When biohacker and relentless self-experimenter Ben Greenfield, owner of Greenfield Fitness Systems, set about to modify his standing workstation into a walking treadmill desk, he ran into a two big problems, namely:
1. Treadmills with motors – the kind you’d normally need for running, and the kind typically used at treadmill workstations – are not only big and bulky, but produce enormous amounts of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and “dirty electricity”, which has been linked to brain fog, altered cellular metabolism, cancer risk, and much more. In addition, a treadmill belt that runs on a motor alters your running and walking gait and biomechanics and can actually turn you into a worse runner or a sloppy walker!
2. So a non-motorized treadmill, also known as a manual treadmill, seems like a good solution compared to a motorized treadmill. But most manual treadmills only reach a maximum speed of 3.5-4.0 miles per hour, and this means that you can never use a manual treadmill for running. Since Ben wanted to intersperse short fitness and metabolism boosting sprints into his walking workday, this means he’d have to buy and find space for two separate treadmills – one for walking and one for running!
So over several months, Ben searched high and low for a manual treadmill that was compact enough to fit under his standing desk, that didn’t produce electrical pollution and that could even operate at high running speeds.
The solution that he eventually found was something called a “TrueForm treadmill” made by a company called Samsara Fitness. The unique looking TrueForm has several extremely unique characteristics that set it apart from any treadmill on the face of the planet, and is unlike any treadmill you’ve ever tried.
There is no motor, there are no buttons. It is entirely manual, it is powered by you – and you’ll love the fact that you are not only exposing yourself to zero electrical pollution and saving 100% on electrical costs, but also moving far more naturally due to the non-motorized belt design.
When you walk on a TrueForm treadmill, you burn more calories, get better balance and build stronger longer muscles, since you’re doing the work instead of the motor.
But it gets even better, because the TrueForm treadmill is the first and only treadmill to actually teach you the skill of running. And when it comes to sports performance training there is nothing like it. You experience top explosive speed, literally as fast as you can go! That’s right – the faster you run, the faster the treadmill goes, just like when you sprint outside.
-100% dirty-electricity free manual treadmill powered by your body…
-Small footprint for easy integration into an office or home work or gym setting…

Finally, if you plan on using your TrueForm treadmill at a standing desk, we highly recommend a non-motorized, low-EMF adjustable standing desk called a “RebelDesk” for this (you can use $40 discount code BEN on the desk). These are beautiful, functional desks that offer a perfect amount of height and space for a TrueForm treadmill, and allow you to sit, stand, walk or run – whatever you desire!
