I Simply Love My SurfShelf Treadmill Desk!
Walking on a treadmill or riding my stationary bike for me is unbelievably boring. I know I should be enjoying this zen-like state while exercising but the truth of it is exercising indoors is not my favorite thing to do.
I tried a number of DIY ways of adapting my iPad and even my laptop to my treadmill but the scenario involved me forever adjusting my iPad which lead to me finally giving up.
A friend suggested that I pick up the SurfShelf Treadmill Deskas she got one for a gift and just loved it. A few weeks later I broke down and bought one and 10 minutes later it was hooked up.

It’s basically a plastic tray, a velcro strap and a couple of nylon belts that do a great job of keeping my laptop in place. Once set up it only takes a minute to strap in your lap or iPad.
My SurfShelf Treadmill desk is one awesome toy! I now am able to check my mail, browse through Pinterest, watch movies and tv shows I’ve missed.
To make it short and sweet when I’m using my SurfShelf treadmill desk I just don’t feel like I’m exercising at all. What a great invention!
The plastic is made out of a sturdy 100% polycarbonate that is designed to hold up to 15 pounds.
The video I found below explains exactly how and why they made the SurfShelf so strong.
