    I aged out of my Horizon Treadmill — it was little and I used it for several years and loved it. Then, suddenly I could not walk on it without getting dizzy. I had to get rid of it and I was searching for some way to do 10,000 steps a day in the comfort of my apartment when I saw the Rebel 1000 Treadmill. This is a really special piece of equipment. It looks like the bottom of a treadmill, and consists of the walking part of the treadmill and a small control box that lets you choose your walking speed, and view walking time, and distance. The Rebel has a range of speed between 1/2 mph and 2 mph. You place the control box on a desk of your choice over your treadmill. Because Rebel’s 4 ft. wide desk was too wide for my space, I found a Winsone Brighton Writing Desk with Leaf on sale for $131.00 at Walmart. It was not tall enough or wide enough to fit the Rebel; so I put the desktop on top of a Bush Mobile Computer Table (at Amazon). The top of the Bush Table is 36 inches wide on the writing surface but there is only 27 1/2 inches of space between the legs. Still this is exactly wide enough to fit nicely over the Rebel’s 24″ width. When adding the height of the casters, the top surface of the Bush mobile desk measures 40″ high. The addition of the 48 pound desktop to the top of the Bush desk brings the working surface of the desktop to a height of 46 inches which is perfect for me The Bush table, according to the Questions answered on Amazon is very strong and can easily hold 100 pounds which makes it a safe place for the 48 pound Winsone desktop.The top of the two 3″ high drawers at the back of the desktop’s working surface form a 28″ wide by 3 1/4″ deep shelf with a 1″ wide lip that goes all the way around all 4 sides to prevent things from sliding off. I placed the control box on this shelf and it is a perfect height for both operation and viewing. The Rebel’s motor can run all day long without getting overheated or damaged. The Rebel treadmill is 63″ x 24″ with a maximum user weight of 250 pounds. I got up and walked a little in the middle of writing this review and it felt really good to just stroll along while holding onto the sides of the desktop. There is another half of the working surface that is folded beneath the upper half. You can unfold it and have a work space that is twice as large or you can leave it folded and there is a space on each side between the two pieces that makes a perfect place for holding onto both sides as you walk. There is one really huge bonus to purchasing this treadmill that I never would have guessed — my two little chihuahuas (4 pounds and 8 pounds) each learned to become expert treadmill walkers at 1/2 mph in less than 15 minutes. The only thing I haven’t written about is all the health benefits and there are many. Most people walk an average of about 1.8 mph on the Rebel and I can only do 8/10 mph, but something jumped out at me when reading health notes by Rebel and Cubii. Rebel says you can burn 745 calories a day while working at your desk. Cubii (under-the-desk elliptical (see at Amazon) says you automatically add over 100 calories to your daily intake the very first hour you spend sitting at your desk. I keep thinking about your probable confusion if you diet and give up 500 calories of your food to lose weight and then sit down and read or watch TV for 5 hours and you end up where you started, but statistics tell us people watch TV much more than even 5 hours a day. Suppose you diet to a minus 500 calories but sit for 7 hours at work and another 3 at home that adds up to an increased intake of 500 calories a day instead of a decrease of 500 calories you worked for by dieting. That very thing may be the reason we have so many obese people in our country. A pound equals 3500 calories; so at this rate how much are you likely to gain in 4 weeks. A Stanford University study showed that people using an office treadmill were 60% more creative. Also getting out of your chair is vital because our bodies have not yet evolved to being able to sit in a chair. We were created to stand, walk, run, move, and to lie down when we sleep. Our metabolism goes to sleep when we sit down and that’s the reason it is much healthier for us to watch TV, read, etc. while lying down than while sitting in a chair. You cannot just exercise at one time during the day and be happy that you are finished for the day — no, that won’t do. Tell yourself over and over that my metabolism goes to sleep whenever I sit in a chair and I need to move to wake it up. So the main recommendations in this review are: (1) Buy a Rebel treadmill if you can, (2) Buy or create a comfortable and safe walking desk and (3) Follow Fitbit’s advice and walk at least 250 steps from 5 to 14 consecutive hours every single day. So, let’s get walking and learn if just a little bit of walking every hour will result in a happy weight loss.

    It is the perfect size for our office. It is quiet and non-disruptive.

    Perfect for walking at my desk!

    I’ve had my desk for 3 months and so far I love it. I had a standing desk already and the foot print of this desk made it easy to slide underneath. My work is 100% phone calls and 99% of the time, the noise created (while 1.5 mph) does not interfere with the call. Occasionally if the call is a bad connection and the caller is very soft I have to turn it off to hear them better. My only complaints- the treadmill somehow seems harder than the floor so it is not as comfortable to just stand on when still. Also, builds up an impressive line of dirt just behind the track from the bottom of the shoes that has to be cleaned up regularly.

    Everyone loves it. Now I need one for my office.

    I love my treadmill – I use it with a stand-up desk I had previously purchased. The customer service at Rebel is amazing. I highly recommend.

  7. 5 out of 5


    If you have been on the fence, I say go for it. I had been thinking about getting a desk treadmill for about a year and was obsessively looking at reviews and blogs, etc. I finally did it, and I really do like it.

    As others say, it’s easy to set up – take out of carton and plug in.

    It’s quite quiet. However, I have my own office so can’t speak to how distracting it would be to others.

    I can easily read on computer, send emails, write papers. One thing I cannot do is read a had copy of text while annotating by hand, or really do any kind of writing by hand. But that’s okay.

    I walk 2 or 3 miles at a stretch without really noticing. THis feels much better than sitting all the time or even standing. Especially true if you have sciatica or other condition that makes it painful to sit.

    I walk at 1.5 mph, and after a bit I do start to sweat. I have brought a tank top to the office to change into.

    I have my own office and I walk with the door closed, because I’m still the only person in my building who has got one of these and I don’t want to draw attention to myself. Maybe when I’ve been doing it longer I’ll open the door.

    It’s been great. Do it.

    Great Treadmill & Fabulous Customer Support. I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to do so for the Rebel Treadmill. I purchased the treadmill for my office at work and have received so many compliments. It fits perfectly with the modern decor in my executive office. Customer support has also gone the extra mile to make sure I am completely satisfied with my purchase. Kudos to the team at Rebel. I absolutely LOVE the treadmill and use it everyday.

  9. 5 out of 5


    Works perfectly and allows me to clock in about 7 miles a day to boot! I love it. Customer service has been very helpful both times I called with questions as well.

    I’m writing this review on my Rebel Treadmill 1000, FYI. I’ve been using this treadmill for 2 1/2 weeks and I’m extremely pleased. A long list of positives and just a few gentle negatives. As a point of reference, I work in an office setting in the Administrative wing of a hospital.

    It really is very quiet. You can barely hear it at all, just a low hum, when it’s on. When I walk on it (I wear a pair of Kadee Crocs), you just hear my steps. One of my co-workers described the sound as a very quiet bread machine:) Everyone has assured me that it blends easily into the background, and we work in a VERY quiet office.

    I’ve read some different reviews where people mentioned poor packaging. I was fortunate to receive mine very securely packaged, no holes or dents in the box. The treadmill was very easy for me to set up. I had one co-worker help me unbox it and roll it over to my area, but otherwise, I did the setup on my own.

    I have a height adjustable workstation (I use a Varidesk) and it’s easy to raise up a few extra inches to accomodate the 4 inch height of the treadmill. In spite of the fact that I’m quite a bit taller standing on it, people who walk in the office don’t even notice that I’m walking until they get closer. My upper body really doesn’t move much, as I’m lightly resting my wrists on the desk.

    I’ve been getting, at the very least, 10,000 steps easily every day at work. Most days I get closer to 13 to 15,000. I use a fitbit flex, and unfortunately it doesn’t register my VERY slow steps (1 mpr), so I’ve had to put it on my shoe so that my steps register. I’m averaging walking about 3-4 hours a day. The great thing about my area is that I have a desk with an empty space underneath the right side, so when I need to take a break or just not use it for awhile, I just pick up the end and slide it out of the way.

    Going about 1 mph, I can easily type, talk on the phone, and get all my work done. I don’t get out of breath or sweaty. Also, I find it easy to step on and off the side without feeling like I might trip.


