A common question when first starting to use the TrekDesk treadmill desk is whether you will lose weight and how long will it take before you start losing weight.

It is important not to get discouraged initially if the pounds are not falling off as fast as you would like. Your body is replacing fat with muscle to allow for the shift in activity levels and muscle weighs more than fat.

However, after a period of 6-8 weeks you will notice the weight comes off faster. You will also notice an increase in your energy levels, self esteem and alertness at work as you lose pounds waking on a treadmill desk.

Remember to start slowly. You will eventually be able to walk the entire day however depending upon your health you will want to start sensibly with an hour the first day and adding 15 minutes a day to your routine. We strongly suggest your consult with your physician before starting any exercise program even the slow rate of walking program of a treadmill desk.
