As someone who works from home, I can confirm I don't get an adequate amount of steps in unless I put in a lot of effort. And let's be real — sometimes it's hard to commit to workouts or walks when you're tired after a long day. That said, I really do want to improve my fitness goals, which is why I've been eyeing under-desk treadmills on Amazon Canada. The Sperax Walking Pad is a great option that's currently on sale for $297 — it boasts tons of great reviews, and it's easy to transport and store.

If you're like me and want to increase your daily steps without purchasing a gym membership or having to depend on good ol' Canadian weather, this might be a good option for you, too.

Why you need it

The best part about this Amazon walking pad is that it comes fully assembled, so you can hop on it as soon as you unbox it. It supports up to 320 pounds and has a strong but quiet motor that won't distract you while you work (or binge Netflix).

It has a sleek design that won't be an eyesore in your space, but if you don't want it occupying your room, it can easily be slid under a bed or sofa thanks to its handy wheels.

The built-in LED screen will help you keep track of your progress, and the remote will help you adjust the speed without interrupting your stride.

It's perfect for homebodies, WFH-ers, stay-at-home moms and anyone who just wants to reach their step goals in the comfort of their own home.

Amazon reviewers say this walking pad is "great value," and one person claimed it's been "an excellent addition" to their "health and weight loss journey."

They continued to state that "the speed is not as high as machines at the gym." However, "it's enough to see results."

Another shopper said it's "much cheaper than buying a treadmill" and that it's a "good way to get the steps in during winter!"

One customer said it's "easy to assemble and use" and "lightweight and portable," making it easy to transport around the house.

One important thing users have noted is that the Amazon description states a 2.5HP motor, but the product manual says 1.5MP.

The final verdict

If you work from home, chances are you get fewer steps in than you should. You don't have to hit the gym or invest in an expensive treadmill to fix that — this walking pad is a great bang for your buck. You can even tuck it under your desk to multitask during the workday. And it's small-space approved since it won't take up any real estate. Note that it's not the fastest walking device out there, but it'll still help you see results.
