Sitting is the new smoking! But with my walking desk, I no longer worry about all the health problems that come from sitting all day. And it’s the ultimate in multitasking, because while I’m working, I get benefits like more energy, better mood, and healthier weight – all of which would require an hour or more of walking each day.

In this short video, I address some of the common questions about a walking desk (also known as a treadmill desk).

  • Is it hard to work on a computer while walking?
  • How fast do you walk?
  • Is it safe to walk on the treadmill while working?
  • Does the noise bother other people?
  • Can you move the treadmill out of the way when needed?
