With many of us still working from home instead of heading into the office, you may be moving or walking less than normal. According to the Mayo Clinic, the average American was taking 3,000 to 4,000 steps each day pre-COVID (which is probably lower than ideal). For anyone who spends their days stuck at a work station, an easy way to get moving while working from home is by investing in a treadmill desk.

And with the common trend of hitting 10,000 steps a day still a goal for many of us, this will definitely help to get you there. There are about 2,000 steps in a mile with an approximate stride length of about two feet, according to Colleen M. Brough, PT, DPT, MS, board certified orthopedic clinical specialist and director of Columbia RunLab at Columbia University. And according to the American Heart Association, they recommend 30 minutes of exercise each day for cardiovascular health—which translates to about 1.5 miles of walking. So walking and working will help you reach those activity guidelines. So if you’re looking to add a treadmill desk to your work-from-home setup, we researched 5 of the best options that will help you reach your step goal and get in your cardio.
