The Complete Guide to Treadmill Desking includes the vast content from the entire WorkWhileWalking.com website and much more, in a format that is easy to read comfortably at your own pace on your Kindle or with the Kindle reader. Whether you're looking to buy a commercially-available treadmill desk or to build your own DIY (Do-It-Yourself) setup this book is packed with valuable insights you can use to select the best equipment. It includes dozens of in-depth, unbiased product reviews on everything from standalone treadmill bases and adjustable height desks to fully-integrated treadmill desks and special accessories just for treadmill desk users. Treadmill desks are fantastic devices for maintaining and improving your health, but there is a lot of misinformation out there that can lead to improper use and eventual aches and pains in the shoulders, neck, wrists, lower back as well as leg muscles and feet. In this book you'll learn how to set up your treadmill desk with the proper ergonomics in order to avoid these maladies and be able to type and move the cursor with high accuracy even at nominal walking speeds. Fitness equipment and furniture manufacturers have been jumping into the treadmill desk market like sharks in a feeding frenzy, sensing a rapidly expanding new market for their re-positioned products. So many of their claims are exaggerated or false. We bust through the marketing hype and get down to the brass tacks on which equipment is really suited for the treadmill desk application and which is under-powered or poorly designed for the task. The book is filled with countless tips and tricks on how to build the best workstation and save a lot of money by selecting the right equipment the first time - and maintaining it properly to avoid the expensive hassles of servicing burned out treadmills. Best practice advice is provided not only by our editors who have many years of experience with their own treadmill desks but by hundreds of other users who have reported their own findings to the WorkWhileWalking's staff. Switching from a chair or standing desk to a treadmill desk requires a lot of forethought. It's a big change in your work style, office space and pocket book. So invest a few dollars to get advice from the early adopters who went before you - we promise, it'll be well worth it. Since the product reviews and the best practices advice are always changing we include free regular updates to the book with every purchase from Kindle.

Ron was the centrally-featured entrepreneur on TV’s Start-up Junkies, Season 1. As a recognized expert in several industries, including venture capital investing, entrepreneurship, aviation, domain name law, postal & parcel and now, treadmill desks, Ron has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences and has had several hundred articles published. He has been interviewed by most of the major networks, magazines and newspapers over the course of his entrepreneurial career.