    Just a few things. My bottle of silicone lubricant sprung a leak, so most of it was in the bag and since it was the same bag as the safety button/cord, that was saturated. However, when I mentioned that to Customer Service, they sent me a replacement very promptly.

    I think for someone a little more handy, this wouldn’t be an issue, but the belt wasn’t entirely centered when I got it. I tried following the instructions to center it, but it wouldn’t stay centered. I’m slightly hesitant to follow the instructions to tighten the belt, as I’m concerned I’m going to hopelessly mess it up. One of my friends volunteered to help though. And when I mentioned to customer service that I wasn’t sure how to resolve this, they said they’re going to shoot a how-to video and post it. That’s pretty awesome, in my opinion!

    Every so often, it does make a slight creaking noise for 3 to 4 steps, but it doesn’t last. Might be the belt, but no one can hear it but me:)

    Overall, I feel this was a great purchase and I’ve been very pleased with the customer service!

    Everyone should have one! Been walking 13,000 – 15,000 steps a day without thinking twice. Can’t stand to sit any more!

  12. 4 out of 5


    Wish it had a cumulative mile recorder, but they’re creating an app. Super quiet. Great response from the company when I’ve had questions. Only goes up to 2.0 mph, which I would love to see raised, even to 2.5 or 3.0.

  13. 3 out of 5


    Good device, but it can’t speed up more than 2 mph.

  14. 5 out of 5


    I am so pleased with this treadmill! It’s super-quiet and a great addition to get a couple extra miles in each day that I wouldn’t have otherwise. At first I was concerned that the speed only goes to 2 miles per hour but as it turns out; I keep the pace at about 1.5 miles per hour which is a great pace to still be able to work on my computer at the same time. I would recommend starting off slow and only using the treadmill for an hour at most/day if you have not used a treadmill while working before. It’s terrific!

    I’d been thinking about getting a treadmill desk for a while. My first step was a sit/stand desk, which convinced me that I could type/mouse standing up. Since my office layout is tight and I wanted a treadmill that I could fairly easily move out of the way if I wanted to sit. Initially I was looking at a lifespan model, but those were bigger and considerably heavier. I then found out about the Rebel. I read one unfavorable review at workwhilewalking.com, and that gave me some pause. But there were plenty of good user reviews, and even though I wasn’t sure how ‘real’ they all were, I decided to go for the Rebel.

    The shipping took a little longer than I expected, 6 business days instead of 3-4. The box came well-packed. Setup was very easy, and it fit very well. It takes a few minutes to move it, which I tend to do at most once a day. When it turns on you can’t hear anything. When you walk on it, you do hear a whooshing sound in addition to your footsteps, but pretty quite.

    I started walking at 1.2 mph and after a few days I do most of my work at 1.5. If I am on a call and not typing I set it up to 2.0. I can’t imagine walking and working any faster than that. I also bought a vertical mouse from evoluent and that has made mousing much easier. My standard Microsoft ergonomic keyboard works fine.

    When I first started standing and working, I felt much more energized than when I was sitting. But since I started walking and working I feel even better. The first couple of days I needed to stop and sit for a while, but after a week I feel I can walk pretty much all day. I’m very curious to see how this feels after a month or two.

    Terrific product and company. I’ve owned this treadmill for a little more than a year. I have an office in a biology lab with surrounding offices. The noise it makes is imperceptible to my coworkers. The steps I take are fairly quiet as well. I appreciate that stopping the treadmill for a few minutes does not reset the speed. The treadmill starts and stops gradually so that there is no sudden jerking up to speed or sudden stopping except if you pull the safety cord and the magnet comes loose. My walking speed turns out to depend on the level of concentration needed for whatever task I am doing. Light reading speed is 1.8-2 MPH while writing new text or computer code means keeping the speed down to 1 MPH or stopped altogether. I use a pocket three accelerometer pedometer, and it counts steps quite accurately on this treadmill for me except at the slowest speeds. I find that when typing (1.2-1.6 MPH), I need to adjust my desktop height ever so slightly up or down and it also depends on time of day. I have paired the treadmill with an electric raising and lowering desk and probably adjust 4-5 times a day to get the ergonomics just right. The overall experience has been terrific. I should say that when I first got it, there was a problem in the controller box, and the Rebel company person was immediately responsive and replaced the whole thing in just a few days with no fuss whatsoever. This product is a winner and comes with great company support. I’m happy enough that I am buying a second one.

