NordicTrack Unveils Treadmill Desk at CES 2015
Posted on January 10, 2015
We have all read the alarming articles that point out the dangers of sitting. They warn that you are going to die if you sit to much but sitting is something most of us do a great deal of, especially at work. The articles have led to the rise of treadmill desks as a solution. The desks allow users to work and walk at the same time. NordicTrack unveiled its new treadmill desk, the iFit NordicTrack Desk Treadmill, at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.NordicTrack warns in a press release that "sitting is the new smoking." This seems to be exaggerating the risk but it is probably true that many people need to sit less. NordicTrack says its new treadmill enables users to walk or run while working at speeds up to 10 mph. The treadmill can have an incline of up to 10%. The desk height can also be adjusted. The treadmill folds up when not being used so it can be kept out of the way when you only want to work. The desk costs $1,799 and can be purchased here on nordictrack.com.
The treadmill also contains the company's iFit technology. This enables you to track your progress. You can also customize your workout to meet your goals. Other iFit features include replicate real-life runs with Google Maps and training with Jillian Michaels.
NordicTrack also created a treadmill dance video. The video stars YouTube celebrities and features 45 treadmills synchronized using iFit technology. Take a look:
