's quietness.  It's just a matter of treadmill quality."

Jay Edwards replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Would not recommend the cheaper alternative to the treaddesk. We have 4 treaddesks in our offices (the oldest one is 4 years old)and one of my partners read the post by Amy about this cheaper option and purchased one of the Confidence Power Plus…"

Jon Drucker replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Yes, that's what I was wondering.  It seems you can set the desktop and cross-brace as high as you want (I'd like my desktop at 49-52"), but how would that affect the sturdiness of the desk?  Would it be prong to tip over?…"

"Amy is 5'2", I don't think her setup will work for you. One of the obstacles to this project if to find your keyboard and monitor height. Use boxes, books, or whatever you can find and do the experiment to find your correct height.…"

Jon Drucker replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"Ingenious!  A few questions: At what height did you set the desktop? Isn't the keyboard too close to the monitors?   And how sturdy does it feel? Thanks, and more power to you!"

Ted Cowan replied to Amy's discussion Inexpensive Alternative to TreadDesk Treadmill
"So a change of plans from my last post. After my confidence treadmill began to falter I announced that I was going to dive deep into my pockets and buy the Tread, which I did. Upon doing so, I learned that my wife's company had declined her…"