    Works great so far on the first day. Have it all set up and seems to run like a charm. I will be back to let you know how it’s going after a few weeks.

  18. 5 out of 5


    Works very well. I have matching Rebel adjustable height table as well. Getting alot of use out of them. Treadmill plastic cover was cracked by delivery guy. Customer Service was awesome, and immediately replaced the plastic part, with zero hassle for me. It’s only for walking. Not running. But knew that when bought it. Less obtrusive than I thought it would be. Kinda sleek.I would definitely recommend it for someone who wants to walk and work.

    Rebel Desk changed my life. I know it sounds dramatic but it’s absolutely true. I wasn’t actively looking to burn calories or lose weight. I just didn’t want to be sedentary while working 8-10 hours a day. I thought standing desks were sufficient but then decided to give one a try with the encouragement of my new Fitbit.

    Once I adjusted to the initial fatigue of walking for an hour, I carried on. Now I’m able to work an entire work day walking and it results in my getting into a flow and becoming more productive than I’ve ever been. I’ve also improved my stamina and can run and bike longer than I had done before.

    As a product Rebel Desk has been flawless. It’s simple to use, mechanically sound, and great value compared to other high quality treadmill desks.

    So glad I bought this. Love it! This treadmill is super quiet, easy to use, and has the perfect speed range for working. I have an adjustable standing desk and I work long days, so this is a perfect alternative to sitting all day. I feel very comfortable walking for most of the day, even though I can adjust the desk to sit, if needed. The pace does not distract me from work. I just have to make sure to keep walking flats in the office. I had been tempted to adapt a cheaper treadmill not meant for work, but I am glad that I didn’t. You feel like you are floating for a few moments when you get off, but time on the treadmill energizes me rather than tiring me, and is a welcome change from feeling like a slug after sitting for hours on end. Delivery service was great and set-up was super simple.

    I absolutely love my Rebel treadmill! I absolutely love my Rebel treadmill. Between work and kids, I don’t make the time to work out. At least this way, I am no longer sitting at work all day. I was nervous that I would have a hard time adjusting to working and walking at the same time, but it was actually a very quick and easy transition. I do find I walk at different speeds depending on the task, but it was pretty natural figuring out the right speed for each task. I am MUCH more comfortable than when I was just standing at my desk – my legs got very stiff just standing, but walking is very comfortable. I expected to be more tired at the end of the day, but that hasn’t been the case. If anything I actually have more energy. In terms of brand – I have been incredibly happy with Rebel Desk – they have great customer service, and the treadmill is attractive, is a nice size and is fairly quiet. (And when my kids come to the office, they think it is the coolest thing ever).

  22. 5 out of 5


    Absolutely love this treadmill. I am able to walk 6+ miles a day at a nice pace.
    This treadmill is exactly what I was looking for. Had it setup in less than 30 minutes and have been on it ever since. A Little pricey, but I think it is worth it.

  23. 5 out of 5


    I can type, design, and illustrate on this; I have more energy; I think better; and I’m more productive. I am so happy I brought Rebel Desk into my design studio! From day one, my body started singing out with happiness on how good it feels to use this desk while getting my rockin’ work done. I used to write novels on a treadmill using a flimsy shelf. I also earned an MBA on a treadmill. I have experience to know I wanted this, but I’ve never had such good equipment, and that’s why for years I stopped working on a treadmill.

    The Rebel Desk and Rebel Treadmill have solved this and are a BIG BIG level up! The design is so much better than what I tried making do with before. I’m not just a worker; I’m a *designer* on a treadmill now. It’s a couple weeks in, so I’ll affirm to you that I can *design and illustrate* while walking slowly on my Rebel Desk. I talk to customers while walking on the (very quiet) treadmill. That means if you have pretty much any office job, you can do it on a Rebel Desk, too.

