||WORTH THE PRICE on this fine piece of stand up machinery. Talk about losing weight in style. I would rock this stand up workstation all day long if my boss would buck up and buy it for me. Seriously though, this is a HIGH QUALITY piece of equipment that will turn your big buns into fun buns.

|Ergotron WorkFit Single
||STAND UP IN STYLE – These Ergotron workstations are sweet. They are for fashionable offices though. If I tried to get away with putting this in my old school, hardwood, 1970’s office, I’d be run out of my ghost town. However, if you are building a new office that is contemporary and you want the latest in employee satisfaction, look no furhter than the Ergotrons.
The price generally hovers around $500.00
||ROLLIN….Rollin…rollin….This stand up workstation is best designed for those that need to roll it into place everyday. It reminds me of the college professor that I had with a portable stand up work podium. It is probably not great for a permanent office location. It has wheels. It is Awesome if you want to move your workstation in and out of the room, store it in a closet at night…..etc…..
The price generally hovers around $215.00
|Buddy Products Permanent
||LOVING this simple and friendly stand up work station. It is inexpensive, built well and holds up great. Your only concern should be with the fixed height. If you are too tall (over 6’2 or more), this may not be for you.
The price generally hovers around $290.00
||IT HAS WHEELS! Luxor used to be my favorite property on the famous Acquire board game. Not the Best stand up work station in the market. Good for some part time uses, but I would definitely upgrade if you are looking for a permanent solution.
The price generally hovers around $150.00
|Safco Muv Stand UP
||Comes up in the First position when you type Stand up workstation into Amazon. However, for us, it is not #1. Assembly is difficult and the wheels are brittle. It just doesn’t have the look of a classy workstation like the Ergotrons do. However, it is definitely GOOD. It performs its function fine once you are able to finish assembly.
The price generally hovers around $300.00
||WOW – The photo stagers literally managed to put the entire office onto this workstation. I have seen these stations before at my wife’s doctor’s office. The doctor rolls his desk into the room with all kinds of books, computers, charts, etc. on it. I thought he looked cool at least.
The price generally hovers around $350.00
||Five Stars for Price. Three Stars for desk space. Three Stars for wheels. Five Stars for looks. So, in all I’m giving you three stars.
The price generally hovers around $70.00
||A great mobile computer workstation. Doesn’t have any of the bells and whistles of the more expensive models, but it definitely does not disappoint. 4 Stars from me.
The price generally hovers around $250.00
||Oh Boy – this is a skinny one. It is a Space Saver and the reviewers on Amazon love it. They do think it is tough to assemble though. One reviewer gave it a ★ One Star just for assembly.
The price generally hovers around $90.00
WHY A STAND UP WORKSTATION?
I USED TO BE OVERWEIGHT. No question about it and no justifying it. About three years ago, I was overweight. That was not alarming to me and it didn’t even bother me that much to tell you the truth. I was kind of eating what I wanted to, exercising very little and kind of just growing slowly. It didn’t become alarming to me until my heart started feeling heavy and my chest starting hurting at night when I would lie down at night.
I USED TO BE SKINNY. Growing up I was always the skinny kid. There was nothing that I could do to change that. I would try to eat as many PB&J sandwiches as I could. I just couldn’t gain weight. I think this really gave me some bad habits. Fast forward to my mid-twenties, my eating habits are the same, my exercise habits are the same, but my metabolism is different. Now, when I ate, it would stick in my gut. I slowly started getting fatter and fatter.
I SAT ALL DAY LONG. At my office job, I would sit for 8-10 hours a day. This is what I was doing for over 10 years. Sitting. I never considered it a problem. I never even thought about it. I just liked to sit. In fact my table was positioned in a way against the wall and was low enough that I spent most of my time with my foot up on the desk. Like this:
What a Slob – What a Difference Standing Makes!: This was the #1 change that effected my weight loss. Standing burns about 50 calories more PER HOUR than sitting. That is a lot. I was approached by a friend of mine who was also looking to lose weight. He told me that I should try a stand up work station. He said that when he stands up all day at work that his back feels better, he is able to eat and still lose weight and that his overall health has improved.
