    It only took a few pages into reading this book before I was on a treadmill walking my way through the rest of the book! This book is informative in a fun way and is an easy read. The author, Nick Loper, does a great job describing the health risks associated with sitting and shares what some companies are doing to improve the health of their employees. He not only reviews various treadmill desks but offers some great affordable solutions to obtaining one. I would highly recommend this book.

    As a person who has lost weight due to increased walking, and a sit/stand desk user, this book captured my interest.

    Loper offers an excellent overview of everything treadmill desk. Covering history of this work approach, and several success stories, it is hard not to get excited about the idea! All the options are covered – overviews of commercially available treadmill desks to resources for the cost-focused DIY’er. I never knew that compact treadmills for this application are available, an option I am going to research soon. The author even offers tips on how to sell your employer on the idea of implementing walking workstations!

    This book is a fairly quick read, and written in a witty tone that I enjoyed. Definitely recommended if the topic peaks your interest at all.

    Good book… I love my treadmill desk!, April 29, 2013

    This book is a quite comprehensive look at what I’ve personally had work wonders in my life. I wasn’t really someone who needed to lose weight. I was someone who knew sitting at a desk all day was probably wearing on me physically and mentally; sitting all day certainly wasn’t helping my posture or my tension headaches.

    So I went the cheap route and built my own desk, which was fun, and I was up and walking pretty quickly. Though my desk looked pretty good, I now realize that the downside of building your own is that it probably won’t look as professional as a real manufactured product, so take that into consideration depending on what your office environment is like. If you have clients coming by, then you would probably be better served ponying up a few extra for something that “fits in” to the office environment. But if it’s just a home office or a private office where you’re not worried about looks, then build away!

    Within a week or two I was already noticing a difference in my posture, which had always been bad. I first noticed it when I caught my reflection in a window while waiting in line… I wasn’t slouching! So that was great.

    Good book on a great topic that seems to be catching on…
