Treadmill Desk Safety Tips
When putting away your NordicTrack treadmill desk, be sure that it is locked away properly. You do not want the track to come down and hurt yourself or others. The latch, under the desk, needs to firmly lock into play, when putting the treadmill away. Properly putting the treadmill desk away ensures that no one has a cause to trip over the track itself. The desk sticks out just enough to prevent someone from tripping over the legs and base of the treadmill.
When opening the treadmill, be careful with your fingers so that they do not get pinched. Manually push the latch back and assist the track down. Do not bend with your back when doing this. Be sure to bend with your knees and do not get under the track when it is coming down. When the track is almost to the ground, it does catch itself to prevent the track from slamming down to the ground.
Consult a physician prior to using the treadmill desk. Like any workout equipment, it is best to be sure that the treadmill desk will be right for you and your needs. Ease into the speeds and inclines. The six miles-per-hour and/or ten-percent incline may sounds tempting. However, you want to take it nice and slow until you naturally push yourself a bit more.
Watch the time frame, while on the treadmill. If you are brand-new to using a treadmill desk, or it has been a while since you last used workout equipment, take your time. Start off with five-minute increments and see how you feel. Gradually, with time, you can increase to a speed and incline that will work best for you.
Be sure to wear proper foot apparel. Dressy shoes can wreak havoc on the treadmill belt. Be kind to your machine by keeping a pair of walking shoes at your desk.
