Staying active while working has become trendy in recent years, and with good reason. Because of increased remote work opportunities, many have seen the value of being able to work while burning some calories. With the rise of height, adjustable standing desks came also the increased demand for desk bikes and folding treadmills. Not only do these exercise equipment aid in weight loss, but they have also helped thousands of employees stay alert and focused with their tasks at hand.
The under-desk bike V9U is one of Flexispot’s bestselling items. It has a 5 rating on the shopping page with 168 reviews. Many love the efficiency it brought into their home office and have been raving about it to their peers.
To meet this need for fitness and physical health in the age of remote work, FlexiSpot brought it another exercise companion, the folding treadmill. It did not only provide one option or two, instead, but it also gave its clientele nine offers to choose from. We break down four of the five offers below:
Folding Treadmill 01
This folding treadmill features two exercise modes: under desk walking and running. The handrail would be folded when it’s used as an under-desk walk treadmill which usually means you are working or studying at the moment. The speech can range from 0.5 to 4 mph. This allows you to do what you have to do while bringing an action to your sedentary task.
Switch to the running mode by raising the handrail. Its speed can be anything between 0.5 to 7.5 mph. You may set your desired speed depending on your fitness goal such as maintaining weight or losing it.
This is easy to install because it does not require any extra screw, just the rotating knob. It has a low noise motor that won’t disturb your family or neighbors, no matter your speed. The multifunctional LED display tracks time, calorie, distance, speed, and step. The running surface is spacious at 15.8" x 41.3,” and is shock-absorbing and non-slip because of its rubber material. After the exercise, it can be tucked away under a sofa, corner, or bed.
Folding Treadmill 02
This folding treadmill comes in either pink or black. It's reasonably priced at $319.99 from the original price of $339.99. An additional $30.00 if you opted for the black color.

Speed can be tracked through the multifunctional display that comes with how you fared as well in terms of time, calorie, distance, and step. It is slightly smaller than the first treadmill but still spacious at 14.9” x 41.3. ” The large-area rubber belt is also shock-absorbing and non-slip, thanks to its multiple layers: wear-resistant surface, sound insulation layer, high strength support layer, shock-absorbing layer, and compression layer.
The horsepower at 1.5HP will deliver its performance for running, jogging, or walking. Not only is it smooth, but it is also quiet and will be the same conversation among your family and friends.

Most important is that you are able to keep track of your performance by checking the multifunctional LCD display which shows time, calories, speed, and distance. You can even put your mobile phone or tablet in the holder while talking to your friends or watch movies when you break a sweat. Again, it’s spacious at 14” x 39.4” with a large-area running belt that is shock-absorbing and non-slip. This is ideal for all fitness levels and body sizes.

It’s also very portable with preinstalled wheels that you will be able to move the treadmill around the room.
The runway is also bigger than the first three. Its size is 47.2” x 18” and has a large weight capacity of 180 lbs.
Folding treadmills have nowhere to go but up. Because health is more of a priority with a lingering contagious virus out in the open, people should start investing in exercise. It reaps numerous benefits such as longer life, heightened energy levels, and a better and lighter mood. Exercise also helps sharpen focus and improve efficiency at work.