    I’m happier. It’s probably natural endorphins. I’m also doing better work (think: blood flow to the brain is up!). And I’m clocking more work hours because I don’t need to get up to stretch and move, as I’m already moving and I don’t get crimped up anymore. I don’t slouch over at my screen anymore.

    I gave away my office chair. I literally don’t own that chair anymore. I don’t miss it.

    It took about a week to get used to the increased physical activity. Note that I *only* work on this treadmill desk; I do not have a desk with a chair. This is my desk, nobody else’s, so I can comfortably have my monitor, drawing tablet, and whatever papers and idea notebooks I’m working out of on the desk.

    If for some reason I need to find a chair and sit down for a morning, it’s easy to slide away the treadmill and crank the desk to a chair height. Importantly, I do not have to move anything off my desk to crank it down. Full cup of tea sitting right next to my drawing tablet? No worries, it doesn’t need to move. The crank motion is smooth and slow, and nothing on the desk will fall off or shift as you change the height.

    Moving the treadmill out of the way and cranking the desk down takes about two minutes. I timed it.

    It goes 2 miles per hour maximum. I can type, think, talk on the phone, write, strategize, do accounting, etc. at that maximum speed. If I need to illustrate, I turn it down to the minimum 0.5 miles per hour. If I’m doing minute design work that needs things to line up carefully, I go for about 1 mile per hour. None of these speeds makes me sweat. I don’t stink. I don’t breathe hard. I wear athletic shoes or moccasins, but I don’t need to adjust my wardrobe otherwise.

    On a personal level, those little dimples next to my oblique muscles? They’re back. My waist is visibly smaller. I’m clocking 35-45 miles per week while I work, which is about 5000 calories a week, so I am eating absolutely everything I want to and still trimming out. And if think about how they style the trunks of sports cars — the high, proud lines? Just saying the results are fast and good on this level as well.

    I’m so thankful for this invention. This is the best equipment investment I’ve made in my company this year, and it’s also possibly the best investment I’ve made in myself personally.

    Will transform the way you work. I’m obsessed with my Rebel Treadmill!

    I was not sure where to start when I decided that I wanted an alternative to sitting all day long. I did the research and found that the Rebel Treadmill is less expensive, has a sleeker design, more portable, and is quieter than other treadmill desks. Not to mention, the treadmill desk has a ton of health benefits!

    Now that I have a Rebel Treadmill, I walk more during the day and I feel more energized at the end of the workday. I use it during conference calls and for normal work on the computer.

    It has turned the normal 2pm drowsy time (I used to use coffee as a crutch to get me through) into an opportunity to get re-energized and healthier.

    My coworkers use it and have started ordering the Rebel Treadmill for their offices and shared space.

    I highly recommend it!

    I love my Rebel Desk! I have been wanting something like this for years, because I just hate to sit while I am working. I worried that I wouldn’t really be able to concentrate if I was walking. Turns out I can work just fine. The integration of the treadmill and the desk is seamless, which is really important because I am constantly interrupted. I press just one button to stop and the same thing when I hop back on!

    Improve your health without thinking about it! This is seriously a life-changer. We’ve had this for about a month now. My partner works from home at least half of the week. He has been a big advocate for the standing work desk for years and now with the treadmill, he is even happier. His job entails several hours on the computer, much of which is tedious and can be stressful. Now, with the treadmill, he will sometimes put in 5-6 miles a day without even thinking about it. When I find myself home while he’s gone, I prop up my textbook and read my assignments while walking – I walked 4 miles just reading one assignment the other day when I would have normally been sitting on my behind.

    There is a small learning curve for what you can do and how fast you can go. I find it easy to go 2.0mph while reading or surfing the internet, but for writing and typing, I need to slow it down. It also depends on how long your legs are and how fast a normal walking pace is for you. My partner is 6’1″ with long legs and normally has it set for 2.0mph unless he is writing or doing something intricate with the mouse on the computer. Like any treadmill or elliptical machine, there is also a tendency for a slight light-headed feeling when you first step off of it if you’ve been on for hours, so I always hold onto the desk for a moment when stopping. It goes away quickly, though!

