Did you know that for every hour you sit at your desk you should be getting about 5 to 10 minutes of movement? If not, you have a higher risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and depression. For those of us who have loads of works which requires a desk, these risks seem inevitable. But not anymore. Introducing the DeskCycle.
The DeskCycle is a compact system that enables you to remain active even while sitting at your desk all day. Sliding right under your desk, the DeskCycle was made for the work environment.
As the name suggests, the DeskCycle is a cycling mechanism. Equipped with two pedals, you can select one of eight different resistance levels to power through your workday. The DeskCycle enables you to discreetly add a workout to your day which makes it perfect for super busy professionals.
The different resistance levels range from simple and easy pedalling all the way up to a high-intensity workout. Ingeniously, the DeskCycle pedals are bidirectional so you’re able to pedal forward and also in reverse. This versatility means you can extend your range of motion as well as target specific muscles that cycling on a traditional bike doesn’t offer.
Because the DeskCycle uses magnetic resistance instead of bands, it remains totally quiet so your co-workers won’t even know you’re busy burning calories (which you can conveniently track on the DeskCycle website). In addition to being great for your health and stamina, this type of movement while you work is great for increasing your productivity.
The DeskCycle is equipped with an easy to ready display to show your speed, time, distance, and calories so you can easily track your metrics. Specifically designed to remain under your desk, the DeskCycle has the lowest pedal height around. At only 10 inches tall, it fits under desks as low as 27 inches. The Velcro adjustable straps also make it easy to remain comfortable as you pedal.
It’s tough to put a price on improved health, happiness, and productivity, but the DeskCycle is certainly a bargain. For only $159 you can start to see your whole life improve. Have you ever tried other methods of exercise at work?
