The Zoom Treadmill (Treadzoomer? Zoommill?)

If you’re like me, endless Zoom calls and the inability to work out at your regular gym may have produced a “Quarantine 15” effect on your weight and fitness.

For those who are fortunate enough to afford both a treadmill and the space to set it up, I offer a solution: The Zoom Treadmill, or Treadzoomer.

You’ve always wanted to find a way to work in a couple of hours of hiking per day. With a Treadzoomer, you can convert your endless videoconferences into valuable exercise. Just rig your Zoom laptop, tablet, or phone so that you can take your Zoom calls while walking at a moderate pace and incline.

Think of how fit you’ll be when you’re walking 20 miles per day!

I look forward to the day when I tune into a Zoom call, and see everyone’s heads bobbing gently up and down as they walk.

(Note: I’m playing this for laughs, but this is a serious suggestion that I think people should try!)

    I took a pandemic zoom class where a guy walked on the treadmill for 3.5 hours every class.

    He had his laptop, was typing on it, navigating online video excerpts for the class, etc.

    He was one of the top students in the class.
