One of the sad aspects of modern life is that the average individual is spending more time glued to a desk than ever. We as a society have become sedentary by nature, spending hours on-end seated while we work. Not only is inactivity bad for our bodies, but it’s bad for our minds, too. Thankfully, modern technology has afforded us with products designed to help combat sluggishness. This post is all about my latest obsession, the FlexiSpot Desk Bike – V9
I’ve had a standing desk for my 9-6 for a while now, and I definitely feel like it has helped my various muscular and back issues. The Flexispot takes the concept of a standing desk, and ups the ante by offering not only the ability to stand and sit while you work, but to also pedal while you sit. A hybrid desk, the Flexispot gets your legs moving and your blood flowing, making your sitting time even more productive.
Here are some more details about the features of the bike:
FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro combines an on-demand, height-adjustable desk and exercise bike, with a minimal footprint.
The bike itself is easy on the joints, and offers “whisper quiet” pedaling at eight resistance settings.
The user-friendly adjustment lever moves the desk bike seat up or down with a gentle press.
The desk surface can be moved forward and backwards, and is large enough to accommodate a laptop, notebooks and a mobile phone.
An LCD display on the bike tracks your mileage, activity duration, and calories burned – just like any other piece of cardio equipment.
All in all, I appreciate having another way to get a workout in, on a piece of equipment that affords me the ability to do work while I do “work”, get it? I highly recommend this to anyone who finds themselves sitting for extended periods of time.
You can find the Flexispot Desk Bike on their website, or Amazon!