    It is a sturdy, quiet, heavy piece of equipment, but still easy to move around the room (I need to use two hands). The only thing I would like is a “Pause” button. If you walk away for a few minutes, you press the “Stop” button and it slowly comes to a stop. If you get back on within a few minutes, it will remember your time/distance/speed when you press “Start” again, but if you leave it for too long it will reset and your information is lost. I like to keep track of how far I go, so when I get off, even for a few minutes, I jot down my distance on a sticky note in case I don’t start up again before it resets.

    In all, we are VERY happy with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone who spends hours a day slumped over their computers!

    I’ve been using the Rebel treadmill for a couple of months now. Overall I am pleased with it. It is sturdy, nice looking, compact, and seems well built. I ordered it directly from Rebel Desk because I needed “white glove” delivery. They were nice to deal with. It was very easy to set up, just a couple of things to connect and plug in. It weighs about 80 pounds, so you’ll need help with moving it to your location. I opted to pay the extra $50 for their “white glove delivery” which meant that the delivery people would unpack it, set it up, and remove the packing materials.

    My main negative about the treadmill is that it is noisier than I expected it to be. It runs very quietly when you just turn it on, but walking on it makes a fair amount of clunky noise. This might bother some people, especially if you share an office. It seems like this is something that could be addressed by the company, maybe by using a thicker rubber or some kind of padding. I feel like the noise is coming from the rubber walking surface being just a thin layer covering the hard, noise-generating components underneath. Just my guess. The other downside to this thin rubber is that my feet hurt from walking on it for more than about 20 minutes. I think a thicker rubber might solve both these issues.

    I did have quite a few problems with the delivery. I had read the reviews here on Amazon and noticed that several people had received damaged treadmills resulting from poor packing. I discussed this with Rebel and was assured that they had solved the packing problems. So I went ahead and placed my order, with a delivery date 3-4 days away. Well, at 5 days the treadmill had not even been shipped. After that I had to stay on top of the delivery issues constantly, and even so, the treadmill took two weeks to arrive. And when it did arrive, guess what, it was in the old bad packaging and had a big smash in it. So after all that, it had to be returned. And the delivery guy was pretty mad, given that he had to carry this heavy thing upstairs and downstairs twice.

    Rebel was very apologetic and did send out a new treadmill. This took another two weeks. This time the delivery went fine. Rebel offered me a $50 refund for my trouble, but that never happened.

    However, after all that, I’m glad I have it and it is working well for me. I live in a really rainy, blustery climate, and when the weather is just too horrible for walking outdoors it’s great to be able to walk at my desk.

    This machine arrived yesterday morning, and I’ve basically been on it ever since. It is amazingly quiet – I was concerned as my home office is above a tenant’s bedroom, but it’s truly quiet and very smooth. If I walk away from it to deal with something I have to look to see if it’s running when I get back.

    It’s much smaller than I’d even hoped for. I have limited space, but it’s both small enough to not be in the way of everything, and long enough to feel perfectly secure walking and not concentrating on doing so – I’m not going to go flying off the back.

    I had some questions before purchase and customer service was great and response was within hours.

    Getting used to writing by hand and typing while walking is going to be a steep learning curve for me, but well worth it for how great it feels to not be stuck sitting in a chair for 12 hours a day, as I have been for several years now – to then go sit in a chair to read or watch TV.

    Really, everyone should have one of these for mental and physical health, and so far I see no reason to spend the $1,500 – $2,000 other brands ask when this one is great – light, with wheels so easy to adjust, super quiet, operates smoothly and less than $700.

    WOW! This is great. I can’t tell you what I was expecting. However I can tell you the truth of what I’m receiving is greater than any expectations I could have imagined. This feels so great, my gluteus muscles are firing and it feels so unbelievably great. I am so happy I stumbled upon this company Rebel Desk. They are proving to be a first class operation with high quality products available at a low price point. This is rare, especially in a start up. Why can’t more companies come out of the gate like this. The Rebel Treadmill 1000 is a keeper.

    a bit more pricy than the Confidence treadmill (I have that too), but this is much better for an office environment where the people 20 ft away probably won’t even hear you (unless you are in a library like quiet space). Very nice. Max speed of 2mph is sufficient for hours of walking.

