FitDesk lets you pedal while you work

by Mark R

As someone who works from home for a majority of my job, I am concerned about my sedentary lifestyle.

I don’t consider myself “fat” but I believe that I’m probably overweight. That probably means that I am overweight if I am not willing to admit it. However, if I did my work from a FitDesk, I might find that at least my legs would be more muscular.

The FitDesk is a pretty simple concept based on putting a desk atop a stationary bike where the handlebars are. I’m not certain whether my work will be the same quality if I am pedaling and typing at the same time, but at least I am exercising.

Right now, I am typing this paragraph while I am sit-running in place. I have to admit, I am feeling the burn, but my typing is getting slower. I guess you can’t tell that since you are reading the end-product.

Still, I like the idea of typing, and then pedaling while I’m trying to figure out what to type next. I might as well be exercising my body as well as my mind. This is definitely better than putting my computer on a treadmill, or something.

I’m not certain how well a laptop would stay on this desk, as the one in the picture looks glued on or attached with double-stick tape. If you want to try it out, be prepared to spend $229.

You have got to get one of these. I did. Like you I work from home and really needed to get some exercise back in my life. So I started reading the reviews and sure enough lots of people have been using this product and getting incredible results. All kinds of things were mentioned. Losing 30lbs, feeling more awake, more productive, energy, pain management, and more. Its true and best of all the Mayo Clinic has done studies that prove this is the answer to lots of us with the same crisis caused by the new sedentary computer lifestyle.

Needs a generator to power the laptop.
