SurfShelf Treadmill Desk: Laptop and iPad Holder

The SurfShelf Treadmill Desk: Laptop and iPad Holder works equally well with most elliptical trainers.  You can click here to see if this holder would be compatible with your elliptical machine.

Use your laptop, iPad or portable DVD player to make working out fun! The pros of the Surfshelf are its simplicity in setting it up, the ability to just leave it up because it’s in your home, and the best pro of all, your workouts are no longer boring.

One slight con my colleagues have mentioned is that it can cover parts of the control panel on a a few machines so you would need to have settings in place before you start.

Product Dimensions: 15 x 14 x 6 inches

Shipping Weight: 1.9 pounds

Key Points

  • A Velcro strap holds your device secure. This product is made of 100% super strong Polycarbonate and is fully adjustable.
  • Easy to install but I found it took slightly longer than the 1 min advertised! 4 minutes
  • Can also hold books if you are less techno minded
  • Air vents to keep laptop or iPad cool
  • Adjustable angle
  • This holder is excellent if your elliptical machine doesn’t have a built in table
