Treadmill Laptop Shelf Stands - Laptop Holders and Desk For Treadmills

Updated on August 17, 2014

Everyone knows the benefits of performing heart healthy exercise throughout the week to stay fit and in good physical condition but finding the time in today's busy lifestyle is often very difficult. A home running machine is one way in which you can grab a quick fitness blast whenever you've got the time but exercising at home may be great for the heart and for losing weight but it can also be somewhat on the dull side as well.

That's where innovative entertainment options like a treadmill laptop stand come in very handy! A laptop holder for a treadmill like the top rated SurfShelf is an inexpensive alternative to a treadmill desk and allows you to use all the features of your portable notebook computer to turn a boring fitness routine into a fun one or even to get a little work done.

The following selection of holders and stands for mounting a laptop computer onto a treadmill are available to buy online from selected retail stores, many with free shipping too.

Why Buy A Laptop Mount For A Treadmill Anyway?

All of the above are great, but why would you really want one? I mean, what's the point right? Well, people are always finding ways to fit their exercise routine into their busy lifestyles and even those of us who can enjoy a more leisurely ay of life still want to spice up the dull plodding monotony of walking on a machine.

Treadmill laptop stand holders basically allow you to do one of two things by combining a computer and a running machine. They enable you to bring a whole wealth of entertainment features to the dashboardor, they allow you to combine your work with your working out by giving you access to emails, reports or course notes if you are studying.

Personally, I tend to use my treadmill laptop mount (and I use the SurfShelf reviewed above) to catch up on work emails and perform some of the simpler online activities which make up part of my daily work routine. I basically combine my 45 minutes of cardio with part of my daily work schedule, killing two birds with one stone. Not only does it take the monotony out of my workout but also allows me to fit some work in at the same time so my workout doesn't eat into my leisure time...and believe me, I'm not someone who enjoys exercise and considers it to be pleasurable like others I know.

My wife is more of an entertainment lover when it comes to her workout and she uses the Surfshelf purely to keep entertained. A treadmill laptop table mount will allow you to use all the entertainment features of a home computer which means you can use it to stream movies or TV shows from Netflix or Hulu, or watch a DVD or downloaded movie. You could even use it to watch a workout video and follow along as you go. Or you can just browse around catching up on what your friends are up to on facebook, check personal emails, run through some Rosetta Stone and learn a new language, or read an ebook. The entertainment options are only limited by your imagination.
