DIY Treadmill Desk Guide

WorkWhileWalking has been the #1 resource for DIY treadmill desk enthusiasts for almost as long as the concept has been around. We’ve helped thousands of users customize their own treadmill desk workstations, and we’re here to help you, too. The articles collected here feature our best advice on the subject—but the expertise doesn’t stop there. If you’re still looking for guidance after reading through our DIY guides don’t hesitate to ping us on LiveChat (or call us) to talk to a DIY pro!

In these articles we offer up all you need to know to build a really solid treadmill desk, but it might be a good idea to take a look at some examples of others’ first, just to see what not to do. Some will appear to be properly engineered, stable, ergonomically correct and decently aesthetic. Those are, to be candid, rare to find. More likely you’ll see contraptions built out of scrap lumber that are dangerously unstable with horrendously bad ergonomic settings, but are really, really cheap. As DIYers ourselves we can certainly appreciate the desire to “just get something going” without doing a lot of research and planning first, but trust us, when it comes to building your own treadmill desk, a little bit of advance planning will go a long way towards making it a successful experience.

Of course if you decide to go the conventional route and buy a commercially-produced treadmill desk, be sure to check our all our reviews, starting with the comprehensive Integrated Treadmill Desk Reviews. Or, if you already have a good, stable, height-adjustable desk, check out our comprehensive Standalone Office Treadmill Base Reviews to complete your system.  And if you’ve already got the base but need a good desk that’ll reach high enough, and be stable enough for using in a walking desk workstation setup, check our our comprehensive Standing Desk Reviews.
