iPad Treadmill Holder - Surf and Work While You Exercise

Updated on January 5, 2014

Create Your Own Treadmill Desk with an iPad Treadmill Mount

Treadmills are a great way to get exercise, but walking or running on one can be a real bore. That's why many people like to watch TV while pounding away on their home treadmill. But wouldn't it be nice if you could check your email or do other online tasks while working out? An iPad treadmill holder can make it possible.

An iPad treadmill mount is an affordable way to turn your exercise equipment into a treadmill desk that allows you to work out while you work (or play!) online, and it will also allow you to use all of your other iPad functions, such as listening to music, watching movies, or reading books. Take a look at these iPad treadmill holders to see which one is right for you.

It's compatible with all full-size iPads (not the iPad mini) and can be adjusted to position your iPad in the perfect viewing position. It works in both portrait and landscape mode and can be adjusted left or right up to 270 degrees and tilted up or down 45 degrees. In addition, this iPad treadmill holder has a built-in USB port so you can charge your device when it's on the stand.

      I think they are great. I am thinking not only for treadmill, but overall just to stand from sitting so much in front of the computer.
