Keep in mind that this product is only warranted for a maximum runtime of 3 hours per day (and in a residential environment only).
Does the model come with this model? If so, I’m in for one.
For $300 less, I got a gym grade, $4,000 treadmill used and then built a basic desk around it. I would stay away from something that only lets you run it for 3 hours a day
We have the TR1200DT (a pair of them actually) in our office. They get used pretty heavily. While I can’t attest to the durability of the 800, ours are booked about 75% Monday - Friday.
As far as the actual walking goes, you get very used to walking on them after a few minutes. We do 2MPH while working so we can also be on conference calls, actually working, etc. Though, I still get that just gotten off of roller skates feeling when I’m done.
Most of us laughed when they installed them. Heck I think someone even thought it was an April Fool’s day joke, but they are in fact pretty nice.
As far as the “use for three hours a day”, that is most likely what the math breaks out to - warranty / 3 hours per day = expected minimum time before something breaks.
The 3 hours per day use, if you’re using it for a walk at work at home setup, is a little bit on the weak side.
Also, if you’re using it to get fit, then, take your $1000 and get an awesome gym membership where you’re not pigeon-holed into only using one piece of workout equipment.
You should probably find a balance between the two. One of the more interesting observations from recent “sitting death” research: “Even women who exercised regularly risked shortening their lifespan if most of their daily hours were sedentary ones.”
So if you’re in a desk job that keeps you tied to a computer all day, you want to find something that’ll keep you moving during work hours (treadmill desk, bike desk, etc.) but also do some other routine exercise (gym or home) for cardio, strength, etc. Because apparently the gym visits can’t save you if you’re still stuck in a chair for 8+ hours a day.
This is a real good price. Amazon has offered it at $1300 for 6 months and just dropped it down to $1200 in the past week.
I initially thought that this Woot one was going to be a refurb, but it is new. Yay. At $1,000, this a terrific price for the treadmill and desk.
This isn’t a bad deal but I would rather have it without the desk and buy a power height adjustable desk like the geekdesk… Also, I want the TR1200-DT3. As mentioned before that can run pretty much all day for walking. Three hours a day doesn’t burn the calories like walking all day can.
My previous treadmills were the TreadDesk and generic tread that I converted for treadmill desk use. I’ve managed to burn out both of them over the last 6 years. But the weight loss was worth it. I went from 210lbs to 180lbs in three months with no change in diet.
I own this unit, having skeptically purchased it from Woot in January.
As background, I have purchased literally hundreds of commercial treadmills over the past 25 years. I have this unit in my office and have a commercial treadmill in my home workout space.
This is a very impressive unit for the money. The desk is solid and much sturdier than I expected. The treadmill is solid enough for what it is intended for. It isn’t intended to run on and it doesn’t incline.
Based on my experience buying, operating, and servicing commercial treadmills, I would recommend this unit for anyone who is considering this purchase.
I don’t understand. The wheels on my chair are going to wear out quickly rolling on the treadmill all day.
I work in the private tech field where we are expected to work 18 hours a day (with no extra compensation, I might add). I would need this thing to run at least 10 hrs/day minimum. This treadmill seems to be targeted for the an environment, say gov’t or public sector, where a person is lucky to put in 5 or 6 hours a day. I will have to pass, although, I wish I were part of the workforce that only works a limited number of hours a day. These 18 hours days are really killing me, and without this treadmill, I’m going down even faster. FML
