These Are The 4 Walking Pads All The TikTok Girlies Are Raving About

If you live on TikTok (as I do), you’ve probably seen the girlies rave about walking pads and I’m not gonna lie, I really vibe with them. As someone who works from home three days a week and is homebody-adjacent, I really struggle to fit in enough steps during my day. Especially, when my smartwatch passive-aggressively reminds me to move.

But I am a big fan of a good ol’ hot girl walk, especially in the afternoons. When it gets a bit wet or cold out, there’s no way in hell I’m going outside especially since I refuse to pay for an expensive gym membership I’ll rarely use.

To make up for my less-than-ideal exercise routine, walking pads are the perfect solution. Not only can I stride as I do some admin work or listen to a meeting, but I can also whip out my walking pad whenever I’m watching TV or if I just want to sneak in a light jog during my lunch break.

These under desk treadmills also happen to be much more affordable than full-sized treadmills, which can set you back about a grand. The only thing to keep in mind is that you may want to buy a standing desk to go with it if you want to comfortably use one while working. Otherwise, you’ll just be towering over your monitor, which isn’t exactly great for ye olde ergonomics.

Although, they’re also mint when it comes to storing them in an apartment or smaller home. You can usually just slide your mini treadmill under your desk, sofa or bed to pull out as the time arises.

Now that we’re all itching to strut our stuff, let’s have a look at the pros and cons of each treadmill, so you can decide which one’s best for you.
