What We Love About the Rebel 1000 Desk Treadmill:
It’s a Workplace Treadmill
The Rebel Treadmill 1000 is designed for one purpose; to get you more active in the workplace. Recent studies have shown that being more active in the workplace is better for your health and can actually make you more creative. This treadmill easily fits under a normal standing-height desk. You’ll also need about four feet from the front of the desk to the back of the treadmill. This treadmill only has a top speed of 2 mph, so you won’t need to worry about getting all sweaty or losing your breath while talking on the phone. The treadmill is also ultra-quiet so you won’t be annoying coworkers while you’re using the treadmill. At 2 mph, you be burning some serious calories during your normal workday.
What’s Not So Great:
It’s a Workplace Treadmill
Yes, this is not a typo and we are intentionally repeating ourselves. While this is its best feature, it’s also its worst. You can’t use this treadmill for a true workout. With a top speed of 2 mph, there’s no way to get you heart pumping. That’s fine because that’s not what it’s designed for. However, some treadmills on the market will provide their own desktop where you can put your laptop or other work supplies. Then you can move the desktop out of the way for a real workout at a higher speed. Some even provide incline for intensity. The Rebel Treadmill 1000 has none of this. It’s designed for one purpose; to sit under a standing-height desk and allow you to leisurely walk while you work. You’ll still need to go to the gym if you want that high intensity workout. If you just want to move at work, this is your machine.
Final Word on the Rebel 1000 Desk Treadmill:
If you already have a standing-height desk and you’re looking to fit a treadmill under it, then the Rebel Treadmill 1000 is a good choice. It is specifically designed for the workplace. However, if you’re looking for a more versatile treadmill that can be used while working, but also as a regular treadmill, you’re going to need to look elsewhere. A good place to start is the ProForm Thinline Pro Desk Treadmill.