    Love, love, love. By far one of the best health investments I’ve made in my life, and i’m very health conscious, as I train for Ironman triathlons. However, I sit down a lot at work too. This system, solution, product has kept me busy while working, typing, emailing and making business calls. My kids love it too!! Highly recommended!!!!

    I used to sit all day long for work. My circulation, posture, muscle tone, morale, and overall fitness suffered drastically. I would return home with no energy to do anything more than just sit some more before laying down. This desk has literally changed my life. I have a fitbit and while I used to average between 1500 and 3000 steps on a workday, I now am getting in over 15,000 at work alone.

    I have way more energy, feel more positive, and am even able to concentrate much better at work.

    Delivery and assembly were a breeze and Rebel Desk’s fantastic customer service helped me work out a minor issue I was having.

    Do not hesitate! You will love it!!!

    The Rebel Treadmill was easy to set-up and use right out of the box. It is so nice to not sit all day at work. Everyone comments how quiet the treadmill is, and I can easily log 6 or more miles a day. I recommend wearing socks and/or shoes, because the tread can wear a little on bare feet. If you are thinking about going to a treadmill at work, do it! And this is a great low-cost option.

    I spent the majority of the fall researching walking treadmills and felt that most of the products offered were too big for my office space (9×9). I was so excited when I came across the Rebel Desk 1000. The specs were perfect! I called and spoke to someone at Rebel Desk with all of my questions. Like “how long can you walk on the RD1000 per day and how long will it last? I mainly got my questions from all my research and other walking treadmills say this one is good for 3-4 hours a day and then if you pay $300 more you can get the one that is good for 8 hours a day. She was very polite and told me it is hard to know how long your treadmill will last because there are so many other factors such as body weight that go into the equation. She also told me that they had a great warranty and a 30 day money back guarantee and that the RD1000 had the same motor as the competitor. I was sold.

    My treadmill arrived within two weeks via UPS and had a hole in the corner of the box. The UPS guy said it can happen with large packages but commented on how well the product was packed and that there should be no issues due to that. I looked in the hole and sure enough there was enough packing around my RD1000 that there was not even a scratch.

    Set up was super easy, pretty much take it out of the box, plug it in, tighten up some screws and put the silicone on the belt and I was good to go.

    I have been up and walking now for about 3 weeks. I was lucky enough to have a handy husband who made my desk walking and sitting so I walk on average 5 hours a day and stand and sit the other times. I was so amazed at how easy it is to take phone calls and type while walking. I have been tracking and I do between 4-7 miles a day. I finally feel like my butt is not spreading but shrinking.

    Rebel has been amazing to deal with and I love the product.

    The first thing you notice about the Rebel Desk after you plug it in and get started is exactly what your co-workers don’t notice: it’s quiet. Really quiet. Not that pleasing your co-workers is the most important thing, but at the very least I don’t want to make any more “frenemies” by taking the last cup of water from the cooler (and not replacing the bottle) AND by having some loud mechanical device under my desk. So at least they can’t be mad about the treadmill.

    I love that the controls are fine-tuned for walking. The speed starts at 0.5 mph and goes up in 0.1 mph increments until 2.0 mph. I’m currently at 0.7 mph and working my way up.

    Delivery: got it a day early
    Setup: super easy out of the box.
    Control: simple and straight forward.

    Loving my Rebel Desk!

    Rebel Treadmill has several obvious advantages comparing with other desk treadmills

    1 Delivered by UPS.
    You dont have to take time off making appointment with shipping company, negotiate for delivery to you apartment or pay for white glove service.

    2 It works out of the box,you don’t have to waste time to put it together
    It makes Rebell treadmill much less expensive because for most people time is money and save aggravation.

    3 The maximum speed of treadmill is 1.8 miles which is more than sufficient if you use it at you desk.
    why get full breakfast if all you want is a cup of coffee?

    4 the treadmill aesthetically pleasing and occupies little space

    5 The customers support is fantastic!

    I’ve had my Rebel treadmill for more than two years now and it is still going strong. I had to move it when I changed jobs but even that was smooth because of the way the wheels on the front allow you to maneuver it. I’ve tried it with walking videos too (like pretend you’re walking along a southern California beach). Fun.
