Finding space in your home for a treadmill used to be a tricky problem to solve, but today, treadmills are smaller and lighter than ever. There's even an entire category of portable, slim treadmills designed to fit under a desk in your home office, and they can be combined with a standing desk to knock out both work and working out at once! The options range from bare-bones models with only slow walking speeds to treadmills with Bluetooth speakers and built-in workout programs. We've selected the best under-desk treadmills on Amazon that will bring a whole new meaning to "standing meeting."

If you're seeking bells and whistles, this under-desk treadmill has them. There's a Bluetooth speaker, a remote control to change the speed from 0.5 to 6 miles per hour, an LED display, and 12 preinstalled exercise programs.

Best of all, it requires no assembly — it comes pre-built, and it's foldable for easy transportation.
We'll admit that most treadmills aren't the most aesthetically pleasing, but this handsome treadmill features wood panels along its sides that make it stand out among competitors.

For apartment dwellers who might not have the space for a standard under-desk design, this compact treadmill will hopefully do the trick.
