Thank you for this product – it has saved my life! As a home based knowledge worker and type II diabetic , I must keep moving to stay healthy. Surfshelf has enabled me stay on my treadmill and work at the same time! My glucose numbers have dropped since I have begun using my surfshelf. I now look forward to my sessions as a time that I can focus on work and yet get exercise at the same time! In fact , I am composing this note as I walk at 1.5MPH!!!
Thank you again!

I have received our SurfShelf and I love it. My oldest son is Autistic and lies around playing on his laptop all day. He has gained a lot of weight from lack of exercise. We have been unable to get him to walk on our treadmill until we found the Surf Shelf. He loves it and we are excited that he will finally start a journey to a healthier life. My husband David is a state certified physical fitness instructor for his police department and we will recommend your product to all those that he works with.

I think it is the most wonderful awesomest thing ever invented. I’ve been waiting for someone to invent it. I have 4 part-time teaching jobs and in the past year, I’ve put on 10 pounds just b/c I work so much. However, I do a lot of teaching prep work, lesson plans, communication with parents through email. I get so much work done while I’m working out on my elliptical- I actually lose track of time while I’m on there and go over an hour if I’m not watching my time. One of my other friends says that defeats the purpose of working out – it’s supposed to relieve stress – work adds to stress. But, I need to work to pay bills – I have 3 kids in Catholic school – I like what I do – and I have more energy to teach at my 4 jobs after I work out. On weekends I try not to do work – I just read a magazine or catch up on Facebook. And, I’ve been able to lose 5 pounds of my weight so far (after I had my 3 kids I had 60! to lose). And, I like keeping my weight under control. It would be hard to do if I was doing all that computer work at my desk.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR INVENTING IT!!!! I tell everyone about it. – when they ask me how I do it all.

I am so grateful for this product! I have already recommended this to a couple of my friends. I utilize this on my Horizon Treadmill. I am not an athletic person. Exercising is a “chore” for me. I figured that I was surfing the web at least an hour a day at home. Why not multi-task!!! I began surfing the web(no punn intended) for a product that will allow me to do both at the same time. Voila!!! I found the surfshelf.
I get caught up on my emails, shopping and facebook while I am on the treadmill. I am trying to accomplish some of my regular on-line activities while I am using the treadmill.
Now I can walk on my treadmill daily without getting bored or staring at the clock ticking second by second to reach my time goal. It is simply fantastic!!!!

I love the surfshelf. I have it hooked up to my precor 524 elliptical and I couldn’t be happier. Its sturdy and I feel confident about my laptop sitting on it.
I tend to watch netflix or simply do my reading, face book and emails while on the elliptical.
I think its a great product!

I am truly enjoying the Surf Shelf. I am just getting back into an exercising routine and the Surf Shelf allows me to do something medically necessary (exercise), while I’m exercising my brain with news and online chat. I really like the strength of the Polycarbonate shelf and I’m no longer worried about breaking my laptop trying to balance it on something less stable.
Thanks again for a wonderful product!
Trinidad P. in TX
I bought a SurfShelf about two months ago and I have since lost 10 lbs using it! I’m able to go to the gym much more often, and I’m able to spend a long time there without getting bored and without shirking my work. I’m able to save my more mundane (yet necessary) tasks for gym time, such as paying online bills, catching up on e-mails, and reading simple articles.

“I LOVE my SurfShelf. It makes it easy to workout, which is a really big deal. Working out is a medical necessity for me, not just for weight issues, but I also have fibromyalgia and it is essential for pain management. Motivation was always an issue with me until I got my SurfShelf, now 45 minutes go by and I don’t even realize it. I watch TV, surf the net, post blogs, and play games.
Thank you for such a wonderful product.”

