    Not understanding the question? Do you mean can you type while on the walking treadmill standing systems that are now available?

    Somehow you keep linking directly to your own post! I'm super curious about the dancing treadmill guy now though, LOL.

    Is this the video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGftPCFXcf4

    And no, I have enough trouble just staying on the treadmill while I walk! (Have gone off the backend a couple of times.)

    Edit: (I just cut and pasted the link.)

    No, i can't do this. I would have trouble on a non moving surface.

    Ditto for me. I'm doing well to be able to stop and put my feet on the sideboards and take a drink of water and then start back without stopping the treadmill. That's a huge accomplishment for me! I'm not even gonna try that.

    Underneath the video it says "treadmill insanity", and I definitely agree!

    I wonder how long it took him to learn how to do this.

    What a great workout! Wish I could do that ..... It would take a lot of balancing and I have no idea how he isn't getting dizzy! Hope he has insurance!

    No. I can't do that and I am surprised that this work-out center or gym allows it. This is dangerous and could be an insurance liability for the site owners. The purpose of a treadmill workout is to run. Dancing is great fun and that I do but not on a treadmill. My office has a treadmill desk but even just a respond to e-mail it takes a lot of slowing down. Am I old and a fuss budget? Well may be, but I would rather this fellow be safe and dance his heart away on a dance floor.
