The NordicTrack Treadmill Desk gives a clever nod to a traditional office with its wood grain laminate finish; not the usual steel look of a typical treadmill. It’s created for a light to moderate workout with a max speed of 6 MPH. It boasts a very spacious desktop that is adjustable to accommodate different heights and can be used while walking on the treadmill and then used as a normal sitting or standing desk when the deck is folded up. There is an integrated LCD display screen to view your speed, distance and calories burned as well as a grip heart rate monitor on the handlebars. The offerings are basic but are all that’s needed for the level of activity this treadmill is created for. It is also iFit-enabled, which lets someone who wants more workout programs have that option if they’re willing to pay for the subscription to iFit.

Rating: 85.4/100. The purpose of this treadmill desk is less for providing you with a major cardio workout option than for getting your body moving as you do other work, so that you are not sedentary for long periods of time. In fact, it is not for any type of serious exercise routine, so it cannot be rated based on the same criteria used for a treadmill made for serious runners. Instead, we must review it from a different point of view – does it get the user moving and is it comfortable to use while you work?
There are no pre-loaded programs that come with the treadmill. You are simply able to see your speed, distance and calories burned as well as monitor your heart rate on the integrated LCD display. Should you want to put your work aside and have a somewhat more strenuous cardio workout, you can thanks to the maximum speed of 6MPH. If you want to add some variety to a walk or jog, the treadmill does come enabled with iFit, though the membership is an additional cost. It is a good-looking machine with the wood grain laminate giving it a sort of “office” look. The desk height is adjustable to accommodate different users. The motor runs quietly, which is important if you’re using it while you work or conduct calls or virtual meetings. The track is on the shorter side at 55″ but is good enough for walking. The grip heart rate monitor helps to keep you in your target heart rate zone, but a wireless option would be preferable. The USB charging station is a thoughtful addition. What makes this treadmill desk exceptional is the SpaceSaver® Design. The NordicTrack Treadmill Desk can fold up to maximize your floor space and, while folded up, the desk can be used as a normal sitting or standing desk, depending on how you adjust the height.