I am happy to respond to your email asking for comments on your product.
Thank you for offering it! It is such a great product.
The simple design is very functional and gives me a whole new activity to do while on my treadmill. It makes the time spent on my treadmill fly by. I saw the benefits of a walking, working treadmill on GMA probably 2 years ago and have been thinking of how to use my own equipment instead of investing in over the top expenses to get the same or similar benefit. With the SurfShelf, I use the incline on my treadmill on high, and the speed on low. I am able to use my laptop for an hour or more before remembering I’m actually doing a workout. (I use a heart rate monitor so I can be sure I am hitting my target heart rate) and I’m still able to type (not perfect) and surf. I love it. I read various websites, email and write my to-do lists.
Really love it! Thanks!

I LOVE this shelf! Because I can now multi-task – I am using my home treadmill virtually nightly – and many times I am walking far longer than the program! This is the best invention – has helped me continue to achieve my fitness goals! If you wish to talk by phone – feel free to call me tomorrow after 11 am at…

I bought the SurfShelf as a birthday gift for my daughter-in-law. She tells me that she loves it. She’s a teacher and is now able to use her laptop to do her “school work” while she’s on the treadmill.

“I received your product yesterday afternoon and got it all set up today. Very simple and easy to use. Just wanted to say thanks so much. I went to just try it out and check my email and before I knew it 30 minutes had gone by and it only felt like 10. I’ve put the word out on my MySpace bulletin. Hopefully more will seek out your product and give it a try. Really a top notch product.
Thanks again for helping me succeed in my healthier lifestyle.”

“We finally moved to our new apartment. I purchased the SurfShelf last week and I am loving it.
I used it for the first time yesterday (watched YouTube videos) and today (currently walking on my treadmill and typing this email!).
Thanks a lot! Great product!
Jennifer in La Crescenta CA
“I installed the SurfShelf last night and spent an hour and fifteen minutes on my treadmill!!!! Have never done that before, 30 minutes makes me want to shoot myself! I played Pogo and watched sitcoms and I actually had to tell myself to QUIT! I walked over 4 miles and burned 500 calories…YEAH!!!
I’m looking forward to many years with my SurfShelf and will highly recommend it to everyone I know. One of the gals at work said that she wished her gym had them, but they don’t. Maybe I should start selling them in San Diego for you! LOL…”

“Hi Randy, the SurfShelf has changed my life. I absolutely love it!
First, it was very easy to set up. I’m not a gadget/put it together kind of gal, so I always appreciate the visually obvious assembly vs having to read the directions. Okay, so I did take a peek at the directions, just to be sure I was doing it correctly. Check!
Second, I appreciate the design of the product. It wasn’t obvious to me at first, but the two polycarbonate pieces plus the adjustable straps give me so much flexibility. I can lower my laptop (fixed to the SurfShelf) to rest securely across my bike’s handlebars, which allows me to type. In fact, that is what I’m doing right now. I can also raise the SurfShelf, above my handlebars, if I want to watch a program, or don’t need maximal access to my keyboard.
Third, now that I can actually work, and workout, not only is there no excuse to cut my workouts short, I actually find myself cranking along, oblivious to the time, until the max time on my console (99 minutes) is up, and I have the option to restart. And, by the way, I have!
Finally, I’m giving some serious thought to expanding my home gym. I’d like to add another piece of equipment to mix it up, and take full advantage of all the time logged on my computer. There’s no reason I should sit at a desk, when I can accomplish the same things while moving!
I see so many great applications for this product; at home, at the gym, at the office, or any combo of gym/home/office use! We all should be moving more, and this is a great way to seamlessly work in a daily workout.
To better health!”

“We really like our SurfShelf. We returned the Netrunner because it did not fit and was horrible. The SurfShelf was easy to install and is very sturdy… I try to leave my laptop on the SurfShelf all the time so that I make myself workout when I am wasting time on the Internet!”
- Stephanie M. in Atlanta GA
“The SurfShelf is fabulous, the idea is great.
I was looking for a TV bracket for my treadmill (I was going to buy a small LED TV and attach it to my treadmill). The SurfShelf is a much better idea- when I discovered it by Google search- everything made sense.”
- Joel M. in Phoenix AZ
“I have recommended this product to many of my friends and coworkers.”
