The deadline after the deadline is sucking the life out of you. Your plan to work out this week has been postponed to next month. Your trip to visit some friends in New York has been canceled five times in a row. You spend late nights in the office until the clock strikes midnight, with your husband even having to switch the lights off just for you to shut down from work and go to bed. 

You take pride in your work life but outside of it, there’s really nothing much left other than your family begging precious minutes from you. This has to stop. While you dream of greener pastures, you just can’t get a promotion by sacrificing your mental and physical health. This doesn’t mean you have to give a lackluster performance at work or give up your dreams. In fact, it means the opposite. You are going to get that dough and life outside of it by becoming more efficient and productive with your time. All these begin by incorporating small changes in your workspace such as buying a desk bike and pedaling while you work on your laptop. It has become a breakthrough in helping people to stay active and alert even while working. 

This time, Flexispot gives another active work offer, the WP01 or the Under-Desk Folding Treadmill Walking Pad. For Flexispot, “busy” is not an excuse because, with this new walking pad, it’ll be easy to walk and work at the same time. You just have to spread the folding treadmill open under your height adjustable standing desk. Walk or jog lightly at the treadmill pad while you type away on your keyboard or review a presentation on your monitor.

The WP01 can detect your location with its ultrasonic sensors in real-time. It will stop or slow down when the user gets too far back. It also comes with a childproof lock to prevent any accidents happening to your little ones should they wind up using this equipment. It also provides better protection on your knees because of the Flexispot pad’s 2° slope, a feature not found in other folding treadmills. 

Multiple Customizable Buttons/ Options

Multiple Customizable Buttons / Options 

You may customize speed according to your preference by using the acceleration button when you want to speed up and the deceleration buttons when you want to slow down. You may also shift from one mode to another, from Fixed Speed to Standby, by using the Mode Switch button. 

Aside from the buttons, the pad of the WP01 can determine what speed you want depending on your standing area. If you want to speed up, stay in the uppermost part; if you want constant speed, walk in the middle, and; if you want to slow down, stay in the lower part. 

Transport Wheels

The WP01 is just 6.7 inches thick. You don’t have to worry about the extra space it’ll take up in your work area when not in use because it can be tucked under a sofa, bed, or desk or maybe leaned into a wall. 

Spacious Runway

Even though it’s relatively thin, the WP01 can carry up to 220 pounds thanks to its high-torque brushless motor. The runway is spacious, 18” by width and 47.2” by length. The spaciousness allows the user to walk with ease. 

Make the most out of your WP01 by subscribing to free YouTube exercises.

You may also opt to exercise during lunch or afternoon breaks with your colleagues on a Zoom call.
