I’ve said it before. I don’t like to exercise. Actually, I hate it. My excuses for not working out are many. I’ve got work to do, shows to watch, emails to answer. There just isn’t enough time in the day to fit cardio into my schedule.
When I do make the effort to get my body in motion, it’s difficult to make it through the recommended 30 minutes. No matter how hard I try not to, I find myself watching the clock. Is this over yet?
When I discovered the most genius idea that is the SurfShelf, I knew it would change everything everything for me. Not only would the ability to use my laptop while walking be a great distraction, it would allow me to multitask. The inventor, Randy Fenton faced the very same challenges most of us do.
The device arrived at my doorstep and I installed it on my treadmill the same day. I have a big honkin’ 17” laptop and I was a little worried that the shelf wouldn’t hold, but it did great. I was so engaged with email, youtube and facebook, that it was 30 minutes before I even checked the clock, and I worked out for a full hour!
See? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so I snapped this photo :)
The SurfShelf fits 99% of treadmills, ellipticals and bikes. It is made of 100% polycarbonate, the same material used to make bullet-proof glass. It will up to 60 pounds of weight, even big old laptops like mine. It attaches to your machine easily with the included straps, and I really like that it has air vents to keep my laptop cool.
Now, how much is this nifty device? Only $39.95, and it also includes a money-back guarantee if you don’t love it. But trust me, you will. Considering I invested hundreds in my treadmill, the less than forty-dollar investment in the SurfShelf ensures that I actually use it. That’s what I call a bargain!
