Unclutterer's blog had a great idea of putting a hospital table over your treadmill for a laptop desk and exercising while reading that e-mail or surfing the Web. The tables generally are priced at $25-35 in salvage stores, require a clearance of 12-13" to get its foot under the treadmill bed. Older cheap machines (read: mine) cannot use that manual incline while using the desk. A laptop cooler without a vent underneath, and a foam or fabric pad supporting the laptop and fan, will damp vibration.
So--every time you go look something up, you get your ten-minute workout. My e-mail runs 60-70 minutes. Add a headphone, and you have music plus e-mail.
