What We Thought

I sit at my desk or on the couch working for a large portion of the day. Some days I am so inactive that it drives me insane. I tend to not sleep well at night on those days and then a restless time begins where I just feel BLAH.

Getting the DeskCycle Ellipse has changed things here big time. I feel like when I am getting restless I can add it under my desk and voila! I can use this just like an elliptical while still getting my work done.

Easy to carry around because it has a handle as well as little tabs that lock the pedals in place so you don’t get your hands caught.

Another perk is that this works great with my FitBit and I was able to create an account on DeskCycle to track my pedaling.

I know that I am talking about the perks a lot, but this has seriously made a difference for me and I know it will for others who are tied to their desks for hours on end every day. I compete in virtual races and I was getting more than behind with where I wanted to be because of work (I am not complaining about work, but was getting really disappointed with myself. Back in the summer months when I could use the garage gym and not freeze to death I was logging miles at a great and steady pace. Things happened here with life and a huge thing for me was losing our German Shepherd. I felt like I truly never got back on track after losing him and I just let my miles fall until they were nearly 0. I then got a FitBit which was a huge accountability partner for me and I was able to set a daily goal. With the DeskCycle Ellipse I am crushing goals left and right.


What are you waiting for? Now there is no excuse to be lazy just because you have a desk job. I see this being perfect for home offices but also on location as well. Just grab it and add to your office or even cubicle. It is nearly silent so no worries about disturbing anyone while working.

    I spend 10-12 hours a day parked in front of a computer screen (between work and personal use), so the DeskCycle would help me burn far more calories than me just sitting there like a bump on a log. It would go some distance toward combating my sedentary inclinations.
